Several readers in Taiwan e-mailed this morning with news about the clinic the Yankees held in Taoyuan, which is about 45 minute drive from Taipei. Despite cold a wet weather, a nice crowd showed up.

The clinics will run through Sunday. The Yankees sent five members of their player development staff from Tampa.

A special guest today was Taiwan’s national hero, Chien-Ming Wang.

Given Wang’s popularity in Taiwan, many people there have become ardent fans of the Yankees. It’s good that the team is doing its part for baseball. And maybe this will help them find another player.

Here are some more photos from the event. Thanks to Joseph and Grace for sending these along:
