Marlins lead with their Chen

weiToday’s home opener for the Miami Marlins vs the Detroit Tigers will have in attendance a trio of international players and one Tiger coach [Omar Vizquel] who can easily be considered the greatest MLB players their countries ever produced.

  • The Great Ichiro Suzuki [OF] – Japan
  • Wei-Yin Chen [P] – Taiwan [Free China]
  • Omar Vizquel – Venezuela [Free]
  • Miguel Cabrera [1B] – Venezuela [Chavista]

The Marlins opening day starter Wei-Yin Chen is not just the best MLB player Taiwan has produced, he is likely their most accomplished male athlete ever. The qualifier is due to the fact that Yani Tseng is the Gaylord Perry of Women’s golf.

Below is a list of all the Asian players currently in MLB.
