In an effort to shore up their bullpen, the Cleveland Indians entered into an agreement with Japanese closer Ken Kobayashi. In a case of mistaken identity, the Indians thought they were signing Japanese closer Masahide Kobayahsi.

They realized their mistake after Ken Kobayashi insisted on a "hot dog stand in the bullpen" provision in the contract.
