The online English version of the Daily Mainichi has this less than harrowing account of people getting hurt in Japan rushing to buy extra editions of newspapers with stories about Japan's win in the WBC.
A fortune-teller who had set up a booth near the scene saw what happened. He said about 50 to 60 people rushed at newspaper company employees handing out the Extras and people fought to get a copy.
The fortune-teller said he could hear screams of "Cut it out," "Ouch" and "Stop pushing."
Oh! The humanity! (No one was seriously hurt.)
Meanwhile, Fidel Castro threw a parade for the Cuban team. The story is in Spanish, but it's interesting that they use Jeeps to show off the team.
And the WBC will most likely return in 2009, according to this report in the Wall Street Journal because it turned a profit of $10-15 million.
