Also, the probably-final roster for the Korean National Team at the WBC

Dan from MyKBO sent this along to me, although I may have tweeted it earlier this week: what is expected to be the final roster for the Korean national team for the World Baseball Classic, complete with uniform numbers, uniform names (because of the commonality of names like Kim and Lee, initials are common in Korea) and the team they play for usually:

Barring injuries or last-minute dropouts, this will almost certainly be the team that Korea puts out in March. As expected, it is almost entirely made up of KBO players, with two exceptions: Dae-Ho Lee, who now is with the Orix Buffalo of the NPB, and pitcher Won-Jun Jang, who plays for the Police team of the Korean Futures League. The Police team is made up of players who are doing their required two years of national service (all able-bodied Korean males need to do military service), and it’s likely that Jang would likely be in the KBO if he wasn’t doing his service.

I’ll have a more in-depth look at this roster sometime in the future.
