I remember watching highlights of a few big name players in their prime playing like Ken Griffey Jr, Sammy Sosa and David Ortiz.

MLB adds three players to all-star team to appear in Taiwan
Quote:
Taipei, Oct. 9 (CNA) Major League Baseball (MLB) confirmed Sunday that it will add two pitchers and one catcher to the roster of major leaguers who will play four exhibition games in Taichung and Kaohsiung in early November, according to organizers.

New York Mets pitcher Dillon Gee, Washington Nationals pitcher Ross Detwiler and Los Angeles Angels catcher Jeff Mathis were the latest players to be included to the Major League team.

New York Yankees infielder Robinson Cano and outfielder Curtis Granderson, Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera, and Washington Nationals catcher Ivan Rodriguez and first baseman Michael Morse will also appear in Taiwan.

Two Taiwanese major leaguers -- Chien-Ming Wang of the Nationals and Hong-chih Kuo of the Los Angeles Dodgers -- are expected to be part of an all-star team from Taiwan's Chinese Professional Baseball League (CPBL) that will face the MLB all-stars.

Meanwhile, the U.S. league has expressed an interest in adding a fifth game to the exhibition series, but the CPBL still has to agree, said Chang Che-chin, a spokesman for the event's promoter, Bros Sports Marketing.

"At this stage, we would not rule out any possibility, but we believe that four games is probably the maximum for CPBL players, especially after having just completed the IBAF Baseball World Cup in Panama," Chang said.

The four exhibition games will take place on Nov. 3-4 in Taichung and Nov.

I like it how that MLB is opening up to all areas of the Globe. Baseball is an International sport and the best of the players should be exposed around the world.

Wang looking forward to MLB exhibition games

Chien-ming Wang returns to Taiwan...
Quote:
Wang, his wife and son arrived at the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport at about 6am. They then took a High Speed Rail train to Greater Tainan, where he was born.
“It has been a long time since I last played with Taiwanese players,” Wang said at the airport, adding that he will do his best.
Wang also expressed joy at returning to his home country, though he appeared tired because of the long flight.
“The first thing I want to do now is go home and take a rest,” he said.

Major League Baseball All-Stars arrive in Taiwan

Here are some excerpts from the article...
Quote:
TAIPEI, Taiwan -- The stars of Major League Baseball might have been a bit jet-lagged when they arrived in Taipei on Sunday evening for the beginning of the 2011 Taiwan All-Star Series, but the passion of the local fans and the media on hand to welcome them gave the players a boost of adrenaline that will likely last all week.

As soon as the team of Major League All-Stars cleared customs and walked through the Taoyuan International Airport concourse, they were received by adoring fans who snapped photographs, took video and cheered them on -- often chanting their names...

"After all these years waiting, we finally have Major League All-Stars in Taiwan, where we are so passionate," said Peng Cheng-hao, vice president of the Chinese Taipei Baseball Association, in his opening statements. And soon after he spoke, the mayor of New Taipei City, Dr. Eric Liluan Chu, admitted to being a bit starstruck by the two Bronx Bombers in attendance, Granderson and Cano...

Cano said he heard great things about Taiwan from his father, former pitcher Jose Cano, who played for a Taiwanese team called the Wei Chuan Dragons in 1998 and '99. However, young Robbie never made it all the way across the globe from his native Dominican Republic to watch his dad in action.

"It's an honor to be here," Robinson Cano said. "I'm looking forward to playing against the best players in Taiwan. Also it's a dream come true. My dad played here for 11 months. Too bad I didn't make it here when I was young, but I'm happy now to be here and looking forward to the series."

Cano's sentiments were shared by Granderson, who played with Taiwanese pitcher Fu-Te Ni while a member of the Detroit Tigers, and said he still keeps the personalized glove with his name in Mandarin that Ni gave him as a gift. Granderson said he and Cano wanted to be a part of this trip when they first heard about it. Now, he can't wait to get started.
