700 million won → 50 million won, 93% reduction rate, the largest ever in KBO… Park Myung-hwan and Lee Taek-geun’s record was broken

NC veteran infielder Park Seok-min (38) wrote a disgraceful record for the largest annual salary reduction rate in the history of the KBO League. 

On the 27th, NC announced the completion of the 2023 season salary contract with 62 candidates for renewal. According to this, Park Seok-min’s annual salary was cut by a whopping 650 million won from 700 million won last year to 50 million won this year. The reduction rate of 92.9% is the highest ever in the KBO league. 

The previous record was 90%, held by two players. In 2011, LG pitcher Park Myung-hwan and Kiwoom outfielder Lee Taek-geun in 2020 recorded a 90% reduction rate side by side with 450 million won cut from 500 million won the previous year to 50 million won. 

Park Seok-min signed a FA contract with NC in January 2020 for up to 3.4 billion won for 2+1 years. He received an annual salary of 700 million won last year as the last year of his free agent contract. However, in the summer of 2020, he caused a big stir as the instigator of the Sulfan scandal for violating the Corona 19 quarantine rules. 

While causing his social impact, he was suspended for 72 games by the KBO and 50 games by the club itself. It was only in June of last year that a total of 122 game suspension was lifted and he returned to the ground, but he could not overcome the one-year blank.  카지노사이트

He had a batting average of 1.1 4.9 Lee (7-for-47) with no home runs and two RBIs in 16 games with the first team. After being excluded from the first team due to back pain at the end of July, he did not come up until the end of the season, and rumors of his retirement naturally flowed out. 

However, NC, where third baseman resources such as Noh Jin-hyeok (Lotte) and Park Joon-young (Doosan) escaped, reached out to Park Seok-min once again. Park Seok-min also accepted a 93% salary cut with the attitude of Baek Ui-jong, and competes with juniors such as Seo Ho-cheol and Do Tae-hoon as a candidate for the starting third baseman in the new season.
