MLB Network to show Taiwan series

MLB Network will televise all five games of the upcoming Taiwan All-Star Series that will see a team of major leaguers (including several members of the Nationals) travel to Asia to face an squad of players from Taiwan.

Michael Morse, Ross Detwiler and Collin Balester are all slated to make the trip to Taiwan and play for the MLB club. Chien-Ming Wang, who hopes to re-sign with the Nationals in the coming weeks, is scheduled to pitch for his native country against the big leaguers.

In addition to Morse, Detwiler and Balester, the MLB roster includes the Yankees' Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson, the Tigers' Miguel Cabrera, the Giants' Pablo Sandoval and the Diamondbacks' Ryan Roberts. San Francisco's Bruce Bochy will manage the team.

Here's the full schedule for the series. All games will be shown on tape delay...

Nov. 1 -- MLB vs. Taiwan at New Taipai City, 9 p.m.
Nov. 3 -- MLB vs. Taiwan at Taichung, 9 p.m.
Nov. 4 -- MLB vs. Taiwan at Taichung, 9 p.m.
Nov. 5 -- MLB vs. Taiwan at Kaohsiung, 5 p.m.
Nov. 6 -- MLB vs. Taiwan at Kaohsiung, 9 p.m.

Mark, I heard Miguel Cabrera is not going. Something about a sore shoulder. Sore?

Cool. Was also hoping that MLB Network might pick up the AFL rising stars and championship games again but haven't turned up anything on that for this year.

This is a good exposure for Taiwan's baseball. I heard that the Chinese Taipei baseball games attracts tourists. I am an avid baseball fan and I'll be sure to book a game next year when I visit Taiwan.
