Chiayi City Municipal Baseball Stadium (Chinese: 嘉義市立棒球場; pinyin: Jiāyì Shìlì Bàngqiúchǎng) is a multi-use stadium in Chiayi City, Taiwan. It is currently mostly used for baseball games and was ever the home stadium of Chinatrust Whales from 1998 to 2003. The stadium was originally built in 1918 during the Taiwan under Japanese rule era and has been repeatedly refurbished. After the last 1998 refurbishment this stadium can hold 10,000 people, and regularly holds Chinese Professional Baseball League (CPBL) games.[1]

Trivia[edit]

This stadium is not the Chiayi County Baseball Stadium located in Taibao City, Chiayi County. The Chiayi County Baseball Stadium was built in 1996 and had been substantially invested and maintained by the Taiwan Major League (TML) as the home stadium of the Chiayi-Tainan Luka. On the contrary, Chiayi Baseball Field has been mainly for the use of CPBL. Chiayi County Baseball Stadium has a smaller capacity and is currently derelict after TML's collapse in 2003.
