Leading the way for Gao-Nong HS was junior 2-way star Wei-Da Su. Su had the highest BA and the most HR’s in the tourney. The 17 year old (DOB: 11/10/90) is another member of the talented HS class of 2009 (Yi-Hao Lin and Yao-Wen Chang have already signed professional contracts). Su, who stands 6'1" (T:R/B:L), is one of Gao-Nong's top pitchers (able to throw in the high 80's). However his ticket to a bigger and brighter future is his bat (and sweet swing).
