Chia-Ming Tu would lead the tourney with an .800 BA, while Kuan-Yi Lee won the HR crown (with 1). The tourney MVP would go to their teammate Kuan-Yu Shih.
With two aces, this team should fare very well in the US.
The reps from Taichung in the Pony division also wrapped up a spot in Washington, PA by beating both Japan 12-4 and South Korea 8-0 to take the Asia-Pacific crown.
Over in Hong Kong (LL action), the boys lost 4-2 to South Korea, putting them in a must-win situation over the host team tomorrow. The team will also need some help from the Thai team (either a win or score a lot of runs).
