What if you had a little more uniform number?
The Doosan Bears signed a 4+2 year contract with Yang Eui-ji (35) last month for a total of 15.2 billion won.
Yang Eui-ji returned to Doosan after four years. Yang Eui-ji, who joined Doosan in 2006, played in Doosan’s first team in earnest from 2010 until 2018, playing an active role as a host representing Doosan as well as the KBO League. After the end of the 2018 season, he left Doosan by signing a 4-year contract with NC for a total of 12.5 billion won, but returned to his parent’s home after 4 years.
The number 25 symbolizes Yang Eui-ji토토사이트. The number 25 was always engraved on the back of Yang Eui-ji, who played for Doosan and NC as well as the national team.
Doosan’s No. 25 has changed owners ever since Yang Eui-ji left. In 2019, Bae Young-soo, current Lotte coach, wore the number 25 while playing for Doosan, and Kang Seung-ho, who came as a free agent compensation player for Choi Joo-hwan, also wore number 25.
This year, Hwang Gyeong-tae chose number 25. However, Hwang Gyeong-tae announced his retirement in early June, and Lee Yu-chan, who was discharged from the business last September, filled the 25th position, which had been vacant for about three months.
Lee Yu-chan applied for a change of his uniform number at the start of finish camp. Lee Yu-chan wore number 7, which he had worn for two years from 2017. It’s not a 100% guarantee, but if Lee Yu-chan was wearing number 25, he could have expected a small gift from Yang Eui-ji. However, Lee Yoo-chan smiled and said, “It’s not a waste at all. I also put the number I wanted.”
As Lee Yu-chan, he missed an opportunity to be more condescending. In the major leagues, a transfer player gives a gift to a player who yields his favorite uniform number. Choo Shin-soo, who came to SSG Landers from the major leagues last year, presented Lee Tae-yang with a luxury watch when he gave up his number 17.
Lee Yu-chan said, “I put on number 25, which was fine among the remaining numbers after I was discharged from the military. Apart from senior Yang Eui-ji, I originally planned to change my number after the season ended.” I saw it, and I decided to wear number 7. (Kwon) Min-seok, who was wearing number 7, said he would change his number, so I chose number 7.”
