Yang Eui-ji (36), the homemaker of the Doosan Bears, attended the initiation ceremony held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium on the 11th and expressed gratitude that he was able to return to his parents’ home thanks to the owner, Doosan Group Chairman Park Jung-won, head coach Lee Seung-yeop, and fans.
Yang Eui-ji obtained a requalification as a free agent after last season and signed a 4+2 year contract with Doosan for 15.2 billion won. The best FA treatment ever was possible thanks to the strong support of Chairman Park Jeong-won. Chairman Park attended Yang Eui-ji and manager Lee’s dinner without notice and said, “I wanted to buy you a meal,” and captured the heart of the best catcher in the league.
Yang Eui-ji said, “I was having a meal with coach Lee Seung-yeop, but the owner suddenly came and I was very embarrassed. I didn’t know whether I was eating with my nose or mouth (laughs). He said he wanted to buy me a meal before. Thank you for saying, ‘I came to buy you a meal.’ He thought of me a lot and said, ‘I want to be with you’, so I said, ‘I know’.” 스포츠토토
When the photo taken with the owner was released before the contract, I sweated for a while. Yang Eui-ji laughed and replied, “I took a picture because I wanted to take a picture together, but I didn’t know that it would become such a big deal.
Director Lee, who was active enough to suggest a meal, also moved Yang Eui-ji’s heart. Yang Eui-ji said, “When I first went to Miyazaki camp after I was discharged from the military, coach Lee Seung-yeop (who was a player at the time) came every evening for night training. .I felt that I had to work hard. I watched from a distance, but he was also a person who knew how to take good care of his juniors. That’s why he seems to be respected by many people, “he said, saying that it was an honor to be able to work with director Lee Seung-yeop.
