Dodgers’ 61st player is Park Chan-ho and Ryu Hyun-jin.
Park Chan-ho (47) and Ryu Hyun-jin (33) have been selected to represent the Los Angeles Dodgers’ back numbers 61 and 99.
MLB dotcom announced on the 29th (Korean time) that it has selected the best players by team. Two Korean players were named for the Dodgers. MLB dotcom introduced Park Chan-ho as the first Korean player to open the MLB door. Park Chan-ho, who made his big league debut with the Dodgers in 1994, pitched in 275 games during his nine-year stint with the Dodgers and played with a 3.77 ERA with 84 wins, 58 losses and two saves. Park also posted 124 wins (98 losses) to hold the record for most wins by an Asian MLB pitcher 토토사이트
Ryu Hyun-jin was considered a representative player of the Dodgers who started his big league career and his current team Toronto Blue Jays. “Left-hander Ryu Hyun-jin from South Korea easily won the game,” MLB said. Ryu Hyun-jin pitched well with 54 wins, 33 losses and a 2.98 ERA in his Dodgers uniform from 2013 to 2019. MLB dotcom added, “I can’t forget Manny Ramirez, who played for the Dodgers 99 times in three seasons,” but chose Ryu Hyun-jin, who played for a long time with the Dodgers, as the representative player of the 99th.
Ryu Hyun-jin was the “best 99” in Toronto, where there was no disagreement. “The most famous player in Canada is Wayne Gretzky of the North American Ice Hockey (NHL),” MLB dotcom said. Ryu signed a four-year contract with Toronto 99 times ahead of the 2020 season. In his first season, Ryu Hyun-jin played with a 2.69 ERA (five wins and three losses), and he was also a Cy Young Award candidate (third place in the American League vote).”
