Kim Tae-hyoung (Korean: 김태형; born September 12, 1967) is a South Korean professional baseball manager of the Doosan Bears[1] of Korea Baseball Organization.[2]

Kim played catcher for the fourth-place South Korean baseball team in the 1988 Summer Olympics. He played 12 seasons in the KBO, from 1990 to 2001, all for the Bears. After his retirement, he stayed on as a coach for the Bears for an additional 11 years. After three seasons coaching for the SK Wyverns, Kim was brought back to the Bears, this time as the team's manager, in 2015. Kim has led the Bears to the Korean Series each season as their manager, winning three championships (in 2015, 2016, and 2019).
