Today’s Yang Seok-hwan is more expensive than yesterday’s Seok-hwan Yang The Doosan
Bears won 10-5 in a game against the LG Twins in the 2023 Shinhan Bank Sol KBO League held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 16th. Doosan tied for 4th place with Kiwoom Heroes with 7 wins and 6 losses in 13 matches.
For Doosan, this game was a losing game. By the beginning of the 7th inning, it was pushed to 1-4, and the defeat was dark. In the top of the 7th inning, both batters were hit consecutively. Opportunities came, but there was a sense of pressure from being 1st and 2nd base.
However, Doosan had Yang Seok-hwan. At the end of the full count game, 메이저놀이터he fired a left-handed three-run against LG Kim Jin-seong. Doosan fans cheered and the atmosphere was completely over. Afterwards, Doosan overturned the game in the beginning of the 8th inning and kept it and won by 10 points. It was a victory centered on Yang Seok-hwan, who performed terrifyingly with 2 hits, 3 RBIs, 2 points and 1 walk in 4 at-bats, including three runs.
Yang Seok-hwan is a right-handed infielder born in 1991. After joining LG in 2014, he played an active role and wore a Doosan uniform in a 2-to-2 trade in 2021. Since then, while using Jamsil as his home, he has become a blessing to Doosan fans with 20 home runs for two consecutive years. He is the sole leader this season with 4 homers through the 17th.
Yang Seok-hwan, now the center of Doosan, will become a free agent after this season. His performance this season, coupled with his performance over the past two years, makes him a player worthy of a lot of money from multiple clubs.
Last year, Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees of the American Major League played a big role ahead of free agency. Judge hit 62 home runs in the previous season alone, and his free agency ransom increased day by day due to his continuous performance. In the end, Judge signed a large contract with the Yankees for 9 years and 360 million dollars (approximately 470.5 billion won).
Yang Seok-hwan is also creating an environment similar to Judge, although the league, market size, and players are different. Today’s Yang Seok-hwan is more expensive than yesterday’s Yang Seok-hwan, and tomorrow’s Yang Seok-hwan is more expensive than today’s Yang Seok-hwan. Continuing the current trend may be his goal.
