Long waiting response from Nippon Professional Baseball Player Association could come soon.
Finally, after numerous talks between Nippon Professional Baseball and their player association, NPBPA is expected to finalize their decision on inaugural World Baseball Classic.
Based on the sources familiar with the talks, two sites meet Wednesday but did not reach any agreement. However, player association are close to reaching a conclusion and are likely to notify NPB by Friday, which means that we will soon know the decision from most powerful professional baseball league outside America.
