[edit] Biographical Information

Chin-Hui Tsao pitched for Kaoping Fala of the Taiwan Major League in 1999 before signing with the Colorado Rockies.

In the 1999 World Port Tournament, Tsao pitched 3 scoreless innings for Taiwan.

On June 29, 2007, Tsao and Hong-Chih Kuo made history by being the first two Taiwan-born players to appear in the same game on the same major league team - the Los Angeles Dodgers. Tsao pitched four innings in the 2007 Asian Championship, striking out four and allowing three runs.

Tsao allowed two runs, 2 walks and one hit in 1 2/3 IP over 3 games in the 2008 Olympics for Taiwan, as one of their lesser hurlers. He was the second pick in the 2008 CPBL new player draft that December, chosen by the Brother Elephants.

In 2010, it was revealed Tsao had agreed to throw two CPBL games for gamblers. One was canceled due to a typhoon and the other game-throwing was canceled when not enough of his teammates agreed to go along. However, the revelations were enough to get Tsao banned from the league. His career appeared to be over at that point, but he found out that the ban did not apply to Major League Baseball and in 2015 he was invited to spring training by the Dodgers, the last big league team for which he had played.

Tsao is the uncle of Kuo-Hui Lo.
