2016 CPBL STATS Awards

With another year of baseball done and dusted, here’s our 2016 CPBL STATS Awards.  Instead of going for the standard play of the year, we’re going for some of the best overlooked moments from the 2016 CPBL season.

Best Pre-Game Event (最棒的開場節目)

For the first time in CPBL history.  CPBL partnered up with the Taiwanese Air Force to have Mirage 2000 flyover before the game to celebrate Taiwan’s Armed Forces Day.

Tiburcio is now working a hitting coach within the Cleveland Indians minor league system.

Best stadium photo (最美的球場照片)

Baseball fan Sam took this amazing photo of Tainan stadium prior the renovation.  The Tainan city decided to shift the position of the stadium light poles at the same time retire the 22 years old light poles.

Fastest home run trot (全壘打繞壘最快)

We know Lamigo Monkeys 陽耀勳 (Yang Yao-Hsun) is fast.  But how does Yang stack up against MLB’s Billy Hamilton and Adam Rosales in terms of the home run trot?
