WATCH: Hyun-Jin Ryu sings on Korean pop stars track, stars in video

  • David Whitlock

Not only can Los Angeles Dodgers hurler Hyun-Jin Ryu toss unhittable pitches with pop.  He can also deliver pitch on pop hits.  The 26-year old South Korean star joined forces with fellow Korean pop artists Trouble Maker and G. NA to release a song to raise funds for charity (blind students in Hanbit Performing Arts Academy).  Watch him sing the chorus with his fellow country-persons, he looks a little less comfortable in the music studio than on the mound (courtesy YouTube.com / United Cube):

Ryu had a breakout rookie season for the National League Championship Series participant Dodgers, winning 14 games while finishing in the Top 10 for ERA, and Top 5 for Complete Games and Shutouts.  For his efforts, he finished 4th in the 2013 NL Rookie of the Year ballot against a strong field.  No word on where this latest project may place him in any sort of Grammy balloting.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
