‘Genius’ Lee Jung-hoo (25), who announced his entry into the Major League (MLB), takes on the main role of captain and challenges Kiwoom to win the Korean Series first.
On the 20th, Kiwoom announced that ‘Lee Jeong-hoo was appointed as the new captain for the 2023 season’. It is known that Kiwoom director Hong Won-ki made a direct request and made it happen. In a meeting with Lee Jung-hoo, coach Hong explained the direction of the team and requested that Lee Jung-hoo be the center.
Lee Jung-hoo, who was in charge of the captaincy in the 7th year of joining, said, “Our team has a lot of young players. I think the reason why the coach entrusted the captaincy is to help young players adapt to the professional world and help them when they are in difficult or difficult situations. Regardless of age and seniority, we will create an atmosphere where all players can come comfortably and talk and share their concerns. I will do my part to help the team rise to a higher level in a good atmosphere.” 슬롯사이트
Kiwoom, who won runner-up in the Korean Series last year, can achieve its first dream of winning if it goes up one step further. Lee Jung-hoo expressed his affection for the team, saying, “It is a daunting task just to imagine being left in history as the first winning member.”
Lee Jung-hoo, who left for the United States early and is training individually, will move to Scottsdale, Arizona on the 30th (Korean time) to join the team. After training for about two weeks as a captain in Scottsdale, he plans to move to Tucson, where the World Baseball Classic (WBC) national team camp is set up, and enter the MLB showcase.
