Where's BY? Saving Himself for Charity

Who is tougher to find this season?
1. Waldo
2. D. B. Cooper
3. B. Y. Kim (or Kim Byung-hyun as he is known in Korea)

But see you B.Y. in December says the Korean Times and The Korea Professional Baseball Player Association (KPBPA).
The paper said Tuesday Kim has agreed to play in "Future Ball 2004" event - a charity fundraiser with other Korean MLB players including: Park Chan-ho (Texas Rangers), Choi Hee-seop (Los Angeles Dodgers), Seo Jae-weong (New York Mets), Bong Jung-keun (Cincinnati Reds) as well as Japan-based players Lee Seung-yeop (Lotte Marines) and Ku Dae-sung (Orix Bluewave). And B. Y., of course, is on the list of players.

The paper says the KPBPA has confirmed the participation of this list through Na Jin-kyun, secretary general of the KPBPA. According to the KPBPA, Future Ball 2004 will be held Dec. 2-4 either in Pusan or on Cheju Island. The charity game will be played on Dec. 4 with a home run competition scheduled in the middle of the game.
If B. Y. participates in the home run competition, I hope we get to see a tape of that on NESN or BBTN, don't you?
