Gaijin

From BR Bullpen

Gaijin is a Japanese term or word meaning "foreigner". Originally, foreigner was synonymous with American, but Latin American ballplayers began making their way to Japan as well in the late 1970s and afterwards. Roster limits for foreign players in Japan have varied over the years. See Nippon Professional Baseball roster rules for more information.
