Well, the current crop of junior pitching talent in Taiwan has been a big disappointment to me. However, it wasn't too long ago that several prominent pitchers from the high school class of 2003 ascended into the spotlight.
Semi-quoting an R. Kelly song, " '85 was a very good year, if you know what i mean my dear......"
1985 was the birth year for these 5 young pitchers:
1)Chien-Ming Chiang (Yomiuri Giants) 5/27/85
2)Chi-Hung Cheng (Toronto Blue Jays) 6/20/85
3)Wei-Yin Chen (Chunichi Dragons) 7/21/85
4)Ching-Lung Lo (Colorado Rockies) 8/20/85
5)Chia-An Huang (Seattle Mariners) 11/11/85
The development of premium young arms is vital to Taiwan's continued success on the international baseball stage.
