2003 CPBL

From BR Bullpen

The 2003 Chinese Professional Baseball League season was won by the Brother Elephants, who took their last of three straight Taiwan Series. The league was marked by disparities with the absorption of two Taiwan Major League teams when that loop folded; the two newcomers posted abysmal records.
