“If I had the Hattae-KIA Tigers, Jung-hoo had the Kiwoom Heroes.”
Coach Lee Jong-beom (53) is stepping up to help his son, Jung-hoo (25), reach the major leagues. He prioritizes his son’s dreams over his own learning.
Lee attended the Yang Jun-hyuk Baseball Foundation 2023 Hope for More Charity Baseball Tournament at Gocheok Sky Dome on June 26. This is the 11th time he has participated in the charity baseball tournament. He said, “Yang Jun-hyuk was my motivation for joining the professional baseball team and we had a similar time of retirement from active service. (Looking back on the past), he is a friend and senior who has accompanied me. Moreover, the ‘Hope More Charity Baseball Tournament’ is an event with a good cause, so I always take the time to attend every off-season as the manager of Jun-hyuk’s brother’s opponent team.”
The coach has a lot of good things going for him this year.
He’s won an overall championship with LG. 바카라사이트 This is something he’s experienced many times in his career as a part of the HaeTae and KIA dynasties, but never as a coach. “I thought my emotions would cool down quickly because it was my first championship as a coach, but meeting the LG players today was definitely different. I could still feel their joy,” he said.
“There was something else to celebrate,” he said. “My only grandchild was born on the 22nd, and I was so happy. I was busy celebrating, and (Ko) Woo-seok and his daughter were also busy.”
LG closer Ko Woo-seok married Lee’s daughter, Ga-hyun, in January of this year. When asked if his only grandchild would like to play baseball in the future, Lee said, “I don’t know. Jung-hoo wants him to be a beast, even posting on social media himself, but I don’t think his uncle’s wishes are that important. It’s up to the parents to decide what their grandchildren want to do.”
He then spoke briefly about Lee Jung-hoo and his son-in-law Go Woo-seok’s entry into the major leagues. On March 15, the KBO announced that it had received a request from the Major League Baseball (MLB) Secretariat to check the identities of LG’s Go Woo-seok and Kiwoom’s Lee Jung-hoo, and that “the players are members of the LG Twins and Kiwoom Heroes clubs, respectively.”
First of all, the KBO requested the MLB Secretariat to post Lee Jung-hoo to 30 MLB teams at the request of the Kiwoom Heroes on April 24.
Lee Jung-hoo is trying to enter the major leagues in earnest. Go Woo-seok has received permission from the LG team to post and is coordinating the timing.
For now, his son’s preparation for the big leagues comes first. The coach has thought about studying coaching, but he’s more concerned with Lee’s transition to the major leagues and adjustment. “At this point, Jung-hoo comes first. My studies can wait. I’ll start after he’s in the season,” he said.
It’s a special feeling to think of his son, who was nominated to play professionally seven years ago. “If I had the Haetae-KIA Tigers, he had the Kiwoom Heroes,” the coach said. Because there was a team called Kiwoom, there was Jung-hoo, and it was possible for Jung-hoo to challenge the major leagues. Jung-hoo himself is very aware of that.” So I’m worried about how he’ll do overseas. Parents can’t help but worry.
“I know from my past experience in NPB that it’s hard to adapt to a different culture. I want to make sure that he is able to give his all in that regard, and my wife and I are taking care of his physical appearance and overall needs in the United States.”
Who also played in the Japanese professional baseball league, says, “Japan and the U.S. are different. Especially for Jung-hoo, I don’t have any technical advice for him now. He’s already grown up. I’m just talking a little bit about the mental side of things. But it’s not really at the stage of ‘advice’. You have to feel it yourself and overcome it. Major League Baseball is a place where the best players from all over the world come together. 온라인카지노 Adaptation will be the key,” he added.
Meanwhile, the Yang Jun-hyuk Baseball Foundation 2023 Hope More Charity Baseball Tournament saw the Yang Shin team defeat the Jong Bum-shin team 13-9.
