Tijuana, 1998

Han Young striker Miguel Angel Solorzano's right arm was injured in an industrial accident in a fall at the plant. The fractures weren't set properly, and he was forced to return to work ten days later. He still can't close his fist completely. One of the main reasons Han Young workers organized an independent union and went on strike was to improve safety conditions at the factory.
