‘Captain’s dignity’ Oh Ji-hwan shoots down 6 juniors

LG Twins’ Oh Ji-hwan made a heartwarming gesture for the team’s juniors in spring training. He donated 6 million won of his own money to the juniors who came to spring training ahead of the starters.

LG is holding its spring camp at the Indian School Park Baseball Field in Scottsdale, Arizona, U.S.A. After winning the Korean Series for the first time in 29 years last year, the team is looking forward to continuing its “dynasty” by staying on top.

LG began training for the camp on Jan. 1 (KST). The main squad arrived in Scottsdale on March 31, while six pitchers – Jung Woo-young (25), Son Ju-young (26), Lee Ji-gang (25), Kim Yun-sik (24), Lee Sang-young (24), and Kang Hyo-jong (22) – arrived in the United States on March 21.

The idea was to quickly improve their condition in the warm weather. This spring training is especially important for Jung Woo-young, 카지노사이트 who had elbow surgery last November, Kim Yun-sik, who suffered from an elbow injury last year, and Son Ju-young, who had elbow surgery in May 2022 and rehabbed for a year. Jung Woo-young and Kim Yun-sik are among the 23 LG pitchers in the camp, and their training schedule is a little slower.

However, the club won’t be able to provide any support before the camp officially starts on February 1.

The players have to pack and prepare their own meals. They arrive in the country about 10 days early and spend a lot of money on food and lodging.

“When we got to the starting lineup, we helped each other out,” says Jung Woo-young. The youngest member, Hyojong, had the hardest time. He was the youngest, so he had to run errands and suffered the most.” “Jihwan’s older brother gave him 6 million won out of his own pocket for the players to use. It was called ‘Ji-hwan’s mini-camp,'” and expressed his gratitude to Ji-hwan.

Of the six players, Jung Woo-young is the highest paid, and Kim Yoon-sik is the highest paid. The rest of the players don’t earn much. Oh secretly donated 6 million won to help the low-salaried players eat, sleep, and live comfortably and ease the burden of expenses.

The gesture was heartfelt.

“I can still take care of myself (because of my high salary), but I was grateful that Ji-hwan helped the other players,” Jung Woo-young said.

“I gave it to the starters to use for what they needed,” said Ji-hwan. Woo Young-i came of his own accord, but the rest of them might not be able to afford it. I thought I could do something for them,” he said, adding, “Hyun-soo did it before, and the seniors before him did it. I learned from that,” he said humbly.

He said he didn’t do it out of a sense of duty as a captain, but as a senior, he wanted to help the juniors who wanted to come and train at their own expense. “It’s not a big deal,” Oh said, but the truth is, no matter how much you’re paid, 바카라사이트 it’s not easy to do for the younger players. Before Oh, Kim Hyun-soo set a good example, so it’s a natural progression of good relationships.

“When Hyun-soo came to LG, I think he did a good job of taking care of that,” Jung Woo-young said. Ji-hwan is doing the same now, and I think I’m learning from that,” he said. “When I look at the seniors above me, I see that they don’t spare anything for the juniors, and they give a lot to us, so it’s not a waste for me to spend money for the juniors and my teammates,” he said. Jung Woo-young also takes his juniors out for meals on their days off at camp.
