Amid the interest and support of owner Shin Dong-bin, the Lotte Giants are producing good synergies, such as producing excellent results.토토사이트
Shin Dong-bin, chairman of the Lotte Group and owner of the Lotte Giants, visited Sajik Stadium in Busan prior to the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League home match between the Hanwha Eagles and the team in the 6th game of the season held on the 13th. Lotte gave the owner the joy of victory by winning 7-5 after a fierce battle of 3 hours and 57 minutes, and recaptured the 3rd place by winning the first game of the week.
On this day, starter Charlie Barnes gave up 4 runs (4 earned runs) in 3⅓ innings, but Jin Seung-Hyun (1⅔ innings, 2 runs) – Yoon Myung-Jun (⅔ innings) – Kim Do-Gyu (⅓ innings) – Jeong Seong-Jong (1 inning) – Choi Yi-Jun (1 inning) )-Seungmin Koo (1 inning) took the mound in turn and secured the team victory by tying up the Hanwha batting line. He did a great job with 2 goals.
After Seong Min-gyu took office, Lotte’s team color has changed a lot. Rather than spending money indiscriminately, he has focused on nurturing promising players and has been aiming for a ‘leap’ by reducing the payroll of the players every year. And after the 2022 season ended, Lotte took a full-fledged move. Although the club’s finances deteriorated due to the new coronavirus infection (Corona 19), the strong support of the parent company was backed by the background that Lotte was able to stand at the top of the Stove League.
After the 2022 season ended, Lotte’s first move was the club’s “first” non-FA multi-year contract with “Glasses Ace” Park Se-woong. Lotte said at the time, “We signed a five-year contract with Park Se-woong for a total of 9 billion won to stabilize the starting pitching staff, which is the main pillar of the team.” “Lotte Giants’ policy is to strengthen communication and cooperation in various fields such as finishing training, spring camp, and facilities to prepare for and prepare for the club’s next season with Lotte Holdings, the largest shareholder.”
Lotte signed a multi-year contract with Park Se-woong and even distributed an unusual press release a day later. Lotte Holdings, the parent company of the Lotte Giants, will provide financial support for season operation and investment in order to “give ‘wings’ to the subsidiary Lotte Giants’ emergency season next year. Lotte Holdings preemptively solves this problem and supports the club to make investments in securing future capabilities.”
It wasn’t that he had neglected baseball in the meantime, but he expressed his will to participate in the free agency market with the intention that he would pay more attention and support. As a result, Lotte succeeded in reinforcing the infield center line, which had suffered a headache in recent years, by signing contracts with Yoo Kang-nam for a total of 8 billion won over 4 years and Noh Jin-hyeok for a total of 5 billion won over 4 years. Signing a contract with a total value of 4 billion won for one year, he showed the most active movement in the FA market.
Although it cannot be said that it is a ‘performance of investment’, Lotte’s movement is directly related to performance. Lotte caused a sensation by finishing last April with ‘exclusive 1st place’, and succeeded in bringing Lotte fans who turned their backs back to the baseball field by running even a streak of victories. And in May, he succeeded in maintaining a good atmosphere by achieving an excellent record of 13-9 with a win rate of 0.591 (3rd place).
The main background behind Lotte Holdings’ generous support was Chairman Shin Dong-bin’s growing ‘interest’ in the Lotte Giants. On April 27, 2021, I visited the LG Twins match held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul, which was the first time in six years. Based on this move, the frequency of visiting the baseball field to watch the game of the Lotte Giants began to increase, until the resignation Hanwha match on July 13, 2022 and the resignation LG match on October 8, 2022.
The number of visits to the baseball field increased and the period began to shorten, and in the spring camp prior to this season, exchanges were held with Chiba Lotte Marines, a ‘brother team’, and joint training was held. All of this was the will of owner Shin Dong-bin. After the 2023 season is over, a project to interact with Chiba Lotte’s first team is also underway.
Shin Dong-bin, the owner, gave a ‘surprise gift’ worth about 38 million won to the first-team players, coaching staff, trainers, interpreters, and training assistants as Lotte showed good performance by winning 9 consecutive wins at the beginning of the season. And on the 13th, he visited Sajik Stadium with Busan Mayor Park Hyung-joon, provided lunch boxes containing abalone and lobster to the players, and watched the baseball game without leaving his seat until the end of the game. As a result, he recently won three consecutive wins at the baseball field.
In particular, owner Shin Dong-bin smiled and applauded when Yoon Dong-hee, who led the team to victory, scored the third hit. And after the game was over, he came down to the ground and shook hands with the players and did not forget to encourage them.
The interest of the club’s high-ranking officials sometimes puts a burden on the team. However, now Lotte is creating a good synergy effect, not a burden.
