The Sinon Bulls of the Chinese Professional Baseball League (CPBL) are no more.
Last month the E-United Group purchased the franchise from the Sinon Corporation for NT$130 million. The new club called EDA Rhinos (pronounced ‘ee-da’) will head south to the port city of Kaohsiung. The Bulls were located in Taichung City.
They will still schedule a portion of their games in Taichung, but their home stadium will now be Kaohsiung City’s Cheng Ching Lake Stadium.
The franchise has won 2 titles under the Bulls name in 2004 and 2005.
The Rhinos will be apart of the 4 team circuit joining the Brother Elephants, Lamigo Monkeys, and the Uni-President Lions.
