Pan Chun-jung (simplified Chinese: 潘俊荣; traditional Chinese: 潘俊榮; pinyin: Pān Jùnróng, born January 2, 1983 in Taiwan) is a Taiwanese baseball player who currently plays for Uni-President Lions of Chinese Professional Baseball League. He currently plays as short reliever for the Lions.

Early life[edit]

A native to Kaohsiung County (now part of Kaohsiung City), Pan began formal baseball training at the junior level as most of Taiwan's baseball players had. His father is an enthusiastic baseball fan, and has supported him all the way.[1] He played for local baseball teams in his hometown throughout his compulsory education, and only left for Taipei to play for Taipei Physical Education College (Chinese: 台北體育學院), the alma mater of Yankees starting pitcher Wang Chien-Ming, after completing high school. He passed the alternative service examination and entered the 2005 alternative service draft.

Professional career[edit]

He was drafted by Uni-President Lions in the first round, and was guaranteed a contract before fulfilling his one year obligation for alternative service. He made his debut on April 15, 2007, and immediately became active in the bullpen. His first win came when he took the mound against Macoto Cobras at the bottom of the sixth inning on May 15, 2007, when the Lions were trailing by two runs; he pitched for 3.1 innings, gave up one hit and one run while struck out five and walked one. His teammates were able to turn the tide of the game, scored seven runs in the three and one third innings he pitched and made him the winning pitcher.[2]
