Lee Jung-hoo, wearing a burgundy jumper amidst a wave of glossy jumpers, says goodbye to the KBO.

Lee Jung-hoo (25, Kiwoom Heroes), who is about to enter Major League Baseball (MLB), visited the KBO League festival. He said goodbye in his own way.

Lee made an appearance at Game 5 of the Korean Series (KS) between the LG Twins and KT Wiz at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on April 13. Unlike last year, when he led his team Kiwoom to the KS against SSG Landers, this year he sat in the stands.

Lee was traveling with Ryu Hyun-jin and Kim Ha-seong, who are currently playing in Major League Baseball (MLB). Before the game, the two seniors and I went to the outside waiting area in Jamsil Stadium and chatted for a while with Kim Eung-yong, Kim Sung-geun, and Kim In-sung, the pitchers for KS’s Game 5, before heading to the field for the ceremony. Fans and reporters drove around. “It’s awkward in this situation,” Lee said, laughing at the attention he was getting from major league seniors.

Lee’s outfit caught the eye. He wore a baseball jumper from Kiwoom, the team he played for for the past seven seasons (2017-2023). When I asked him if this was his intended costume concept, he stretched his arms slightly to the side and said, “Of course, I’m Kiwoom.” The burgundy (Kiwoom’s team color) jumper worn by Lee Jung-hoo, a representative icon of the KBO League, stood out among the wave of glossy jumpers worn by LG fans at Jamsil Stadium.

Lee Jung-hoo, who leads the KBO with a career batting average of 0.340, will try to reach the MLB this winter through the posting system (closed competitive bidding). The MLB has already begun its free agency period, and U.S. sports media outlets have been speculating on Lee’s destination and price tag. CBS Sports predicted a deal totaling $90 million (11.94 billion won). MLB.com introduced its own free agent ratings, placing Lee in the same tier as Clayton Kershaw, a pitcher with 210 career wins. 아톰카지노 도메인

With LG leading the series 3-1, Game 5 in KS could be the final game of the season. Lee, who is leaving the KBO scene for the time being, waved goodbye to the Kiwoom fans in a burgundy jumper in what was bound to be a high-profile appearance.

“It’s hard to say right now,” Lee said of his increasingly high salary prospects. Ryu Hyun-jin, who spent some time with the ‘prospective big leaguer’, said, “He’s the best hitter in Korean baseball. He’s a player with skills that everyone knows well, so I think he will play well if he adapts to the new stage.”
