Lee Jung-hoo (25, Kiwoom Heroes), who won 5 KBO League batting crowns last year, started his major league challenge in earnest. I joined hands with Scott Boras, who is called ‘The Devil’s Agent’.
Bora Corporation announced the news of the recruitment of Lee Jung-hoo through SNS on the 25th (Korean time). Lee Jung-hoo declared that he would challenge the major leagues with the post-posting system this season, and he has received permission from his team, Kiwoom. 메이저사이트
Lee Jung-hoo, who took a flight to the United States early this month, is working hard to prepare for the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) and the new season, which will be the stage for the major league showcase. As it is the last season with Kiwoom before the big league challenge, I have a strong will to lift the championship trophy with my colleagues.
Boras is well known to domestic baseball fans as an agent for Korean major leaguers in the past, such as Park Chan-ho (50), Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays), and Choo Shin-soo (41, SSG Landers). This winter, he led the Pittsburgh Pirates’ contract with Shim Jun-seok (19), a promising fastball from Deoksu High School.
The US media expects that Lee Jung-hoo will be able to sign a large-scale contract worth 100 million dollars, or about 123 billion won in our money, considering his outstanding talent and age in his mid-20s. It far exceeds the six-year, $36 million contract signed by Ryu Hyun-jin and the Dodgers in 2013, the highest direct contract in the major leagues from the previous KBO League.
