My first look at the CPBL involved a game in Tainan, and I had a really good time. I was welcomed to the park, the (free) food was great, and the atmosphere was as exciting as it could be for a game with such a low attendance. Everyone was involved, and cheering was a big part of the fan experience.
Sitting away from the fans, I noticed that the cheering sections didn't seem to be as energetic, though they were just as involved. Perhaps it was the lack of instruments and a microphone. Or maybe they just do things differently in Taichung - it is a smaller town after all. I had a great time, and tried to talk a little bit with the locals, but English is a rarity in these parts. It always seems when something goes well, though, they want to involve me in the celebrations with high fives or cheers!
