“Voting 3 times a day, our fans are going strong, thanks All-Stars”

“They keep telling me that they vote three times a day, so I’m really grateful.”

Doosan Bears outfielder Yang Yang-ji (36) once again thanked the fans for making him an All-Star. Yang was named the Dream All-Star Catcher on the KBO’s “Best 12” All-Star list, which was announced on April 26. Yang topped the fan vote with 832,726 votes and the player vote with 152 votes, giving him a total of 37.50 points. He was well ahead of Yoo Kang-nam (Lotte), who finished second with 25.70 total points.

This is the seventh time Yang has been invited to the All-Star Game as a “Best 12” player. He was honored for six consecutive years from 2016 to 2021. In 2018, he was the top vote-getter. Last year, he was left out of the Best 12 by Kia’s Park Dong-won (now with LG), but this year he was recognized as the best catcher in the league after signing as a free agent with his hometown team Doosan. Doosan fans showed their appreciation with their All-Star votes for Yang, who rejected multiple offers to return to his hometown club with a six-year, 15.2 billion won contract.메이저사이트

The veteran of several All-Star Games seemed to feel extra special this time around. “I’m so grateful to the fans,” Yang said. They keep telling me how many times they vote, sometimes three times a day. Once again, I feel the passion and love of our fans is amazing. I think we have a good momentum,” he smiled.

Yang has been a force on the offensive side of the ball this season as the starting catcher and center fielder. In 65 games, he is batting .322 (69-for-214) with an OPS of .903, seven home runs and 35 RBIs, making him the only triple threat on the team. This is why Doosan fans tried to make sure that Yang would be at the top of the Dream All-Star’s “Lotte surge. There are seven Lotte players in the Dream All-Star Best 12.
