Biographical Information[edit]

Liang-Tsung Ke caught in the TML and the CPBL.

Ke represented Taiwan in the 1990 World Youth Championship and 1992 World Junior Championship. The Kaoping Fala drafted Ke in the first round of 1997 TML draft, then traded him to the Taipei Gida for Chia-Yo Kuo. This was the first trade ever for the TML. Ke batted .288/.324/.361 in his rookie year, then recorded a .256/.288/.317 batting line in 1998. The Chiayi native was selected into the All-Star Game for the first time in his career in 1999, and also won the Gold Glove award as a catcher. Ke hit .253/.300/.311 with 10 steals this year. He extended his stable performance, when he hit .286/.323/.347 in the 2000, and participated in the All-Star Game again. Ke hit .278/.319/.333 and .272/.307/.319 respectively in the next two years. When the two leagues merged, Ke was assigned to the Macoto Gida. He still batted .283/.326/.366 in 2003, but his defense was influenced by a shoulder injury in this year. His CS% was a terrible 15% in two years with the Cobras, and he also allowed 68 steals. With talented catcher prospect Ke-Fan Chen joining the team, the Cobras released Ke, and his professional career ended.

Overall, Ke had hit .270/.308/.332 in eight seasons in the CPBL and TML.
