2015 CPBL

From BR Bullpen

The 2015 Chinese Professional Baseball League was the 26th CPBL season. The EDA Rhinos again had the league leaders in all three Triple Crown categories but did not make the 2015 Taiwan Series as well as a pitching Triple Crown winner in a near-repeat of 2014's personal success but team struggles (finishing under .500 this year). Offensive records were set around the league - EDA's Kuo-Hui Kao's 39 home runs broke Tilson Brito's 8-year-old mark of 33, EDA's Yi-Chuan Lin's 126 RBI topped his own six-year-old record of 119 and Lamigo's Chih-Sheng Lin became the league's first 30-30 player ever.
