Hee-Seop Choi of the KIA Tigers

I have mentioned before that I’m in Korea and have been for the past month. If you want to take a look at some of my recent photos from Korea, click here.

Today’s photo is of former Chicago Cubs, Florida Marlins, and Los Angeles Dodgers player Hee-Seop Choi. Choi is back in South Korea, playing for his hometown team, the Gwangju KIA Tigers. I’m living in Gwangju now so I have seen him play several times. Choi was the first Korean position player in Major League Baseball. He didn’t hit all-star status in MLB, though he was featured in the 2005 Home Run Derby as South Korea’s representative when they toyed with the international component to the event that year.

He led the KIA Tigers to the Korean Championship in 2009 after leaving MLB.
