‘Incheon baseball’s living history’ Kim Dong-gi, Kim Gyeong-gi, and Jeong Min-tae (current Samsung Lions coach) will throw out the All-Star Game ceremonial first pitch along with SSG Landers’ franchise star Choi Jeong.

The three Incheon baseball heroes are scheduled to take the mound to open the 2024 Shinhan SOL Bank KBO All-Star Game, which will be held at Incheon SSG Landers Field on the 6th.

Kim Dong-gi and Kim Gyeong-gi were the key players who led the Pacific Dolphins’ central batting lineup to its heyday.

Kim Dong-gi set a record as the first catcher to start every game in the KBO League in 1989, and on October 8 of that year, he hit a walk-off three-run home run in the 14th inning of the first game of the semi-playoff against Samsung, leading the Incheon-based team to its first postseason win and its first playoff appearance.

Kim Gyeong-gi is the son of former Sammi Superstars manager Kim Jin-young, the ‘godfather of Incheon baseball’, and is a symbolic figure of Incheon baseball who only played for Incheon-based teams.

Kim Gyeong-gi and Kim Dong-gi also led the Pacific to its first Korean Series appearance in 1994.

Jeong Min-tae is the ace who led the Hyundai Unicorns dynasty, and has recorded over 200 innings and double-digit wins for five consecutive years since 1996.

Jeong Min-tae, who recorded 20 wins, 7 losses, 3 saves, and an ERA of 2.54 in 1999, remains the ‘last 20-win pitcher of the 20th century.’

Choi Jeong-eun, the symbol of 21st century Incheon baseball, recently surpassed Lee Seung-yeop (current Doosan Bears manager) to become the top player in this category for the most home runs in the KBO League.

The All-Star Game national anthem will be sung by singer Lee Chan-won, an avid baseball fan.
