Hu and Chen named to the 2006 All-Star Futures Game
Following in the footsteps of Chin-Feng Chen, Chin-Hui Tsao, and Chien-Ming Wang, infielders Chin-Lung Hu and Yung-Chi Chen have been named to the 2006 World roster. C.F. Chen was named to the World squad in 1999 and 2000. C.H. Tsao was on the roster in 2000 and 2003, while Wang joined Tsao on the 2003 roster. The game will take place July 9th in Pittsburgh's PNC park. The game should be broadcast on cable (probably ESPN) - I'll have specifics when the time nears.
Around the majors:
Bad news regarding Tsao. MLB.com is reporting that Tsao has experienced a setback in which he can only throw a session every 6 or 7 days (without pain-discomfort). The ETA for Tsao's return has been pushed back - Tsao himself was hoping for a return to the Bigs by his birthday - June 2.
