SSG Choo Shin-soo and Choi Jung helped Kim Kwang-hyun’s heart continue to move. Kim Kwang-hyun said, “SSG did not perform very well while in the U.S. He said, “We can do well only when you come,” and talked about baseball a lot. As expected, the biggest topic of conversation over the past two years was COVID-19. We talked about it a lot,” he said.
Kim Kwang-hyun said at a press conference, “I actually suffered a lot inside. “I’m sorry that I couldn’t interview properly because the team wasn’t decided,” he said.
Kim Kwang-hyun’s heart moved when SSG general manager Ryu Sun-kyu said, “I need you.” I felt SSG’s sincerity, and Kim Kwang-hyun was willing to hold SSG’s hand. Kim Kwang-hyun said, “I was disappointed to stay in the Major League, but it was an instant to fold.”
Kim Kwang-hyun said, “SSG fans cheered a lot, and thanks to fans, I went to the U.S. I think I really had an unforgettable big experience. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you. I wonder how I can return that love. I will try my best to return the contract for 4 years. The same goes for me, the front desk, and the players. The players have one goal. I’ll lead the team to win. “I want to do the winning interview again,” he said.
SSG announced a four-year, 15.1 billion won contract with Kim Kwang-hyun on the 8th. It is the highest amount of contract in FA and non-FA history.
Meanwhile, Kim Kwang-hyun will take the mound as an intermediate pitcher in the sixth inning of an exhibition game against LG at Incheon SSG Landance Field on the 22nd and throw 40 pitches.
