The Samsung Lions Park in Daegu, South Korea, hosted the home opener of the Samsung Lions of the Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) on May 29, and had a very welcome guest: left-hander Chau Chan, one of the main players in Samsung’s four consecutive victories. He came to the ballpark to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.

A 2006 first-round pick of Samsung after graduating from Gunsan Sangho High School, Chau-chan has played for Samsung, LG, and Lotte, compiling a 112-79-1 record with 32 saves and a 4.51 ERA in 457 career first-team games. He reached the 10-win plateau for the first time in his career in 2010 and reached double-digit wins eight times in his career. He retired from playing last year and is currently working as a commentator.

“As a pitcher who was a pillar of the mound during the Samsung Lions’ dynasty, Chau-chan was chosen to deliver the opening pitch to mark the beginning of the rebuilding of the franchise,” said a club official.

When asked about his most memorable moment at Daegu Samsung Lions Park, 카지노사이트 Chau Chan replied, “I remember my first pitch on the opening day, and I also remember my last pitch that year. It will probably remain the most memorable moment even today through today’s pitch.”

Many of his teammates from the dynasty have gone on to become coaches.

“A lot of the players from the dynasty are gone, but (Oh) Seung-hwan is still active and most of the other players are coaches,” Chau-chan said. “It’s been a while since I left Samsung, but I’m familiar with the place itself, so we just said hello and didn’t talk about anything special.

Chowchan emphasized that Samsung’s juniors should emulate “living legends” Oh Seung-hwan (pitcher) and Kang Min-ho (catcher).

“I think it will be very helpful to have seniors like Oh Seung-hwan and Kang Min-ho in the same team, who are textbook examples. I think they will grow into good players if they follow their seniors, and if that happens, the harmony between the new and old members of the team will be good.”

He also had some advice for left-handed prospects like Lee Seung-hyun (No. 57) and Lee Seung-min. “I know Lee Seung-hyun personally,” Chau-chan said, “and he’s a left-hander. 메이저 토토사이트 I think he needs a little time, but I think he will show good things if he approaches it with confidence,” he said.

“I thought I would be nervous about broadcasting Samsung’s games, but I think I’ll get better through today’s sigu. I will prepare well so that I can do a good broadcast not only for Samsung but also for the team.”

“I left the team without saying goodbye to the Samsung fans, so it will be a meaningful time to say goodbye to them today,” he said with a smile.

Meanwhile, Chau-chan said he plans to expand his horizons by traveling to the United States to study baseball.
