Major League Baseball All-Star and Hall of Fame nominee Barry Larkin will visit Taiwan as a Sports Envoy for the U.S. Department of State February 1-7, 2010. Former Montreal Expo pitcher Joe Logan will join Larkin for their second Sports Envoy program for the SportsUnited Office of the Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

During the six day trip, Larkin and Logan will visit Taipei, Kaohsiung, and other locations in Taiwan. The Envoys will conduct six baseball clinics, visit an orphanage and a school for at-risk youth and attend an exhibition baseball game between two Taipei high schools. They will also interact with ten youth from Taiwan who visited the United States in September 2009 on a Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs SportsUnited program.
