Braves Collection: Jung Bong

2003 Topps
There’s this one guy at every Braves game who sits in the stands at Turner Field about half way up the foul line from first base wearing a Jung Bong jersey. I’m fairly certain that it isn’t Bong himself for several reasons:
  1. Bong is still playing professional baseball in his native South Korea.
  2. The guy is short and Bong was six foot three.
  3. The guy isn’t of Asian descent.
Why? Why a Bong jersey? Is it his last name?
