Lee Dae-Ho (Hangul: 이대호, Hanja: 李大浩) (born June 21, 1982 in Busan, South Korea) is primarily a first baseman who plays for the Lotte Giants in Korea Baseball Organization. He bats and throws right-handed. According to a Gallup Korea's survey conducted in 2011, Lee was chosen as the most popular player in the Korea Baseball Organization league.[1]


Amateur career

Lee attended Kyungnam High School in Busan, South Korea. At Kyungnam High School, Lee batted fourth and could throw in the 90s as a pitcher. In 2000, he was selected for the South Korean Junior National Team as a pitcher. The team won the 2000 World Junior Baseball Championship in Edmonton, Canada, and Lee led the attack alongside Kim Tae-Kyun, Choo Shin-Soo (the eventual MVP of this event) and Jeong Keun-Woo as a cleanup hitter by racking up 3 home runs. He also finished runner-up behind Joe Mauer of Team USA in batting average (.500).

Professional career

Lee joined Lotte Giants as a pitcher in 2001. But following an injury, he changed to a position player for the second half of 2001 season.

He won the Triple Crown in 2006, claiming the league lead in batting average, home runs, and RBI.

In 2008, he was a member of the Korean team that won the gold medal at the Beijing Olympic 2008, while he had an average of .360 (9-for-36), 3 home runs, 10 RBIs, 5 runs, and .760 slugging percentage, playing as the designated hitter.

On August 13, 2010, Lee wrote a new chapter in Korean baseball by hitting a home run in nine straight games in the league. The ninth home run was made in the top of the seventh inning at an away match against the Kia Tigers in Gwangju when he sent former Major Leaguer Aquilino Lopez’s fifth pitch over the left fence of Moodeung Stadium. This wrote a new record in professional baseball for nearly two decades shared by Ken Griffey Jr in 1993, Don Mattingly in 1987 and Dale Long in 1956.[2] On August 14, 2010, Lee set a world record by hitting a home run for his ninth straight game in the second inning of Giants' second away match against the Tigers when he blasted his three-run homer off Tigers reliever Kim Hee-Girl over the center fence of Moodeung Stadium.[3] It was his 38th home run of the season. Lee also marked his 83rd run, renewing the Korean record of most consecutive games with a run, to 16 games.

In the 2010, he enjoyed one of the most dominant offensive seasons in world professional baseball history, leading the KBO in seven offensive categories (Batting Average, HRs, RBIs, Runs Scored, On Base Percentage, Slugging Percentage and OPS), making him a Septuple Crown winner (7관왕).
