Premier 12 Taiwan Roster

Taiwan will have a number of players on their roster who play in their professional league (CPBL) as well as players from the Japanese professional league (NPB) and players from the United States minor leagues not on a major league 40 man roster. Fu-Te Ni pitched for the Detroit Tigers in the major leagues before returning to Taiwan. A major attraction from the CPBL is Kuo-Hui Hao who broke the record this year for most homeruns in a season. It is a young team with a quarter of the players aged 25 or younger. With the pool play being held in Taiwan and the crowd behind them, they should be a team to watch for advancement to the semi-finals and finals in Japan.
