CPBL B-Side Volume #4
Every now and then, the team at CPBL STATS will bring you some of the overlooked moments from the CPBL season or what is happening in the Taiwanese baseball community. Just think of it as the lighter side of the CPBL.
Creature From Your Nightmare
Sir Topham Hatt from Thomas the Tank Engine was invited to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Reminds me of the masked killer from horror movies Valentine and The Stringers.

Very Catchy Theme Song
The Lamigo Monkeys 陳俊秀 (Chen Chun-Hsiu) theme song is an rendition of Howl’s Moving Castle ending theme. It is so catchy even the bullpen pitcher was dancing along with it during the game.
I Got You Buddy
With majority of the CPBL players all know each other quite well on and off the field. Sometime we get to witness the heart warming moment like this during the game.
The Lamigo Monkeys’ 王柏融 (Wang Po-Jung) was having a little problem putting on his elbow guard, so the Uni-Lions catcher 郭峻偉 (Kuo Chun-Wei) decided to help out. Wang then returned the good gesture from Kuo by hitting a single and stole second base.
Bare Hand Catch by The Fan
We love seeing fans making nice catch while at the game. Here is another one with fan making a bare hand catch.

Another LED Signage Broken by Foul Ball
It’s been a while since the last broken LED signage incident. The Monkeys’ 鍾承祐 (Chung Cheng-Yu) have broken the third LED signage in the 2017 season. This time is a multi panels too!
