Justin Boer (35), who played for the LG Twins, ends his active career.
Bohr said on social media on the 11th (Korean time), “For every player, there comes a point where you know that ‘the time has come to end your career.’ Thank you,” he said. This is his retirement announcement.
Bohr, who was a ‘big shot’안전놀이터, started his professional career by being named to the Chicago Cubs in 2009. He debuted in the major leagues (MLB) as a member of the Miami Marlins in 2014 and played 559 games in the big leagues until the 2019 season. He is a hitter who showed off his slugging power with 92 home runs and a slugging percentage of 0.470. His MLB career record is a batting average of 0.253 with 92 home runs and 303 RBIs in 559 games.
Boer advanced to the Japanese league in 2020 and hit 17 homers as a member of the Hanshin Tigers. He played in the MLB San Francisco Giants minor league in 2021, and wore an LG uniform as a substitute player. LG, where a “former” big leaguer with a high name value joined, was expected to improve its long hitting power. However, Boer had a batting average of 0.170 (17 hits in 100 at-bats) with only 3 home runs in 32 games.
Boer played in the Mexican League last year, but this year he couldn’t find a place to play.
