The Seoul Twins and LG Twins have won their first regular season title in 29 years, and are now heading to KS.
LG Twins, Seoul’s most popular franchise, has won its first regular season title in 29 years.
LG clinched the top spot in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League on Wednesday, regardless of the outcome of the rest of the season’s games, as second-place KT Wiz and third-place NC Dinos lost side-by-side.
Going into the day off with no games, LG has 82 wins, 51 losses, and two ties for a winning percentage of 0.617.
Even if they lose all nine of their remaining games, their final winning percentage will be 0.577.
KT (74 wins, 60 losses, 3 draws, 0.552 winning percentage), with 7 games left, will have a final winning percentage of 0.574 even if they win all of their games.
NC (70 wins, 61 losses, 2 draws, 0.534 winning percentage), which has 11 games left, will only have a winning percentage of 0.570 even if it wins all of its remaining games.
As a result, LG has clinched the title with more than 10 days to go in the regular season and will begin preparations for the Korean Series (KS).
Since 1989, when the KBO was a single-player league, the first-place team in the regular season (excluding 1999 and 2000, when the league was a double-header) has won the Korean Series 27 of 32 times, an 84.4 percent chance of winning.
This is the third time in the team’s history that LG, which acquired MBC Cheongryong in 1990, has won the regular season title.
The team was at its peak in its first years, winning the regular season and Korean Series titles in 1990 and 1994.
However, LG fell into a long slump, finishing runner-up in the 2002 fall baseball season and failing to reach the Korean Series.
In recent years, the team has scouted and nurtured young players and signed a number of free agents from its well-resourced Seoul connections, but has been knocked out in the first round of the Fall League for four consecutive years.
But this year was different.
LG, already considered the favorite before the season, was on the radar of the other teams’ managers at the media day just before opening day.
With the thickest roster of the 10 teams, LG was in a fierce battle for the lead with defending champions SSG Landers from the start of the season.
On June 27, 온라인카지노 when the heatwave began, the team moved into sole possession of first place and never relinquished the lead, cruising to a comfortable regular season victory.
