Chinese Taipei Wins Asia-Pacific Zone

WASHINGTON, PA (July 27, 2022) - Chinese Taipei has won PONY Baseball’s Asia-Pacific Zone to qualify for the 2022 DICK’S Sporting Goods PONY League World Series. 

After being unable to compete in last year’s World Series due to international travel restrictions, Taipei is excited to return and hopes to continue its streak as a perennial powerhouse.

Chinese Taipei has won a total of 10 PONY World Series, including back-to-back titles in 2015 and 2016 and 2018 and 2019. In recent years, Taipei’s pitching and defense have stymied the competition, and this year’s team is also strong defensively. 

“We are a team that values teamwork,” said the team’s coach, Chiu, Yao Yu. “Our strong defense is our advantage.” 

To prepare for the tournament, the team is continuing to practice its pitching and is sharpening its offensive skills.

“Before going to the PONY competition, we strengthened the training plan for pitchers and batters,” Chiu said. 

Chinese Taipei will play its first game in the 2022 DICK’S Sporting Goods PONY League World Series against Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, at 8:00 PM/ET on Friday, August 12, at Lew Hays PONY Field in Washington, PA.
