There was a princess who made Lee Jung-hoo happy.
At many award ceremonies, we’ve seen little princes and princesses take the stage to congratulate their dads and moms. At the 2022 KBO League Golden Glove Awards Ceremony, I saw the son of KT Park Byeong-ho and the daughter of Doosan Yang Eui-ui come up on stage, give her a bouquet of flowers and hug her father warmly. And the father who won the Golden Globe said, “I am happy to be a proud father to my children.” 토토
But who was the princess who gave Kiwoom Lee Jung-hoo a bouquet?
If asked to pick just one best player in the 2022 KBO League, many people would pick Kiwoom Heroes Lee Jung-hoo.
This season, Lee Jung-hoo recorded 193 hits in 553 at-bats, 23 homers, 113 RBIs, a batting average of 0.349, and an OPS of 0.996.
In the 2022 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League Golden Glove Awards Ceremony, outfielder category voting, Lee Jung-hoo won 304 votes (97.1%) out of a total of 313 valid votes, winning the outfielder Golden Glove with an overwhelming vote. It was a natural result.
Lee Jung-hoo, who won the Golden Glove award from Park Yong-taek, received congratulations from general manager Ko Hyeong-wook and director Hong Won-ki. Lee Jung-hoo, who swept all the award ceremonies this season, stood on stage with a calm expression, probably familiar with winning awards. But he suddenly crouched down and smiled brightly. This is because Yang Eui-ji’s daughter from Doosan came up on stage with a bouquet of flowers.
At first, Lee Jung-hoo did not know that he had come up to congratulate him. She knew that Yang Eui-ui’s daughter came on stage to congratulate Na Seong-beom, who ate rice with Yang Eui-ui in NC. But as he approached him, he knelt down, met his gaze, and smiled happily. Congratulated by the unexpected princess, Lee Jung-hoo held the bouquet received from the princess tightly in her arms and was happy until the awards ceremony was over.
On the other hand, Lee Jung-hoo, who won the MVP with 5 batting crowns this year and even won the Golden Glove, has nothing to show in the KBO League anymore. Since 2018, it has won the Golden Globe Award for five consecutive years. He is recognized as the best hitter in the country. Already, American major league clubs are paying attention to him, saying, ‘Lee Jung-hoo’s contact ability can work well in the major leagues’.
Lee Jung-hoo also did not hide his dream of going abroad. At the Golden Globe Awards, he said, “I’ve been so busy lately with the awards ceremony. I think I’ll have to talk to the club now.” If Lee Jung-hoo digests the 2023 season full-time, he can qualify for posting and challenge the major leagues.
