As Taiwan's baseball team advanced to the 2008 Beijing Olympics with a record of five wins and two losses, a detailed and informative exhibition on the history of the sport in Taiwan opened at the National Taiwan Museum, located in Taipei's 228 Memorial Park. With 2008 marking the centennial of the museum, this is the perfect time to review the history of Taiwan's national sport, and this exhibition is made all the more significant by the fact that 228 Memorial Park was the site of Taipei's baseball park between 1907 and 1957.
Running from March 4 through May 1, Home Run-The Glory Age has on display a range of artifacts and equipment, taking visitors on a journey through the development of baseball in Taiwan since 1906.
