3 losses out of 3 Super Matches…Suwon’s last “chance to escape the river” or “the moment of the end of the second part of the crash.”

It’s a ‘last chance’ and a ‘defining moment’ for Suwon Samsung.

Suwon will play FC Seoul in the 32nd round supermatch of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 at 4:30 p.m. on Nov. 25 at Seoul World Cup Stadium. Suwon is in 12th place with 29 points (7 wins, 8 draws, 21 losses), while Seoul is in 7th place with 54 points (14 wins, 12 draws, 10 losses).

Suwon is in a tight relegation battle with 11th-place Gangwon FC (30 points) and 10th-place Suwon FC (32 points). All three teams are fighting to stay out of the 12th spot, which is the automatic relegation spot without a relegation playoff (PO).레모나토토 도메인

For last-place Suwon, the match against Seoul is their de facto last chance to avoid 12th place. The Super Match is a clincher because Gangwon and Suwon FC are playing on the same day and at the same time.

If Suwon loses to Seoul and Gangwon defeats Suwon FC, the standings will be as follows: Gangwon (33 points), Suwon FC (32 points), and Suwon (29 points). In the final round, if Suwon wins against Gangwon and Suwon FC loses to Jeju United, both Suwon and Suwon FC will have 32 points.

However, Suwon is at a disadvantage in the ranking system.

After points, the K League ranks teams based on goal differential, not goals scored. Suwon currently has 34 goals, while Suwon FC has 43. With only two games left, there is a gap of nearly 10 goals between the two teams, making it difficult to overturn the standings.

In the end, the best case scenario for Suwon would be for Seoul to win and then Suwon FC to beat Gangwon. In that case, Suwon FC (35 points), Suwon (32 points), and Gangwon (30 points) would be the finalists.

Suwon will need to overcome their biggest rival, Seoul, to achieve their best ‘what if’ scenario.

Suwon have lost both Supermatches against Seoul this season. The first match, played in Sangam, resulted in a 1-3 defeat. The next two matches were played at Suwon’s home ground, where they lost 0-1 to Willian and Illyucheko respectively.

To make matters worse, this is Seoul’s final home game of the season, and it’s already set to be a crowd record celebration.

Seoul has played 18 home games this season, drawing 394,022 fans. The average attendance is a whopping 21,890. If only 5,978 fans attend the game against Suwon, the club will surpass 400,000 paid fans for the first time in K League history.

The record is already in the bag. On the first day of ticket sales for the supermatch, 25,000 tickets were already sold, virtually guaranteeing a total attendance of 400,000. Seoul is looking to break the 400,000 paid attendance mark at home against rival Suwon.

For Suwon, it’s their last chance, and the Super Match could be the final nail in the coffin of a potentially devastating relegation battle.

Chae Eun-sung and Lee Tae-yang, An Chi-hong and Kim Kang-min…Hanwha is preparing for “Time for a Big Leap,” the hero of winter for the second consecutive year

For the second year in a row, the Hanwha Eagles have become the winter hero. Of course, Hanwha’s dream is not to be the winter champion, but the summer and fall champion.

Hanwha was in the driver’s seat as soon as the 2023-2024 offseason opened. The Lotte Giants made a big splash by hiring manager Kim Tae-hyung, but it wasn’t technically a reinforcement. Rather, Lotte lost free agent Ahn Chi-hong to Hanwha.토토사이트

Hanwha, on the other hand, aggressively pursued and signed Ahn Chi-hong as soon as the free agency market opened. Hanwha’s move was so sharp that Lotte had little time or opportunity to mount a proper offense. Ahn Chi-hong is a veteran who will actually bolster Hanwha’s weak batting lineup in right field.

Hanwha also acquired Kim Kang-min in the second round of the draft. This was another smart move. They snagged him in the fourth round, when there was no mandatory roster spot. Hanwha realized that even though Kim will be 42 next year, he still has value as a player. He’s not going to be a full-time starter anyway, and they expect him to bring years of experience and winning DNA to the field and dugout. Kim considered retirement and extending his playing career, but chose the latter. 

In the process, SSG Landers’ response drew criticism from some fans. Hanwha, on the other hand, remained steadfast. A year ago, they signed free agents Chae-Eun-sung and Lee Tae-yang in the free agency market, and this time around, they actually signed two free agents. The addition of Ahn Chi-hong and Kim Kang-min signaled that they are no longer a rebuilding team, but a top-five contender.

Hanwha attempted an extreme rebuild under the previous manager by pushing veterans out the door, and it’s hard to judge the success or failure of that choice based on the past two years, but it had some limitations, and the team eventually started over under Choi Won-ho, and the impact of the additions of Chae Eun-sung and Lee Tae-yang was immediate this year.

As a result, Hanwha has chosen to be realistic by adding veterans again under Son Hyuk and Choi Won-ho. Regardless of the reason or background, the average age and payroll have been adjusted to create a team with strength and experience for the present and future. The possibility of signing the biggest name in free agency, Yang Seok-hwan, is also being discussed directly and indirectly.

Regardless, it’s time to start producing real results, to become a summer and fall winner instead of a winter winner. After years of dominating the top of the rookie draft, Moon Dong-ju is already a homegrown ace. Kim Seo-hyun, Hwang Jun-seo, and others are expected to break out at some point. There’s also the “big card” of Ryu Hyun-jin’s return in the not-too-distant future. The time for a big leap is definitely coming.

The LG Twins won their first title in 29 years. The KIA Tigers have a good enough lineup to go straight to the top of the standings if they get their foreign one-two punch right. Hanwha, whose fans are just as loyal, if not more so, than those two teams, is about to give something back. With a strong winter for the second year in a row, it’s just a matter of making sure they’re ready for spring.

Il Imana completes the posting process on the 28th…”Attention from multiple clubs, 5 years and $85 million forecast”

Japanese pitcher Shota Imanaga, who is trying to make it to Major League Baseball (MLB), is expected to complete the posting process on Aug. 28 (Japan time).레모나토토 주소

“Imanaga, who is trying to make it to the big leagues through the posting system, will complete his posting application by the 28th,” Japanese media outlet Sportichi Annex reported on Thursday.

Imanaga, who made his professional debut in 2016 with the Yokohama DeNA Basestars of the Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB), has pitched in 165 games over eight seasons, compiling a 64-50 record with a 3.18 ERA.

Last season, he went 11-4, including two complete games and a no-hitter, and this season he went 7-4 with a 2.80 ERA in 22 games and 148 innings pitched.

He also earned a spot on the national team, helping Japan win the World Baseball Classic (WBC) in March. He pitched three innings of one-run relief against South Korea in the first round.

Imanaga, who went overseas on the posting system with the consent of his club after the season, is one of two free agent pitchers, along with Yoshinobu Yamamoto, who could land big contracts.

“The Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Dodgers, and Boston Red Sox are interested in Imanaga,” according to MLB TradeRumors, which covers the US transfer market, “while the New York Mets, New York Yankees, and St. Louis Cardinals could be in the mix. There will be a lot of interest over the next six to seven weeks.”

Imanaga’s contract is expected to total $85 million over five years.

“Next week’s conditions will be presented…I’ll do my best to catch it.” I finally start negotiations with FA’s biggest fish, and I’m willing to renew my contract

The Doosan Bears will be kicking off their house rabbit enforcement project in earnest next week. The goal is simple. To keep both Yang Seok-hwan (32) and Hong Gun-hee (31) in Doosan uniforms next year.

“Both Yang Seok-hwan and Hong Gun-hee are planning to start negotiations in earnest next week,” said a Doosan Bears official at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on March 23.토토사이트

Doosan, whose star first baseman Yang Seok-hwan and pitching coach Hong Gun-hee are both eligible for free agency, is keeping Stovrig busy by focusing on retaining the two players. They have already had one meeting with Yang’s representatives and plan to sit down next week to share their positions. As for Hong Gun-hee, the club has also set a contract size that matches the player’s level.

Yang Seok-hwan and Hong Gun-hee are the two new Class A players on the list of approved free agents for 2024, which was announced by the Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) on April 18. The two players, who were announced as free agents in 2024 on Nov. 15, applied to the KBO for approval to exercise their free agency rights and will be evaluated by the market for the first time.

Both Yang Seok-hwan and Hong Geon-hee are now eligible for free agency after reaching career milestones through trades. Yang Seok-hwan is the biggest name in the free agency market.

Yang Seok-hwan moved from LG to Doosan in a 2-for-2 trade in March 2021. For him, the move to Doosan was a stroke of genius. The Bears’ No. 5 first baseman earned the title of “trade bust” in his first season. In 2021, he batted .275 with 28 home runs and 96 RBIs in 133 games, erasing the team’s first base woes and helping them reach the Korean Series for the first time in seven years.

Unlike his first year, last year was a disappointment. His nagging adductor injury flared up early in the season, and even after returning in May, he struggled with the lingering effects, finishing the year with an underwhelming .244 batting average with 20 home runs and 51 RBIs in 107 games.

This year, under new manager Lee Seung-yeop, Yang took over the role of home run hitter for Doosan. He finished fifth in the league in home runs with a devastating .454 on-base percentage with 21 homers, 89 RBIs in 140 games. Yang is a quality right-handed slugger who hit 20 or more home runs (28-20-21) for three straight years, making him a very attractive card for teams in need of first base and center field reinforcements.

Hong previously came to Doosan from KIA in a one-for-one trade for Ryu Ji-hyeok in June 2020. After struggling with his fastball at KIA, he became a top-notch backstop in the league with a strong fastball that became his secondary pitch after the trade.

It’s no exaggeration to say that the trade changed his life. From his professional debut in 2011 to his trade, Hong logged 347 innings over the course of nearly a decade, and in just four seasons with the Doosan organization, he reached 254⅔ innings this year. He started the 2020 season with 68⅔ innings, followed by 74⅓ in 2021, 62 in 2022, and 61⅔ this year, anchoring the Doosan back end. In that span, he has 12 wins, 44 saves, and 39 holds.

Hong served as Lee Seung-ho’s closer this year, giving way to Chung Chul-won at the end of the year, but finished with a 1-5 record, 22 saves, and five holds in 64 games with a 3.06 ERA. Hong also served as Doosan’s pitching coach for the third straight year starting in 2021.

Yang and Hong will be vital resources for Doosan as they look to finish higher than fifth next season. First base and Pil Seung-jo are the positions where Doosan has the least depth, and since the trade, both players have played key roles on and off the field, making their retention essential to the team’s success. The club recognizes the importance of the two players and will make every effort to crack down on house rabbits starting next week.

However, Doosan has recently signed a string of big contracts, including Kim Jae-hwan (11.5 billion won), Jung Soo-bin (5.6 billion won), Heo Kyung-min (8.5 billion won), and Yang Ji (15.2 billion won). Doosan is conscious of its salary cap, so if the market heats up for two players, it can’t invest as much money as it did last year. “We will do our best to get both Yang Seok-hwan and Hong Gun-hee,” said a Doosan official, but he was cautious: “There is a baseline that we have set.”

The manager has also made a request to the club’s front office to keep the two players. Setting a target of at least third place for next season, Lee said, “With the start of the Stobrigue, there are many teams that have strengthened. We have Yang Seok-hwan and Hong Gun-hee who have applied for free agency, and I think both players will stay with Doosan. I expect good negotiations.” He wished for a crackdown on house rabbits.

“Do you wear pin stripes?” Soto’s transfer is expected to “finish early.”

In desperate need of a left-handed outfielder to lead the lineup alongside Aaron Judge (31), could the New York Yankees finalize a deal for Juan Soto (25) before the end of the Winter Meetings?, the official website of Major League Baseball, reported on Jan. 23 (ET) that the New York Yankees could potentially sign Soto before the end of the Winter Meetings.

According to the report, a trade for Soto likely won’t happen until later in the offseason. It could happen before the end of the Winter Meetings in early December.레모나토토

Soto is currently on the trade market. The San Diego Padres already discussed a Soto trade with the New York Yankees late last month.

Of course, there are plenty of teams interested in acquiring Soto. But none are as desperate as the New York Yankees, which is why there’s a good chance he’ll end up in pinstripes.

Soto was previously traded to San Diego from the Washington Nationals last August. The New York Yankees will be Soto’s third team if he makes the move.

Soto underperformed last year after being traded to San Diego. His OPS dropped from .894 in Washington to .778.

However, Soto bounced back this season, hitting .275 with 35 home runs, 109 RBI, 97 runs scored, 156 runs batted in, a .410 OPS, and a .930 slugging percentage in 162 games.

Soto is an all-around hitter who combines accuracy, power, and vision. He’ll likely be even stronger against the right field fence at New Yankee Stadium.

Soto is only one season away from free agency. As such, a trade would likely not be worth the price of Soto’s name.

If Soto does end up in a New York Yankees uniform, there will be a lot of interest in signing him to a supersized extension before he becomes a free agent.

Kim Kwang Hyun “It’s really cold today” + Han Yu Island “Is this right?”…Kim Kang-min to Hanwha → Signs of shock

No one would have thought that this player would be the center of attention in the second draft held four years after 2019.

SSG Landers veteran outfielder Kim Kang-min, who played for Incheon for more than two decades, was forced to leave the team.

The Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) held the 2024 KBO Secondary Draft at The K Hotel in Yangjae-dong, Seoul, at 2 p.m. on April 22. With officials from 10 clubs in attendance, a total of 22 players were selected from the 35-man protected list to join other teams.굿모닝토토 주소

After the second round of the draft, which lasted about 30 minutes, the results of the 10 clubs’ selections were announced. SSG’s main infielder Choi Joo-hwan was selected in the first round to join the Kiwoom Heroes, while veteran bullpen pitcher Woo Kyu-min moved from the Samsung Lions to the KT Wiz. In addition, veteran infielder Oh Sun-jin moved from the Hanwha Eagles to the Lotte Giants, and “2019 second-round pick” outfielder Song Seung-hwan moved from the Doosan Bears to the NC Dinos.

But it was in the fourth round that the picks made us forget all about the results of the third round. Hanwha called the name of SSG outfielder Kim Kang-min. It was the last thing anyone would have expected.

Drafted by the SK Wyverns (now SSG) with the 18th pick of the second round in 2001, Kim began to get regular first-team opportunities in 2006 and has been a staple in the outfield for more than a decade. As time went on, his veteran status was overshadowed by the emergence of players younger than him.

In particular, Kim is one of the few players to have experienced every Korean Series title with SK, including 2007, 2008, 2010, 2018, and last year. Last year, he hit a game-winning three-run homer in Game 5 of the Korean Series and was named Series MVP. It’s no wonder that the name “Kim Kang-min” means so much to fans and players alike.

In 70 games with the first team this season, Kim has seen a decline in his performance, hitting just .226 with 31 hits in 137 at-bats, two home runs and seven RBIs. This is why he was faced with two options: extending his career or retiring.

Not much progress was made until the 21st, when the new SSG manager Lee Sung-yong was inaugurated. When asked about the fate of veteran outfielders Kim Kang-min and Choo Shin-soo, Lee said, “I haven’t met or spoken to them yet, but I will respect their judgment and (the club) will go along with it.”

SSG has offered Kim Kang-min a coaching program, as well as the possibility of organizing a retirement game during next season. It’s not a grand retirement tour, but it’s a way to honor a one-club man who spent 23 years with the same team.

However, Kim Kang-min’s name was not on the list of protected players for the second round. “In order to protect our prospects, we informed them in advance that Choi Joo-hwan and Kim Kang-min would be removed from the protected list, and we didn’t expect any team to select Kim Kang-min,” SSG President Kim Sung-yong told reporters after the draft.

For the second round of the draft, players in their first to third years, current-year free agents (including returning overseas free agents), and foreign players were categorized as “automatic excluded players. This means that teams did not have to protect players from this year’s draft or the 2021-2022 draft.

The club’s position is that they couldn’t tie him down to protect their prospects, but that doesn’t make it any easier to justify leaving him “defenseless” in front of their eyes. The club had time to make a move beforehand, as Hanwha announced on the 14th that Jung Woo-ram would take on the role of playing coach.

Fans are fans, but teammates, who watched Kim up close, are in a state of shock. They never imagined that Kim would be wearing another team’s jersey.

Pitcher Kim Kwang-hyun, who has won five Korean Series titles with Kim, posted on Instagram that day, “They say social media is a waste of life, but I have to do it today. I respect someone’s choice, but I think 23 years shouldn’t be ignored. Goodbye brother. It’s really cold today,” and expressed his regret. Outfielder Han Yoo-seom posted a photo of himself with Kim Kang-min with the captions, “Is this right?” and “Kang-min, I’ll be home soon.

SSG moved faster than any other club at the end of the season, reaching out to coach Lee Sung-yong after Kim Won-hyung’s contract was terminated, and emphasizing the need for a generational change by referring to “remodeling” rather than “rebuilding.

It was true that change was necessary, but the current trend is not remodeling, but literally ‘colorless’. Even if Kim Kang-min decides to retire without playing the 2024 season, it’s hard to see a good picture, and SSG has crossed the river of no return with its complacency.

Brother Austin and brother Aaron Nola hyperbolic

The Philadelphia Phillies made the fastest free agent signing of the 2023 offseason.

They signed Aaron Nola, 30, to a 21-year, $174 million (224.6 billion won) contract after he rejected a qualifying offer. His annualized salary is $24.85 million (32 billion won). It is the first $100 million free agent signing of the offseason. It’s also the first $100 million free agent signing of the offseason, according to Dave Dombrowski, president of baseball operations. Dombrowski has a recklessly bold approach to free agency.토토사이트

This makes him a one-club guy, drafted by the Phillies, who made his debut in 2015 and will be with the team for seven more years. It’s a similar pattern to the New York Yankees’ Aaron Judge, who signed a nine-year deal last year.

Nola’s long-term deal is an ideal situation for the player, the organization, and the fans. Nola is not a top-of-the-rotation starter, but he is an absolute force on the mound for the Phillies. In 2017, his third year, he started 27 games and took the mound every fifth day without injury.

Excluding the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, he averaged 32.6 starts from 2018 through this year. Has pitched in regulation innings in every start since 2017. Has pitched 200+ innings three times. In the postseason this year, he appeared in four games, allowing six runs in 23 innings for a 2.35 ERA. Zack Wheeler is a one-two punch on the mound.

While his younger brother Nola is preparing for a warm winter with a big contract, his older brother Austin, 33, is in a different situation. ‘Tis the season for cuts. Last weekend, the San Diego Padres non-tendered four players, including catcher Austin Nola and pitcher Tim Hill.

A “non-tender” is simply a release. A team releases a player without signing him to a contract, making him a free agent. In Major League Baseball, players don’t take a pay cut unless they sign a free agent contract. When a team non-tenders a player, it means that there are no factors that can increase his salary. It also means that there is a player available to replace him.

Austin Nola has struggled with injuries this year, batting .146 with one home run and eight RBIs in 52 games. His salary this year was $2.35 million.

Aaron and Austin are both from Louisiana in the southern United States. They went to college side by side at LSU (Louisiana State University). The older brother is a catcher and the younger brother is a pitcher. Austin was traded from the Seattle Mariners of the American League to the San Diego Padres of the National League in 2020, which led to a brotherly pitching duel.

’17K shutout victory 14K completeout victory 9K complete shutout victory’ Japanese legend Ichiro also won the 3rd high school selection match…Matsuzaka gets one hit

Japanese legend Ichiro Ichiro, 50, won his third game against a female high school varsity team.

For the third year in a row, Ichiro hosted a friendly game between his social baseball team, Kobe Chiben, and a Japanese girls’ high school team at the Tokyo Dome on Nov. 21. Ichiro started the game and threw 116 pitches over nine innings, allowing five hits, striking out nine and walking none.

Kobe Chiben won the game 4-0. Ichiro hit a two-run homer to go along with the shutout. Daisuke Matsuzaka (43), who played alongside Ichiro, went 1-for-4.레모나토토

According to Japanese media, Ichiro hit 138 kilometers per hour on two pitches in the first inning. Ichiro hit a double to right-center field in the fifth inning and felt some discomfort in his right thigh after stepping on second base. Ichiro stayed on the mound after the sixth inning and threw 116 pitches for the complete game victory.

After the game, Ichiro said, “It’s unfortunate that I had a bad outing in the middle, but I’m glad I was able to finish,” and “I hit my limit in the early stages…I want to improve.” He pitched a complete game despite a nagging injury to his right leg. Ichiro took responsibility, saying, “There was no way I was coming off the mound in the middle.” Japanese media outlet Junichi Sports said, “He showed a phenomenal pitching performance that hasn’t diminished even at the age of 50.”

Matsuzaka, making his second appearance since last year, started at shortstop, batting fourth. He singled up the middle with one out in the first inning for a 1-0 lead, but was stranded after a grounder to second, a fly out to center and a strikeout.

“I think it was a very good game,” Matsuzaka said. I wanted to get a hit, but I wanted to do a better job of helping Ichiro-san on defense than hitting,” Matsuzaka said. “Next year, I’d like to pitch as a relief pitcher next to Ichiro.”

Ichiro entered the major leagues in 2001 and played in 2,653 career games through 2019, batting .301 with 117 home runs, 780 RBIs, 1,420 runs scored and 509 stolen bases. He was named MVP and Rookie of the Year in his first year and went on to win All-Star, Gold Glove, and Silver Slugger honors. He finished his career as a 10-time All-Star, 10-time Gold Glove winner, and three-time Silver Slugger.

Since retiring, Ichiro has been active in promoting the game of baseball, serving as a special assistant to the president of the Seattle Mariners and teaching special lessons to amateur players in Japan during the off-season. He played his first friendly game against a high school girls’ team in 2021.

In her first tournament in 2021, Ichiro threw a nine-inning, 147-pitch complete game with four hits, 17 strikeouts, and no runs. Her fastball reached 139 mph. In the second friendly in 2022, Ichiro threw 131 pitches over nine innings, allowing two hits, 14 walks and one run.

“I’m worried, I haven’t even eaten…” The front desk is also shocked by KIA Kim Do-young’s four-month OUT, what to do with his 2024 plan

“The scouts couldn’t even eat, they dropped their spoons (when they heard the news).”

Infielder Kim Do-young, 20, the future and present of the KIA Tigers, is injured again. In the bottom of the 10th inning of the final game of the 2023 Asian Professional Baseball Championship against Japan at the Tokyo Dome in Japan on April 19, Kim hit an infield single with runners on first and second base. Kim attempted a head-first slide to first base, determined to stay alive.

The ending was devastating. Kia announced on Nov. 21 that Kim underwent a medical examination in Korea and was diagnosed with a torn medial collateral ligament of the left thumb’s metacarpophalangeal joint and an avulsion fracture. He will undergo ligament suture surgery on the 22nd. The rehabilitation period is expected to be about four months.굿모닝토토

Kim has already been injured three times since joining the team in 2022. On August 17, 2022, he injured his palm on a hit by Juan Lagares against the Gwangju SSG Landers and was sidelined for about a month. This season, he fractured his left metacarpal on April 2 against Incheon SSG. After taking about three months off, he actually started the season on June 23 against the Gwangju KT Wiz.

And this time, it was a four-month injury. Despite scientific analysis showing that a head-first slide to first base is slower than a sprint, players still often throw themselves to first base with the risk of injury. Moreover, KIA lost Chan-ho Park to injury on September 12 when he head-first slid into first base after hitting a triple against Daegu Samsung Electronics.

In addition to Park, the team also lost Na Sung-beom, Choi Hyung-woo, and Choi Won-joon to injuries in the last half of the season. But that was about a month ago, so they are already rehabbing. The players were seen weight training in Gwangju on KIA’s YouTube channel. At the very least, it looks like they’ll be ready for the 2024 season opener.

However, Kim’s four-month absence is a big blow for KIA. The 2024 season kicks off on March 24. That’s only four months from now. If Kim is young and recovers quickly, he could be back in time for next year’s opening game in a dramatic fashion.

However, in a worst-case scenario, he could miss the opening game. During his rehabilitation, he”ll be unable to hold the bat properly, which could slow down his progress. It”s clear that his preparation for the 2024 season will be hampered. His training could be reduced. 

He could find an alternative, such as Byun Woo-hyuk. But Kim has already become an irreplaceable option for the KIA infield and top of the order. The news also came as a shock to the front office a day before the second round of the draft on June 23. “The scouts were so surprised that they couldn’t even eat,” Shim Jae-hak said in a phone call on the 22nd. They dropped their spoons.”

Team manager Shim Jae-hak apparently heard about Kim’s injury while dining with scouts in preparation for the second round of the draft. “I think Do-young is seriously injured. I’m very worried about him. I hope he recovers quickly,” he said. It’s also a concern for coach Kim Jong-guk, who will be planning for the 2024 season. The good news is that he has plenty of time to prepare an alternative.

Seoul High School’s new head coach, Kim Dong-soo, made the final decision

The Seoul High School baseball team has named SBS Sports commentator Kim Dong-soo (55) as its new head coach.

The team announced that it held an open recruitment for a head coach (technically known as a head coach) to replace Aptive BC head coach Yoo Jung-min, who submitted his resignation in late October, and selected Kim Dong-soo as the new head coach as a result of the screening.레모나토토 도메인

Kim, who had emerged as a potential candidate for the Seoul Go job after Yoo’s resignation, was somewhat cautious at the time, saying, “I have a lot of things to think about.” However, after an interview process and a steering committee meeting, Kim was finally given the green light.

As a student at Seoul High School, Kim made a name for himself as a standout hitter and catcher, leading the team to the Cheongnyonggi championship. He continued to excel at Hanyang University, where he was selected by LG in the first round of the 1990 rookie draft and won the rookie championship.

Kim Dong-soo, who was part of LG’s championships in 1990 and 1994, won six Golden Gloves with the team before leaving for Samsung as a free agent. He also won one in the modern era, bringing his total to seven.

He played 20 seasons in the KBO, amassing 1,556 hits (batting average of .263), 202 home runs, and 871 RBIs in his career. Since his retirement, he has continued his coaching career, serving as second base coach and head of scouting since returning to LG. After his contract with LG expired, he worked as a commentator for SBS Sports and earned his stripes as a national team coach. He also assisted Ryu Jung-il as the national team coach at the APBC.

Now that the APBC is over, Kim is expected to form a new coaching staff and sign a formal coaching contract. The announcement of the appointment of coaches for each discipline has already been posted on the Seoul Go website.

Contrary to his reticent image, he is known to be a very intelligent coach, so it would be good to pay attention to the high school baseball version next season.
