2014 CPBL

From BR Bullpen

The 2014 Chinese Professional Baseball League was the 25th CPBL season. There was one franchise shift, as Chinatrust bought the Brother Elephants, who became the Chinatrust Brother Elephants. The EDA Rhinos had the league leaders in all three Triple Crown categories and two of three pitching Triple Crown areas but did not make the 2014 Taiwan Series. The Lamigo Monkeys beat Chinatrust in the Series. Yi-Chuan Lin won his third CPBL MVP, the first player to do so.
