Baseball wankers

Postby Holyjoe » Mon Jul 18, 2016 7:51 am

Quite literally... a former MVP as well, you wouldn't catch Lee Dong-guk or Kim Shin-wook doing this (hopefully).

Baseball player caught for lewd act
July 14 2016

After police announced on Tuesday that they caught him masturbating with his car window down while looking at a woman walk down the street, KT Wiz put the 2009 Korean baseball league MVP Kim Sang-hyun on a restricted list on Wednesday.

The 36-year-old third baseman was investigated by the police after engaging in the lewd behavior in his car on June 16 in Ilkan, North Jeolla. The woman, who is known to be a 20-year-old, reported Kim to the local police. Although Kim left the scene immediately, police ran the license number of his car and Kim later admitted to the charges. “As long as the victim feels sexually humiliated,” police said, “lewd conduct charges can apply.” Kim was booked without physical detention on July 4.


After the scandal went public, the Wiz decided on Wednesday to release him from the team and place him on the league disqualified list. “We decided to discipline him for damaging the dignity of pro baseball and the club,” said the Wiz in its official statement. “Kim agreed to take the punishment.”

A player who is on the disqualified list cannot return to his club for a year without approval by his team. Although the club still retains ownership over the player, he cannot participate in any team training nor can he receive salary for the duration of his punishment or sign with any other clubs in the league. Kim played for teams such as the Kia Tigers and the Nexen Heroes before joining the Wiz. His career culminated in 2009 when he led the Tigers to the Korean Series with 36 home runs. He won the KBO MVP award and Golden Glove Award for third baseman that year.

I've heard that LDG used to consort with slappers in Middlesboro, which is arguably worse behaviour; quite a contrast to his family man persona here...

But wait, there's more!

(LEAD) Match-fixing scandal latest blow to baseball

SEOUL, July 21 (Yonhap) -- From DUI to lewd conduct in public to match fixing, baseball, by far the nation's most popular sport, has taken a beating this year. [...]

On Thursday, NC Dinos' pitcher Lee Tae-yang was indicted on charges of engaging in match-fixing schemes. Another player, Moon Woo-ram, will be further investigated by military prosecution, as he's on active duty. He's under contract with the KBO's Nexen Heroes but is doing his mandatory military service with Sangmu in the Futures League, the KBO's minor league. [...]

Their misconduct is only the latest blow to the KBO. Hours before Lee's allegations were first reported Wednesday, police said Samsung Lions pitcher An Ji-man had been questioned over charges that he'd given money to a friend to start an illegal gambling website. This is the same player who had been under a separate police investigation over illegal overseas gambling allegations since last year. [...]

so it looks like the top 10 teams, plus the two service teams. now are these just like farm leagues? the MLB has teams under them, AAA, AA, A in that order, yet they are in different cities all across the country, with different names, colors, etc. are these 'futures' in the same city and their parent club?

There is also the Yeoncheon County team (the miracle) that is independent. They play games against the futures teams, but are not part of the league system. Don't expect anything like minor league baseball back in America, these are much closer to reserve teams in form and function, none of the local color that you might expect. :(

I miss the Goyang Wonders :(
