After losing to Kiwoom yesterday (22nd) after another lethargic game, Samsung fell to the bottom of the table after losing three consecutive games and a poor record of 1 win and 8 losses in nine games.
It’s the first time in five years that Samsung has been in last place with more than 10 games played in a season.
The all-time winningest team, Samsung has never finished in last place since the league’s inception in 1982.
This season, however, the team has been on a downward spiral, with top hitters Koo Ja-rook and Oh Jae-il sidelined with injuries and poor performances, young prospects experiencing growing pains, and veteran bullpen pitchers like Oh Seung-hwan struggling.
Baseball isn’t Samsung’s only ‘last place’ sport.
Men’s basketball’s Seoul Samsung has finished last for the last two seasons in a row, and men’s volleyball’s perennial champions, the Samsung Fire, were last last season.
Even Suwon Samsung, a traditional favourite in the K League, is facing relegation this season, finishing last out of 12 clubs.
Coincidentally, the collapse of Samsung’s four men’s professional sports teams comes after the parent company that controls the clubs merged with Cheil Worldwide, and fans have been calling for an overhaul of the way the parent company runs the clubs.
