Sunday, October 30, 2011
TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) -- An All-Star team of major leaguers led by New York Yankees stars Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson has arrived in Taiwan on Sunday, less than 48 hours after the St. Louis Cardinals won Game 7 of a scintillating World Series.
The MLB All-Stars will play five games this week against a Taiwanese team that includes Washington Nationals pitcher Chien-Ming Wang, one of two Taiwanese now pitching in the majors.
Other members of the MLB squad include Pablo Sandoval of the San Francisco Giants and a pitching staff of Bill Bray, Ross Detwiler, Dillon Gee, Collin Balester, Jeremy Guthrie, Mark Melancon and Jose Veras.
