On the 30th, KIA released an apology on the team’s social media account, signed by team president Shim Jae-hak.
The team’s president, Shim Jae-hak, wrote, “Hello. 카지노
I’m Shim Jae-hak, president of the KIA Tigers baseball team.
I would like to bow down and apologize to all the fans who love and support the KIA Tigers for the misbehavior of some players at the Tiger Family Hanmadang event held on October 28.”
“We held a high-five event between the players and fans to thank them for their support this season, but during the event, some of the players used language that is not appropriate for a professional baseball player.
The KIA Tigers feel a heavy responsibility for this incident and accept our responsibility.
