Chau-chan also threw out the ceremonial first pitch for the Samsung-SSG game at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu last month.

“A lot of players from the dynasty were missing, but (Oh) Seung-hwan’s brother is still active and most of the other players are coaches, so even though it’s been a while since I left (Samsung), I’m familiar with the place, so I didn’t talk about anything special, but just said hello,” Chowchan said before the game.

Chowchan emphasized that Samsung’s juniors should emulate “living legends” Oh Seung-hwan (pitcher) and Kang Min-ho (catcher).

“I think it will be very helpful to have seniors like Oh Seung-hwan and Kang Min-ho in the same team, who are textbook examples. I think if I follow them, I will grow into a good player, and if that happens, the harmony between the new and old members of the team will be good,” he said.
