Japan Series

For the first time since 2006, MLB sent a team of All-Stars to Japan in November 2014. Instead of facing All-Stars from Japan's top domestic league, MLB stars took on Japan's national team -- dubbed Samurai Japan. The big league team, which featured stars such as Yasiel Puig, Evan Longoria and Jose Altuve, traveled to Osaka, Tokyo, Sapporo and Okinawa. Japan won the official five-game set, taking three out of five, as well as splitting the two exhibitions. Samurai Japan also no-hit the MLB All-Stars in Tokyo, a combined no-hitter by four pitchers.
