Are you sure that these players will represent Taiwan during the World Cup and the Olympic Qualifications.
I assumed they would play with the same team like they used during Intercontinental and the Asia Cup.
So including the 'professional' players.

Was wondering about that also....

Can the NT have players from professional leagues- like our players in the NPB and MLB. Even the CPBL

Like, I said this is a training list. They will def. represent the country in Holland and in Italy.

As for the World Cup, they will draw from these players to play in that tourney. Will they add players from the US/Japan/and CPBL? It's possible, but then again for strategic purposes and since the Asian Qualifier is just a few weeks after the Cup, who knows?

Regarding the Olympic Qualifiers...that's a different story. I'm assuming that the best available players will represent Taiwan in order to try and qualify for the Olympics. So, there's a chance that one or two of these guys (most likely a pitcher - although OF Chan was selected to play in the WBC) might make that roster.
