Victor Garate To Pitch in Japan?

Victor Garate, who pitched for Greeneville in 2005, just returned from a trip to Japan to assess his chances of playing pro ball in the far east. Garate, who appeared in four games for the Washington Nationals in 2009, but spent this year between AA & AAA, is a free agent. He will be playing winter ball in his native Venezuela for the Caracas Leones. Here is a google translated quote from his interview with beisebolvenezolano.net

"I liked being there (Japan), but is a completely different culture, food, people, streets. Should you work in Japan will have to adapt and adjust to the system of life. But I'm looking at different deals. "
