“I want to spend next year’s Lunar New Year with my teammates.”
Many players in the KBO don’t have many memories of spending Lunar New Year with their families. February is the time of year when professional baseball players are in full swing at spring training. It’s a time of year when baseball players can’t afford to let it go. It’s a time to plant the seeds for the year ahead. It’s a painful time when they can’t be with their families, but they have to endure it.
That’s why clubs organize various events at their camps during the Lunar New Year. They serve tteokguk to the players and play folk games such as yutnori to relieve stress.
This was the case for the Kiwoom Heroes, who set up camp in Arizona, USA. On Lunar New Year’s Day, the team served rice cake soup and other festive foods to its players as a pre-training treat. While eating, the players exchanged New Year’s greetings.
After the training, we organized a fun athletic competition. It’s not fun to just play. Coach Hong Won-ki organized a $500 prize fund out of his own pocket. After a fierce competition, the field staff team beat the beast team to win the title.
For foreign players, this is a strange but interesting scene. “I heard that Lunar New Year is a very special holiday for Koreans, and I was happy to be with my teammates on such a special day,” said Dawson, a foreign batsman who joined the team as a substitute midway through last season. I look forward to spending Lunar New Year with my teammates next year.” A very meaningful comment. A sign of intent to re-sign. Dawson ‘hit the jackpot’ in a Kiwoom jersey last year for $85,000, and this season he put his stamp on a $600,000 deal. The lowest price 카지노사이트 for a foreign player in the 10 clubs. However, Kiwoom is expecting him to play a big role as a ‘value-for-money’ foreign player.
The new foreign pitcher, Heisus, also said, “The most memorable part of the game was the yuknol. I think I can do better next time. The tteokguk was also delicious. It was a valuable time to learn about Korean culture and traditions.”
After celebrating the holiday with tteokguk and yutnol, the Kiwoom players will finish their camp in Arizona, U.S.A., on Nov. 14 and travel to Kaohsiung, Taiwan, for their second camp on Nov. 15.
