He then added that Coach Kim was judged to be unable to properly perform his duties as head coach and was therefore suspended from his duties.

An official from the KIA club said, “This has nothing to do with the recent case of a high-ranking executive of an independent baseball team receiving a large amount of money under the pretense of joining a professional baseball team,” and added, “I understand that Coach Kim has been investigated for another case of receiving money.”

In fact, the investigation into the bribery of high-ranking executives of the Independent Baseball Team is currently being conducted by the police, and it has been revealed that Manager Kim has been investigated by the prosecution, so there is no connection.

Before the official announcement of Manager Kim’s suspension, the KIA club announced that it would report this to the KBO Clean Baseball Center and submit a report.

The KIA club plans to decide on Coach Kim’s future after observing the investigation. The first team spring camp held in Canberra, Australia will be held under Jin Gap-yong as head coach.

Due to Coach Kim’s sudden suspension, the KIA team prepared for the season in a turbulent atmosphere for the second consecutive year.

Last year, general manager Jang Jeong-seok was fired just three days before the opening of the regular season.

When it was revealed that former general manager Jang had demanded kickbacks from catcher Park Dong-won (LG Twins) during the free agent (FA) contract negotiation process after signing the contract, KIA held a disciplinary committee and dismissed former general manager Jang on the grounds of damage to dignity and punished the baseball community and fans.
