CPBL Salaries Going Up

Discussion in the Around Asia forum
CPBL Salaries Going Up
Salaries in the Chinese Professional Baseball League are going up - albeit slowly.

The Chinatrust Whales center fielder Ji Jun-lin (using mainland China pinyin) recently re-upped with the team for US $6,500 per month. In 2005, Ji batted .286 with 3 home runs and 22 RBIs in 94 games. He stole 21 bases. Ji was also pretty good with the glove, posting a .984 fielding percentage with 11 assists.

Stars such as Xie Jia-xian will make US $9,000 per month after coming off a .284, 23 home run season. Meanwhile, Chen Chin-feng will play with the La New Bears and make $200,000 a year.

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
