In the opening game of Taiwan’s annual Little League Championship
tournament, Tainan broke a deadlock to score five late runs to defeat Yilan County 13-8 yesterday.
Tainan Mayor William Lai attended the game at Taipei’s Hsinsheng Park Baseball Field. Lai brought many supporters from the Tainan area to cheer on the team at the week-long tournament known as the Herbalife Cup, which is for under-12 baseball players from top elementary-school teams chosen to represent their county or city.
This year’s Herbalife Cup series is also to decide coaches for the national squad to compete in the World Baseball Softball Conference (WBSC) U-12 Baseball World Cup Championship, which Tainan is hosting in July. [FULL STORY]
