"Oh is a humble person and he does not act like a star. He once told me that after he retired from professional baseball, he would devote himself to teaching children baseball and helping children who love baseball make their dreams come true," Tsai said.
"Oh is also a very disciplined person. For example, during the training period he would not allow himself to drink. If the training finishes tomorrow and he dines with friends today, he would not take a drink."

"When I was experiencing a low point in my life, he comforted me and told me not to be pressured too much. He even brought me nutritious food at the time," Lu said.

Lu said that Oh also achieved a high status in Taiwanese baseball circles and Taiwanese baseball players admire and respect him.
