One of Korea’s top baseball stars has revealed in an interview with ESPN that he would consider a move to Major League Baseball if the opportunity presents itself.

Sung-bum Na, an outfielder for the NC Dinos of the Korean Baseball Organization, has caught the eyes of many spectators around the globe this spring as the league has been widely televised in the absence of MLB action.

The lefty hitter, who missed the entire 2019 season due to an ACL injury, has established himself as one of the top offensive players in the league since his debut in 2012.

A six-time All-Star selection and a two-time Gold Glove Award winner, Na has compiled a .316 batting average, 145 home runs, and 90 stolen bases since he entered the league.

Na stated, “I’m always going to work as hard as I can on the field to fulfill my dreams. And watching MLB on TV made me have bigger dreams.”

He went on to describe himself as a five-tool player that could have an impact on all facets of the game if a team signs him. He will be eligible for posting for a move to the United States following the 2020 season.
