Hails from: South Korea
Occupation: Professional baseball pitcher
Why He’s a Babe: Because Park instigated one of the most memorable and unusual fights in MLB history back in ’99 as a Dodger when he tae kwon “doh”ed Rockies first baseman Tim Belcher for tagging him hard on a bunt. And because, after an illustrious start to his career, Park–the first Korean-born MLB pitcher in history–has battled injuries and getting sent down to the minors on numerous occasions, and is still fighting for a spot on the Dodger roster this season. Plus, not getting to sign autographs really makes Chan “Hulk” Park angry…and how many big leaguers can you say that about?
