Court Upholds Kang’s Sentence

Pirates on OV Sports Network

A South Korean court upheld a suspended prison sentence for Pirates’ infielder Jung Ho Kang over a drunken driving conviction, a ruling that may complicate his plans to rejoin the Pirates this season.  The court said the suspended prison term was “rational” because there wasn’t much room for leniency.  Kang was previously fined on drunk driving related charges in 2009 and 2011.
