Although he won the league MVP and the pitcher’s Golden Glove, he did not win the Korean Series. This year may be the last challenge.
Kiwoom Heroes Lee Jung-hoo has reached another milestone that will remain in the KBO League.
Kiwoom gave an annual salary of 1.1 billion won to Lee Jung-hoo, who won the regular season MVP with 5 batting crowns last year, while finalizing the annual salary contract this year. This is a 46.7% increase from last year’s 750 million won. Excluding special cases such as free agency, non-FA multi-year contracts, and returning to overseas clubs, Lee Jung-hoo is the first in KBO league history to record an annual salary of more than 1 billion won with a single-year contract. 슬롯사이트
The highest annual salary in the 7th year of the KBO League, surpassing Ha-seong Kim (550 million won, 2020), is a bonus. As a result, Lee Jung-hoo started with the 3rd year (230 million won) in the KBO League, the 4th year (390 million won), the 5th year (550 million won), the 6th year (750 million won), and the 3rd to 7th year. He became the owner of the highest salary record.
This year, Lee Jung-hoo participated in 142 regular season games and recorded a batting average of 3.49 (193 hits in 553 bats), 23 homers, 113 RBIs, 193 hits, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.996. He even strengthened his slugging power, which was considered a weakness, and tied for fifth in the league in home runs and first in slugging percentage.
After the end of this season, Lee Jung-hoo will advance to the United States with a post. Lee Jung-hoo’s timing to advance to the United States is good, and the club can add posting costs to their finances, and it’s a ‘win-win’ because there’s no fear of being taken away by other teams when they return to Korea later.
