“I am really excited that we have signed Dai-Kang Yang!  To have a guy with sixteen years experience in the NPB is pretty special for the DockHounds and the American Association,” says Manager Jim Bennett. “His veteran presence will be a huge asset to the team.  We’ve just given our fans one more exciting reason to come out and cheer on the DockHounds!”

Yang began his career as a first-round draft choice in 2006 and quickly showed his impact on the field.  He is a two-time Nippon Professional Baseball Gold Glove Award winner in 2012 & 2013.  Yang was also a two-time Game MVP during the 2012 & 2014 Nippon Professional Baseball All-Star Series. His history of success reflects his competitiveness and energy he brings to every team he has been a part of.
