A good beginning for Hu, who collected two extra-base hits including a solo shot tonight.

I had the pleasure of going to Williamsort twice- 1995 (they won it all!) and 2004 (they lost to a Latin American team). It's amazing to watch all of these teams execute plays like pros. Of course, it's also exciting to cheer on our boys from Taiwan. I really, really hope they win this weekend. I'd be making my third trip to PA if they do.

One thing I did see in 2004 was that our coach was steaming for losing to Latin America. Apparently, their pitcher was "tipping" his pitches but yet our hitters couldn't put together enough hits to win. Our coach was yelling and screaming so obviously it wasn't too much "fun" for our boys. They truely looked scared being chewed out right in front of the international media. Anyway, best of luck this weekend. I hope to see them later this summer. Go Taiwan!
