The Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) has ordered that baseball players may not use frozen cabbage leaves in their caps as a means to keep cool during games.
Park Myung-hwan of the Doosan Bears had his cap fall off his head during a game last week, revealing his secret for staying cool. During an emergency meeting the KBO ordered that cabbage leaves cannot be considered part of the baseball uniform.
Park said he was disappointed by the ruling but would not appeal.
He got the idea for using cabbage leaves to keep cool from his wife.
