The 6th Annual Cross-Strait Championship, Weekend Update

The 6th Annual Cross-Strait Championship 2016年第6屆中信盃海峽兩岸棒球交流賽 will be taking place next week from 6/15 - 6/18. Here's the full schedule of the tournament (sorry, it's in Chinese):

Most of the teams from Taiwan are from big corporations that consists of former professional/college players. The games will be broadcasted live on Taiwan ELTA sports channel.

Weekend Notes 

  • Some MLB Developmental Center news! Here are some good pictures they took recently and it looks like they were celebrating "Family Day." It's nice that MLB is getting involved with the community. Can't wait for more players to be signed and separated from there parents... 
  • Here's a video of Jiangsu Pegasus RHP Chu Jing Fang teaching us shoulder strengthening exercises. Take a look at it (he's a handsome fella).
  • Also, here's an interesting piece by New York Times about Japanese missionaries teaching baseball in Africa. 

Well, that's about it. Hopefully we'll hear more about Xu Gui Yuan since Rookie League is about to start. The GCL Orioles haven't update their roster yet, but I think he will definitely be there! Have a great night and peace out!


  1. I just happened to be here for no reason. never heard of chinese baseball before. Is it different than the normal baseball or its just the same thing?
