Sammy Sosa wants to play for Dominican Republic

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usOutfielder Sammy Sosa said he wants to play for Dominican Republic in inaugural World Baseball Classic next March.

“It would be a great honor to represent my country,” Sosa said.

The 37-year-old slugger is not on the list of players that MLB announce on December 5th. He said he would formally announce his participation after signing with a new major league team for next season. Baltimore Orioles said last month that they do not plan to bring him back after he struggled in 2005.

“Like all athletes, I had a year with ups and downs, but I feel well enough physically and mentally to return next year and put up the numbers everyone expects,” said Sosa, who hit .221 with 14 homers and 45 RBI in 102 games during an injury-shortened season.

Other Dominican stars who have already announced their intention to play in the Classic include Albert Pujols, Alfonso Soriano, David Ortiz, Miguel Tejada, Manny Ramirez and Pedro Martinez, and Alex Rodriguez might join Dominican if he decided not to play for USA.

If Sosa play, he might have to hit at the bottom of the lineup or come off the bench.
