This is LG Twins rookie Shim Kyu-bin (23).

He was selected with the 108th pick in the final 11 rounds of the 2024 First-Year Player Draft. A total of 110 players were drafted by the 10 teams in baseball, and he was the third-to-last name called. This is LG Twins rookie Shim Kyu-bin (23).

A top-round pick doesn’t necessarily guarantee success, and it’s possible to pull off an upset in the lower rounds. It’s all about how well you adapt to the pros and how you capitalize on your opportunities.

Shim went 1-for-4 with a walk and a hit in his first at-bat against the SSG Second Team in the Futures League at SSG Futures Field in Ganghwa, South Korea, on April 28, starting in right field.

In his first at-bat after the first inning, he drew a seven-pitch walk. He led off the third inning with a single and was stranded on a grounder to second base. 안전놀이터 추천 In the fifth inning, he singled to right on a full count. He struck out the next two at-bats.

He was 1-for-4 on the day, but is now 6-for-15 in his last four games with a 4.0 batting average.

On the season, he is 18-for-47 (3-for-18) with five home runs, nine RBI, nine runs scored, and a .972 OPS in 18 games in the Futures League. He’s easily the top hitter in the Futures League. SSG’s Choi Joon-woo is 3-for-8, while KIA’s Kim Min-soo is 2-for-5.

Shim has shown great contact in his first year as a pro, with five stolen bases, and he’s also quick on his feet with six strikeouts and 13 walks. He’s a last-round draft pick, but he could turn things around in the pros. LG already has some great success stories. Moon Sung-joo.

Moon was selected by LG with the 97th pick of the last 10 rounds of the 2018 Secondary Draft. A graduate of Youngdong University, Moon served in the military and broke out in the LG outfield in 2022, earning a spot in the starting lineup. He earned a spot in a national-level outfield lineup that included Kim Hyun-soo, Park Hae-min, and Hong Chang-ki. Like Moon, Shim is similar to Moon Sung-joo in that he has good contact rather than long-hitting power.

Shim graduated from Sungkyunkwan University. In his senior year, he played in 15 games, batting .355 with one home run, 10 RBIs, and 13 stolen bases. 토토사이트 순위 At the time of his selection last year, LG’s scouting team said, “He has excellent contact ability and quick feet. He has good defensive range, good pitch recognition, and strong shoulders.”

Shim is still a developmental player and wears the number 108. He hopes to grow steadily with patience and become an official player and play for Jamsil Stadium.

Austin was the centerpiece of a 29-year breakthrough last year.

Austin Dean, 31, of the LG Twins, was the centerpiece of a 29-year breakthrough last year.

He anchored the offense, batting .301 with 23 home runs and 95 RBIs in 139 regular-season games and went 3-for-5 with a home run in Game 5 of the Korean Series. LG won its first pennant in 29 years, since 1994.

The club wanted to re-sign Austin, and rightfully so. His skills and personality are still there. Austin signed for a total of $1.3 million.

LG President Cha Myung-seok said at the time of the re-signing, “Austin is a player who has clearly demonstrated his role in helping LG win the 2023 season and is an essential part of our team. He is a great player not only in terms of skill but also character. With his experience and adaptation to the KBO League, 스포츠토토 we expect him to continue to perform well next year.”

Second year in the KBO League.

Austin has become more integrated into Korea. “You can just evaluate him as a Korean player,” LG manager Yeom Kyung-yup recently said of Austin, “He’s adapted quickly, both mentally and in his thinking.”

Part of Austin’s adjustment was the presence of Casey Kelly, who is now in his sixth year with LG. Now that she’s acclimated to Korea, she’s a good mentor for foreign players. “Kelly plays a big role,” said Yeom. When we have team meetings, staff meetings, meetings with me, it’s like talking to a Korean,” he smiled.

“I think she’s doing a good job of adjusting to Korea. If he doesn’t adapt well, he just wants to take advantage of it. Austin is a really good teammate.”

Austin’s play has continued this season. In 32 games, 온라인 슬롯 he has six home runs and a .333 batting average. The best part is that he hasn’t had any major ups or downs.

Dye is also confident in Austin’s performance. “Austin is a hitter who can hit the changeup. His batting average never drops too much. He can get curveballs and hit home runs, and he can get changeups and get hits. He’s been doing that naturally this year. He strikes out a lot with fastballs, but surprisingly, he doesn’t strike out a lot with changeups. For Korean hitters, he’s like Yang Ji,” he smiled.

‘Hwang Sung-bin of the Demon King’ couldn’t watch for long

‘Hwang Sung-bin of the Demon King’ couldn’t watch for long. Injury knocked him down once again. Injuries have become a regular visitor for Hwang Sung-bin of the Lotte Giants in the Korean Baseball Organization. And the biggest worry is who’s going to raise the tension in the dugout now.

Hwang Sung-bin was removed from the first team roster on May 29th. Hwang suffered a left hamstring strain while running the bases in the Sasik SSG game on April 24. He missed two consecutive days on the 25th and 26th, and after appearing as a substitute on the 27th against Changwon NC, he appeared as a designated hitter on the 28th and went 1-for-3 with one run scored.

Hwang Sung-bin, who continued to be bothered by his left leg in the 28th game, was eventually removed from the first team roster on the 29th. The hottest hitter in the Lotte batting order and one of the most tense atmosphere makers in the team is gone.

Hwang went 3-for-6 with three home runs and six RBIs in a doubleheader against Sasik KT on April 21. He revitalized a team that had fallen into an eight-game losing streak. 안전놀이터 He had five consecutive multi-hit games from the 18th against Jamsil LG Electronics to the 24th against SSG, when he was injured, and went 5-for-7 (12-for-21) with three home runs, eight RBIs, nine runs scored, and four stolen bases.

With his dynamic style of play, injury is always a risk.

The unfortunate thing about Hwang’s injury history is that when he was at his best, he was injured and never found his stride.

Last year, Hwang’s early pace was similar to this year. He was batting 4-for-8 (7-for-16) with two RBIs and four runs scored in six games until April 11, when he was diagnosed with a microfracture in his left index finger while sliding in a game against LG. After returning 11 days later on April 22, Hwang played in five games. However, on April 28 against Kiwoom, he was diagnosed with a second-degree tear of the anterior talofibular ligament in his left ankle. As a result, Hwang’s rise in April 2023 came to an end. He never regained the energy he had before his injury.

This year, injury once again interrupted his run. It seems that his own upswing has been halted. His departure is a big loss for Lotte, who are currently sitting at 8-20-1 with a 2.8-6 win-loss record. His absence will be felt not only on the field, but also in the dugout, where he is needed to lift the spirits of a sinking dugout.

Immediately, Hwang’s presence helped the offense rebound and the dugout atmosphere revitalize. This year, he’s even convinced veterans to join him for individual home run ceremonies, 바카라사이트 추천 which has helped boost dugout tension. He was an energizer on and off the field. In fact, the team was held scoreless against Changwon NC on April 26-27 when Hwang was removed from the lineup. Not coincidentally, his absence was felt.

With Lotte struggling to get out of the bottom of the standings, how can they rebound and revitalize their momentum?

Oh Jae-il got a taste of what it’s like to readjust to hitting

Samsung Lions’ Oh Jae-il got a taste of what it’s like to readjust to hitting in the Futures stage.

Oh Jae-il started at first base for the Samsung Lions in their home game against the Goyang Heroes in the Futures League at Gyeongsan Ballpark on March 30. He came to bat with the bases loaded in the bottom of the first inning, trailing 0-3. In the mound was Kim Yoon-ha, a rookie right-hander best known as the nephew of “Korean Express” Park Chan-ho.

On a two-ball, two-strike at-bat, Kim was tagged out trying to steal second base. On a full count, Oh fouled off a 143-kilometer fastball. He then saw a 142-kilometer fastball right down the middle, and he didn’t miss, hitting it over the right-field wall for a solo home run. Oh was all smiles as he was congratulated by his teammates in the dugout.

Oh is a veteran left-handed slugging first baseman with a career batting average of .841 with 205 home runs, 831 RBIs, 585 runs scored, 14 doubles and an OPS of .841 in 1,397 games (4,238 hits, 1163 at-bats). He signed a four-year, 5 billion won contract with Samsung in December 2020, 카지노사이트 and this is the final year of his contract with Samsung.

Despite a pivotal season ahead of his free agency,

Oh struggled in 11 games this season, going 1-for-6 (6-for-36) with one home run, three RBIs, two runs scored and a .619 OPS, and was eventually cut from the first team roster. In the Futures League, he hasn’t gotten out of his slump, going 8-for-25 with two doubles and a .252 OPS in 10 games. He has recently gone 25 consecutive at-bats without a hit.

Manager Park Jin-man recently said, “Oh Jae-il can only come up again when he is in top form. He has to create the environment for himself to be in the first team. Oh Jae-il is the centerpiece of our team anyway. His batting pace will help the team. That’s why we’re constantly checking his physical condition.”

“There must be a lot of things that are not working right now. I think he knows it because he’s been preparing since spring training, but it’s different when you’re practicing and when you’re playing. 메이저사이트 That’s why it’s frustrating because you know what you’re doing, but it’s not working. I think he knows what the situation is right now,” he added.

Oh Jae-il suffered from a severe hitting slump. He finally got a taste of what he wanted to do and regained his hitting touch.

Kim has been realizing his hitting potential in his second year.

Kim Bum-seok, 19, a big-league catching prospect for the LG Twins of the Korean Baseball Organization (KBO), has been realizing his hitting potential in his second year.

Commentators such as Lee Soon-cheol, Park Jae-hong, Park Yong-taek, and other legends have praised Kim’s hitting talent. Manager Yoon Kyung-yeop said that he plans to play Kim consistently in the future, and that he expects him to “win the Rookie of the Year.”

Kim Bum-seok made his presence felt in last weekend’s game against KIA, hitting long ball after long ball at crucial moments.

In the top of the fourth inning against KIA, trailing 2-3, Kim Bum-seok launched a come-from-behind two-run home run over the left field fence off KIA starter Hwang Dong-ha. The home run proved to be the game-winner in LG’s 6-3 victory.

Kim, who struck out in the first inning after swinging wildly at Hwang’s slider, was not fooled by a 1-2 slider in the fourth inning. “I swung at a bad pitch in the first inning, so I thought a changeup was coming, and I thought I could hit it well if I waited for it, so I waited for it. In the second pitch, I thought a fastball was coming, so I waited and swung at it confidently,” he said. At such a young age, Kim’s reading comprehension is also not exceptional.

With the bases loaded and the score 3-5, Kim Bum-seok drove a 150-kilometer fastball from KIA starter Crowe into the right-field seats for a walk-off three-run double.

On the 28th against KIA,

“The hitting point was obviously late, but he had a good swing and good pushing power, so it was a nice hit to the right field line,” said Park Jae-hong, a commentator who broadcast the game. Kim Bum-seok struck out in the second inning when Crowe threw him four consecutive sliders. 바카라사이트 In the fourth inning, he hit a slider followed by three consecutive curveballs for a single to center field, and in the fifth inning, when Crowe threw him a fastball, he crushed it for a long hit.

Kim Bum-seok made his first start of the season in the first game of a doubleheader against SSG on April 21. With the bases loaded in the seventh inning and LG trailing 6-8, Kim crushed a low slider from SSG veteran Noh Kyung-eun over the right-field fence for the game-winning home run.

Commentator Lee Soon-cheol said of Kim, “He has a very smooth swing. He’s a little bit like Lee Dae-ho, just with a height difference,” Lee said, adding, ‘If he can overcome his body, he doesn’t have to worry about the weight issue.’

In his first at-bat of the second game of the SSG doubleheader, Kim Bum-seok took a pitch from left-hander Oh Won-seok and smashed it to center field. Commentator Lee Soon-cheol said, “It’s a great technique. His timing was a little late, but he placed one hand in advance and centered the bat at the right time. He has an instantaneous sense of hitting,” Lee praised. “With that kind of hitting technique, if he continues to play consistently, he has a very high chance of hitting much better,” he said.

Recently, commentator Park Yong-taek also commented, “Personally, I think that Kim Bum-seok will be amazing after 500 at-bats.”

Kim hit 10 home runs as a junior at Gyeongnam High School

Setting a new record for the most home runs in a season since he began using wooden bats in high school competitions. He was selected by LG in the first round (No. 7) of the 2023 rookie draft. “The proper name Kim Bum-seok will become synonymous with Korean baseball,” said Cha Myung-seok, the team’s general manager.

Kim, a catcher, was rehabbing his shoulder last year and only appeared in 10 games for the first team at the end of the season, batting 1-for-1 (3-for-27) with one home run. Manager Yoon Kyung-yup included Kim in the Korean Series roster to give him some big-game experience. He pinch-hit in Game 4 and went 1-for-1.

Heading into the season, Yim had mentioned that he planned to give Kim a chance as a full-time backup catcher in the first team. However, he suffered an adductor injury in spring training and was sent home halfway through the season. Yim criticized Kim for failing to lose weight. Kim worked his way back into shape in the rehabilitation program and joined the first team on April 12. He had two hits and two RBIs in three pinch-hitting opportunities and has been given the opportunity to start eight consecutive games, starting with the SSG doubleheader on Nov. 21.

In 11 games this season,

Kim is batting .405 (12-for-34) with two home runs, 12 RBIs, four runs scored, a .405 on-base percentage, a .588 slugging percentage and a .993 OPS. He has also shown great clutch ability, going 4-for-4 with runners in scoring position (9-for-10) with 10 RBI, one home run and two doubles.

“Right now, he’s playing designated hitter, and in a little while, he’ll be playing catcher,” said Yeom, adding, “He can win the Rookie of the Year.” Hwang Jun-seo (Hanwha), Kim Taek-yeon (Doosan), and Jeon Mir (Lotte) are the top three rookies in this year’s Rookie of the Year race. Kim Bum-seok, who played fewer games and had fewer at-bats last year, is also eligible for Rookie of the Year.

Kim has been batting in the No. 3 and No. 5 center field spots recently and has been performing well. 사설 토토사이트 “I used him at No. 3 because the (main) players were missing. Bum-seok’s best batting order is around No. 7. It’s good for him and good for the team. If he can’t hit at No. 7, he’s less likely to be criticized by fans,” he said, referring to the development of young hitters.

He mentioned how LG tried to develop Park Byung-ho as a No. 4 hitter in the past, but failed because they kept him at No. 4 even though he couldn’t hit. “There are a lot of important situations at No. 4. If we had kept Park Byung-ho at No. 8, we would have been much more successful,” Yoon said.

Han Dong-hee was designated for assignment

The illusion was shattered just 10 days after his return to the first team. Han Dong-hee was designated for assignment on Sept. 29. It was only eight games after he was enrolled in the first team on the 19th.

It was a bright spot in a struggling Lotte Giants batting lineup that ranked dead last in team batting average and OPS (on-base percentage plus slugging percentage).

In his seventh year with the club, he had a very determined winter. Before the season, she attended Kang Jeong-ho’s academy in Los Angeles with Dae-ho Lee.

He received rave reviews. In spring training, he showed off his good form, hitting a home run in an exchange game against the Chiba Lotte Marines. “I want to hit as many home runs as possible before I go to the army,” he said. However, during an exhibition game, he suffered an unexpected side injury while swinging and was removed from the opening day roster.

As the team’s struggles continued, 토토사이트 and his long at-bats became more noticeable, he was promoted to the first team ahead of schedule.

The reality was harsh. The offense left much to be desired.

Last year’s top recipient of the Kang Jeong-ho School, NC Dinos’ Son As-seob, has struggled to start the season with a 2-for-6 record and a .639 OPS. Park Min-woo, who attended the program for the first time this year, is batting 3-for-4 with an OPS of 0.820, which is better than last year. Kim Jae-hwan of the Doosan Bears is batting just 2.05, but he’s showing signs of life with seven home runs.

Han Dong-hee, however, hasn’t had the Kang Jung-ho effect so far this season. He’s just 1-for-6 with three home runs in 18 at-bats and one RBI. He didn’t have a single long ball, let alone a home run. Han struck out five times with no walks. He also committed two errors on defense.

He contributed less offensively than Son Ho-young, who has recently emerged as the hope of the Lotte infield, and even veteran Kim Min-sung, which is why he was sent to the second team.

According to KBO rules, he needs a 10-day grace period to return to the first team.

He could return at the latest in the second week of May against the Hanwha Eagles.

This was when Lotte manager Kim Tae-hyung deemed him “worthy of playing in the first team. Han Dong-hee’s enlistment in the Korean Armed Forces Athletic Corps (Commerce) is on June 10th. Even if he does make it to the first team, he won’t have much time to play.

He is the direct junior of Korea’s No. 4 hitter Lee Dae-ho at Gyeongnam High School and was considered the next big thing. He hit double-digit home runs for three consecutive seasons from 2020 to 2022. 파워볼실시간 He also averaged an OPS of over 0.8. In 2022, he even hit a triple for the first time in his career. It looked like he was only 20 home runs away from becoming a full-fledged slugger.

But the loss of Lee Dae-ho, the giant “umbrella,” was too much for him, and last year, his batting average plummeted to .222 with a .583 OPS. This year, he hasn’t convinced us that he has recovered.

Victory’ LG Twins Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop

Victory’ LG Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop “Today’s Comeback Victory is an Opportunity to Gain Confidence”

“Thank you to the bullpen for holding on and the players, including Park Dong-won,

who hit a come from behind home run.”

LG Twins manager Yeom Kyeong-yeop (55) made a game-winning move early on by punishing starting pitcher Choi Won-tae, who had only one out count in the top of the first inning.

Although they were drawn throughout the game,

Manager Yeom showed his will to win by bringing in a series of bullpen pitchers and eventually turned the game around in the bottom of the 8th inning. 파워볼사이트

LG defeated KT Wiz 5-4 in Game 2 of the Korean Professional Baseball Series held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 8th.

They avenged their 2-3 loss the previous day and brought the series back to square one.

After the game, coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “Starter Choi Won-tae had trouble controlling his ball early in the game, so we had a difficult game.

However, the bullpen held on and laid the foundation for victory.

Following Oh Ji-hwan’s solo shot in the 6th inning and Kim Hyun-soo’s timely hit in the 7th,

Park Dong-won hit a come-from-behind home run in the 8th inning,

he said after recovering the game, hoping that “it will be an opportunity to build confidence that we can win the series, not just one win.

” It is also a great benefit that our young bullpen had a very good experience today.

“We can boldly use young bullpen players such as Jung Woo-young, Baek Seung-hyeon, and Yoo Young-chan in the remaining games,” he said with satisfaction.

He was also satisfied that Go Woo-seok, who was the losing pitcher in the first game,

made the save in the second game, preserving the victory by one run.

The coach said, “Go Woo-seok wasn’t in bad shape in the first game either.

“My opponent (Moon Sang-cheol) hit one missed throw well,” he said.

“Today, he regained his form.”

“We can only achieve our goal if Wooseok maintains his finishing position,” he said.

LG has entered the Korean Series for the first time in 21 years since 2002, and is aiming to win the championship for the first time in 29 years since 1994.

Director Yeom Kyung-yeop stood on the Korean Series stage for the first time in nine years since 2014,

when he was leading the Nexen Heroes (now Kiwoom).

Coach Yeom has not yet won a championship as a coach.

He said, “For me personally, today’s victory means a lot.”

Of course, Choi Won-tae’s early defeat was not in Coach Yeom’s plan.

However, Coach Yeom responded flexibly and led the team to a comeback victory.

Coach Yeom once again emphasized another income gained from the victory, saying, “There are more cards to use in the bullpen,” and said, “The starter for Game 3 is Lim Chan-gyu.

The starter for Game 4 will be Choi Won-tae, who threw 200,000 balls today, or Kim Yun-sik as originally planned.

“We have to think about whether to put him in.

There is also a possibility of removing Choi Won-tae from the starting lineup altogether,”

he said, also revealing his newly acquired concerns.

However, the biggest worry was put aside by winning the second game.

Coach Yeom confessed, I was really sorry to the fans for losing in the first game.”

They cheered me passionately, but I couldn’t repay them, so I couldn’t sleep well,” and added, “I’m really happy that our players came together today and showed a good game to the fans.”

“Thank you to everyone, and thank you to the fans,” he said with relief.

Benjamin vs Lim Chan-gyu, KS Championship Trophy

Benjamin vs Lim Chan-gyu, KS Championship Trophy Direction 3rd Round Selection Match

Korean series with 1 win and 1 loss.

Announced as a starter for the 3rd game to be held in Suwon on the 10th.

The 2023 KBO Korean Series between KT Wiz and LG Twins is tightly contested with 1 win and 1 loss, and Wes Benjamin (30, KT) and Lim Chan-gyu (31, LG) will face off in the third game. 카지노사이트킹

After the second game of the Korean Series held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 8th,

KT coach Lee Kang-cheol and LG coach Yeom Kyung-yeop announced Benjamin and Lim Chan-gyu as starters for Game 3, respectively.

Wes Benjamin

For KT, left-handed pitcher Benjamin, who had 15 wins, 6 losses, and an average ERA of 3.54 in 29 regular season games, took on a key role in Game 3.

This is his first appearance in five days since appearing in Game 5 of the playoffs against NC Dinos on the 5th.

Benjamin is on the starting mound every five days in this fall baseball season.

His overall KBO League postseason record, including last year’s semi-playoffs, is 4 games, 1 win, 2 losses, and an average ERA of 3.27.

Benjamin showed off his ‘Grim Reaper’-like appearance against LG this season.

He has 4 wins and no losses in 5 appearances, with an earned run average of 0.84.

Wes Benjamin tightly tied up the left-handed batters that LG is proud of.

Oh Ji-hwan, Hong Chang-ki, and Park Hae-min all had a batting average of just 0.167 (2 hits in 12 at-bats) against Benjamin,

while Kim Hyun-soo’s batting average was 0.182 (2 hits in 11 at-bats).

Moon Bo-kyung had a batting average of 0.100 with 1 hit in 10 at-bats, and Moon Seong-ju had no hits in 7 at-bats.

Players playing in the Korean Series agree that “regular season opponent records do not mean much in short-term games.”

If Benjamin overturns this perception and plays ‘as usual’ against LG, KT’s victory becomes even closer.

In response to this, LG will have Lim Chan-gyu on the starting mound as scheduled.

Lim Chan-gyu

He is an avid LG fan who has supported LG since elementary school and cried, saying, ‘I don’t want to go to school’ when they finished second in the Korean Series in 2002.

Lim Chan-gyu, who calls himself a “successful otaku,” took on the important responsibility of saving LG, which was in crisis.

In the second game, LG’s starter Choi Won-tae gave up 4 runs in ⅓ innings,

leaving the mound without even completing the first inning, and starting the bullpen early.

In Game 2, the bullpen pitchers combined for 8⅔ innings without allowing any runs, but for LG,

the best scenario is for Lim Chan-gyu to last on the mound for as long as possible.

Lim Chan-gyu took the victory every time he came out in a situation where the starting lineup collapsed at the beginning of the season and was on the mound for LG.

He played a decisive role in regaining his strength.

Having had his best year by finishing the regular season with 14 wins, 3 losses, 1 hold, and an ERA of 3.43,

he needs to repeat the comeback performance of May, when he won all 4 games.

This year, he faced KT in the regular season and did not have good results.

He had 4 games, 1 win, 1 loss, 1 hold, and an ERA of 6.61.

In the KT batting lineup, Kim Min-hyuk, Kim Sang-soo (batting average of 0.571),

Hwang Jae-gyun (batting average of 0.500) showed a strong performance against Chan-gyu Lim.

However, Lim Chan-gyu did not give up a single home run to KT batters.

Park Dong-won was selected as the Daily MVP of Game 2 of the Korean Series and received a prize of 1 million won.

Park Dong-won, who started his professional career with Seoul Heroes (now Kiwoom) in 2009,

played in the Korean Series wearing the Heroes uniform in 2014 and 2019,

but suffered the bitter taste of defeat.

Park Dong-won, who was traded to the KIA Tigers in 2022,

signed a free agent (FA) contract with LG for up to 6.5 billion won (2 billion won contract deposit, 4.5 billion won total annual salary) for four years after the end of the season.

Korean Series

Park Dong-won said, “Excluding me, LG’s batting lineup is truly breathtaking.

As a catcher, I am very lucky not to have to face LG Twins.”

He added, “When I get the chance, I tell our pitchers, ‘How good it is to not have to face LG batters.’

“I want to,” he said.

However, Park Dong-won is also the ‘LG gun’ that opponents fear.

It has been 13 years since Jo In-seong (28 home runs) in 2010 that an LG catcher hit more than 20 home runs in a season.

LG, who lost 2-3 in the first game and was dragged by giving up 4 points in the second game,

turned the game around with Park Dong-won’s one shot.

LG, dreaming of winning the Korean Series for the first time in 29 years,
