LG Twins’ Jung Ju-hyun (33) decided to retire at the end of this season and will start anew as a leader from next year.
After graduating from Daegu High School, Chung joined LG in 2009. He played in 762 games in the first division so far this year, recording a batting average of 237 with 18 homers, 153 RBIs, 260 runs scored, and 68 steals.헤라카지노
Chung Ju-hyun, who was included in the Korean Series entry held in November, played as a first baseman in the top of the ninth inning with a 15-3 lead in Game 4 of the Korean Series. I didn’t have a chance to bat, but I have also performed in the Korean Series.
After shedding tears at the scene where LG won the Korean Series title for the first time in 29 years, Chung decided to retire after consulting with his team. After 15 years of experience with LG, he acquired the Korean Series title ring, and he will continue to wear the LG uniform as a coach.
Cha Myung-seok, the team’s general manager, mentioned Chung at a beer party with LG fans to commemorate his win. He answered a question from a fan asking about Chung’s position.
Cha said, “Jung Joo-hyun retires and starts as a leader. The position has not been decided yet, but Jung Joo-hyun wants to be a batting coach. I want to be a batting coach without thinking about my overall batting average. I’m thinking about running or defense coach.”
Chung Ju-hyun expressed his decision to retire and how he felt about starting a new career as a coach on his SNS in early December. “Hello, fans of the LG Twins. I’m Jung Ju-hyun, a player of the LG Twins. I’m a little late in greeting him,” Chung said, “First of all, I’d like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the attention and love you’ve given me over the past 15 years. I’m going to retire from my career at the end of this season and start my second act as a leader. It was such a difficult time to decide, but I decided only because I could continue wearing the LG Twins uniform, not the other team’s uniform,” Chung said in announcing his retirement.
“That’s what LG Twins is for me. I’ve been happy and honored to wear the TWINS mark on my chest for 15 years, and I’m very happy and grateful to be able to wear the TWINS mark on my chest. I want to say thank you to the club officials for giving me this opportunity,” he said.
Jung Ju-hyun said, “I joined the LG Twins at the end of the dark age in 2009 and was able to grow up with good teachers for 15 years until my first win in 29 years in 2023, met a good club, played baseball happily, met good seniors, learned a lot, met good friends, played baseball fun, and even won with good colleagues.
