The World Series is over, but there will be baseball on television tonight.
Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson are headlining a group of MLB all-stars on a five-game exhibition tour of Taiwan. The group arrived Sunday, and Jack Curry writes that Cano was the pop star of the group. MLB even tweeted a picture of Cano surrounded by admiring flight attendants. Curry also wrote about Granderson settling into a kind of ambassador role, and MLB.com wrote about Cano being on the trip with his father.
You can watch the first game of the exhibition series tonight at 9 p.m. ET on MLB Network. The other games will be played on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Looking for another Yankees connection? It turns out the major of New Taipei City used to live in New York and calls himself a Yankees fan. And if you’d like to follow along, be sure to keep up with Cano’s twitter feed. He’s been tweeting like a mad man over there.
Just a heads up: The games are not being broadcast live. If you’d like to know what happened in the opener, click here.
