I love to watch MLB games. Except watching the games on TV, I had watched the game on site several times: at Angels, Dodgers, Tigers, Yankees, Giants, and so on.
Except MLB players talents and skills in pitching, hitting, and fielding, I also admire the grandeur and beauty of those baseball courts with highly standardized soft red clay covered in the infield and comfortable turf in the outfield. Players can display all they’ve got to do some incredible stunt such as diving for catching a falling fly ball before it becomes a hit.
Taiwan doesn’t have similar condition to build such baseball field as America did. Nevertheless, an expenditure of 1.2 billion TWD to refurbish an old field could make it a nearly brand new one and meet every possible standard required. But things turned out to be not as we thought. That "blue-eyed boy of Cai" gave us an absolutely unqualified field with that much money and made four players injured at very first reopening game.
From the reports and the pictures, can you really believe that is a newly refurbished field with 1.2 billion?
