[Naver Logo Project] Pertandingan Bisbol Profesional yang Pertama di Korea Selatan (27 Maret 1982)

《바람이 불고 추운 날씨였음에도 불구하고 당시 서울운동장(지금은 사라진 동대문운동장)은 3여 관중으로 만원을 이뤘다. 고적대의 우렁찬 연주와 학생들의 힘찬 민속무용과 함께, 삼성라이온즈의 팬이자 제일모직의 직원들로 이루어진 카드섹션 응원단의 발랄함과 함께! 경기장은 흥분과 함성으로 가득했다.》

운동장 = 運動場 artinya stadion

만 = 萬 artinya sepuluh ribu

직원 = 職員 artinya pegawai, karyawan, staf

민속무용 = 民俗舞踊 artinya tarian tradisional

Walaupun cuaca sedang berangin dan dingin, Stadion Seoul (kini Stadion Dongdaemun) penuh akan penonton berjumlah 30.000 orang. Ada pertunjukan musik dan tarian tradisional berdampingan dengan sorak sorai Samsung Lions dan pegawai-pegawai Cheil Industries. Stadion seakan penuh dengan kegembiraan dan suara penonton.

《개막식을 본 사람이라면 6구단의 소개가 끝난 뒤, 140여 명의 모든 선수들이 일제히 운동장으로 달려 나오던 장관을 잊을 수 없을 것이다. 선수들의 얼굴에는 실업야구를 넘어 프로야구라는 새로운 시대를 이끄는 주인공으로서의 기대감과 미국, 일본에 이어 세계에서 3번째로 프로야구를 시작한다는 자부심이 묻어났다.》

소개 = 紹介 artinya perkenalan atau memperkenalkan

선수 = 選手 artinya pemain, atlet

야구 = 野球 artinya bisbol

주인공 = 主人公 artinya pemeran utama, protagonis

Siapapun yang menyaksikan upacara pembukaan tersebut tidak akan melupakan saat di mana semua 140 pemain masuk ke stadion setelah pengenalan tim keenam. Muka para pemain dipenuhi dengan ekspektasi sebagai pemeran utama dalam era baru bisbol profesional setelah Amerika Serikat dan Jepang sudah memulainya terlebih dahulu.

사자와 청룡의 대결

사자 = 獅子 artinya Lion, singa

대결 = 對決 artinya pertarungan, pertandingan

《개막전은 당시 가장 주목을 받던 두 팀의 경기였다.
​이미 국가 대표급 선수들이 모여있던 강력한 우승후보 삼성라이온즈, 일본에서 프로야구를 경험한 바 있던 노장, 백인천 감독 겸 선수를 필두로 걸출한 스타를 보유하고 있던 MBC청룡의 대결이었다. 이날의 경기는 모든 것이 처음이었다. 대부분의 선수들은 대학야구, 실업야구 출신들로 구성되어 있었지만, ​프로로서의 경기는 몇몇 해외파를 제외하고는 그야말로 처음이었던 것이다.》

경기 = 競技 artinya pertandingan

주목 = 注目 artinya perhatian

경험 = 經驗 artinya pengalaman

Pertandingan pembuka mempertemukan dua tim yang paling menyita perhatian.

Samsung Lions, jagoan kuat yang terdiri dari pemain-pemain tim nasional dan yang pernah melakoni bisbol profesional di Jepang. MBC Cheongryong, yang mempunyai pemain bintang Baek In-cheon, sebagai pelatih utama dan pemain. Kebanyakan pemain dulunya bermain di level universitas atau SMA/SMK dengan beberapa pengecualian di atas.
  
연장 10회말, 이종도 선수는 역전 만루홈런이라는 그야말로 드라마틱한 피날레를 장식한다. 전국으로 중계된, 전에 없던 이 역전의 드라마는 프로야구 34년 인기의 예고편이 아니었을까? 개막전 승리 후 인터뷰에서 백인천 감독겸 선수는 벅찬 감동에 말을 잇지 못하고 눈물을 흘리며 팬들의 감성까지 터치하고 만다. 그야말로 빈틈없이 짜여진 각본 없는 드라마라 할 수 있겠다.》

연장 = 延長 artinya perpanjangan, tambahan

Mendekati akhir inning ke-10 (tambahan), Lee Jong-do mengakhiri pertandingan dengan manis. Dalam wawancara setelah memenangkan pertandingan pembuka, Baek In-cheon tidak bisa melanjutkan berbicara dan menangis. Seperti drama tanpa skenario dan tanpa ada yang ditutup-tutupi.

《처음은 아니었다》

Itu bukan yang pertama

《사실 프로야구는 70년대에 탄생할 수도 있었다. 70년대에 엄청난 인기를 끌었던 고교야구는 청룡기, 대통령기, 화랑기, 황금사자기 등 봄부터 가을까지 진행이 되었는데 지상파 중계는 물론이고, 어지간한 국제대회보다 관심이 높았다. 이는 자연스레 프로야구에 대한 필요성으로 이어졌고 실제로 1976년, 프로야구를 창단하려는 움직임이 시작되었다. 그러나 ​당시 실업야구를 이끌었던 은행팀들이 예금주들의 돈으로 프로야구단 법인을 만들고 운영하기란 사실상 불가능했다. 결국 프로구단을 만들 기업의 부재를 가장 큰 이유로 76년 프로 출범은 좌절 되었다.》

Sebenarnya, bisbol profesional bisa saja lahir pada tahun 70an. Bisbol SMA yang sangat populer pada tahun 1970an, diadakan dari musim semi sampai musim gugur, termasuk Bendera Naga Biru, Bendera Kepresidenan, Bendera Hwarang, dan Bendera Singa Emas, yang lebih menarik dibandingkan siaran TV dan kompetisi internasional. Secara alami, ini membuat kebutuhan akan bisbol profesional semakin terasa. Tahun 1976, gerakan membuat bisbol profesional dimulai. Namun, hampir tidak mungkin bagi tim bank-bank untuk mendanai pemain bisbol tanpa pekerjaan dengan uang dari para nasabah bank. Akhirnya, rencana bisbol profesional dihentikan karena tidak ada satu tim pun yang bermain.
 
《그로부터 6년 후, 두 번째 시도.
이번에도 프로구단을 만들 기업을 찾기란 만만치 않았다. 당시의 경제규모는 지금과는 달라서 소비재 기업이 아니면 구단을 만들기 어려웠다. 삼성, 롯데, 해태, OB, 4개의 소비재 기업과 82년 프로야구 개막을 주도했던 MBC 방송국. 이렇게 5개 팀은 만들어냈으나, 효율적인 리그 운영을 위해서는 팀을 짝수로 만들어야 했다. 연고지는 인천으로 정해놓은 상태였으나 나서는 기업이 없던 그때, 삼미그룹이 인천을 위해 영웅처럼 나타났다. 그렇게 탄생한 팀이 바로 소설이나 영화에서도 수차례 다뤄져 요즘의 팬들에게도 익숙한 ‘삼미슈퍼스타즈’ 다. 급조된 만큼 완성되지 못한 약체팀으로 시작할 수 밖에 없었기에 하위권에 머무르다 매각 됐지만, 이 팀이 아니었더라면 또 한번 프로야구의 시작이 늦어졌을 테니 야구 역사를 이야기 할 때 빼놓을 수 없는 중요한 팀이었음이 틀림없다.》

시도 = 試圖 artinya percobaan

구단 = 球團 artinya klub

소비 = 消費 artinya konsumsi

Enam tahun setelah itu, percobaan kedua.

Lagi, sulit untuk menemukan perusahaan yang akan membentuk klub profesional. Pada masa itu, ukuran ekonomi Korea Selatan berbeda dengan sekarang, yang menyulitkan membentuk sebuah klub kecuali perusahaan tersebut bergerak di bidang barang konsumsi. Samsung, Lotte, Haitai, OB, empat perusahaan barang konsumsi dan stasiun penyiaran MBC menjadi tim-tim pertama dalam gelaran liga pro bisbol pada tahun 1982. Agar seimbang, jumlah tim harus genap. Grup Sammi menjadi pahlawan bagi Incheon karena waktu itu tidak ada perusahaan lain lagi. Istilah “Sammi Superstars” sangat dikenal karena sering masuk novel dan film. Tim ini dijual karena menjadi juru kunci. Walaupun mereka tim lemah, tanpa mereka, bisbol profesional pasti akan ditunda lagi. Maka dari itu, mereka adalah sebuah tim yang mempunyai peran penting dalam sejarah bisbol.
