Doosan Bears coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “Since Yang Eui-ji (37), the master of the house, joined the team, there has been no day without a dry smile. Yang Eui-ji signed a 4+2 year total of 15.2 billion won in the free agency market and joined Doosan. He was the best FA treatment ever. Ahead of the 2019 season, if you add the amount of his first free agent contract to the NC Dinos for 4 years and 12.5 billion won, it reaches 27.7 billion won. Coach Lee, a legend of Korean professional baseball, can also describe Eui-ji Yang as a ‘big man’.
Director Lee welcomed Yang Eui-ji once again at the 2023 founding ceremony held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium on the 16th. He said, “When Yang Eui-ji sat as the opposing team’s catcher, I felt that it was difficult. I prepared for the game while reading the catcher’s tendency, the pitcher’s tendency, and the team’s tendency. This has come,” he said, looking back on his days as a player.
“I felt that Yang Eui-ji is a smart player who prepares a lot for the opponent team. I also prepare a lot, but when I look at Yang Eui-ji, he plays without any expression. It was difficult to determine what this player was thinking. Now that five years have passed since then, I think I will attack my opponent like a fox and like a bear.”
Pitchers are also waiting for a meeting with Yang Eui-ji. If the battery breathing is good, pitchers’ grades will naturally go up. Pitchers who are working with Yang Eui-ji for the first time have more expectations.
Hong Geon-hee, the pitching team leader, said, “I have never been on the same team as (Yang) Eui-ji. There is a catcher that I would like to work with once in a while as a pitcher. .Because he is such a great player. Should I say that I am excited? I want to work together as soon as possible.”
Sidearm Park Chi-guk joined Doosan in 2017 온라인카지노 and has experience working with Eui-ji Yang for the second year as a pro. Yang Eui-ji was the catcher who greatly helped Park Chi-guk grow into Pil Seung-jo.
Park Chi-guk said, “When I did my best in 2018, Battery was Ji-ri’s senior. I have a little more expectations. At that time (Jakarta-Palembang, 2018), I went out together to the Asian Games and it remained as a better memory.” I was looking forward to the moment to match.
As he is a top-level national team catcher, there are many places to find Yang Eui-ui. Yang Eui-ji trains in Australia for a while, and immediately goes to the United States, the training ground for the World Baseball Classic (WBC) national team. If he returns after finishing the WBC tournament, there is a high possibility that he will rejoin the team after mid-March.
Director Lee expected the backup catchers to show their competitiveness well until Yang Eui-ji arrived. He said, “Yang Eui-ji can’t play all 144 games as a catcher. The second and third catchers have to come out. There are Jang Seung-hyun, Ahn Seung-han, and Park Yoo-yeon. The second and third catchers are important. Next to Yang Eui-ji. I think it will be judged based on whether I get in sync with the pitchers, prepare for the game, and improve my stamina.”
Yang Eui-ji said, “When I was on the opposing team, I felt like I lost my confidence, so I want to give my all to my juniors. I want to quickly regain my confidence on the field. I want to go out to the baseball field and show it to the fans. (Personally,) I haven’t been able to play fall baseball for two years. I think I’ll have to do well so that I can go up to the Korean Series by playing a lot of fall baseball during the remaining player period.”
