Gwangju's own Byung-hyun Kim, who signed with the Pittsburgh Pirates last week, arrived at spring training and gave a little interview to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Nothing special, except he does say again that he wants to be a starter.
Kim is the first Korean player in Pirates history. Last year Masumi Kuwata was the first Japanese player to wear a Pirates uniform. A former All-Star and two-time World Series Champion, Kim is best known for his submarine slider, for flipping off Boston fans in 2003, for giving up home run number 715 to Bonds, for blowing two saves by giving up three devastating home runs in the 2001 World Series, and for giving up a tie-breaking home run in Korea's final loss in the 2006 World Baseball Classic. I'm sure there are more events worth mentioning, but Jesus Tapdancing Christ, you try sifting through that Wikipedia page.
