Three ‘WBC drinking’ fighters given community service, fines

Kim Kwang-hyun, Lee Yong-chan, and Chung Chul-won were fined and sentenced to community service for drinking alcohol in Japan during the World Baseball Classic.

The KBO held a punishment committee today (March 7) and handed down 80 hours of community service and a fine of 5 million won to Kim Kwang-hyun, who visited an entertainment bar twice during the WBC tournament in March, and 40 hours of community service and a fine of 3 million won to Lee Yong-chan and Jung Chul-won, who visited the bar once.

The KBO determined the facts through an investigation into the incident report, an in-person investigation, and an investigation into the manager of the bar in question, and determined that the three players’ drinking controversy damaged the dignity of the national team, according to Article 151 of the KBO’s rules.

The three players were removed from their respective teams’ first-team rosters last week, but avoided suspensions, allowing SSG Kim Kwang-hyun to return to the first team as early as the 11th, and NC Lee Yong-chan and Doosan’s Jung Chul-won to return on the 12th.

The three players, who appeared before the tribunal with stern expressions on their faces, bowed their heads once again after their 50-minute testimony and stated that they would humbly accept the punishment.

The KBO investigated the entire national team and found that none of the players had entered the bar except for the three.

They apologized for the lack of management of the national team and said they would try to prevent a recurrence by refining the national team rules in the future.
