Morse, Detwiler to represent Nats in Taiwan
WASHINGTON -- Outfielder Michael Morse and left-hander Ross Detwiler will represent the Nationals at the 2011 Taiwan All-Star Series.

Right-hander Chien-Ming Wang is also expected to be part of the series, and reports are that he will play for the Chinese Taipei national team.

The Taiwan All-Star Series will consist of five games played between Nov. 1-6 in three cities: New Taipei City (Xinzhuang Stadium) on Nov. 1, Taichung (Intercontinental Stadium) from Nov. 3-4 and Kaohsiung (Chengcing Lake Stadium) from Nov. 5-6. Each game will feature MLB All-Stars playing Chinese Taipei.

The most recent MLB trip to Taiwan was in March 2010, when the Dodgers traveled there for a two-game series against the Chinese Professional Baseball League All-Stars.

"It's an honor to go," said Morse, who led the Nationals in home runs, RBIs and batting average. "It's like being on the All-Star team. To be picked for something like this is truly an accomplishment. I'm looking forward to it."
