Korean baseball ‘Icon’ Lee Jeong-hoo (25) became the Kiwoom Heroes captain.
On the 20th, the Kiwoom club announced that “Lee Jung-hoo was appointed as the new captain to lead the 2023 season team.” Kiwoom coach Hong Won-ki explained the direction of the team during a meeting with Lee Jung-hoo, who was about to leave for the United States earlier this month, and expressed his desire to captain the team for the 2023 season. Lee Jung-hoo also accepted.
Lee Jung-hoo, who was in charge of the important role, said, “There are many young players in our team. I think that the coach entrusted me with the captaincy to help young players adapt to the professional world and to help them when they are in difficult or difficult situations.” “No matter what, I will always create an atmosphere where all the players can come comfortably and talk and share their concerns. I will do my best to help the team rise to a higher level in a good atmosphere.” .
Lee Jung-hoo, who is currently undergoing individual training in the United States, plans to join the Kiwoom team as soon as they arrive in Scottsdale, Arizona, the training ground for the spring camp, and assume the captaincy in earnest.
Lee Jung-hoo, who drew attention as the son of Korean baseball legend Lee Jong-beom, started as a starting pitcher in his debut season (2017) 온라인바카라 and was crowned rookie of the year that year. Since then, he has been on a winning streak. He had a batting average of 0.355 in his second year, and the following year he had 193, tied for sixth most hits in a single season all-time. In the 2021 season, he became the batting king (0.360) and became the world’s first father and son batting king along with Lee Jong-beom. He rose to the top and became the MVP of the season. He also collaborated with Lee Jong-beom for the first rich MVP.
After the 2023 season, Lee Jung-hoo declared that he would advance to the Major League (MLB). He will be eligible to apply for posting. He also allowed the club. He could qualify as a free agent if he competes in all international competitions this year.
The only thing left for Lee Jung-hoo is victory. He has advanced to the Korean Series twice, but has yet to lift a trophy. Kiwoom entered the Korean Series last season, laughing at the low evaluation of being outside the top 5. He even signed an outside free agent contract for the 2023 season and reinforced his power. It provided Lee Jung-hoo with a place (claim) where he could have both responsibility and motivation. Kiwoom fans can see Lee Jung-hoo with ‘C (CAPTAIN)’ engraved on his chest. It is expected to be another pleasure.
