won the regular season championship.

by winning the regular season and Korean Series championships.
However, LG Twins fell into a long slump after finishing second in the fall baseball game in 2002 and failing to even advance to the Korean Series.
In recent years, the team has scouted and nurtured young players based on its connections to Seoul,
which are rich in excellent resources, and recruited a large number of free agents (FA),
but suffered the hardship of being eliminated in the first round of the fall baseball season for four consecutive years.
But this year was different.
LG, which was already evaluated as the strongest team before the season, was the subject of maximum caution from other teams’ coaches even at the media day held right before the opening season.
