Professional Baseball in Taiwan, 1990-Present
The Taiwanese talent when it comes to baseball succeeded at the professional level in the 1990s. This was the first time this happened since Taiwanese players joined Japan's professional leagues in the 1930s and 1940s. American major league teams were tempted by the talented players coming of age in Taiwan. The Cincinnati Reds tried for years to obtain the rights to Engjey Kao and Lai-hua Lee, known as the finest pitcher-catcher battery ever produced in Taiwan. Kao and Lee would become the first Taiwanese players in three decades to retrace the steps of several of their Jiayi elders and play professionally in Japan.
