Yang Eui-ji, who visited Enpak for the first time with ‘Bear’ “I’m sorry to the NC fans, I wanted to say hello quickly”￼
Doosan Bears Yang Eui-ji, who has been with Changwon NC Park from the opening game, visited Changwon for the first time wearing a uniform from a team other than the NC Dinos.
Yang Eui-ji will start as the designated hitter in the 4th game of the season against the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League NC Dinos at Changwon NC Park on the 30th. On the 24th, against the Samsung Lions in Jamsil, he suffered a shin injury while running, so the catcher defense is in a difficult state, but there is no problem with hitting, so he was listed in the lineup.안전놀이터
The match on this day drew attention from fans as Yang Eui-ji’s first away game in Changwon after returning to Doosan. Yang Eui-ji played at Changwon NC Park for the first time in seven months since the Hanwha Eagles match on October 8.
He also played against his former team in the Jamsil match against NC on the 4th and 6th of last month, but meeting NC as the enemy at Changwon NC Park was a completely different feeling. Yang Eui-ji is also said to have mixed feelings.
Yang Eui-ji said, “It was a sleepless night the night before. I woke up early in the morning and walked around (Changwon),” he said. I think I’ll be able to play the game a little more comfortably if I say hello.”
Yang Eui-ji transferred to NC for a total of 12.5 billion won over 4 years after obtaining the first FA (free agent) qualification in his life after the end of the 2018 season. The footprints Yang Eui-ji left in NC are clear. Changwon NC Park led the team to fall baseball in the 2019 season, the first year of its opening, and the following year, the history of NC’s first integrated championship was impossible without Yang Eui-ji.
Eui-ji Yang flew with a batting average of 0.328 in the 2020 season, 33 homers and 124 RBIs. Even in the Korean Series, he hit hard with a batting average of 0.318, 1 home run, 3 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.945 and even won MVP.
Although he obtained FA qualification after the end of the 2022 season and signed a six-year contract with Doosan for a total of 15.2 billion won, leaving NC and ending his four-year accompaniment with the Dinos, NC fans welcomed Eui-ji Yang.
When Yang Eui-ji entered the first at-bat in the first inning, applause poured out from the NC cheering seats on the first base side. Yang Eui-ji took off his helmet and bowed down to say hello to the fans who have loved him for the past four years.
Yang Eui-ji said, “I feel very sorry for the NC fans. While playing in NC, not only me but also my family met a lot of really good people and got along well.” he emphasized.
