Samurai Japan hopefuls set to report to WBC training camp

With the third World Baseball Classic less than three weeks away, the 33 invitees to manager Koji Yamamoto’s Samurai Japan training camp will gather Thursday in Miyazaki and begin training the following day.

For comparison, most of the western teams don’t gather for national team camps until early March, when the Asian brackets will already be playing games.

That's also because spring training for the Asian pro teams starts about 2 weeks to a month earlier than US spring training. NPB teams also have winter minicamp for some players.
