1994 CPBL

From BR Bullpen

The 1994 Chinese Professional Baseball League season was the 5th season for the Chinese Professional Baseball League. The young league continued to see lots of records, as George Hinshaw set a new mark in RBI, Sil Campusano in homers, Chien-Cheng Kuo in saves, Will Flynt in strikeouts and Yi-Hsin Chen tied the win record. The Brother Elephants won the 1994 Taiwan Series for their third straight title. I-Tseng Lin won the steal title, having led the league every season to that point. The league expanded foreign roster limits from four import players per team to seven, a process that would accelerate as the decade continued.
