If he had his own way, Lee Seung-yeop of the Samsung Lions, who is retiring at the end of this season, would be happy to hang up his uniform and make a quiet exit after his final game.
The much loved and decorated slugger has been resisting moves by fans and the league to give him a big sendoff, nixing a couple of events to honor his achievements.
Instead, he will play matches against nine different teams, beginning with this Friday's game against the Hanwha Eagles in Daejeon. He will tour their home stadiums, giving him a chance to say farewell to fans across the country.
His last stop will be the Lions' home stadium in Daegu.
