For many professional players whose MLB career has been stagnant or flat out, look towards the other side of the Pacific and consider playing in Asian leagues like South Korea and Japan It is not a bad option: There is a high standard of living in those countries, the level of play is good and the fans They are even more passionate than the ones you can find in the Major Leagues.
One of the many former MLB’s who had to go to Asian lands to try their luck is pitcher Mike Montgomery, who is remembered for obtaining the save for the Chicago Cubs, in Game 7 of the 2016 World Series, now playing for the Samsung Lions from KBO South Korea.
However, his days may be numbered in the South Korean circuit, since a video of him has gone viral where during a meeting of his team, he has to be restricted by his teammates towards his dugout due to a tremendous anger he had against one of the umpires, since he was going to confront him. However, Montgomery visibly lost his head and threw the chalk bag at the officer.
After the tantrum, Montgomery was expelled from the game and most likely will be punished by the league severely for assaulting the umpire, which is practically inexcusable in either the United States or South Korea.
