2012 World Baseball Classic Qualifier Venues & Fields


Based on all the comments from folks in Taiwan and Panama the ground crews have done a wonderful job with the renovations and field maintenance operations of Rod Carew Stadium, Panama  and New Taipei City Stadium, Taipei.   In Taiwan they renovated all the mounds added 50 tons of clay to the infield and overseeded..  At Rod Carew a totally new field was constructed as the old one had become slow to drain.   The Zoysia turf at Rod Carew is only 3 weeks old.  But holding up ok.

Great job to the guys in both sites.
