“I will run harder.”

On the 9th. A special gift arrived at the baseball team Hanwha. It was a state-of-the-art smart watch. The sender was Hanwha CEO Park Chan-hyuk. About 60 items were prepared (worth 40 million won). The message was addressed to the first-team players and coaching staff: “Thank you for your hard work and enthusiasm in proving yourself through the tough times. Now we all look forward to reaching even greater heights,” he wrote. The team was overwhelmed by the unexpected gift. There were smiles all around.메이저사이트

The 2023 season is rounding the corner. The first half of Hanwha’s season can be described as ‘hopeful’. They showed that they could do it. The eight-game winning streak for the first time in 18 years is typical. From the 21st of last month against KIA in Daejeon to the 1st of this month against Samsung Electronics in Daegu, the team showed a different side. The team still has a long way to go, but it is encouraging to see that they are building up a winning memory. As of the 10th, Hanwha is in 9th place with 33 wins, 4 draws, and 40 losses. Despite being at the bottom of the table, they are only three games behind fifth-place NC (37 wins, 1 draw, 38 losses).

It’s not the first time. CEO Park Chan-hyuk also sent out a surprise ahead of the start of the 2022 season. He handed each player a tablet with a personalized profile picture and H.I.T.S. (Hanwha In-game Tactic Solution). In addition, the team listened to the players’ grievances and suggestions through top staff member Jung Woo-ram, and renewed the clubhouse and shower facilities. They promised to provide generous support for a better environment. This is a great motivation for the players.

This is in line with recent trends. More and more owners are expressing their feelings directly. Lotte owner Shin Dong-bin also opened his wallet at the beginning of the season when the team was on a nine-game winning streak. He gave hair dryers and wireless headsets to the players, coaching staff, trainers, interpreters, and training assistants. In June, he even prepared lunch boxes. SSG owner Jung Yong-jin is also known for his love of baseball. He personally visited the team’s first spring training camp in the U.S. before the start of the season and treated them to the finest lobster, prime rib, and LA ribs.
