With the KBO season set to kick off in just over a month, college best friends LG Twins manager Ryu Ji-hyun and Lotte Giants manager Her Mun-hoe are looking forward to upping the ante in their friendly rivalry this season.
Lotte outfielder Son Ah-seop is still chasing the KBO hits record, coming in at No. 13 on the all-time ranking with 1,904 hits, and second among active players, behind Choi Hyoung-woo of the Tigers with 1,986 hits. But Son has time on his side.
Lotte Giants’ pitcher Park Jin-hyung is looking to increase his number of holds, after completing last year's injury-laden season with disappointing results.
Retail and baseball may seem like two different businesses, but Chung Yong-jin, vice chairman of Shinsegae Group, thinks otherwise.
The Lotte Giants have re-signed veteran slugger and former captain Lee Dae-ho on a two-year deal, ensuring that the franchise star finishes his career with the Busan club.
For the past four seasons, the KBO’s rookie of the year were high school graduates. Lotte Giants’ pitcher Kim Jin-wook hopes to continue the streak in the 2021 season.
By re-signing pitcher Dan Straily for another year, the Lotte Giants now have a complete roster of foreign players for the 2021 season.
After another disappointing season, the Lotte Giants appointed Jeon Jun-woo as their new captain for the 2021 season. Jeon is a one-club man who has played for the Giants for 12 seasons.
The Lotte Giants have appointed pitcher Song Seung-jun as a player-coach for the 2021 season, giving the veteran a year to transition to a new role off the field.
With the Lotte Giants capping off the four-game winning streak, Giants' infielder Oh Yoon-suk maybe history on Sunday against the Hanwha Eagles, becoming the first person in the history of the KBO to hit for the cycle with a grand slam.
