[인사이트] Reporter Park Sang-woo = Former baseball player Park Chan-ho visited the late Samsung Electronics Chairman Lee Kun-hee and condolences.
On this day, too, Park Chan-ho expressed his gratitude for Chairman Lee by showing the appearance of’Tomorch Talker’.
On the 27th, Park Chan-ho had a time to visit the funeral hall of Samsung Medical Center, where Lee was enshrined, and to commemorate it.
Park Chan-ho, who appeared wearing a mask on her shaggy hair, met the reporters and made a memorial remark.
Park Chan-ho explained that he did not have a direct relationship with Chairman Lee, but he had a close relationship with Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong and the deceased’s son-in-law.
Park Chan-ho said, “We came to comfort Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong and son-in-law Kim Jae-yeol, president of Samsung Economic Research Institute.
In the meantime, Park Chan-ho revived his life by telling the story of the Los Angeles Dodgers, where he was in the past.
He replied, “I couldn’t see the chairman in person, but I remember boasting to local players that the computer monitor was Samsung at the LA Dodgers from the early days of entering the US.”
He added, “Peter O’Malley, the former Dodgers owner, gave me his best regards.”
Chairman Lee is known to have a special love for baseball while serving as the owner of the Samsung Lions from 1982 to 2001.
In October 1982, he met Peter O’Malley, then owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and was promised a technical alliance. From 1985, he began sending Samsung Lions to the US Spring Camp as the first member of the KBO league team.
Meanwhile, Chairman Lee’s ceremony was held from 7:30 am on the 28th. Since Samsung is the family leader, the ceremony was simply held privately.
