However, I do know that baseball is being played in small communities in many Chinese provinces. These amateur clubs that often post in Chinese forum called Baidu are looking to recruit more players everyday hoping to spread and teach the sport. Because of that, I was inspired to write a blog about Chinese baseball, hoping to be part of a movement that will popularize the sport!
Here are the lists of things I want to do with the blog:
- I will try and summarize any news about baseball development in China whether it’s published by MLB or Chinese Baseball League which is re-launching this year after being folded in 2011.
- Introduce various amateur clubs that are currently playing in many different cities. Hopefully they will let me use their pictures (if I can ask in Chinese…).
- I will try and use Weibo (which is kind of like Chinese Twitter) to reach out to professional players and interview them about baseball and their passion for it.
