Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters pitcher Nick Martinez is still making a lot of adjustments to his new baseball life in Japan. He's had to acclimate himself to a new style of baseball, a new culture, the travel and learn how to pack for NPB road trips.

As far Japanese food, however, the sushi-loving native of Miami was in his comfort zone the moment he stepped off the plane.

"The food is great," Martinez told The Japan Times. "I love sushi and I've been crushing yakiniku (grilled meat). So, I haven't missed a beat with the food."
