CPBL Reopens With 1000 Fans Per Game
After one month of playing baseball in the empty stadiums, the Taiwanese baseball fans will be able to attend the CPBL games starting May 8.
The Taiwan CDC initially gave the league the green light to reopen its game with a limit of 250 fans per game on May 2. However, the CPBL decided to press for more and resubmitted a new proposal for 1000 fans per game.
On May 5, the CDC issued a new recommendation of 1000 fans per game to the CPBL. Should the league and the teams able to meet the CDC guidelines, they will be able to reopen its games to the public with a limit of 1000 fans.
On May 6, the CDC gave the official approved to the CPBL to reopen its games with a limit of 1000 fans.
According to the CPBL commissioner, the league will comply with the CDC recommendations by implementing the following policies on May 8.
- All ticket holders will need to provide their real name.
- Fans must practice social distancing at the games.
- Seating will be spaced out between fans.
- Fans have to wear a mask the entire game.
- League will have temperature screening devices at the gate.
Wow, that’s a lot faster than expected. It did seem like a gradual approach: 250, then 500 and maybe 1000 in the second half, would make a lot more sense.
Donn Roach already appears to be on thin ice. He hasn’t looked good in any of his four starts so far. He better pitch better in his next two or three starts, or Logan Darnell is going to take his major league spot.
Yeah, I’m surprised the CDC went with 1000 recommendation as well.
Yeah, I think he might be the first one to get demoted to the minor league once Logan Darnell is ready.
