Chinese Taipei Announce Roster for 2017 World Baseball Classic

Chinese Taipei Announce Roster for 2017 World Baseball Classic

Chinese Taipei has released its roster for the 2017 World Baseball Classic. Most of the players will come from the Chinese Professional Baseball League or CPBL. There will be a few that come from Japan’s Nippon Professional Baseball and only two from the minor leagues in the USA. The Lamigo Monkeys of the CPBL did not make any of their players available for the tournament unlike the other three teams in the league.

Chinese Taipei will play in Pool A in Seoul going up against the host South Korea, Israel, and the Netherlands. It will not be an easy road to Round 2 coming out of Seoul, but Chinese Taipei will have a lot of talent. They open up the WBC on Monday March 6th against Israel.

The guys over at CPBL English have a great post that shows every player’s stats from a year ago. You can find that by clicking here.
