Biographical Information[edit]

Tsung-Hao Wang has pitched for the Taiwanese national team.

Wang had a 7.36 ERA in the 2008 World Junior Championship. In the 2013 World Port Tournament, he had a 1-0, 1.08 record. He was with Taiwan when they won Bronze in the 2013 East Asian Games. In the 2014 Haarlem Baseball Week, he pitched three games but allowed two hits (both doubles), a walk and a run while retiring no one. Relieving Jhih-Long Yang in the 8th of a 0-0 game against Japan, he allowed a double to leadoff man Sato and Yi-Chih Huang relieved and let the run score to hand Wang a loss.

He returned to the Netherlands for the 2015 World Port Tournament. He had a 3.72 ERA in two starts, both no-decisions. Wang was with Taiwan when they won the Silver Medal in the 2015 Asian Championship. He started Taiwan's opener against eventual champion South Korea and allowed four hits, a walk and a run in 1 2/3 IP before Yen-Ching Lu relieved. Taiwan wound up trying seven pitchers that day. In his other outing, he relieved Yi-Chih Huang in the 6th inning of a mercy rule win over Pakistan and worked one shutout inning (0 H, 0 BB, 1 K) before Shih-Ying Peng wrapped up the shutout.

Wang was absolutely dominant in his lone start in the 2017 Asian Championship as Taiwan would win the Silver. He threw a mercy rule 7-inning no-hitter against the Philippines; only a walk to Juan Alvaro Macasaet and an error by Wei-Chih Chen kept him from a perfect game. He struck out 11.
