He was quoted to say that he would not be suprirsed if in some years there would be Finnish players entertaining a chance to play in MLB.

The ball in Finnish pesäpallo ist a little bit heavier but smaller than in baseball

baseball: between 5 and 5 1⁄4 ounces and is 9 to 9 1⁄4 inches in circumference)
pesäpallo: between 5.6 and 5.8 ounces and is 8 1/2 and 8 3/4 inches in circumference)
I'm pretty sure there will be as more folks play the game or one similar to the game. There is a German born player right now in the Majors. Plays for the Twins, but can't think of his name right now. Damn, we just played them too
