Ray Chang hailed the biggest hit of his life after his two-run single secured China's win over Brazil and a spot in the 2017 World Baseball Classic, a result which looks set to boost the sport in the giant country.
Shortstop Chang, who also starred at the tournament's last edition in 2009, stepped up with China trailing 1-2 in the bottom of the eighth with the bases loaded, and fired left to make it 3-2. China eventually won the game late on Tuesday 5-2.
"No doubt, that was the biggest hit of my life," said the Kansas City-born minor leaguer.
