I am very excited about my upcoming trip to Taiwan to watch some baseball. My school closes for 3 days during the summer, so I have decided to take the long weekend and make the short flight to Taipei. I am really excited about getting out and seeing baseball in a new country.
Another thing that is really exciting me is the USA collegiate team will be playing games against Chinese Taipei. This is a 4 game set as a warm up for the World University Baseball Championships set to go down in Japan in August. I am really excited about seeing an international game. I have never seen one, and seeing the USA on foreign soil will be a lot of fun.
After spending my first day in Taipei to see the USA play, the plan is to take a train down to Tainan City to see the Sinon Bulls take on the 7-Eleven Lions. Then I will work my way back toward Taipei to see a few more games. The league in Taiwan is known as the Chinese Professional Baseball League.
On Friday the Sinon Bulls are taking on the Brother Elephants in Hsinchu City. Finally I will make my way back to Taipei on Saturday to see Sinon Bulls take on the Brother Elephants in Taipei City. I am a little disappointed at seeing the same teams over and over, but travel wise this seems to be the best route to go. On Sunday I will take a return flight back to SK.
