    • In December of 2012, the Lotte Giants officially signed pitcher Scott Richmond.  In March 2013, he was replaced by another pitcher.  According to Richmond, he has not been paid nor have the Lotte Giants honored his contract.  In light of the recent revelations regarding the Lotte Giants front office, MyKBO received the following statement from Scott Richmond:   Signed Statement

      I signed with the Lotte Giants in Dec 13, 2012 for the 2013 season. I arrived in Saipan for Spring Training fully healthy and excited for the new opportunity of playing overseas! I had worked really hard in the off season and hoped to play in Korea for many years!

      My first time joining the Lotte Giants in my uniform with all the press around, I slipped fielding a practice bunt play and injured my knee. I was flown to Seoul to see a doctor to verify my injury, and the doctor found that I tore the medial meniscus in my left knee. The team then flew me to Busan to have a second doctor examine my knee, and this doctor confirmed that the meniscus was torn. Then the Lotte Giants told me to fly back to the US to have the surgery.

      After arriving in the US, the team basically ignored me. I arranged to have the surgery as soon as possible so that I could return back to Korea and be ready to play before the 2013 season started. This injury is very common and typically has a 4 to 6 week recovery. After the surgery, I immediately started rehab the next day, as I am a man of my word and I really wanted to get back to Korea and play. But I heard back nothing from the team. Then without telling me, on March 20, 2013, they hired a new pitcher to replace me.

      I was extremely disappointed and upset that I was treated so poorly, and now my name was ruined in Korea and even though I was healthy and ready to play again they didn’t want me back and told the media that my baseball career was over. Since that time Lee Moon-han (the president of athlete operations) and the Lotte Giants have not paid me anything and have not honored my contract.
