Kuo Hong-chih in Major Leagues

Kuo Hong-chih in Major Leagues
24 year old left hander Kuo Hong-chih recently made his Major League debut with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He didn't have a good outing, however, as he surrendered two earned runs in 1/3 of an inning, walking two batters.

With the Double-A Jacksonville Suns, Kuo had a 1.91 ERA in 28.1 innings with 44 strikeouts. An interesting note is that he was the first high school player out of Taiwan to sign a professional contract in the United States when he inked with the Dodgers in 1999. I can see why. Kuo boasts a 97 mph fastball and a devastating curveball.

About

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
