 2019 KBO League MVP Josh Lindblom, who played for the Lotte Giants and Doosan Bears, announced his retirement. 

Lindblom said on his social media on the 13th (Korean time), “A close friend asked me before last season, ‘What is it like to finish well?’ I have been asking myself this question every morning for the past 7 months.” I got the answer that it is to live to the best of my ability with the thought that it is the last time.”  카지노사이트

“Over the past 30 years, baseball has taught me more than wins and losses and strike-balls and hits. It has taught me life and made me who is writing this letter,” he said of his intention to retire. 

Lindblom, who started his professional career with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2008, transferred to Lotte in 2015 and embroidered the KBO League stage for a total of five seasons, including Doosan days (2018, 2019). In particular, in 2019, he was selected as the KBO League MVP along with the team’s championship with an excellent record of 20 wins and 3 losses with an earned run average of 2.50. 

After returning to the United States, Lindblom signed a three-year, $9.125 million contract with Milwaukee to return to the big leagues. However, in 2020, his first year after his return, he was sluggish with 2 wins and 4 losses with an ERA of 5.16, and in 2021 he was strengthened to the minor leagues. In the 2022 season, he went 9-7 with a 4.05 earned run average in Triple-A, but had no big league opportunities. 

Eventually, Lindblom announced his retirement after his contract with Milwaukee was terminated after the 2022 season. Lindblom said, “I want to thank everyone who has influenced the game of baseball I love. Whether it’s my family, friends, teammates, coaches, front desk, food and beverage salesmen, groundskeepers, journalists, fans or kids, this letter is for you. After saying, “(As a baseball player), I may have done everything, but I am not finished yet.”
