3 Korean pitcher to take mound on Aug.12

Posted August. 11, 2000 20:11,   


Korea`s celebrated baseball troika, now playing in the U.S. and Japanese big leagues, will all take to the mound on the 12th, making it a `Super Saturday`.

Park Chan-Ho will start against the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field at 8:40 (local time) in the morning. It will be his 3rd attempt at getting win number 12. `Submarine reliever` Kim Byung-Hyun (21), who went down to the minor leagues with a wrist injury, registered back with the Major League following his recovery and will be readying himself in the bullpen against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

In Japan, Park`s rival in his college days, Cho Sung-Min (27), will be starting in his first game in 2 years against the Hiroshima Carps. Park is expected to have a tough game considering Atlanta is the winningest team in the majors right now (69 wins, 45 losses).
