Ex-Pirates infielder Jung Ho Kang suspended one year by KBO for past DUIs

Former Pittsburgh Pirates infielder Jung Ho Kang was suspended for one year by the Korea Baseball Organization on Monday for multiple drunken driving offenses.

Kang, 33, also was ordered to complete 300 hours of community service during Monday’s hearing, which he did not attend because he is in the United States. Attorney Kim Sun-woong represented Kang, telling the Yonhap News Agency that his client is “extremely sorry to have caused trouble and that he would keep giving back to the community.”

His suspension will begin once he signs with a KBO team. The Kiwoom Heroes, for whom he played during his last season in the league in 2014 when they were the Nexen Heroes, still own his rights. A team official told the Yonhap News Agency that it was “premature” to discuss Kang’s future, indicating that Kang had not yet contacted the club. Kiwoom would have to give Kang permission to sign with another team in the league.

Hasn't the community gotten tired of his gifts yet?
