Starting with Korean special Park Chan-ho in 1994, the advancement of domestic players into the major leagues has become very active.
A total of 26 players have stepped onto the major league stage at least briefly as amateur free agents or postings this season, including Ha-seong Kim, Ji-man Choi (San Diego Padres), Ji-hwan Bae (Pittsburgh Pirates), and Hyun-jin Ryu (Toronto Blue Jays). .
Among them, four players were selected as All-Stars whose individual skills were measured: Chan-ho Park (LA Dodgers), Byung-hyun Kim (Arizona Diamondbacks), Shin-soo Choo (Texas Rangers), and Hyun-jin Ryu (Toronto).
There are no winners of individual awards presented by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America (BBWAA), such as Rookie of the Year, MVP, or Cy Young Award. Japan has produced Rookie of the Year and MVP winners.
Among the overseas teams, Kim Byung-hyun is the only one to have received a World Series (WS) championship ring. He participated in WS wins with the Arizona Diamondbacks (2001) and Boston Red Sox (2004).
However, the player who popped the most champagne스포츠토토 was by far Ryu Hyun-jin. He has been to the postseason stage the most, including the World Series. The team is lucky.
Last month, the Los Angeles Dodgers won the West Division championship in Seattle and popped champagne in the locker room. On this day, starter Clayton Kershaw (35) pitched 4 innings, and rookie Emmett Sheehan (23) pitched 3 innings, winning 6-2. Kershaw told rookie Sheehan, “Enjoy this time. “No one knows when a time like this will come again,” he said.
It is a scene that stands in sharp contrast to Shohei Otani (LA Angels), the best active player who also hits two pitches, who debuted in MLB in 2018 and has yet to pop the champagne.
It is difficult to advance to the major league postseason. Of the 30 teams, 12 will advance to fall baseball. The probability of advancing to PS is 40%. It has the lowest probability among the four major U.S. stocks. In the KBO League, five teams, or half of the 10 teams, will play fall baseball.
Ryu Hyun-jin had the good fortune of joining the prestigious LA Dodgers through posting in 2013. The Dodgers were always in the postseason until he left the team as a free agent after the 2019 season. This is the 11th consecutive year of advancement. Although he was not included in the 2016 and 2017 postseason entries due to shoulder surgery, he popped the champagne with his teammates.
