Description

"Taiwan's adopted national sport is . . . a strictly Japanese phenomenon in both flavor and historical development . . . . During the Japanese occupation at the beginnings of twentieth century, baseball was a game taught exclusively to Japanese immigrant children. . . . Postal workers and army personnel established the first adult teams in the southern outpost of Tainan in 1910."
