CPBL to Begin Season April 11 - Without Fans

The China Professional Baseball League still has plans to open their season on April 11 according to CPBLstats.com. The only caveat is the games will be played without fans.

There is a possibility they may play the games with a maximum number of 150 season ticket holders, but that comes with conditions. The fans must wear masks at all time, there will be identity verification at the gate as well as temperature checks, a safe seat distancing plan must be in effect and there will be no vendors at the game.

The corona virus has not impacted Taiwan as badly as other countries. As of March 23 they have had 195 cases, just over 80 percent of them from overseas. Hong Kong also had a small number of cases giving them comfort to relax their strict social distancing standards. Recently, the corona virus cases have increased in Hong Kong, mainly because of foreign visitors that they have now prohibited foreign visitors from entering Hong Kong.
