*Taichung Gao-Nong senior IF Wei-Da Su's $200 K offer from the NY Yankees was confirmed by his HS coach - Mr. Lee. Lee indicated that in addition to the Yankees, the Red Sox, Rays, Royals, Mariners, and Tigers had all scouted Su. Su has hopes to play in the US, but only after attending college initially. Coach Lee believes that Su will need to play another position defensively (maybe 2B, 3B, or even C; he's currently a 1B) to help bolster his chances of playing abroad.
Speaking of Su, he was 2-4 with 2 RBI's as he helped Gao-Nong reach the quarterfinals of the Ta-Tung HS Cup.
Kao-Yuan HS and Ku-Pao HS have already advanced to the semifinals of the tourney.
