Baseball fans in the U.S. are excited about the first day of the regular season. And Xu Guiyuan, a young Chinese player, has a good shot in breaking into the Major Leagues. CCTV America's Nitza Soledad Perez reports.

The 20-year-old is trying to become the first player from China to make it big in U.S. Major League Baseball.

The left-handed first baseman already made history last summer when he became the first player signed from one of the U.S. league’s three development centers in China and later joined the Baltimore Orioles for minor league spring training in Florida.
