Its a new era of the Tigersbaseball. Gwangjus local baseball club the Kia Tigers officially introduced Matt Williams as the organizations 9th manager in its franchise history during a press conference on Tuesday afternoon at KIA Motors Gwangju Factory auditorium.

> The month-long search for a manager is finally complete and the result may be a surprise to many fans. The first-ever foreign-born manager in the club, Williams had a quick message to the passionate fan base of the Tigers coming off a down season.

> Williams is not only the Tigers first-ever foreign manager, but only the third foreign manager ever to join the KBO. Jerry Royster was appointed as the Giants manager from 2007 to 2010. Throughout four seasons with the Giants, he successfully led the club to the postseason. As the two foreign managers have been pretty successful in the KBO, expectations will be high for Williams next year.

> The Tigers said Williams is the right man to carry out the club's vision of establishing data-driven player development and instilling a sense of professionalism in the clubhouse.

> The Tigers finished in seventh place among 10 KBO clubs this year with a record of 62-80-2 (wins-losses-ties), 11 games out of the fifth and the final playoff spot.
