Video Highlights For Jung-Ho Kang

Video Highlights For Jung-Ho Kang
John Dreker

It was announced today that the Pittsburgh Pirates won the exclusive negotiating rights for Korean shortstop Jung-Ho Kang. They now have 30 days to work out a contract or he will have to wait another year before he can be posted again. Below are some videos of Kang to get yourself acquainted with the new(possibly) player.

Here is one video link of interest to Pirates fans because it also includes a pitcher they signed, Radhames Liz.

Here are highlights from KBO Highlights covering the 2013 season. This one is good because it has defensive highlights as well.

Here is more defense, with a strange beginning to the video.

Slow-motion hitting mechanics…or go to the next video if you just want to see homers.

If you have the time, watch all 40 of his home runs in one video.

John Dreker

John was born in Kearny, NJ, hometown of the 2B for the Pirates 1909 World Championship team, Dots Miller. In fact they have some of the same relatives in common, so it was only natural for him to become a lifelong Pirates fan. Before joining Pirates Prospects in July 2010, John had written numerous articles on the history of baseball while also releasing his own book and co-authoring another on the history of the game. He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site. John also provides in person game reports of the West Virginia Power and Altoona Curve.
