2007 World Cup in Taiwan-Final Preps

Chad_on_mower Over the past few weeks we have been preparing the Baseball fields in Taiwan for the 2007 World Cup.  Teinmu and Hsinsuan Stadium in Taipei are really coming along nicely as the mounds and plates have been rebuilt to MLB standards and the turf has taken a turn for the better.  With the tournament beginning November 6th its not a moment to soon.  Chad Kropff has been busy in Hsinsuan and Jeff Nancarrow has been growing in an entire new field over the past month at Teinmu.
