  • June 19, 2005:  On June 19, 2005, then Doosan Bears pitcher Park Myung-hwan (currently with NC) hid a cabbage leaf under his hit to help keep him cool. It fell out twice while pitching that day.  KBO later deemed the cabbage leaf a 'foreign substance'.  Donga   Donga II   BBC  (it was because of this incident, that Snapple Tea was able to come up with this fact under their lid)

    From Donga:  "After a two-hour heated debate, the 11 attending members including Chairman Heo Gu-yeon decided to regard the frozen cabbage that Doosan pitcher Park Myung-hwan wore inside his hat during the match against Hanhwa a foreign substance, forbidding it from now on.

    The committee decided to ban the cabbage as ruled, saying that in the case of Park Myung-hwan, it is hard to say that there was any violation but that the cabbage might affect the game since its falling on the ground might disturb batters, or its moisture might wet a player’s hands."
