Former big leaguer Kang Jeong-ho caught a foul ball while in the stands to watch junior Kim Ha-sung play.
During the 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) World Series game between the San Diego Padres and the Pittsburgh Pirates at Petco Park in San Diego, California, U.S., on 25 June, Kang caught a ball that flew into the stands with his bare hands.
The catch brought cheers from the baseball fans around him.
A local broadcaster said, “Look at this fan. Doesn’t he look like a baseball player? That’s Jung-ho Kang, who played for Pittsburgh,” and laughed.카지노
Local media outlet The Athletic also posted on social media, “Kang Jeong-ho, who played in Pittsburgh, caught a foul ball in the stands with one hand.”
Kang Jeong-ho was a star player for the Nexen Heroes and MLB Pittsburgh from 2015 to 2019, but his career was marred by a drunk driving scandal and he retired in disgrace.
On this day, Kang Jeong-ho reportedly visited the stadium to support his junior Kim Ha-seong, whom he played with during his time with Nexen.
