我很高興今天下午能在AIT接待嘉義市長涂醒哲。他聽說了我對於美國國民運動棒球的熱愛，特別帶來了紀念嘉農棒球隊的迷你版雕像。我們都覺得下次我可以到嘉義去走一走，瞭解一下嘉義深厚的棒球歷史，應該很有意思。謝謝涂市長順道來訪（swing by），還向我推銷了（pitch）到嘉義來趟輕旅行的點子！--- 梅健華。#FromAITDirector
I was very pleased to host Chiayi Mayor Twu Shiing-jer at AIT this afternoon. He knew about my passion for the great American pastime – baseball, so he presented to me a replica statuette commemorating Chiayi’s famous Kano baseball team. We agreed that it would be fun for me to visit Chiayi’s baseball museum in the future. Thanks Mayor Twu for “swinging” by AIT and “pitching” the idea of a trip to Chiayi…km
