Hsinchu CKS Baseball Stadium (Hsinchu Chiang Kai-shek Baseball Stadium) (Chinese: 新竹市立中正棒球場; pinyin: Xīnzhú Shìlì Zhōngzhèng Bàngqiú Chǎng) is a baseball stadium in Hsinchu City, Taiwan.

History[edit]

Originally it was to have been called the Hsinchu Sadaharu Oh Baseball Stadium (Chinese: 新竹縣立王貞治棒球場); however, during its construction the then President of the Republic of China, Chiang Kai-shek, died, and the stadium was renamed in his honor. Inaugurated on 27 November 1976, the stadium has been in use ever since.
