Kia Tigers President Shim Jae-hak has issued a public apology. He apologized for the inappropriate behavior of some players during a team event.

Kia Tigers President Shim Jae-hak bowed his head by posting an apology on the club’s official website on the 30th. In the apology, Shim said, “I would like to bow my head and apologize for the wrongful behavior of some players at the Tiger Family Hanmadang event held on the 28th.

Shim continued, “I did not behave appropriately as a professional baseball player. The KIA Tigers feel a heavy sense of responsibility. We will do our best to educate our players on ethics.

The remarks were made at the ‘2023 Tiger Family Day’ event held at Gwangju-KIA Champions Field on April 28.

At the end of the event, the players lined up to see off the fans with palms touching. During the process, several players made inappropriate comments while high-fiving fans.

“Even if it was a joke, it was inappropriate behavior, and the club will soon discipline itself,” a KIA official told Sports Seoul on the 30th, adding, “The apology letter was not from the club’s name, but from the head coach, Shim Jae-hak, who said he wanted to apologize directly, saying it was a failure to manage his players.” 먹튀검증

It is said that Shim personally greeted more than 1,000 fans who participated in the event and hoped for a successful conclusion to the event, but was upset when something untoward happened. In response, he personally posted an apology under his own name to appease his angry fans.
