Does anyone know of an online resource that might have rosters for the CPBL and the old Taiwan Major League during the 1990s? I am trying to assemble checklists for some of the baseball card sets from Taiwain, but the player names are almost always in Chinese. If I had rosters to work with, I could probably get what I need with Google Translate to be able to work out the names.
And just out of curiosity, why is it that every other countrys' baseball culture seems to put more importance on players uniform numbers than the MLB? It seems EVERY piece of merchandise I see from other countries ties the player to his uniform number. Jersey's aside, you'd be hard pressed to find any American baseball merchandise that makes reference to uniform numbers, least of all baseball cards.
