CPBL’s opening game on April 12.

Taipei, May 6 (CNA) Taiwan's professional baseball league, which has played in empty stadiums since the beginning of the season, will open its games to 1,000 fans starting Friday, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced Wednesday.

CECC chief Chen Shih-chung (陳時中) said the CECC approved the Chinese Professional Baseball League's (CPBL's) proposal to admit up to 1,000 fans as part of measures it is taking to relax social distancing restrictions as the number of COVID-19 cases dwindles.

CPBL Secretary-General Feng Sheng-xian (馮勝賢) thanked the CECC for its decision and said the league has prepared detailed epidemic prevention measures for fan attendance at games.

Feng said the presence of fans will be a major morale boost for the CPBL, which has played more than 20 games without fans since its first game of the season at Taichung Intercontinental Baseball Stadium on April 12.    [FULL  STORY]
