Live Baseball? The CPBL is Playing!

If you are going crazy without live baseball, the CPBL may help.

The Chinese Professional Baseball League (CPBL) is the top tier professional baseball league in Taiwan with four teams in this top division (Rakuten Monkeys, Chinatrust Brothers, Uni-President Lions and Fubon Guardians).  The skill level in the CPBL is close to Double A here in the MiLB.

Their league started the season on April 11th… in empty stadiums filled with cardboard and mannequin fans, complete with a robot band!  It is definitely interesting to watch, but honestly if you are a fan of baseball, you will get into the game and not even notice the empty stands.

Americans are able to watch the online streams for free. Weekday games start at 6:30 AM EST time, and weekend games start at 5:00 AM EST time.

  1. Last year on my way to Japan. I stopped off in Taiwan to see a couple of games. It was fun…the fans got into it. Korea is also fun
    .I do have a strong preference for Japan..if I remember how I will send some pictures to you.
