Despite struggling through one of the worst seasons of his career, Lotte Giants’ catcher Kang Min-ho was selected on Wednesday as an All-Star reserve in the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO).
Kang was among 24 managerial picks for the mid-summer affair in the top South Korean baseball league. Players from his Giants will be joined by those from the Samsung Lions, the Doosan Bears and the SK Wyverns in the Eastern League. Representatives of the LG Twins, the Nexen Heroes, the NC Dinos, the Kia Tigers and the Hanwha Eagles will make up the Western League.
The All-Star Game will be played on July 18 in Gwangju, home of the Tigers located about 330 kilometers south of Seoul. The starting players were voted in by fans, managers and fellow players.
