The closer for the Lions, Oh Seung-hwan, played for the St. Louis Cardinals, Colorado Rockies, and Toronto Blue Jays before joining Team KBO with Lee.
The team has added several more notable players, along with baseball stars like NC Dinos pitcher Yang Eui-ji and Samsung catcher Kang Min-ho. Oh Jae-il of the Lions and Koo Chang-mo, a pitcher for the team. Team Korea will have a vast LG Twins contingent of eight players; four players each from the KT Wiz and Kia Tigers; and three from the pennant-winning SSG Landers. Each club sends 1-2 players to round up the roster.
