It’s not just his former team, the Kiwoom Heroes, who have a lot to smile about with Lee Jung-hoo (San Francisco) making it to the major leagues.
Former LG Twins coach Lee Jong-beom, who made a fortune in child farming, also can’t hide his smile.
In addition, Ko Woo-seok signed a contract with San Diego, giving his son and son-in-law the double whammy of reaching the major leagues.
KBO legend Lee Jong-beom, who was known as the “Son of the Wind”
for his quick feet and precise hitting during his playing days, is married to Jung Yeon-hee and they have one son and one daughter.
Lee Jong-bum’s son is Lee Jung-hoo, who signed a six-year, $113 million contract with San Francisco last month.
After inheriting his father’s blood and becoming one of the best hitters in the KBO,
Lee tried to reach the major leagues after the 2023 season, and eventually realized his dream by landing in San Francisco’s arms. 토토
Especially since his father was known as the “Son of the Wind” during his playing days, Lee’s nickname naturally became the “Grandson of the Wind.”
Lee even explained his nickname to local reporters at his signing press conference in San Francisco.
Following Lee, his son-in-law Go Woo-seok signed a 2+1 year contract with San Diego on April 4 for a total of $4.5 million (approximately 5.9 billion won).
Go Woo-seok tied the knot with Lee Ga-hyun, the daughter of former coach Lee Jong-beom and brother of Lee’s friend Lee Jung-hoo,
in January of last year, giving him a KBO legend as his father-in-law.
Coincidentally, Lee and Go will face each other 13 times in 2024 as their teams are both in the National League West.
The first game will take place at Petco Park in San Diego from March 29-April 1, and there’s a chance that Go Woo-seok could go two-for-two with Lee,
who is San Francisco’s starting center fielder, during the four-game series.
Of course, for now, he’s smiling at the prospect of his son and son-in-law making it to the major leagues together,
but once the season actually starts, former coach Lee Jong-beom’s head will be spinning.
