Description:
The Brother Elephants (兄弟象) are a professional baseball team in Taiwan. It was originally established as an amateur team in 1984 by the Brother Hotel located in Taipei City, and later joined the Chinese Professional Baseball League (CPBL) in 1989. Brother Hotel's chairman Hung Teng-sheng (洪騰勝) also acted as CPBL's secretary-general from 1989 until now, and is respected as "father of the CPBL".

The Brother Elephants team has worn yellow uniforms throughout its history, and makes New Taipei its home city, with a training field in Longtan Township, Taoyuan County.

History

On March 17, 1990 the Brother Elephants played the first historical CPBL game against the Uni-President Lions in the now demolished Taipei Municipal Baseball Stadium with a full house of 14,350 in attendance. Interestingly, the two teams are also the only two remaining original teams of the CPBL.

With its long history from the amateur era plus a successful marketing strategy and management, the Brother Elephants has long been the most popular Taiwanese baseball team, also winning six, CPBL championships, more than any other team. Its current roster includes two local batting stars Chen Chih-yuan and Peng Cheng-min, both of whom participated in the 2004 Summer Olympics. Cola Yeh, a former Brother Elephant's player, later moved to New Zealand and started his own baseball club, the Cola Yeh Baseball team. He coached the New Zealand Little League Baseball team.
