WBC Star of the Day number 4

First off, I do realize I have had four different types of WBC related headlines. I have been slightly out of focus. Second, one of the great things about the WBC is even second tier games are interesting. I watched Brazil and China this morning. Neither team was going to advanced to the second round, but whoever won would punch their ticket to the 2017 Classic. Brazil had a lead late, and with the way China was playing, it looked pretty safe. An infield hit, some walks, and this guy came up to bat.

He is Ray Chang, a Chinese American, who plays AAA baseball. For team China however, he is Pete Rose and Derek Jeter all rolled into one. He hit a solid single to give China the lead which led to a total of five (count em, five!) runs in the inning. China won, and the emotion felt by the team would be indistinguishable from any championship team. One day, China and Brazil may make it to the WBC Finals, and hopefully Ray Chang and these players will be around to see the seeds that they planted grow.

Now I hope this guy makes the big leagues.
