Hyun-Jin Ryu is Popular

When you're popular enough, you might get something named after you…a landmark, a statue, perhaps even a road. 

And while most of us would settle for sharing our moniker with anything, Los Angeles Dodgers rookie Hyun-Jin Ryu is about to receive the ultimate honor from his hometown of Incheon, South Korea.

Thursday, the city government announced that three baseball stadiums will be named after the pitcher.

Yes.  Three.  Because, you know…one wouldn't be enough.

To put that into perspective, you and I can't get a sandwich named after us at our favorite deli and Ryu is getting three baseball stadiums named after him.  Your move Yasiel Puig.
