LG Park Dong-won was wearing a glossy jumper at the ‘LG Twins 2023 New Year’s Ceremony’ held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the afternoon of the 4th, holding a microphone and making a nervous expression before the event started. Park Dong-won greeted his fellow players and coaching staff as a representative of the new team.
Park Dong-won played catcher for Kiwoom Heroes last season and was traded to Kia Tigers in April. Park Dong-won faithfully played the role of the main catcher at KIA and signed a contract with LG as a free agent (FA) on November 21 last year. Park Dong-won will wear the LG uniform for a contract period of 4 years and a total of 6.5 billion won (down payment of 2 billion 토토 won and annual salary of 4.5 billion won).
At the New Year’s ceremony, there was an introduction of new players. Park Dong-won, Kim Yu-young, and Yun Ho-sol greeted the players together. Park Dong-won, who was holding the microphone before the New Year’s ceremony, briefly and concisely said, “I have not yet experienced a championship. I hope this will be my first win and LG’s first championship in 29 years.” I hope I do, because then I think I will have a stake in winning.”
The players applauded the new players with applause. After that, he smiled as he shook hands with director Yeom Kyung-yeop as he left.
Park Dong-won and LG coach Yeom Kyung-yeop worked together as coaches and players during the Nexen (currently Kiwoom) days.
Park Dong-won said of director Yeom Kyung-yeop, “Anyway, I know the director’s tendencies well, so I can help. The director prepares a lot, so I’m well prepared, so I’m confident.”
Subsequently, Park Dong-won did not hide his excitement about the LG uniform. “I’m still exercising indoors wearing shorts and a half T-shirt. I want to go to spring camp soon and wear a uniform and exercise together,” he said. “I received the uniform a few days after signing the contract. I want to wear a uniform and go to the ground.”
Meanwhile, the LG Twins will depart for the US battery training today on the 30th.
