The 15th Annual Taiwan Heritage Event took place out at Citifield in Flushing on Saturday evening, September 7th under a beautiful pre-autumn sky. With several hundred Taiwanese attendees, an excited stadium celebrated this special annual event. Upon entering the stadium grounds, fans were welcomed with a Taiwan Tourism booth, where Taiwan travel information was readily available, along with the opportunity to spin the wheel and win prizes.
The most exciting moment happened when Taiwan You Tube Influencer Tsai A-Ga and his family, with over one million followers, took to the field to throw out the opening pitch. Happening up on the big screen was the warm welcome from Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen, which was followed by a colorful film showcasing the beauty of Taiwan for the 1,000’s of Mets fans in attendance for the upcoming game.
Prior to the start of the game, Taiwan Ambassador Lily Hsu, and Taiwan Tourism Director Claire Wen, were the recipients of the NY Mets Spirit Award, taking place just behind home plate.
