Baseball team coach Lee Kang-cheol appeared on the 15th (Korean time) with a cart to watch KIA Tigers Yang Hyeon-jong and Lee Eui-ri pitching in the bullpen.
Coach Lee, who was still a member 카지노 of kt Wiz ahead of the national team training on the 16th, was able to preview the bullpen pitching of the two national team players because the KIA and kt spring camps are in the same location. Both teams are using the Keno Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona, USA.
The Kino Sports Complex has 8 official baseball fields including the main stadium, the Kino Veteran Memorial Stadium, and 2 simple stadiums for infield training without an outfield. There are many training grounds like this, so even if two teams train together, the traffic lines do not overlap, making it an optimal environment.
In addition, from the 16th, the national team participating in the World Baseball Classic (WBC) next month also started using two grounds. The national team played its first practice game against NC Wiz on the 17th, followed by KIA on the 20th, and coach Lee’s team kt on the 23rd and 25th, before taking a flight to Korea on the 28th.
Coach Lee said after training on the 16th, “Thank you NC. In fact, practice games are impossible at this time. Thank you for catching the game. I really expected it, but I really caught it. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to coach Kang In-kwon and NC.” He expressed his gratitude over and over again. NC is holding a spring camp at Hycobet Field, which is 10 minutes away from Kino Sports Complex.
KBO teams usually start spring camp on February 1st and after three weeks of technical training, practice games begin at the end of February. Even if they had a practice game before that, it was about a light warm-up, Cheongbaekjeon. However, NC readily accepted the official practice game despite the unusually cold weather. On the 17th, the national team won 8-2 with Kang Baek-ho and Choi Jeong’s home runs, and began to show off their real sense of the game.
Same with kt. Taking the sacrifice of sending both the 1st and 2nd team coaches (Lee Kang-cheol and Kim Ki-tae) to the national team, kt selected a total of 8 members, including 4 players, trainer Hong Joo-seong, and bullpen catcher Kang Jae-wook. Two practice games were organized to revive Lee’s spirit and support the national team.
The KIA, which will have a practice game on the 20th, accepted the national team plan to use Yang Hyeon-jong, who is likely to be selected for the opening game, as a bullpen pitcher. Kim Jong-guk, coach of the KIA, said, “Korean baseball can develop and raise the mood only when good results are produced. did.
However, coach Kim said, “There are many cases of overplaying during national competitions. During the 2006 WBC, Kim Dong-ju of the world did a head first slide. I hope. I hope that the former player will do well without injury.”
KBO League teams endured the selection of players for demonstration games for the success of this WBC, which could be the last adult national team for the time being. Attention is focusing on whether coach Lee Kang-cheol and the players, who felt the support and sacrifices of all the coaches, will be able to repay expectations by doing their best in the WBC.
