NEW SPORTS ADMINISTRATION CHIEF TAKES OFFICE|林德福上任體育署長 首要協調中職.棒協
Finally some momentum for reform after Chinese Taipei's three defeats in the 2017 World Baseball Classic. The new head of the Sports Administration said that the Chinese Professional Baseball League will be responsible for organizing and training of the team for future first-class games instead of the original Chinese Taipei Baseball Association. A long-standing manager will also be appointed.
To deal with the tension between the Chinese Professional Baseball League and the Chinese Taipei Baseball Association, the new director-general of the Sports Administration Lin Te-fu has put the CPBL in charge of the recruitment, training, and competitions of the team for future first-class games.
==LIN TE-FU Director-General, Sports Administration==
To centralize the handling of recruitment, training, and competition affairs, we will put the CPBL in charge. This is the consensus reached by all three parties.
Minister of Education Pan Wen-chung hoped that Lin could mediate the conflicts and help form the best Chinese Taipei Team.
==PAN WEN-CHUNG Minister of Education ==
Forming a national team through such arrangement is, I believe, the expectation of the public.
President of National Taiwan University of Sport Lin Hua-wei hoped that a consensus can be reached to facilitate sports development in Taiwan.
==LIN HUA-WEI President, National Taiwan University of Sport==
I think all parties involved should sit down and communicate. I believe we have the same goal to form the best Chinese Taipei team.
Future game revenues will be used to recruit and train athletes. The CTBA will still be in charge of admission and registration affairs for future games.
