Chin-lung Hu (Chinese: 胡金龍; pinyin: Hú Jīnlóng; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Hô͘ Kim-liông; born February 2, 1984) is a Taiwanese professional baseball player, currently with the Fubon Guardians of the Chinese Professional Baseball League. He is the fifth player — and first infielder — from Taiwan to play Major League Baseball. His last name (along with that of fellow countryman Fu-Te Ni, formerly of the Detroit Tigers) is the shortest in MLB history. Hu recorded 34 hits in his MLB career, more than any other Taiwanese-born player.
