This is the first cheer I’ve heard in a while

“Pump It” by the Black Eyed Peas was playing in Jamsil Stadium. The LG fans screamed as if they were leaving the ballpark and chanted, “Parabarabarabarabam~ Parabarabarabam~” in unison.

Oh Ji-hwan, who was on the field, spread his arms out in front of him and started cheering for Lee Dae-hyung, the nostalgic “Supersonic,” by swaying from side to side like he was riding a motorcycle to the music. Lee Dae-hyung smiled shyly, and Oh Ji-hwan gave him a warm hug and presented the retired senior with a winning ceremony.

On June 6, the LG Twins celebrated in front of their home fans at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul after winning their first regular season title in 29 years. Despite being a weekday evening game, Jamsil Stadium was packed with fans and sold out. As expected, the atmosphere was electric. LG fans and players sang cheers in unison and performed the ceremony passionately. 

At one point, Oh Ji-hwan caught commentator Lee Dae-hyung as he was leaving the game. He congratulated him from inside the dugout and dragged him out onto the field. When Lee Dae-hyung walked out onto the field, the LG fans cheered, his entrance song started playing, and they began to chant in unison and cheer for the motorcycle. It was the first time in 10 years since Lee Dae-hyung left LG that a Lee Dae-hyung cheer was played in Jamsil Stadium.

Dae-hyung Lee, who donned the stripes in the second round of the 2003 rookie draft, was LG’s leadoff man for 11 years before leaving the team as a free agent in the winter of 2013. He was nicknamed “Supersonic” for his quick feet, as he led the league in stolen bases for four consecutive years. At the time, the Supersonic theme song was one of LG’s signature cheers. 메이저사이트

Oh Ji-hwan joined LG as the first pick in the 2009 rookie draft and has been sweating with Lee Dae-hyung for five years. Despite the seven-year age difference, the two players have been close since their rookie days. They were so close that they stuck together in season and off-season. As a rookie, Oh received many benefits from Lee Dae-hyung. Through Lee Dae-hyung’s introduction, he received equipment sponsorships and received a lot of comfort whenever he was struggling.

After Lee moved to KIA, Oh had ’53 DH‧LEE’ engraved on his spikes as a sign of respect, and he even played with Lee’s bat in games. The two had an extraordinary relationship beyond their years.

Their friendship continues to this day. The senior was proud to see his junior overcome adversity to become a championship captain. LG learned of the regular season title on the bus ride down to Busan on March 3 and arrived at Sajik Stadium in Busan on March 4. When the team arrived, commentator Lee Dae-hyung rushed to the dugout to congratulate Oh Ji-hwan. 

Oh then presented Lee with a championship ceremony in front of the Jamsil home fans. It was a glorious moment of friendship between LG’s championship captain Oh Ji-hwan and LG’s last stolen base king Lee Dae-hyung.
