I stumbled across the condensed game highlights that MLB posts on YouTube. I thought those of you that missed the game might enjoy seeing the highlights.

From Indianapolis' playoff game Wednesday night. I've never seen a player make a catch quite like this one before.

This is awesome, although I wish Jung-Ho Kang knew what was going on (either he didn't know how many outs there were, or he thought Neil Walker had already tagged second). In any case, this is the first-ever 4-5-4 triple play. Credit to Walker, and to the Cardinals' baserunners.

This is from early 2013. As you can see, he's sitting in the low 90s.

When Jung-Ho Kang makes his major league debut, he'll be the fourth player from his high school, Gwangju Jeil, to do so. That's notable, given the small number of Korean players who have appeared in the majors. The others from Kang's high school are Hee-Seop Choi, Jae Seo and former Pirates spring training attendee Byung-Hyun Kim.
