Zhubei for speed and stadium/hsinchu for social?

So as a team of two people moving to Jubei, one working daily at the HSR maintenance station and the other one needing to jump on the HSR for a weekly commute to Taipei, what’s the least complicated way to get over to Hsinchu all the time? We are being told the rush-hour traffic over the river is not fun and we’ve had enough of that for two years in Taipei City, so are looking at Zhubei. Besides, the Stadium is in Zhubei. Also, do they let scratch softball leagues (youth and/or adult) play there? Any plans for an Eslite in Zhubei soon? Thanks[/b]
