Jung Kuen Bong, a former pitcher for the Atlanta Braves who was traded this season to the Cincinnati Reds, scattered five hits and struck out eight batters, pitching the Louisville Bats to a 9-0 victory Thursday night over the Indianapolis Indians in an International League game at Victory Field.

The game was halted for 15 minutes after the third inning when Indians first baseman Jeff Liefer accidentally got locked inside the team's clubhouse restroom.

LMAO! What a great story. Bernstein and Mully just had Liefer on to talk about it. To get out they had to pass him tools so that he could unhinge the door from the inside! To explain it to the fans, the stadium announcer said the game was being held up because a player was being detained in the clubhouse. Some of the fans started calling up radio stations and saying that one of the Indians players was being arrested. The other players were throwing toilet paper onto the field because of it. LOL, what a great story.

Just to add to the washed-up-has-been-who-never-was report, The Indy Indians also have Mark Johnson as their starting catcher! I went to the home opener for the Indians against the Mets' AAA team from Norfolk and was amazed to see the one and only James Baldwin on the Norfolk team!

"I put a whole new meaning to 'five-tool' player!"

:jerry
"I regret not getting Jeff more time using his screwdriver, wrench, and persuader... er, I mean hammer... during key game situations."

:versatile
"Hey, nobody out versatiles me! I'm going straight to Sears to pick up a cordless drill and shop vac."

Nice report. I got goosebumps hearing JB's name. I wish him good luck getting back to the bigs. He was a lot of fun to watch.

They should hand out Jung Keun "Bongs" to the first 5,000 folks. LOL, that's the best name I've ever heard in baseball. :smile:

Actually, it's not clevelands organization, its the Brewers.
