【看英文中國郵報學英文】週三美國職棒大聯盟證實波士頓紅襪隊以75萬美金 (約台幣2325萬) 簽下台灣20歲棒球好手劉致榮。

U.S. Major League Baseball confirmed on Wednesday that the Red Sox signed 20-year-old pitcher Liu Chih-Jung (劉致榮) for $750,000 (NT$23 million). 

劉致榮曾投出最快時速158公里的快速球,近期更獲得舉辦於台中的亞洲棒球錦標賽MVP。

由於最近幾場比賽表現優異,劉致榮將代表中華隊參加舉辦於日本的世界棒球12強賽。

Due to his good performance in previous competitions, Liu was enlisted in the Chinese Taipei team in the WBSC Premier 12 (世界棒球12強賽). The tournament will be held in Japan between Nov. 2 and Nov. 17. 

劉致榮不論是當投手還是打手都有突出的表現。然而,高中畢業後劉致榮因肩膀受傷休息兩年,直到今年九月才復出代表文化大學參加梅花旗大學棒球錦標賽,投出158公里快速球驚艷全場。

Liu can play as both pitcher and batter. Yet, after he rested for two years because of a shoulder injury, he returned to the mound and played as a pitcher on behalf of Culture University in Taiwan’s national college baseball competition earlier this year.
