Chinese no-hitters in Taiwan’s Chinese Professional Baseball League

CPBL_logo.svgThere have been seven no-hitters thrown in the history of the Chinese Professional Baseball League, and four of them have been tossed by foreigners. Uni-President 7-Eleven Lions pitcher Pan “Du-Du” Wei-Lun, a Taiwan-native, came the closest to throwing a perfect game in 2008, with the only blemish in that coming on what should have been a routine putout as first baseman Kao Guo-ching bobbled a throw to the bag. Wei-Lun retired the other 27 Chinatrust Whales batters he faced.
