Player Profile: Cha Seung Baek

I have one card of Cha Seung Baek, from 2009 Upper Deck.

Playing career: Cha Seung Baek pitched four seasons from 2004 to 2008 for the Mariners and Padres, going 16-18 with a 4.83 ERA.

Where he is now: Pitching for the Orix Buffaloes in Japan.

My memories: I remember him pitching against the Yankees with Seattle, and being surprised his name was pronounced BECK – I had thought it was BAKE.

Google Autocomplete results: He is seventh when you type Cha Se, between Chia Seeds, referring to a plant, and Cha Seo Won, an actress. There do not appear to be any other prominent Cha Seung Baeks.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Carlos Baerga.
