Biographical Information[edit]

Chun-Hui Chen had played in the CPBL for 11 years.

Chen was drafted by the Uni-President Lions in the 8th round of the 2003 CPBL Draft, and he spent his first 5 seasons primarily in the CPBL minor league; he only played 38 games combined in the top league.[1] He won the competition with Cheng-Hua Kao in 2009 for a backup spot at catcher, and he hit .276/.344/.345 as the backup behind Chih-Kang Kao. He was selected into the 2010 CPBL All-Star Game, but he was 0-for-1 (even backups made All-Star teams in the CPBL as there were two All-Star teams representing four CPBL teams). Chen ended up hitting .154/.241/.173 in 2010.[2]

The Taitung native played 43 games in 2011, but his batting line was .212/.269/.242, so he only had 9 appearances in 2012. When Chih-Kang Kao was injured in 2013, Chen became the starting catcher, and he hit .279/.319/.419 with 4 homers. He was also selected into the 2013 CPBL All-Star Game, and he hit a single against Tzu-Sheng Chen in the 8th inning. However, when young catchers like Chun-Wei Kuo joined the team, Chen lost his spot, and he only played 14 games in 2014. The veteran attended the 2015 CPBL All-Star Game, and he was 0-for-1. He ended up having a .316/.347/.368 batting line in 36 games in 2015, and Chen announced his retirement after this season. He became the battery coach for the Lions in 2020.

Overall, Chen hit .244/.295/.321 with 136 hits in 11 seasons in CPBL.
