Does Rockies reliever Seunghwan Oh’s jersey number contain hidden profanity?
June 11, 2019

When the Rockies acquired reliever Seunghwan Oh from the Blue Jays last week, he chose the No. 18 for his jersey, because the two numbers he’d worn previously in his career, No. 26 and No. 22, were already Kevin Kiermaier Jersey taken.Hardly a newsworthy event, right? Unle s, of course, you believe the conspiracy theory thatOh chose the number for another reason.As Sung Min Kim of The Athletic points out, the number 18′s pronunication in Korean sounds like an American obscenity. According to Yahoo Sports, the Carlos Gomez Jersey pronunciation “sounds pretty similar” tothe F— word.So, it occurred to me that Seung-Hwan Oh is wearing 18 now, which results in a pretty hilarious back of the jersey only for those who understand Korean curse words. pic.twitter.com/GAXMU3nJdp Sung Min Kim (@sung_minkim) July 29, 2018Surely, the 36-year-old Oh, a longtime star in theKorean Baseball Organization before making his MLB debut in 2016,is well past such youthful pranks. And if he did choose the number intentionally? Who cares?There are far more important i sues to worry about in baseball and the world at large.By the way, Oh worked a scorele s inning in his Colorado debut Saturday night. He Wade Boggs Jersey has a 2.63 ERA with 55 Ks in 48 innings this season.
