In 921, a Hualian native named Lin Guixing formed the “Takasago Baseball Team” of Amis boys. Two years later the team changed its name to the “High-Ability” Baseball Team when they all enrolled in the Hualian Harbor Agricultural Study Institute. This team was different than any other team hybrid; they were strong in competence. Lin and his Noko team achieved great fame when they traveled to Japan in 1925 and won five of six games against Japanese school teams there. However, the team was dismissed after four of the best players were transferred to one of the Japanese secondary school.
