KIA dispatches 5 players, including Kwak Do-gyu, to Australia’s ABL Canberra Cavaliers


KIA Tigers will send a team to the Canberra Cavalry of the Australian Professional Baseball League (ABL).

KIA plans to send a total of five players to the Canberra Cavaliers, including pitchers Do-gyu Kwak, Ki-hoon Kim, Hyun-soo Kim, Won-bin Hong, and infielder Min Park.

As Geelong Korea’s dispatch to the ABL fell through this year, the club looked for alternatives, and in September, general manager Shim Jae-hak met directly with Canberra Cavalry owner and agreed to send a team.

General Manager Shim Jae-hak said, “We decided on this dispatch to provide real-life opportunities to players who need real-world experience due to military service and players who lack first-team stage experience,” adding, “Our players will lead the way in improving their skills against high-quality foreign players.” “I look forward to it,” he said.토토사이트

KIA plans to explore various ways to develop players, such as continuously dispatching players to the ABL in the future.

Meanwhile, the team is scheduled to play from the ABL opening game on November 17, and will return after playing a total of 40 games until the season ends on January 21 next year.
