Hackman Back With Lions

Luther Hackman has returned for a third stint with the Lions. First signed in 2008, he has gone 8-2 with an ERA of around three in the last two regular seasons. It has been in the post season however, where the American has really excelled. His record of 5-1 coupled with an ERA of 2.30 (in 43 1/3 innings) was enough to earn MVP honors in both the 2008 and 2009 Taiwan Series.

Before coming to the CPBL Hackman spent parts of five seasons as a relief pitcher in MLB, playing in Colorado, St. Louis, and San Diego. His best stretch in the bigs was between 2001 and 2003 where he chalked up 193 and a third innings over 143 contests.
