Nippon Professional Baseball secretary general Atsushi Ihara said Tuesday that this year’s Asia Series is a chance to show off baseball’s potential for the International Olympic Committee.

Ihara revealed that the tournament pitting Asia’s national champions, will take place in Taiwan in November, just before the IOC is scheduled to meet in an extraordinary session on Dec. 8 in Monaco. At that time, the IOC will discuss proposals to modify the current Olympic program.
