Did you know that in his final Major League appearance on October 1, 2010 , Chan Ho Park - the first South Korean Major League baseball player - pitched three scoreless innings, earned his 124th career win, and passed Hideo Nomo 's record for most games won by an Asian-born pitcher?

On June 21, 2008 , Park took the mound against the Cleveland Indians at the Dodger Stadium and joined Kevin Brown , Al Leiter , Javier Vazquez , and Jamie Moyer as the only pitchers to start a game against all thirty Major League teams. More notable dates in Chan Ho Park's Major League career:
Chan Ho Park vs Tim Belcher

Chan Ho Park was pitching on April 6, 1996 , relieved Ramon Martinez in the second inning, pitched four scoreless innings, recorded the win, and became the first South Korean to win a Major League game.

Chan Ho Park was pitching on April 23, 1999 , when Fernando Tatis hit two grand slams during the same inning , a spectacularly rare feat and Park gave up both slams.

Chan Ho Park was pitching on June 5, 1999 , and was tagged out on a bunt attempt by opposing pitcher Tim Belcher . Park believed the tag was unnecessarily hard, an MMA fight started (photo of the kickboxing portion appears above), and Park ended up being ejected, later fined $3,000, and suspended seven games.

Chan Ho Park was pitching on August 24, 2000 , and in the bottom of the third inning, Park hit the first pitch by Javier Vazquez into the center field stands, the first home run ever hit by a South Korean born ballplayer.

Chan Ho Park was pitching on October 5, 2001 , when Barry Bonds hit home run number seventy-one (and seventy-two) breaking the record for most home runs in a season set by Mark McGwire , who hit 70 in 1998.

Chan Ho Park was pitching on June 4, 2005 , earned the win, and became the first South Korean born pitcher to win 100 big league games.

Chan Ho Park was essentially a power pitcher, his biggest weapon being a four-seam fastball in 95-98 mph range. Mixed with a two-seam fastball, a slider, a curveball, and a changeup, he had five consecutive seasons of 10+ wins with the Dodgers. Fox play by play announcer Matt Vasgersian once said about Park's two-seam fastball, "You can only see a two-seamer like that in PlayStation 2."
