Biographical Information[edit]

Chun-Pang Yuen has pitched for the Hong Kong national team.

He appeared once in the 2017 Asian Championship, relieving Tsz-Yin Jordan Wen at the end of a 10-0 loss to the Philippines; he allowed one hit in 1/3 of an inning. [1] He walked 3 of 4 batters he faced in the 2018 East Asian Baseball Cup, charged with one run in 1/3 of an inning. [2] He was roughed up in the 2018 World University Championship (0-2, 36.53, 22 BB in 5 2/3 IP), losing to the US and Czech Republic. He allowed nearly twice as many walks as runner-ups Wing-Tung Mok and Ching Connor Kwok, teammates of his who each walked 12, and he had the highest ERA of any qualifier. [3]

In the 2018 Asian Games, he allowed 7 runs and 4 homers in one inning but had a 0.00 ERA as all the runs wound up unearned. He relieved Mok with a 14-1 deficit, two on and no outs in the bottom of the 5th against eventual Bronze Medalists Taiwan. He walked Chen-Fei Lin intentionally, gave up a RBI single to Ju-Liang Tai and threw a wild pitch that ended the game due to the mercy rule. Against Gold Medal winner South Korea, he relieved Kwok in the 9th with a bases loaded, no outs and a 11-3 deficit. He retired Jae-hwan Kim on a sacrifice fly, then Ah-seop Son hit into a run-scoring error. Eui-ji Yang walked to load the bases. Jae-gyun Hwang hit a grand slam to make it 17-3. Hae-min Park flew out then Jung-hoo Lee homered. Ji-hwan Oh singled, then Jae-won Lee and Byung-ho Park hit back-to-back homers to make it 21-3 before Jae-hwan Kim flew out again. Phanuwat Sukmuang was the only other pitcher to allow four homers in the 2018 Asian Games. [4]
