EDA Rhinos slugger Lin Yi-chuan set a new Taiwanese professional baseball record over the weekend, reaching the 1,000-hit mark in the fewest games and with the fewest appearances at the plate.
Lin hit a single in the sixth inning to become the fastest player to get 1,000 hits during his side’s encounter with the Chinatrust Brothers at his home park in Kaohsiung on Saturday night.
It took him 744 games and 3,168 at-bats to accomplish the feat, which broke the previous fastest marks of 837 games by Lin Chih-sheng of the Lamigo Monkeys and 3,469 at-bats by Peng Cheng-min of the Chinatrust Brothers. [FULL STORY]
