Is Left-handed pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers Hyun-Jin Ryu dating anyone? Come on girls, his name might not be the easiest to pronounce but the 26-year-old who became the first player after seven seasons with the Hanwha Eagles of KBO to join a MLB team via the posting system, sure deserves a chance!
It would be kind of cool to be the girlfriend or the wife of Hyun-Jin Ryu right about now; he is also the first South Korean to serve as the starting pitcher of a Major League Baseball postseason game. That not being all Ryu showed them how it’s done when he got a big win, by leading the Dodgers to a 3-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night.
Ryu recovered from the worst start of his rookie season with one of the best performances of his 26-year-old life. He pitched seven shutout innings to best Cardinal ace Adam Wainwright and kept Dodgers from going down three games to none. PS: Only four starting pitchers in Dodgers history have thrown seven or more scoreless innings in a postseason game and allowed three or fewer hits!
And this is still his MLB debut year.
But getting back to his love life; the lucky lady dating him knows his man was selected to his seventh consecutive All-Star team, going 9-9 with a 2.66 ERA in 27 starts with Hanwha of the Korea Baseball Organization. Picked up his fifth KBO strikeout title, fanning a career-high 210 hitters in 182.2 innings.
A few months back The team had asked South Korean group called Girl Generation to throw the first pitch at a game, and Tiffany was there as a representative of the group. She is a a fellow South Korean star and visited to throw a ball at Dodgers Stadium. Ryu is said to be a fan of the girl group and the two of them were seen bonding and chatting.
They do make a nice couple and they both live in L.A. But no leads on Ryu’s romantic status just yet, maybe he has someone special back in South Korea?
