這幾個禮拜以來,最為大家討論的話題莫過於世界棒球經典賽了!

雖然中華隊最後無緣晉級,但這次賽中的傑出表現再次帶動台灣的棒球熱!

最近這股熱潮也引起媒體討論。

一起來看這則報導吧!Baseball Rallies in Taiwan


More than 20,000 screaming fans packed the stadium in Taichung to watch last Tuesday’s game against South Korea—Taiwan’s two previous games in the WBC had also been sellouts—while local sports bars were filled to bursting. Still other fans watched in the street, standing for hours staring at TVs in the windows of electronics stores.


上周二有超過2萬名尖叫的粉絲群聚在台中棒球場觀看台灣對南韓的球賽。

台灣在世界棒球經典賽(WBC) 的前兩場門票早就銷售一空。

國內的的運動場地也擠滿人潮。有些球迷站在街上好幾個小時只為觀看電器行櫥窗中的電視球賽轉播。

The fanaticism climbed another notch for Taiwan’s game against Japan at the Tokyo Dome on Friday. Television broadcasts of the game earned a record-breaking viewership of 15.47, which translates to 12 million people—roughly half of Taiwan’s population.


這股熱潮在週五於東京巨蛋舉辦的中華對日本賽事達到另一個高峰。

球賽轉播的收視率打破紀錄,達到15.47%。

以此換算約有1200萬的觀看人次,將近台灣人口的一半!

Although a defensive slip-up in the 8th inning handed Japan the victory, Taiwanese fans expressed gratitude on the Internet, saying that though the team hadn’t gained a spot in the semifinal, it had returned a champion.


雖然中華隊在第八局中華隊攻守戰時因出差錯而讓日本獲勝,

台灣的球迷仍在網路上表示對中華隊的謝意。

他們說,雖然中華隊無緣進入準決賽,這場比賽卻再度凝聚台灣人的心。

“Thank you Chinese Taipei for reviving my passion in baseball. You have made me proud to be a Taiwanese,” read one message posted in a local baseball chat room.


ʺ感謝中華隊,讓我熄滅以久的熱情有被燃起的感覺!!

你們讓我為身為台灣人感到驕傲!。台
