On the field, they’re rivals. But off the field, it would appear, nothing could be farther from the truth.
Tuesday, Hyun-jin Ryu took a break from Spring Training with the Los Angeles Dodgers and invited four of his fellow Korean big leaguers to his home for some home cooking.
Joining the pitcher at his house in Glendale, Arizona, were Shin-soo Choo of the Texas Rangers, Dae-ho Lee of the Seattle Mariners, Ji-man Choi of the Los Angeles Angels and Kwang-min Kwon of the Chicago Cubs.
Missing in action was Jung-ho Kang…but something tells me the only reason the Pittsburgh Pirates infielder wasn’t getting his fill of samgyeopsal (that’s grilled pork belly to me and you) is because his team trains in Florida and not Arizona.
