Biographical Information[edit]

Chun-Hsiung Lu played in the TML and the CPBL.

Lu represented Taiwan in the 1990 Junior World Championship, 1991 Junior World Championship, and 1993 Universiade. The Kaoping Fala signed Tsai when the Taiwan Major League formed in 1997. Lu only played 6 games in his rookie year, but he broke out in the next year. Lu batted .232/.286/.288 in 1998, and hit .268/.341/.333 in 1999. 2000 was Lu's career year, as he recorded a .275/.326/.363, was selected into the All-Star Game, and won his only Best Ten award as a second baseman. Lu hit .277/.343/.339 with a career-high 16 stolen bases in 2002.

When the two leagues merged in 2003, Lu was assigned to the First Financial Holdings Agan. The Tamsui native hit .203/.259/.263 in the first year in the CPBL. When the Agan turned into La New Bears, Lu was named the first captain in the team history. He batted .236/.304/.287 in that year, and hit .225/.267/.261 in 2005. In 2006, Lu had the best performance since he joined the CPBL, batting .276/.330/.336 with a career-high 31 RBI. The 34-year-old infielder regressed in 2007, as his batting line fell to .218/.228/.244. The bears released Lu on the end of the year, and the Chinatrust Whales signed him in 2008. The veteran still couldn't find his contact ability again, and he was released a final time when he hit .190/.271/.258 with the Whales.

Overall, Lu had hit .244/.304/.304 in eleven seasons in the TML and the CPBL.
