Former MLB stars to hold clinics in Taiwan in Feb.

Former Major League Baseball players Barry Larkin and Joseph Logan will visit Taiwan next month to conduct baseball clinics around the island, the American Institute in Taiwan announced yesterday.
"Sports offer unique opportunities for cross-cultural exchange and dialogue, especially among young people," said AIT spokesman Thomas Hodges in a released statement. "Given the high interest in baseball in Taiwan, I am certain that Mr. Larkin and Mr. Logan's visit will be both productive and memorable."
Larkin, a retired shortstop for the Cincinnati Reds and Logan, a former Montreal Expos pitcher, will visit Taiwan Feb. 1-7.
They are scheduled to conduct baseball clinics and interact with young people at schools, orphanages and social service organizations as a part of the U.S. Department of State's Sports Envoy program.
Larkin played shortstop for the Reds from 1986 through 2004. He was a key member of the Reds' 1990 World Series championship team and was named the National League's Most Valuable Player in 1995.
Over the course of his career Larkin earned three Gold Gloves and was named to the National League All-Star team twelve times. In 2010, in his first year of eligibility, he placed fifth in the balloting for the Baseball Hall of Fame.
