This is the first title Jiangsu has ever won after being such a lousy team for so long. Congratulations!

Some other interesting news...

  • Here's a short article about the MLB Elite Camp out in Netherlands. Players from China and New Zealand will also be participating this year. Any international news is always good news!
  • If you guys haven't heard, Taiwanese pitcher Chih-Wei Hu was traded from the Minnesota Twins to Tampa Bay Rays before the trade deadline. He's pitching great this year and also has a palm ball (kind of like a change up) which no one ever throws anymore. Whereever he is, I hope he'll make it to the majors!
Anyway, that is all. Go out and enjoy the weekend! Thanks for reading and have a great night!
