Yang Eui-ji (36), who returned to Doosan, explained about the happening that a photo taken with owner Park Jeong-won before the contract spread on social media.
After the 2022 season, Yang Eui-ji obtained his second FA (free agent) qualification. As the best current catcher, he was considered the biggest player in the Stove League, and a fierce recruitment battle took place around him.
Among them, Doosan’s interest was the hottest. Head coach Lee Seung-yeop, who took the new baton ahead of the 2023 season, cited the catcher as a vulnerable position and indirectly revealed his willingness to recruit Yang Eui-ji.
Doosan fell to 9th place with a poor performance in the 2022 season with 60 wins, 2 draws and 82 losses with a win rate of 4.2 0.3. The pride of the famous family that entered the Korean series for 7 consecutive years until the 2021 season was damaged. Accordingly, Yang Eui-ji eagerly hoped to lead the rebound in the 2023 season.
Doosan waged an all-out war in the FA market to bring Yang Eui-ji back. Yang Eui-ji proposed a super-large free agency contract worth up to 15.2 billion won (4+2 years), which is more than Kim Gwang-hyun (SSG)’s 15.1 billion won (4 years), the previous highest. Doosan’s active courtship captured Yang Eui-ji’s heart.
However, the day before the announcement of the contract, the owner of Doosan Park Jeong-won posted a picture taken with Yang Eui-ji and director Lee Seung-yeop on social media, drawing attention. The photo reads ‘Welcome Back! Yang Eui-ji’s comeback was a foregone conclusion among fans.
Eventually, Doosan announced a contract with Yang Eui-ji the next day. Yang Eui-ji left for NC in 2019 and returned to Doosan four years later. And on the 11th, at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul, he explained the situation at his initiation ceremony. 온라인바카라
Owner Park joined Eui-ji Yang and Seung-yeop Lee at a meal. Yang Eui-ji said, “It was my first meal with the director, but the owner suddenly came and I was very embarrassed.”
Then, he explained, “The owner said he would buy me a meal in the past, but I was really grateful that he came.”
After finishing the meal, Park asked Eui-ji Yang to take a picture. Yang Eui-ji said, “The owner said he wanted to take a picture, so I took it, but I didn’t know it would be this big (wavelength).”
Yang Eui-ji, who returned to Doosan after four years, shouted victory ahead of the new season. He said, “I set my goal to win every year. I will prepare well for the season and do my best to win the championship.” promised
