MLB and MLBPA will bring All-Star Series to Taiwan in November

Major League Baseball (MLB) and the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA) today announced that a team of Major Leaguers will travel to Taiwan this November to play against the Chinese Taipei national team in the 2011 Taiwan All-Star Series.

The 2011 Taiwan All-Star Series will consist of five games played between November 2 - 6 in three different cities - New Taipei City (XinZhuang Stadium) on November 2, Taichung (Intercontinental Stadium) on November 3 and 4 and Kaohsiung (Chengcing Lake Stadium) on November 5 and 6. Each game will feature the MLB team playing the Chinese Taipei national team and all games will be broadcast live in Taiwan by FTV, Major League Baseball’s exclusive over-the-air broadcaster for regular season and postseason games.

Major League Baseball and the MLBPA will be selecting the MLB team and staff. A full roster and coaching staff will be released in October.

What were the odds?
