Slightly old news now, but I thought it worth a quick mention.

Via Taiwan News, Sports Affair Council Minister Tai Hsia-ling insists that the league will not disappear.

"We will not allow the Chinese Professional Baseball League (CPBL) to disappear or Brother Elephants to be disbanded," said Sports Affairs Council Minister Tai hsia-ling at an inter-ministerial meeting aimed at figuring out ways and means to keep the CPBL afloat.
