Acting Kaohsiung Mayor Yeh Chu-lan (葉菊蘭) has promised to earmark funds for schools' baseball training programs to help nurture baseball talent. Yeh made the promise during a question-and-answer session at the Kaohsiung City Council on Friday. Democratic Progressive Party Councilor Chen Hsin-yu (陳幸妤) said that scores of elementary and junior high schools in the city don't have enough money for their baseball programs. Chen cited the baseball training program at Fuhsin Elementary School, where most of the students are Aboriginal, as one example of a program facing financial difficulties. The lawmaker suggested that the city government provide NT$1,000 per month for each of the school's 75 baseball players.
