The topic of baseball these days is the World Baseball Classic.
600 players from 20 countries have been released, and the best players, including 8 major league MVPs, will participate.
In Korea, the eyes are definitely focused on Lee Jung-hoo. Lee Jung-hoo crossed the 40% batting average in the first half of the 2022 season, raising expectations for his dream batting average of 40%. Lee Jung-hoo finished the season with a 0.349, but he is considered the only hitter to challenge the 400 mark.
The legendary batsman summoned when talking about 40% is Baek In-cheon, who recorded 40% 1pun 2ri in the first year of 1982. Baek 스포츠토토In-cheon is the only 40% hitter in the history of Korean professional baseball.
In 1962, Baek In-cheon, who was the first Korean player to go abroad and became the Pacific League batting champion in 1975, joined MBC Blue Dragon as a manager and player with the launch of Korean professional baseball in 1982, and showed a ‘different level’ baseball. He also lived as a leader, such as managing LG, Samsung and Lotte.
Baek In-cheon, who has lived a turbulent life, is now living alone in her 80s. It is said that it is almost the only former Hanwha coach Yoo Seung-an to come and go. I tried to capture Baek In-cheon’s past and present.
