‘Victory Fairy’ Chairman Kim Seung-yeon had a truly special love for baseball

When the club owner comes, there is a walk-off victory.

The Hanwha Eagles achieved a thrilling victory from a crisis and laid the foundation for a rebound. The joy grew even greater because it happened to be the day that Hanwha Group Chairman Kim Seung-yeon had an ‘intuitive insight’.

Hanwha came from behind to win 5-4 in the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO League home game against Kiwoom held at Daejeon Hanwha Life Eagles Park on the 10th. Hanwha, which was in 9th place without a win against last-place Lotte, escaped from a swamp of 3 consecutive losses and rose to a tie for 8th place with Kiwoom, as it lost both of its away games to the Lotte Giants in two games during the week.

The main player in the victory was foreign hitter Peraza. Peraza started a full-fledged one-man show in the bottom of the 8th inning when Hanwha was down 3-4. Peraza, who started as the leadoff hitter, kept the spark of victory alive by hitting a left-handed hit against Kiwoom’s fourth pitcher Kim Jae-woong.

Peraza took advantage of a wild pitch during Noh Si-hwan’s at-bat to steal second base, and boldly drove home during Moon Hyun-bin’s timely hit to right to tie the game. Hanwha, which had achieved balance, took advantage of the opportunity by bringing in closing pitcher Joo Hyun-sang and holding the defense scoreless in the 9th and 10th innings. In the end, home run leader Peraza hit a shot.
In the bottom of the 10th inning, Peraza attacked Kim Dong-hyuk with a ball count of 2 balls and 1 strike, and hit a 139 km/h fastball centered in the middle, hitting a 125m goodbye home run over the right wall. On this day, Peraza performed well with 3 hits in 5 at bats, including a walk-off home run, 1 walk, 1 RBI, and 2 runs.

On this day, Hanwha attracted a crowd of 10,000 won for its 17th home game this season. In addition, Hanwha Group Chairman Kim Seung-yeon visited the field with about 500 executives and employees to give strength to the Hanwha players who were struggling to escape the crisis, and Peraza’s walk-off home run hit, allowing them to return home in good spirits. In fact, Chairman Kim smiled brightly when victory was confirmed.

Chairman Kim visited Hanwha Life Eagles Park twice this year. What is interesting is that Hanwha was on a winning streak and achieved a walk-off victory against KT in March, when the atmosphere was good.

At the time, the game was the home opener, and it was nothing short of a perfect game for Hanwha. On this day, the aces of both teams, KT William Cuevas and Hanwha Ryu Hyun-jin, faced each other and a tense pitching battle ensued. Even after Cuevas and Ryu Hyun-jin went down, KT Lee Sang-dong and Hanwha Han Seung-hyuk and Joo Hyun-sang played well, maintaining a 2-2 balance. Hanwha split the game in the last attack. .

This time too, Peraza created an opportunity by hitting a double to left, and Noh Si-hwan got on base with an automatic intentional fourth pitch, creating a situation where runners were on 1st and 2nd with 2 outs. Lim Jong-chan, who had been hitting hard at the beginning of the season, hit Lee Sang-dong’s first pitch forkball and hit a clean double to left-center, ending the game.
