But that's only half the story.
Who'd he get that historic home run off of? Why, none other than Byung-Hyun Kim. You may remember him as the pitcher who failed to win the crucial 3rd Korea vs Japan game in the WBC, when Japan only made it to the semifinals because the US lost, while Korea was unbeaten. Until he pitched. Or those games he pitched for the Diamondbacks in 2001 against the Yankees...or, as I will forever call him, "That Korean guy who lost the game for us that time." He used to be on the Red Sox. In 2003, when the rest of the team was "Cowboying Up," he imploded, flipped off the crowd and basically failed at life. He's the one Korean guy in baseball I don't like.
Way to go, Kim. You've done it again.
