Fernando Rodney Takes Save Celebration to Korea
Mariners closer Fernando Rodney is off to Korea on a goodwill trip where he will visit U.S. soldiers on a military base and participate in a youth baseball camp while there. His schedule also includes lunch at the Dominican Republic Embassy, a visit to a school for the blind and a meet-and-greet with the 2014 Little League champions from South Korea (whom he has a fun connection with).
MLB.com writer Jesse Sanchez caught up with Fernando from the Miami Airport before taking off on his trip. Upon returning from Korea, Rodney will head straight to Seattle to participate in FanFest Jan. 24-25.
Yesterday was also a big day for Fernando as his bobblehead night on May 9 vs. the A’s was announced.
