Starved for Baseball

When the Rakuten Monkeys decided to provide temporary English broadcasts to five games they were not aware of how popular it would be. If people did not listen they would discontinue the English broadcasts.

People listened. There were 7 million views of the English commentary in the five games. That was enough for the three other teams to add an English broadcast.

The Twitter feed Eleven Sports provided the English broadcasts of the game. The Monkeys will now extend their English broadcasts to all 60 of their home games. Not only was their a brawl in one of the games, but the 2019 MVP Yu-Hsien Chu hit five homeruns in the first two games for the Monkeys.

The Uni President Lions will also use the Twitter feed Eleven Sports to broadcast their games. The Fubon Guardians will use their Twitter feed to broadcast games and have Chen Chin-Feng, the first Taiwan player to appear in the major leagues provide color commentary.

The Brothers will provide commentary on May 5.

The CPBL is taking advantage of being the only professional baseball league playing right now, though the KBO is scheduled to begin their games on May 5.
