Sold out? Wow, that is some way good news for the CPBL.

BC said...

are CPBL season openers normally sold out???

CMW always plays pretty bad in spring warm up games... but 5 runs given up to a minor league team is just a little bit worrying. im confident he'll play well when the real season starts though

TTT said...

Great way to start off the season.....hopefully the #'s keep up.

TTT said...

I believe it's the first opening day sellout in 6 years.

BC said...

I wonder if any of this had to do with the NT's loss to China
