      Baseball player Kim Hyun-soo expressed his ambitions for his career at a press event in Seoul on Tuesday. He came to Korea after signing a two-year contract worth US$7 million with the Balitmore Orioles last week.

      The former Doosan Bears outfielder is approaching his transition to Major League Baseball in the U.S. with great confidence.

      He is especially excited about flexing his skills against pitchers like David Price of the Boston Red Sox, who won the Cy Young Award in the American League in 2012. Price is known for his aggressive game and especially for not allowing many walks.

      Kim also said he hopes to end his career in MLB.

      "Returning to Korea would mean that I was no longer wanted in MLB," he explained. "So I hope to play in the U.S. until I will retire."
