CPBL (Chinese Professional Baseball League) has named Luo Kuo-Chang as team manager for the All-Star squad, which plays next month in Japan's Tokyo Dome.
Luo's appointment to take charge was confirmed following a meeting of all four CPBL ballclub executives and league officials.
He replaces the former Uni-President Lions skipper Lu Wen Sheng, who left his post due to family and personal reasons last week.
Already on the coaching staff of the Uni-President club, Luo was a four-time gold-glove winner and a standout player in the CPBL for the Lions team from 1994 to 2002.
The upcoming friendly game is billed as "East Japan Earthquake Relief Baseball Match" at the Tokyo Dome.
It is played between all-star squads of CPBL and Japan's NPB on March 10, with portions of the proceeds going to rebuilding efforts and residents of areas affected by last year's big tremor disaster.
