YJ Hsiao Selected by Hanshin Tigers in the First Round....

Yi-Jie Hsiao (Ikketsu Sho) joins current Nippon Ham player - IF Chung-Shou Yang as a first round pick of the NPB draft. Hsiao, a RHP, was the Tigers' first pick in this year's draft.

The Tigers now have two Taiwanese players in their system - Hsiao joins OF Wei-Chu Lin, who was selected by the Tigers in the 7th round of the 2003 draft.
The former Taiwanese youth NT member (on the '01 youth NT that included YF Lin, CA Huang, WY Chen, CM Chiang, & SA Kuo) idolizes current Yokohama star Daisuke Miura.
