SSG's New Coach Lee Soong-yong Says, "If we Solidify our Capabilities, It's Worth a Try with any Team"

“Motivated players give me confidence… competition for positions continues.”

New professional baseball coach SSG Landers Lee Soong-yong, who held his first spring camp as the first team head coach, returned to Korea with confidence.

Director Lee, who met at Incheon International Airport on the 7th, said, “We achieved results that exceeded our expectations.

“All of the players worked hard and played well,” he said.

“If we solidify our capabilities well, it’s worth playing with any team.” 카지노

“What made me so confident is our players,” he said with a bright expression.

SSG appointed Coach Lee Soong-yong as the new head coach in November last year.

Coach Lee, who started spring camp on February 1 with both excitement and worry, said that his confidence grew after completing the camp.

He said, “I will see things to improve during the exhibition games, but I have great confidence right now,” and added, “I finished the camp with gratitude to the coaching staff, front office, and players.”

At spring camp, coach Lee emphasized ‘autonomy’ for veteran players and ‘competition’ for young players.

The ‘competitive structure’ created by young players made Coach Lee happy.

Coach Lee said, "We confirmed the players' motivation during an evaluation match in Taiwan.

The players recommended by Futures (2nd team) coach Son Si-heon also showed more than 100% performance," adding, "We can further check the potential of the young players in the exhibition game."

“It is,” he said.

SSG has not confirmed the starting first baseman, second baseman, or catcher.

Go Myung-jun and Jeon Eui-san are competing for the starting first baseman position, while veterans Kim Seong-hyun and Ahn Sang-hyun are competing for the starting second baseman position.

Manager Lee said, “Go Myung-jun and Jeon Eui-san showed increasingly better performances in the evaluation match,” and added, “The competition between first and second basemen will continue until the end of the exhibition game.”

In the catcher category, Cho Hyung-woo, born in 2002, challenges veterans Lee Ji-young and Kim Min-sik.

Manager Lee smiled and said, “I think Yoon Gwan will come out at the end of the exhibition game as well. I’m having happy thoughts.”

New foreign pitcher Robert Dugger, who has already thrown a fastball of over 150 km/h, also gave coach Lee Soong-yong confidence.

Coach Lee said, “I want to give him 100 points in all aspects of character and skill,” and expected, “Dugger is a pitcher who can easily achieve 10 or more wins if he stays healthy.”

There is no need to worry about pitchers Kim Gwang-hyun and Choi Jeong, who represent Korean baseball, and Choo Shin-soo, who has built a brilliant career in the major leagues.

Choo Shin-soo, who returned to Korea a little earlier on the 1st due to symptoms of enteritis, immediately joins the team and prepares for the opening exhibition game against the Lotte Giants to be held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 9th.
