GOOD NEWSPAPER / SPORTS PAGE / LIVE TAIWAN MAJOR LEAGUE GAMES ON TWITTER FOR FREE IN ENGLISH
Spring has come and Opening Day baseball is nowhere to be seen. Spring Training was canceled and Major League Baseball postponed the start of the season as the United States battles the coronavirus pandemic.
But there’s new hope for fans sorely missing America’s past-time. They merely need to look across the world to Taiwan, where the island’s Chinese Professional Baseball League played the first Opening Day ballgame of the 2020 season on April 11.
In an attempt to raise the profile of Taiwanese baseball, Eleven Sports network is streaming home games for one Taiwanese team, the Rakuten Monkeys, live on Twitter with English commentary—for free. Simply visit the Eleven Sports on Twitter.
Baseball fans will get a look at baseball without fans in the stands. And, football style cheerleaders.
