Rolex Watch

LG captain Oh Ji-hwan met with reporters after finishing the 2024 Professional Baseball Opening Media Day event held at the Lotte Hotel in Sogong-dong, Jung-gu, Seoul on the 22nd and said, “The club said that if we win again this year, we will give a watch to the KS MVP.”

He added, “If we win this season, we will be MVP.”

“I would like to be selected and receive another watch,” he said.

In response to a question related to this, an LG official said, “Early this month, we submitted an award operation plan for the KS MVP to the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) and made a plan,” and added, “However, the specific details have not been confirmed.”

The story of the LG team and Rolex watches dates back to 1998.

The late Chairman Koo Bon-moo, who was leading LG Group at the time, said, “If you win, give it to the KS MVP,” and purchased an expensive Rolex watch worth about 80 million won at the time with his own money and delivered it to the club.

The watch had been sleeping in a safe for a long time, but found its owner last year when LG won.

Oh Ji-hwan

In 2023, Oh Ji-hwan played an active role with a batting average of 0.316, 3 home runs, and 8 RBIs in 5 games against KT Wiz and KS, leading LG to victory, and won the series MVP with overwhelming support in the press vote.

And in November of last year, at the professional baseball championship event, he received a Rolex left by former Chairman Koo Bon-moo from LG Group Chairman Koo Kwang-mo.

Oh Ji-hwan returned the watch to the club, saying it was a keepsake of former Chairman Koo, and Chairman Koo Gwang-mo purchased a new watch and gifted it to Oh Ji-hwan separately.

LG seems to be trying to position the distribution of Rolex watches as a kind of tradition rather than a one-time event.

Meanwhile, the KBO eliminated unnecessary misunderstandings by revising the regulations for merit payments last January.
