DJ Klaing pitches in with the Baseball Federation

Local hip-hop star DJ Klaing has been appointed second Vice President of the Cambodian Baseball Federation, according to first Vice President Nheum Saroeun. “[DJ Klaing] and his associates always support our baseball players during competitive events, so we hope, as second vice president, he will bring other people to support Cambodian baseball,” said Nhem Sarouen. DJ Klaing noted that despite his only brief exposure to baseball during a visit to the United States, he was determined not to allow the sport to become inactive in the Kingdom. “I will help change the half of the old structure of the Baseball Federation that was bad, and we will open training courses to federation members to help them understand more clearly about managing and working in baseball to develop it and get more funding,” he said.
