Director Song Jin-woo, “Ryu Hyun-jin, run for all 8 years and break my record as the oldest!”

Coach Song Jin-woo giving a high five to Ryu Hyun-jin in 2012

Ryu Hyun-jin signs the second 8-year contract in history. If the period is fulfilled, active duty until the age of 44

Coach Jin-woo Song (58) of the Oneston semi-professional baseball team, who holds the record for the oldest player to play in professional baseball, asked Hyun-jin Ryu (36), who returned to the KBO League after signing an 8-year contract with the Hanwha Eagles, to break his record. I sent a message of support.

Coach Song Jin-woo said in a phone call with Yonhap News on the 22nd, “It is surprising that Hanwha signed an 8-year contract with Ryu Hyun-jin. There may be internal circumstances at the club, but I hope Hyun-jin completes the entire contract period.”

He added, “I hope to break my record by running for all eight years without any injuries and in good health.”

On the 22nd, the Hanwha club announced that it had signed an 8-year contract with Ryu Hyun-jin, who returned from his Major League Baseball (MLB) career, for a total of 17 billion won.

The total amount was somewhat expected, but the contract period was surprising.

The 8-year contract is the longest contract in KBO League history, and is the second following the free agent contract (5+3 years, total KRW 14 billion) signed by NC Dinos with Park Min-woo in November 2022.

The situations of Park Min-woo and Ryu Hyun-jin are different.Park Min-woo signed an 8-year contract when he was 29 years old, but Ryu Hyun-jin is currently 36 years old.

He will turn 37 next month when the regular season opens.

In order to fulfill the eight-year contract, Ryu Hyun-jin must remain active until 2031, when he turns 44.

If Ryu Hyun-jin completes the contract period, he will far exceed the record of the oldest player in KBO League history (43 years, 7 months, 7 days) set by coach Jin-Woo Song in 2009.

Some say it is unrealistic.

There is also an interpretation that Hanwha signed an 8-year contract as a way to extend the payment period to solve the problem of exceeding the salary cap (total annual salary cap).

However, the Hanwha club explained that this contract contained ‘symbolism’.

Hanwha said, “This contract contains the meaning of a new history in the KBO League. If Ryu Hyun-jin remains active during the contract period, he will surpass Hanwha legend Song Jin-woo and set a new record in Korean professional baseball.” 일본야동

Promise the highest courtesy and exercise patience Hanwha saves Ryu Hyun-jin’s pride

Ryu Hyun-jin smiles

“I couldn’t get a $10 million offer from MLB” Based on participation in posts from 12 years ago Hanwha continues to woo and deliver a contract at the end of January. Son Hyuk’s friendship also played a role.

The 2012 Professional Baseball All-Star Game was held at Daejeon Hanbat Baseball Stadium on July 21, 2012.Western team starting pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin of Hanwha is coming down the mound after allowing no runs in the bottom of the second inning.

The KBO League’s home team, the Hanwha Eagles, saved the pride of ‘Korean Monster’ Ryu Hyun-jin (36).

On the 22nd, Hanwha announced that it had signed an eight-year contract with Ryu Hyun-jin worth a total of 17 billion won.

The total amount of 17 billion won is the highest ever in Korean professional baseball, surpassing the previous record of 15.2 billion won for 4+2 years by Yang Eui-ji (Doosan Bears).

Ryu Hyun-jin, who faced the cold reality in MLB’s Stove League, is grateful for the hospitality of his home team.

Several clubs, including the San Diego Padres and Pittsburgh Pirates, were mentioned as destinations for Ryu Hyun-jin, who became a free agent (FA) in October of last year, but they were unable to reach an agreement.

If it had been a strategy to raise the price, there would have been no problem, but Ryu Hyun-jin said his pride was hurt by the poor evaluation of MLB clubs.

In particular, no team offered an annual average of $10 million, which was a psychological Maginot line.

An official on Ryu Hyun-jin’s side said, “This winter, we did not receive contract offers worth more than $10 million per year on average from major league clubs, and during this process, Ryu Hyun-jin considered returning to the KBO League.”

‘$10 million’ is also the minimum amount that Hanwha set when it posted Ryu Hyun-jin (private competitive bidding) in 2012.

At the time, Hanwha did not plan to allow the company to enter the U.S. unless there was a big league team offering more than $10 million.

However, MLB teams’ evaluation of Ryu Hyun-jin was beyond imagination.The Los Angeles Dodgers gave Hanwha 25,737,737 dollars and 33 cents, which ranks fourth in the major league posting system, and later signed a large six-year contract worth $36 million with Ryu Hyun-jin.

Twelve years have passed since then, and Ryu Hyun-jin may feel the passage of time.

It was impossible to avoid harsh evaluations from local American media.

Jim Bowden, a former MLB general manager, set Ryu Hyun-jin’s price at $8 million per year and advised, “Due to the risk of injury, we will have to accept a one-year contract.”

‘MLB Trade Rumors’, which specializes in transfer news, mentioned Ryu Hyun-jin’s strikeout rate (17.0%), number of innings (11 games, 52 innings), and average fastball speed (88.8 miles per hour) in the 2023 season, calling him a ‘5-inning pitcher’. “It seems difficult to receive more treatment,” he predicted. 토토사이트
