Tainan City Announce Plan for New Baseball Facility

Asia-Pacific International Baseball Stadiums and Training Centers (Tainan City, Taiwan)
Based on early estimation, the budget for this project is roughly 53 million USD. The idea is to turn the city of Tainan into a spring training base for the CPBL, NPB and KBO teams.
During the baseball season, the Uni-Lions’ are likely to adopt the main stadium as their new home. As for the secondary stadium, Taiwanese National Development Squad is likely to move in and use it as their primary training ground. The stadium is also available to host Taiwan’s semi-pro Industrial League games.
What’s Within the New Baseball Complex
Situated next to the National Museum of Taiwan History, the 30 hectares of land will contain the following facilities:
- One international standard baseball stadium with night lighting systems and large screen systems. 15,000 fixed infield seats, 10,000 fixed outfield seats and a grandstand roof covering the infield section.
- One standard deputy stadium complies with international specifications. Basic night lighting system, electronic scoreboard and a temporary bleachers section with capacity of 500 seats.
- Two WBSC approved little league baseball stadiums for future WBSC U-12 Tournaments and domestic Little League games.
