A 2-minute video is also introduced… Uniforms with the initials of “already a famous player” are also popular.

“Jung Hoo-ri is a very famous and great player here.

Expectations are high for his performance this season.


American professional baseball Major League Baseball (MLB) Lee Jeong-hoo (25, San Francisco Giants) made his first ‘appearance’ at his home stadium, Oracle Park, on the 5th (local time), receiving an enthusiastic welcome from the audience.

On this day, the San Francisco Giants’ home opening game of the season was held at Oracle Park in San Francisco, California, against the San Diego Padres, to which Ha-seong Kim (28) belongs.

The San Francisco Giants have played against the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers since the 28th of last month, but all were away games.

Oracle Park, which is considered one of the most beautiful baseball stadiums in the world as it has the sea behind the outfield seats, was packed with spectators both inside and outside as it was the opening game. Orange waves, the symbolic color of the San Francisco Giants, were visible on both the first and third base stands.

This is the first time Lee Jung-hoo stands in front of the home crowd since joining the San Francisco Giants in December last year.

Lee Jeong-hoo, who appeared on the ground after being introduced by announcer John Miller before the game, received a warm welcome from the crowd.

Fireworks also exploded.

The crowd gave a standing ovation and chanted “Jung-hoo Lee,” and Lee Jeong-hoo ran out of the dugout and greeted the home crowd for the first time.

Also, prior to the game, Lee Jeong-hoo, who was making his first appearance, was introduced to the home fans on a large electronic display board.

The two-minute video included scenes from Lee Jung-hoo’s induction ceremony in December of last year, media interviews, and his father, former LG Twins coach Jong-beom Lee.

Unlike the game held at Petco Park in San Diego, fans wearing Lee Jeong-hoo’s uniform were visible everywhere in the baseball stadium that day.

Among them were not only Korean fans but also locals.

Jeff, a long-time fan of the San Francisco Giants, said, “Lee Jung-hoo is already famous in San Francisco,” and added, “He is an outstanding player and was the MVP in Korea.”

“I think Lee Jung-hoo is worth more than 100 billion won,” he said. “I have high expectations for his performance this season.”

Two hours before the game started, the uniform store at Oracle Park was already filled with fans.

Lee Jeong-hoo’s uniform was already popular in the player-specific uniform section of the store.

Mr. Jin, who is Asian and was born here, held up a uniform with ‘Jung Hoo Lee’ written on it and boasted, “I know Lee Jeong Hoo well, and I know very well that my father was a great player.”

Min-kwan Kim, who came as an exchange student at San Francisco State University, said, “I’m going to watch the game tomorrow, but I came here to buy the uniform because I was afraid it would run out early.” He added, “I plan to come see Jeong-hoo Lee about five times before I return to Korea.”
