Lee Jung-hoo (23) of the professional baseball team’s Raised Heroes has hit the highest annual salary in his fifth year.
According to the status of the club contract announced by Kiwoom on the 12th, Lee Jung-hoo signed a contract for 550 million won, a 41% increase from last year’s annual salary of 390 million won. This exceeded the highest annual salary of 322 million won in the fifth year recorded by Kim Ha-seong (San Diego Padres). Lee Jung-hoo has an annual salary of 230 million won in 2019 and 390 million won last year, and holds the highest annual salary records in the third and fourth years respectively.
Lee Jung-hoo, who played an active part in last year’s 140 games with a batting average of 0.333, 15 homers, 101 RBIs, and 85 points, won the Golden Gloves for his third personal outfielder after the season ended. “I am grateful to the club for providing good conditions every year,” Lee Jung-hoo said, saying, “I am concentrating only on sports because I have a satisfactory contract.” He said, “I feel a lot of responsibility as I signed a high-priced contract,” and said, “I will try hard until the end of this season to meet the expectations of fans and clubs.” He added, “(Kim) Ha Sung-hyung will be able to fill the vacancy from me,” he added. “This season’s goal is unchanged as the team wins. I will do my best to help the team win.”
Park Byeong-ho, who was sluggish due to injury last year, signed a $1.5 billion mark, which was reduced by 500 million won (25%) from 2 billion won. It was cut, but it is still a’salary king’ within the team. Among pitchers, Yang Hyun signed 120 million won, and Kim Tae-hoon and Lee Seung-ho each signed 100 million won, making it the first time since their professional debut. Among the beasts, Park Jun-tae, Jeon Byeong-woo, and Heo Jeong-hyup recorded an increase of more than 100%. Park Joon-tae, who received his first billion-dollar salary for his debut, signed a contract for 110 million won, up 144.4% from last year, recording the highest rate of increase in the team. Byeong-woo Jeon stamped 60 million won, a 106.9 percent increase, and Jeonghyup Heo 100 percent, 70 million won.
