Taiwan Fans Upset With Dodgers

TAIWAN – Uni-Presidet Lions hurler Wei-Lun Pan will be one of the starting pitchers the Chinese Professional Baseball League (CPBL) All-Stars trot out against the Los Angeles Dodgers when the MLB Taiwan Series begins this weekend, according  to the Taiwan Baseball website. The remaining two starting assignments are still undetermined.

The Dodgers will play three exhibition games against a squad of CPBL All-Stars on March 12 and 13 in Taipei, and on March 14 in Kaohsiung.

Taiwanese baseball fans have begun requesting refunds from local organizers after the Dodgers announced last week that only three starters would be making the trip. Disgruntled fans have even started a Facebook page to demand their money back.

Taipei Mayor Hau Lung-bin will sing the Republic of China national anthem along with baseball players from four elementary schools at the opening of two exhibition games in Taipei.

A teammate of Pan, right-hander Yi-Chen Chen, touched 93 mph Saturday during his start against the La New Bears. The two Taiwanese hurlers will join former Major Leaguer Luther Hackman to form a starting rotation that could propel the Uni-President club to a third consecutive CPBL championship.
