China to enter fall league (http://cbs.sportsline.com/mlb/story/10372189)

NEW YORK -- China will enter a team in the Arizona Fall League, and it will be coached by former major leaguers Jim Lefebvre and Bruce Hurst.
Barry Larkin, Tom Lawless and Duffy Dyer will assist in the instruction of the Chinese team, the first to participate in the Fall League. The United States also has a team in the Fall League, which starts Oct. 9 and includes players from big league teams who are not on 40-man rosters.

"The Olympics give us a unique opportunity to showcase baseball to the people of China, and we are happy to help the national team reach its potential," said Jimmie Lee Solomon, an executive vice president in the commissioner's office.

Major league teams might play exhibition games in China next March.

Any word on whether or not the Chinese team's uniforms will contain dangerous amounts of lead?
