A national team from Chinese Taipei has been added to the participants of the 16th edition of the World Port Tournament. The Taiwanese baseball players replace South-Korea.
South-Korea would open the World Port Baseball Tournament on saturday 1 july with a game against the team Kingdom of the Netherlands. It would be for the first time that a Korean national team would participate at the World Port Baseball Tournament. Two months before the 16th edition of this Tournament in Rotterdam, South-Korea notified the organisation not to travel to the Netherlands.
Chinese Taipei has agreed to participate in the tournament and take over the place of South-Korea. This means that the Taiwanese baseball players will be the first opponent on 1 july at 19.00 of team Kingdom of the Netherlands.
