“I want a Rolex watch” LG Twins captain Oh Ji-hwan, who usually gives up everything to his juniors, had no intention of giving up a Rolex watch for the Korean Series MVP.
In Game 1 of the Korean Series, LG’s Oh committed two errors that cost them the game. In the top of the ninth inning, with the score tied at 2-2, KT’s Moon Sang-chul hit a pitch that hit the top of the left field fence. In the replay between left fielder Moon Sung-joo, shortstop Oh Ji-hwan, and catcher Park Dong-won, Oh’s throw to home plate went wide of the mark. The runner from first base scored and pinch-hitter Moon Sang-chul advanced to third base, giving LG the lead with one out.
In a situation where it was impossible to catch the runner on first base, Oh Ji-hwan’s throw was inaccurate due to too much force in his shoulder. The record is an error. After giving up two runs in the top of the ninth inning, LG was unable to rally in the bottom of the ninth and dropped game one to KT.
At the Korean Series media day, Oh revealed his greed for the Rolex watch awarded to the MVP. LG fans have been wondering who will become the owner of the LG Twins’ Korean Series MVP Rolex watch, which has been in a safe for 26 years without an owner.
Former LG Group Chairman Koo Bon-moo, who passed away in 2018, prepared a special watch after winning the Korean Series in 1994, promising to present a Rolex watch worth 100 million won to the next Korean Series MVP player in 1997, but the owner has yet to show up. The watch has been sitting in the vault of the LG Twins baseball team for 26 years.
At the media day, when asked which player he would like to give the Rolex watch to in his captain’s capacity as the Korean Series MVP, Oh said, “I’m sure the MVP would love to get it, but I just want it for me. Even if they give it to me on my own authority, I want to give it to me,” he replied, revealing his greed for the Korean Series MVP Rolex watch. 토토사이트
To win the watch, he would have to win the Korean Series and be named the series MVP. In Game 1, Oh went 1-for-4 on offense and made two errors on defense.
In Game 2, Oh was a 180-degree turnaround from Game 1. Trailing 4-1 in the sixth inning, he hit a solo shot off KT starter Cuevas to keep the game alive. His defense was impeccable, not allowing a single run after a four-run first inning.
Oh really came into his own in the eighth inning. With the score 4-3 and one run down, Oh batted leadoff and drew a four-pitch walk against KT’s Park Young-hyun at 0B 2S. After drawing a walk, Oh pumped his fist in the air. With the tying run on base, Yeom Kyung-yup called for a sacrifice bunt with Moon Bo-kyung at bat to put runners in scoring position on first and second.
