Mission to Japan Leads Heid to Baseball Scouting Career
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON -- Ted Heid, who served an LDS mission to Japan as a young man, is now director of Pacific Rim scouting for the Seattle Mariners baseball franchise. Heid has learned that baseball is a bridge between US culture and Japan, "Out of the ruins of the bomb, one of the first things they built was a baseball park. . . During the allied occupation, baseball was a big part of that country coming back together. Our armed forces rebuilt fields right away. Our servicemen liked it because they could play, and it was a chance for Japanese and Americans to play against each other."
