How many trophies will Triple Crown super ace Eric Peddie (NC Dinos) take home after shaking up the KBO?
The KBO Awards Ceremony will be held on Nov. 27 at 2 p.m. in the Grand Ballroom of the Westin Chosun Hotel in Seoul. The MVP and Rookie of the Year will be announced for their best performances in the regular season, and the inaugural winners of the KBO Defensive Player of the Year Award will receive their trophies for the first time. There will also be awards for the top individual players in the KBO League and Futures League, as well as the best umpires.
To select the MVP and Rookie of the Year winners, the KBO held a preliminary online poll after the regular season ended for members of the Korea Baseball Writers Association and local media outlets.
A total of 16 players (SSG Seo Jin-yong, Choi Jeong, Kiwoom Hurado, Kim Hye-sung, LG Austin, Hong Chang-ki, KT Ko Young-pyo, Park Young-hyun, Cuevas, NC Pedi, Son Ah-seop, Samsung Buchanan, Koo Ja-rook, Doosan Alcantara, Jeong Soo-bin, and Hanwha Noh Shi-hwan) were nominated for the MVP award, including the first-place finishers in each individual category and players selected by the Korea Baseball Writers Association as eligible candidates.
A total of 10 players were nominated for the Rookie of the Year Award among those who met the criteria under Article 7 of the KBO Awards Rules.
For the KBO Defensive Award, which was introduced for the first time this year,
108 pitchers, 14 catchers, and 53 infielders were nominated. The KBO selected the nine inaugural winners, one for each position, based on defensive metrics (25%) and a 75% vote by the club’s voting panel (one manager, nine coaches, and one general manager). The winner of the Defense Award will receive a trophy and a cash prize of 2 million won.
The first-place player and best umpire in each KBO league division will receive a trophy and 3 million won, and the first-place player in each Future League division will receive a trophy and 1 million won.
NC’s Pedi finished with a 20-6 record, a 2.00 ERA, and 209 strikeouts to win the triple crown of wins, ERA, and strikeouts. 카지노사이트 He is only the fourth KBO pitcher to win the Triple Crown (1986 1989 1990 1991, four times), joining Ryu Hyun-jin (2006) and Yoon Seok-min (2011), and the first foreign pitcher ever. It was 37 years since Sun Dong-yeol (24 wins, 214 strikeouts) achieved the 20-win, 200-strikeout mark in 1986. He joins the ranks of legendary pitchers such as Jang Myung-bu (Sammi) in 1983, Choi Dong-won (Lotte) in 1984, Kim Si-jin (Samsung) in 1985 and Seon Dong-yeol (Haetae) in 1986.
Youngster Noh Si-hwan (Hanwha), who led the league in home runs and RBIs, is in contention for MVP, but Pedi will be tough to beat.
Pedi was also named the pitcher winner of the inaugural KBO Defense Award.
His defensive record was voted on by the club’s managers, so his defense was recognized by the experts. He was the perfect pitcher, throwing well and fielding well. Add to that his teammates creating instant photo ops when he hit a home run, his efforts to pitch in the postseason after being hit in the arm by a season-ending pitch, and his tears for his team when they were eliminated from the playoffs, and you have a man who resonated with fans.
Four trophies are a given. If he wins the MVP, he’ll have five. At this point, he’s likely to win the MVP.
Pedi flew in on the 26th to attend the ceremony. It is rare for a foreign player to attend the KBO awards ceremony, which is held long after the season ends. NC’s Eric Thames attended the 2015 ceremony and kissed the MVP trophy in person. Josh Lindblom of the Doosan Bears missed the KBO Awards when he was named MVP in 2019, but he did attend the Golden Globe Awards.
Meanwhile, the Rookie of the Year award was a two-way tie between Hanwha’s Moon Dong-ju and Kia’s Yoon Young-chul. Moon Dong-ju appeared in 23 games and pitched 118⅔ innings, posting an 8-8 record with a 3.72 ERA and 95 strikeouts. Due to the team’s self-management, he ended his official game appearance with LG Electronics on September 3 and only pitched in the Asian Games and APBC.
Yoon Young-chul pitched full-time this year despite being a rookie. He appeared in 25 games and threw 122⅔ innings, going 8-7 with a 4.04 ERA and 74 strikeouts.
This is Hanwha’s first Rookie of the Year in 17 years since Ryu Hyun-jin in 2006, and KIA’s first Rookie of the Year in two years since Lee Yi-ri.
