The CPBL started giving trial English commentaries after the baseball season started April 11. Games are played behind closed doors and broadcast live on Eleven Sports Network and Twitter, for the first time since the league began in 1989.
Due to the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic, most sports have shut up shop. This includes baseball, which is not being played professionally anywhere else in the world but Taiwan.
The English broadcast is by Richard Wang (王雲慶) and fellow commentator Wayne McNeil. They have done five English-language broadcasts, as of April 22, and the games mainly take place at Taoyuan International Baseball Stadium. [FULL STORY]
