From Erin Pote, regarding the Stone Family Auction:

Also, we are receiving press about the auction! Here are two links to click on to check it out:
Thank you to everyone who has so generously helped us in our efforts to raise money for the Stone's! We hope the auction is a huge success!
I've included a link in the right hand column.
*Some updates on the Aboriginal Tourney:
1)The government has reduced funding support for this tourney, which is a damned shame considering the fact that the grass roots beginning of the nation's fascination & success with the sport began with the legendary Hong-Yeh LL team.
2)Ku-Pao HS won 3-2 thanks to heralded IF Wei-Chen Wang's 2 hit night.
3)Yilan's Chung-Dao HS RHP Ming-Chie Lin topped out at 90 mph & sat at 89 mph in Friday's game. He has improved his velocity from 84 mph three months ago.
*There's been some discussions about reestablishing the national training/military team instead of the minor league system in the CPBL.
