Without Bonds and A-Rod, there is room for other sluggers to emerge in the international tournament. So who is leading in the long ball category as the second WBC gets underway?
The South Korean star Seung-Yeop Lee, is the current leader. He hit five dingers in 24 at-bats back in 2006. But Lee may not retain the title for long. He;s not on this year’s roster (although he did help his Yomiuri Giants beat Korea in a warmup game).
Without him, South Korea still beat China 14-0, invoking the “mercy rule” and ending the game. The mercy rule for pros?
