Notes:
  • Around 3000 fans showed up for opening game! Also, around 27,000 people watched the game online!

  • Here are more PICTURES from the other day in case some of you aren't convinced that people watch baseball in China. 
  • The MLB reality show 一球成名is back and going around China promoting the game.

CBL 2016 Opening Day!

Professional baseball is back in China! Here are some pictures from the 2016 CBL Opening Day. Thanks to my friend Nikki Nee who provided me with such wonderful pictures. Now I have something so show for in this blog!









Just a few notes about CBL and Opening Day:
  • The Beijing Tigers trashed The Jiangsu Pegasus 17-12. I didn't see any other scores around the league, but I will list the complete boxscores after Memorial Day weekend. 
  • CBA, CBPL and KBO executives attended the opening ceremony. As you can see from above, a large amount of fans showed up for opening day. Baseball is quite popular in Wuxi. It's one of the top cities in China where baseball is tolerated...
  • From the official CBA website, it is noted that the same format will be used from last season. Top team of Division 2 plays the lowest ranking team in Division 1. The loser will be relegated. 
Here are additional links about CBL(All in Chinese, Sorry!)

Anyway, I hope you all have a great Memorial Day weekend. For my Non-American friends, have a great weekend as well. Have a great night!!!

Finally…Some worthwhile news! I know that this chart completely blows, but it’s the best I can do. Here’s a short update about CBL this year:

FORMAT:
It looks like they completely ditch last year’s format and went back to the original one. There will be plenty of baseball games this year with a total of 90 regular season matches and a best 3 of 5 championship series.  

TEAMS/VENUES:
Team
Venue
Beijing Tigers
Lucheng Stadium -北京芦城
Tsinghua University -清华大学 (4th week)
Shanghai Golden Eagles
Shanghai Jiao Tong University -上海交大
Jiangsu Pegasus
Wuxi Stadium -无锡基地
Guangdong Leopards
Guangzhou Huangcun Facility -广州黄村
Tianjin Lions
Tianjin Mission Park -天津团泊
Sichuan Dragons
Sichuan Aviation School -四川航校

I’m not sure why CBL couldn’t rent out Fengtai Stadium this year (one of the biggest stadium in China). I would assume financial problems, but didn’t CBA just signed a deal with Korean Baseball Organization?!

Anyway, that’s it for now! Hope this helped whoever wanted to go see a game in China. I’ll probably update a few more things if I find any. I hope you all had a spectacular Mother’s Day. Smell ya later!
