CANBERRA, 21 March - The Canberra Cavalry and the Australian Baseball League, brought to you by Be the Influence: Tackling Binge Drinking, is pleased to announce that the 2013 ABL Champion Cavalry will be participating in the 2013 Asia Series this November. The prestigious tournament will be played over five days in Taichung, Taiwan.

The Asia Series will feature the champions of Nippon Professional Baseball League (Japan), the Korean Baseball Organisation (South Korea), Chinese Professional Baseball League (Taiwan), and the Chinese Baseball Association (China) will join the Cavalry in the six team-five country tournament. As host nation, Taiwan will have two representatives with the runner-up of the CPBL participating as well.

"We are very excited to be representing the Australian Baseball League in Asia Series," Cavalry General Manager Thom Carter said. "The 12-13 season was amazing and we hope to start the 13-14 season on the right foot heading to Taiwan. We want to continue to show the world how great Cavalry baseball and the city of Canberra are."

The tournament takes place the 15th - 20th of November. While the ABL schedule has not yet been finalised, this will fall during the early part of the season.

"If you have ever watched a game that has been televised out of Japan or Taiwan you know that there is a great baseball following and tradition in that region of the world," Cavalry General Manager Peter Bishell said. "Our players will be playing in sold out stadiums of 40,000 people. This will be great for them as they defend the Claxton Shield."
