Biographical Information[edit]

Wing-Tung Mok has played for the Hong Kong national team.

He was the second-youngest player on Hong Kong in the 2014 Asian Games, with only Ho-Fung Wong younger. Listed as a backup outfielder, he got one at-bat as a pinch-hitter and was retired. [1] In 2017, he joined Ka-Ho Sam Leung on a semipro team in the US. [2] He started against Pakistan in the 2017 Asian Championship; Chi-Kam Kenneth Chiu would get the win in relief. He had a 11.12 ERA for the event, slightly better than the team ERA, and his 5 2/3 IP were second on the team to Chiu. [3] He had a 15.75 ERA in the 2018 East Asian Baseball Cup, losing to the Philippines. [4]

In the 2018 World University Championship, he lost to Japan (8 BB, 2 H, 11 R, 6 ER in 2 IP) and lost the 7th/8th place game to Australia. His 20.57 ERA was third-highest among qualifiers and he gave up the most runs (25). His 12 walks tied teammate Ching Connor Kwok for 2nd, 10 behind a third Hong Kong hurler, Chun-Pang Yuen. [5] At the 2018 Asian Games, the right-hander relieved Kun-Hin Yeung in the 6th against Gold Medal-bound South Korea with a 7-2 deficit. He walked Ha-seong Kim, who stole second, then walked Chi-hong An. He got former major leaguer Byung-ho Park to hit into a force at third. Gordon Chun-Ming Chau relieved and An would later score, giving Mok at a 27.00 ERA, not the team's highest (Kwok and Chau were both higher). [6]
