Eternal star’ Lee Seung-yeop, Doosan coach “It’s a real start… Emphasis on discovering left-handed pitcher
Director Lee Seung-yeop (47), who appeared for the first time at a gathering of general fans since taking over the professional baseball Doosan Bears baton at the end of last year, entered Terminal 1 of Incheon International Airport with as many fans as he did during his active duty. .
Coach Lee, who is leaving for field training with the Doosan team in Sydney, Australia on the afternoon of the 29th, said in an interview before departure, “I came to the departure hall today, and many fans came, and now I feel like I’m really leaving.”
“I haven’t been exposed to that many things in the past, but I received a lot of hospitality at the airport today,” he said. added.
Coach Lee, who led the team from the finishing training and was engrossed in identifying the Doosan players, said, “This spring camp is the last chance to find players who can fight from the opening day of the regular season.” I will lead the training by clearly distinguishing what to do and what not to do without it.”
At the same time, he said, “Spring camp training is 40 days, but I will come back feeling satisfied enough to think that I trained for 50 days and 60 days.”
Coach Lee, who burned active duty as Korea’s leading slugger with the motto, ‘True effort never betrays’, is a typical training supremacist.
Doosan players have already been warned of strong training, but considering the weather in Sydney, they predicted that the amount of training at the spring camp would not reach the finishing amount.
Coach Lee placed high expectations on the pride and perseverance of Doosan players.
Coach Lee said, “I think the Doosan players will feel great regret that they finished ninth last year.” I will do my best to complete the team again so that I can think of it.”
Coach Lee plans to focus winter training on discovering pitchers, especially left-handers.
He pointed out, “There is a shortage of left-handed pitchers,” and pointed out, “It is easy to operate the pitching staff when there is a left-handed pitcher who can block about one inning in the middle.”
He said, “Veteran Jang Won-joon, who has been sluggish for several years, is now at the point where he has to gradually prepare for a breakup with baseball, and I don’t want to see that.” No. Whether it’s a starter or a midfielder, whatever role he plays, I hope to메이저놀이터 see Jang Won-joon in the first team.”
Director Lee revealed that he was also worried about the shortstop side, where Kim Jae-ho, Lee Yu-chan, and Ahn Jae-seok competed, and predicted that it would be “very interesting” if Lee Yu-chan and Ahn Jae-seok grew up with Kim Jae-ho, who has nothing to say in terms of experience and skills.
He also hoped that Jang Won-joon and Kim Jae-ho would take good care of their juniors so that they could maintain good teamwork throughout the season.
In preparation for this season with many variables, such as the World Baseball Classic (WBC) in March and the Hangzhou Asian Games in September, coach Lee chose finding three candidates for starting pitchers and a winning team as an urgent priority in the spring camp.
Lastly, with Kwak Bin participating in the WBC, coach Lee praised him, saying, “I think he has an almost An Woo-jin level of ability.” After uploading it, I looked at it with a ‘half-expected, half-worried’ gaze to see what it would look like when it returned to Doosan.
