Kansas City, U.S., April 3 (CNA) Taiwanese pitcher Chien-Ming Wang said Sunday that his return to the U.S. Major League after an absence of nearly three years was a realization of his dream.
“I’m just doing my utmost, and trying my best to return to the path I chose,” Wang said at a press conference at the Kansas City Royals’ home stadium, during which he confirmed that he was returning to majors after his non-roster spring training with the Royals.
Speaking with reporters from Taiwan, the right-hander, who was an ace in the New York Yankees before he was injured in 2008, stressed the importance of being oneself.
“Be yourself, stick to your own beliefs and realize your own dreams,” he said. “Don’t give up simply because of what people say. Just carry on.” [FULL STORY]
