Taoyuan, May 1 (CNA) A video recording of American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) Director Brent Christensen throwing out the ceremonial first pitch was played at a Chinese Professional Baseball League (CPBL) game at Taoyuan International Baseball Stadium on Friday.

The video, which was prerecorded in the stadium's indoor warmup area, was broadcast live by Eleven Sports Taiwan on Twitter before the game between the CTBC Brothers and Rakuten Monkeys.

The recording showed Taoyuan Mayor Cheng Wen-tsan (鄭文燦) in the batter's box facing Christensen.

The AIT director, who also received a Rakuten jersey bearing his name from Cheng, was at the Brothers-Rakuten game as a special guest, a rare chance for an outside fan to see a game in person.
