How a lifelong baseball player found his way to the court, not the field.

The former LG Twins one-club man is a “baseball legend” who holds the KBO’s all-time record for most hits with 2504, and the all-time record for most games played with 2237. 

Both records are likely to be broken in the 2024 season, but Park was one of the KBO’s most prolific shifters, playing well into his 40s and taking care of himself. After retiring, he continued to play baseball for the rest of his life, commentating on baseball and playing in the 토토사이트 Korea Baseball Organization.

He was spotted with his daughter on a volleyball court, not a baseball field. As it turns out, there was a reason.

On the 6th, the Dodram 2023-2024 V-League men’s game between KEPCO and OK Financial Group was held at Suwon Gymnasium in Gyeonggi Province. However, there was a familiar face in the stands. It was KBSN baseball commentator Park Yong-taek. He came to the volleyball court with his daughter to watch the game. 

His daughter, Solbi Yang, showed her love for volleyball during the broadcast, playing in the volleyball club at Jeju International School. Her favorite player is KEPCO’s Im Seong-jin.

Im joined the KEPCO as the second pick in the first round of the 2020-2021 rookie draft after graduating from Jecheon Industrial High School and as a junior at Sungkyunkwan University, and from the time he joined, he was recognized for his resemblance to actor Kim Soo-hyun. But he’s not only good looking, he’s also good. An outside hitter who can play both offense and defense, he is now known as the “Prince of Suwon” for KEPCO. In the last two rounds, he won the MVP award for the first time in his career.

After the match, Park Yong-taek surprised his daughter. He went down to the court and greeted Lim Sung-jin, who he had gotten to know through his broadcasting career, and asked him to sign autographs and take pictures with him. His daughter, Solbi, shyly took a picture with her smartphone camera. Park Yong-taek then showed his dadly side by taking a commemorative photo of the two of them himself.

Sitting in the stands with her dad during her vacation and seeing her favorite player in front of her, Solbi’s face was full of smiles, and Park Yong-taek ended his date with his daughter with a big smile on his face.

The “baseball legend” who has been playing baseball all his life found a volleyball court for his daughter and gave her an unforgettable memory.
