Cheers and applause for Lee at Curry’s home

The city’s attention is on Korean major leaguer Lee Jung-hoo, who joined the San Francisco Giants. Lee was in attendance at the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) Golden State Warriors home game at the Chase Center in San Francisco on Sunday (Nov. 17). On the same day, the Warriors faced the Brooklyn Nets and won 124-120.

Golden State is one of the NBA’s hottest teams this season, despite sitting in 11th place in the Western Conference. Most notably, they have Bay Area ties to the San Francisco Giants. These two popular San Francisco teams share a home stadium. 바카라사이트 Oracle Park, home of the Giants, and Chase Center, home of the Warriors, are within a 10-15 minute walk of each other.

Lee had his San Francisco induction ceremony with his parents at Oracle Park on June 16. He is currently in the U.S. and attended an NBA game with his agency on the 17th, a day after his induction ceremony.

The Warriors gave Lee a rousing welcome to San Francisco.

During the third quarter of the game, the stadium’s big screen showed Lee sitting in the stands. At the bottom of the video, an introduction read, “Giants outfielder Lee Jung-hoo. The crowd erupted in applause and cheers, and Lee, smiling and waving at the scoreboard, stood up and returned the favor.

It’s an indication of how welcomed San Francisco’s signing of Lee is in the region, especially since the team has been desperate and aggressive in its pursuit of “superstars,” including Aaron Judge last year and Shohei Ohtani this year. In the case of Jersey, Warriors’ NBA star Steph Curry personally met with the team to explain the advantages of playing professionally in San Francisco, but it was unsuccessful.

The same was true for Ohtani. Ohtani was rumored to have visited Oracle Park, and San Francisco actually offered a nearly identical deal to the LA Dodgers (10 years, $700 million) in a last-ditch effort to win him over. But it didn’t work. Buster Posey, a member of the ownership group and a former legendary player of the team, lamented the failure to sign Ohtani, saying, “The negative image of San Francisco, including drugs and crime, has grown, and players who have to relocate their families are hesitant to do so.”

In this situation, the ‘welcome’ atmosphere for Lee Jung-hoo is even greater because he signed a mega contract totaling $113 million (about 14.62 billion won) over six years. 바카라사이트 추천 The San Francisco Giants’ official social media accounts have been filled with photos and news of Lee for days.
