Chan Ho Park


A twenty year old pitcher named Chan Ho Park is in the Korean baseball league on
the L.A. Dodgers recruiting team. Every scout was scared to recruit him because
of him being foreign, but when they did he was well worth it. While Park is
working with the Dodgers Makoto Suzuki is impressing all of the Mariners in
Seattle. Both of these pitchers are supposed to sign and start the season in
the minors but Suzuki is so impressive that they are thinking about starting him
off in the majors. Park's controversial pitching style makes umpires and
baseball officials wonder if it is legal. What he does is an old Korean pitching
style that has a slight pause in his kickback of about two to five seconds and
that is supposed to distract the batter. During an exhibition Park did his
delayed pitch and the Expo bench “erupted in shouts for him to get out of the
box” and after the game the Expo coach Dallas Green said that “if he tries that
during the regular season his batters will walk out of the box.”
