November 21, 2022, was the highlight of the 2022 Free Agency (FA) documentary as it was the catcher market. Following the departure of Kang Min-ho (Samsung), Lotte, who had been struggling with catchers for a long time, signed Yoo Kang-nam to a four-year, 8 billion won deal, and LG, who lost Yoo, signed Park Dong-won for a total of 6.5 billion won. In the blink of an eye, two teams, and even KIA, 보스토토 도메인 changed their starting catchers.
LG initially wanted to keep Yoo Kang-nam, but with Lotte leading the race for him, they realized it would be difficult to do so. From that point on, Park Dong-won was the player they thought of as an alternative. On the one hand, there was an internal judgment that “Park Dong-won’s ability is not inferior to that of Yoo Kang-nam.” At the Arizona spring training camp in February, LG’s coaching staff, including head coach Yeom Kyung-yup, expressed their confidence in this area.
