Star Snippets: Ha Seung-jin, Kim Dong-joo …..

The absence of 7-foot-3 Center Ha Seung-jin due to injury has made his team KCC Egis vulnerable in the crucial stage of the KBL season. Ha was injured in the recent All-star game. His nonexistence was greatly felt when they lost to league-leading Ulsan Mobis by a wide margin. With 11 games left in the regular season, the Egis try to maintain at least in the second place behind Ulsan Mobis to decently defend its title.


Third baseman Kim Dong-joo of the Doosan Bears remains to be the highest paid player for the second straight year in the Korea Baseball Organization (KBL). Kim who earns 700 million won this season leads the cast of 109 others who will receive at least 100 million won this 2010 season. Closely following him as the highest paid are Son Min-han of the Lotte Giants and Park Jin-man of the Samsung Lions who take home at least 600 million won each.


Koo Dae-sung of the Hanwa Eagles has rejoined his team in practice while recovering injury in his left knee. His injury has caused him to just 38 appearances in the 2008 season. The 40-year old journeyman who has played in Japan’s NPB and United States’ MLB vows to help his team improve from last season’s disappointing campaign.
