Hisashi Iwakuma: It was the WBC

by on Oct.08, 2010 @ 3:52 pm, under NPB

Hisashi Iwakuma worked out at Eagles Stadium yesterday and spoke directly to the media for the first time since news that he'll be posted broke.  He told reporters that he was grateful to the Eagles for the opportunity and that it was pitching at the 2009 WBC that got him thinking about playing in the US.  He also said that he formally approached the Eagles about posting in October.

It seems Iwakuma doesn't have any favorites amongst the 30 MLB teams (not that he really has a choice anyway).  He also plans on heading to the US with his entire family.
