Lee Jung-hoo (25), one of the best hitters in the KBO League, has left for the Major League.

Having played seven seasons in the KBO until this season, Lee has qualified for posting and decided to settle in San Francisco after negotiations.

The total amount of his contract is 113 million U.S. dollars for six years, which is much better than expected.

The news of Lee Jung-hoo’s transfer is welcome from the standpoint of the other nine teams except Kiwoom.

He will do the same because Lee Jung-hoo has been the most difficult hitter in the league for the past seven years.

Lee Jung-hoo, who won the Rookie of the Year with a batting average of 0.324 with two home runs and 47 RBIs in 2017, the first year since his debut, lacked slugging power, but made all teams’ batteries difficult with his elaborate batting sense and excellent pioneering eyes.

One of the hottest topics in Las Vegas sports books, the NFL season was college football game night.

To be sure, beating Notre Dame in Michigan was an instant classic.

But about two hours after Utah and Southern California ended, the score change caused a lot of confusion.

The game ended in a 17-14 victory for the Trojans.

But around 10 p.m., the Pacific-12 Conference announced it was overwhelming game officials who refused to allow USC’s Torin Harris to touch down after a field goal attempt was blocked.

When Harris, a redshirt sophomore at Palo Verde High School, was speeding toward the end zone, some Trojans ran onto the field to celebrate, leading to penalties for unathletic behavior to negate the score.

However, the Pac-12 announced that it should have been enforced as a dead-ball foul, changing the final score to 23-14

The Winner of the '3-Point Battle Between Men and Women' of the Century is Curry... Lonescu Wins by 3 Points

Lillard beats Young and others to win the NBA 3-point contest for the second straight time

Stephen Curry, the star of the Golden State Warriors, smiled during the three-point match of the century in men's and women's professional basketball held during the National Basketball Association (NBA) All-Star Game.

Curry defeated Sabrina Ionescu of the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) in a special three-point contest on the eve of the 2023-2024 NBA All-Star Game held at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA on the 18th (Korean time). https://start.me/w/RDoN4D

Curry, who won the 2015 and 2021 All-Star Game 3-point contests, is considered the world's best shooter in name and reality, but did not participate in this All-Star Game.

Instead, he participated in the men's and women's match with Ionescu held immediately after the 3-point contest and scored 29 points out of a total of 40 points.

Curry attempted 599 3-point shots this season and succeeded 252 times, recording a success rate of 42.1%.

Ionescu, who shot before Curry, scored 26 points.

26 points is the same as the record of Damian Lillard (Milwaukee), the winner of this season's 3-point contest.

However, Ionescu attempted the shot with a WNBA official ball, not the NBA.

The 3-point distance was thrown at a distance of 7.24m (from the front) from the rim according to the NBA.

New York Liberty's Ionescu, known as the 'female Curry', recorded a 44.8% 3-point success rate last season. https://zenwriting.net/90i...

In 2023, she won the WNBA 3-Point Contest, where she won a whopping 37 out of 40 points.

Ionescu, who unfortunately could not overcome Stephen Curry's barrier, said, "I hope this isn't the last time we face each other."

In the 3-point contest, Milwaukee Bucks guard Lillard succeeded in his second consecutive victory.

Jason Kapono, who won back-to-back titles in 2007 and 2008, is the last person to win two titles in a row before Lillard.

In Spring and Fall… Gen.G Lost Again to China’s BLG

Gen.G Esports, the number one seed in Korea's League of Legends professional league LCK, collapsed.

In the quarterfinals of the 2023 League of Legends World Championship (Worlds Cup) held at Sajik Indoor Gymnasium in Dongrae-gu, Busan on the 3rd.

Gen.G had a close match that went all the way to 5 sets against Bilibili Gaming (BLG), the second seed in the Chinese league, but ultimately lost.

The Gen.G players, who played for the first time in two weeks, lost two sets, but as their sense of real-world play improved, they gradually showed performance worthy of being the 'first king of the LCK.'

Although they lost the first and second sets in a row in a tense early game, they won the third set after a fierce battle that lasted more than 46 minutes, setting the stage for their pursuit.

He won the 4th set and brought the game back to square one.

However, he lost 5 sets and his World World Cup journey came to a halt.

Following the 2023 MSI (Mid-Season Invitational) last May, Gen.G lost to BLG at another important moment, reaffirming their status as a 'natural enemy'.

In sets 1 and 2, Gen.G had been devising a 'meta destruction method' for two weeks, but it was painful that it didn't work.

In the 1st and 2nd set ban picks, Gen.G gave the opponent Rumble, Jarvan, Orianna, and Xayah, which are currently considered meta picks in the Swiss stage and quarterfinals.

Instead, he picked Aphelios and Azir and came up with a strategy to counter them.

However, this counter pick did not work and they lost two sets in a row.

In the 3rd set, Gen.G made a quick revision and came up with a revised ban pick.

In the 3rd set, Gen.G banned many ADC champions.

I closed Xayah, Aphelios, and Kalista and took out Kai'Sa.

In mid-game, Chovy's carry power was strengthened by using Yone instead of Azir.

The 4th set also presented the same answer sheet. Gen.G banned Xayah, Aphelios, and Caitlyn and brought out Kalista.

In mid-game, he chose Akali instead of Yone, who was banned, giving Chovy another carry champion.

The result was a success. Unlike BLG's mid and ranged dealers, who lost strength due to the changed ban picks, Gen.G's Jeong "Chovy" Ji-hoon and Kim "Phase" Soo-hwan played well and won every important team fight.

The fantastic initiating performances of the relaxed ‘Delight’ Hwan-jung Yoo and Han ‘Peanut’ Wang-ho also contributed greatly to the team’s victory.

Hyundai Capital's Kim Seon-ho, Returned to the Starting Lineup After 5 Months, said, "I Believe I will get a Chance"

Appeared as a starter for the first time in 138 days since the Korea Electric Power Game on October 26 last year.

For Hyundai Capital outside hitter Kim Seon-ho (25), who played for the Korean men's national volleyball team, the 2023-2024 season was a series of trials.

After repeated poor performance at the beginning of the season, he was pushed to the bench, and even then his opportunities to play gradually decreased.

The Woori Card match held at the Yu Gwan-sun Gymnasium in Cheonan on the 12th was an opportunity for Kim Seon-ho to soar again.

Kim Seon-ho returned to the starting lineup 138 days after the Korea Electric Power Game on October 26 last year and led the team to a 3-1 victory with 12 points and an attack success rate of 57.89%.

On this day, Hyundai Capital was in a position to be eliminated from the spring volleyball competition if it lost to Woori Card.

Kim Seon-ho, who seemed to have been pushed out as an 'ugly duckling', flew like a swan and showed off his skills to his heart's content for the first time in a long time.

This is the first time this season that he has scored double digits in a game.

The reason Kim Seon-ho was able to play as a starter was because main gunner Jeon Gwang-in injured his back during training.

Seon-ho Kim said, “Before leaving the stadium, acting coach (Jin Soon-ki) called me and said, ‘I’m going to start as a starter.’

Actually, I was nervous as soon as I heard that, but it was good when I actually entered the court,” he said with a bright smile.

He continued, “I was nervous at the beginning of the game, but with my brothers leading me well from behind, I relaxed.

“I thought it was a must-win game today, and the factor in winning was that I didn’t think about anything else and just thought about winning
