Overview

In this book, Lee Seung-yeop, the home-run king of our generation, tells the story of his life.

Book Intro

Professional baseball player Lee Seung-yeop joined the Samsung Lions after high school and achieved records for home runs, singles, doubles, RBIs, and slugging average in the KBO League. He then played for eight years in the NPB in Japan, returned to Korea for a career revival, and declared retirement at the top of his game. Through his book Number 36, Lee Seung-Yuop, Lee offers readers a glimpse into his unseen efforts and pain, the thought processes behind his many choices, the attitudes and people who influenced him as a person, and stories of suffering and overcoming fear.

Lee fell in love with baseball at a very young age, and nothing could sway his love for the game. He was given tough love by a strict father, but he never gave up baseball, going so far as to declare hunger strikes to continue playing. There's a common misconception that Lee never faced failure. This couldn’t be further from the truth, however. His failures helped him better understand the thoughts of other players, and they were also a chance to quell his own arrogance.

Although Lee's achievements can be attributed to his own choices and stubbornness, he confesses that they were made possible due to the many people who believed in, defended, and helped him. Lee's family was his primary support. His father taught him to be a person rather than just a baseball player; his mother gave him unconditional love; his wife was the rock who helped him overcome struggles; and his children's sense of pride pushed him along, despite the difficulties of being the children of a celebrity father. What's more, Lee credits his coaches, teammates, fellow players, and even rivals with helping him become the player that he became. Fittingly, this book is divided into nine chapters. The tenth chapter – the extra inning – offers Lee’s unique baseball lessons. It includes tips on the many variables a hitter has to calculate when facing off against a pitcher.

About the Author

Lee Seung-yeop



Lee Seung-yeop was born in 1976 in Daegu. After only 3 years since becoming a professional baseball player in 1995, Lee won the MVP award for the regular season. Lee was also the best player in 5 seasons: 1999, 2001, 2002, and 2003. In 2004, Lee went overseas and started playing in Japan’s Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB). After returning to the Samsung Lions of Korea in 2012, Lee felt the joy of winning a championship 3 times. Lee Seung-yeop is an exceptional case as a professional player due to having announced a time for his own retirement and having his first retirement tour in the Korean Baseball League. As the second chapter of his baseball life, Lee is planning to undertake various activities in different positions, including as a KBO honorary ambassador and the founder of Lee Seung-yeop Baseball Scholarship Foundation.
