It’s a big bad news that came right before the season opener.
On the morning of the 29th, suspicions arose that KIA general manager Jang Jeong-seok of professional baseball demanded back money from individual players during negotiations with former player Park Dong-won, who left the team as a free agent (FA).
A KIA official said, “It has been some time since I became aware of the contents. It was such a serious matter that it took time to figure out the facts. We reported the contents,” he explained.
Park Dong-won is a catcher that KIA brought in last year in a trade with Kiwoom. However, since obtaining FA qualification after the 2022 season was a variable, KIA steadily attempted to negotiate a multi-year contract with him, a league-level catcher, and sent a love call from the free agency market. However, it failed in the end, and Park Dong-won eventually moved the team to a 4-year, 6.5 billion won FA contract with LG.
It is understood that Jang’s ‘suspicion of asking for back money’ arose during this process. Director Jang immediately conveyed his intention to resign voluntarily to the club, but first, KIA referred him to the disciplinary committee. A KIA official explained the reason for the decision, saying, “There is a difference between the two sides (about asking for back money). 카지노사이트
The disciplinary committee for the head of the division has been in progress since 10:00 a.m. A KIA official said, “The disciplinary committee is expected to be organized in the morning. It will not be a problem that will take a long time.”
