The super ace left in tears. He returned to Korea with the MVP trophy and a smile on his face.

NC Eric Peddie, who evaluated the KBO League, visited the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO Awards Ceremony held at the Grand Ballroom of the Westin Chosun Hotel in Seoul on July 27.

It’s unusual for a foreign player to return to Korea after the season to attend an award ceremony.

Pedi was in the spotlight for his outstanding performance this season.

In 30 regular-season games, Pedi went 20-6 with a 2.00 ERA (40 earned runs in 180⅓ innings) and 209 strikeouts. He led the league in wins, ERA, and strikeouts.토토사이트

He was also the inaugural winner of the KBO Defensive Player of the Year Award for pitchers.

The MVP award, of course, was his. He received an overwhelming 102 out of 111 votes from journalists. That’s 91.9 percent of the vote.
