On the 25th, KT delivered bouquets of flowers and wine along with congratulatory cards to the addresses of 11 rookies in the name of KT Sports President Lee Chang-ho. A KT official said, “Every year, we present bouquets of flowers and wine to rookies selected through the draft.” He then explained the meaning of the gift, saying, “It is to express gratitude for the hard work of my parents who silently supported me behind the scenes until I joined KT.”
The congratulatory card said, ‘I would like to express my deep respect and gratitude to my parents who took care of me so that I could grow into a great player. The message was written, ‘We sincerely welcome you to KT Wiz.’
KT exercised the 7th overall pick in the 2024 KBO rookie draft held at the Grand Ballroom of the Westin Chosun Hotel in Jung-gu, Seoul on the 14th and selected pitcher Won Sang-hyun (19, Busan High School) in the first round.
And on the 25th, a warm gift arrived at Won Sang-hyun’s house. Won Sang-hyun’s mother said through the KT club, “I am truly honored and grateful just to be nominated by a strong team called KT Wiz. When I went home from work, I was really touched to see a flower basket and wine sent by the boss. Once again, I am very touched by the club.” “I am grateful, and I hope that all the players nominated this time, including my son, will become players who lead the team in the future.”
KT has a beautiful tradition of giving gifts to new players and their parents every year to express their gratitude. Earlier, at the rookie draft site, Won Sang-hyun and Yuk Cheong-myeong (18, Gangneung High School), who were selected in the second round, signed the club logo ball and presented it to his parents. After being nominated, the first meaningful signed ball as a professional player was given to my parents as a gift.
KT has been holding an event like this for 6 years since the 2018 rookie draft. KT said, “I would like to express my gratitude to my parents who were by my side, supported me financially and supported me until I became a professional athlete, and hope that I will not forget my family, ‘original intention’ and ‘ambition’ when I was nominated as a professional athlete. It is being carried out in. In addition, to celebrate the player’s nomination and increase the sense of belonging to the club, we engraved ‘ROOKIE’ on the uniform to increase the excitement, joy, and sense of professionalism at the time of nomination,” he emphasized.
At the time, Won Sang-hyun said, “It was nice to be able to share the story that was in my heart with my mother at the first autograph ball gift event prepared by the club. I was moved to tears, but now I will remember this feeling and do my best to keep my resolve while living professionally.” I conveyed my sincerity.
In addition, a Korean beef set was presented to the parents of 13 players who participated in the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games under KT Sports to express their gratitude for raising proud national team players.
