TAIPEI, Taiwan — Nippon Ham Fighters outfielder Yang Dai-kang (陽岱鋼) has said he would “love” to
represent Taiwan at the 2017 World Baseball Classic (WBC), but warned he was still recovering from injury.
Taiwan will head to Seoul next March to compete in a round-robin series of pool matches against South Korea, the Netherlands and Israel as part of the WBC’s first round.
“I’ve never been to Korea before, so I would really like to go there. The Korean side is extremely competitive and never gives up,” said Yang, who has played for over a decade in Japan’s Nippon Professional Baseball league (NPB).
“I will do my best if the coach and selection team decides to put me in the side for the WBC.”
But the outfielder added he was still undergoing rehabilitation for an injury gained back in August.
