It’s been four years since Jung Ho Kang last suited up for the Pittsburgh Pirates, but it doesn’t appear the former infielder has lost all of his skills just yet.
Kang was on hand for the Pirates game against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park on Monday night and caught a foul ball in the stands during the game.
