Lotte Giants catcher Kang Min-ho will fund the construction of a baseball stadium to be named after him, in cooperation with the city of Yangsan, South Gyeongsang Province. The 200-seat stadium in Yangsan is being built in order to nurture promising baseball talent, including local amateur players.
Kang will chip in about W200 million, out of an estimated cost of W1 billion. "I want to repay all the love I've received from baseball fans by helping to create a better environment for other baseball players," Kang said.
