The Beijing Tigers are gunning for a sweep today in their best-of-five China Baseball League championship series with the Tianjin Lions. Game 3 starts at 3 pm today at Beijing’s Lu Cheng Stadium. A win would give Beijing its third consecutive CBL title. According to the league website (English version) today’s game will be broadcast by Beijing Television, and Shanghaiist admittedly has no idea whether we get that channel in Shanghai or not. We’ll be surfing the channels at game time, and if we find the game we’ll post the channel info here. (UPDATE: We can’t find the game on our TV, not even on BTV-1. But we did find golf, cycling, badminton, archery, tennis, bull fighting and, yes, the Teletubbies.)
They have pro baseball in China? You bet. Well, kind of.
UPDATE: Beijing won, 10-5 (in Chinese).
