In Samsung Lions, the stripes are a symbol of the dynasty. For 20 years, from 1995 to 2015, pinstripe patterns were always present on Samsung uniforms. And Samsung won a total of 7 championships with the striped uniform. From the first Korean Series in 2002, the first dynasty in 2005-2006, and the second dynasty with 4 consecutive losses in 2011-2014, reigning as the strongest team in the KBO League.
The stripes of the lion corps, which had disappeared for a while, were revived after 7 years in 2022. As pinstripes entered the ‘Sunday uniform’ worn only on Sunday games, it evoked nostalgia for stripes. The old uniforms were also changed. The welcome stripes returned in 2022 when the ‘Dynasty Uniform’, a symbol of the first dynasty, which was worn from 1995 to 2007 and won three championships, was adopted as an old uniform in 2022.
Is it because of strong memories? Samsung boasted a pretty high win rate wearing this striped uniform. He recorded 5 wins and 3 losses in 8 games wearing the Sunday uniform. Dynasty uniforms were stronger. In 15 matches, he recorded an overwhelming record of 11 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses with a win rate of 0.786. Originally, it was a uniform prepared only for the ‘Classic Series’ against the Lotte Giants, but it was worn in 9 more home games in September and won 7 wins. 토토꽁포인트
There was a strong request from the players in the background for Samsung to bring out the dynasty uniform again in September. The reason was “it looks strong”. Because it is a uniform that combines the strong energy emanating from the gothic ‘LIONS’ and the overwhelming memories of the first dynasty, it has become an asset of the dynasty and a symbol of confidence for the players. In fact, the classic series was also good (4 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss), so players preferred it.
At the time, coach Park Jin-man and coach Park Han-i, members of the 1st Dynasty who wore the old uniform again, also said that the dynasty uniform had a different energy. In particular, coach Park Han-yi said, “I won seven times with this striped uniform. This is the real Samsung… ”He cried. As the image remembered by the two legends, the squad wore the dynasty uniform and won the last 4 consecutive matches, rekindling the nostalgia of the dynasty.
Samsung brought out the striped special uniform again in 2023. Both the Sunday uniform and the Dynasty uniform have the same design as last year. The results are not bad, although not as overwhelming as last year. This season, Samsung won 3 wins and 1 loss wearing the Sunday uniform and 2 wins and 3 losses wearing the Dynasty uniform. 5 wins and 4 losses, including 21 wins, 1 draw and 10 losses until last year, the winning rate (0.656) is good.
However, the contents of this season are somewhat disappointing. Samsung suffered a losing streak wearing a dynasty uniform and suffered the lowest humiliation. In the first classic series against Lotte in early June, Samsung won a 2-1 advantage series (more than 2 wins out of 3 matches), and in the second series on the 27th and 28th, they bowed their heads with 2 losses in a row. In the game on the 27th, it suffered a painful come-from-behind loss in the 9th inning, and in the game on the 28th, it collapsed with 3 errors. It was a somewhat distant appearance from the majesty of the dynasty.
On the other hand, the Sunday uniform has become a symbol of ‘rebound’ that ends the losing streak. This season, Samsung lost all four matches the day before wearing the Sunday uniform. Of these, there were three and four consecutive losses. However, everyone wore the Sunday uniform and broke the losing streak. It was the same in Gyeonggi-do on the last two days. Wearing the Sunday uniform and winning 2-1, he laid the foundation for a rebound in July. 꽁머니사이트
As such, Samsung has good memories and energy in stripes to the point where you wonder if you should wear the pinstripe uniform again. Now is the time to carry on this spirit in the existing uniforms. Currently, Samsung has fallen to the bottom of the list with lethargic performance to the extent that the majesty of the dynasty cannot be found. It was the first time in 41 years that the season was in danger of ending at the bottom.
As we finished the last week of June with a victory with a striped uniform, we must now carry on this energy and escape the humiliation of the lowest rank. We look forward to regaining the dignity of the dynasty in the existing uniform.
