“Even if I can’t play at least one game in 144 games (laughs)…”
Doosan Bears set out for a new start with a ‘novice coach’. Director Lee Seung-yeop (47) erases ‘Ilhee Ilbi’ to the extent that it is hard to believe that this is his first leadership experience.
Coach Lee Seung-yeop mentioned the players’ ‘failure’ ahead of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO league home game against the NC Dinos at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 5th.
The previous day, Doosan won 1-0 thanks to Kim In-tae’s final RBI double at the end of the 8th inning. First base runner Yang Eui-ji got off to a quick start, and Kim In-tae also induced a mistake by the opponent’s center fielder by hitting a ball that cut through the middle right.토토사이트
Although he was the main character of the final stroke, Kim In-tae did not properly execute the strategy in the previous at-bat. At the end of the fourth inning, Kim Jae-hwan’s double and Yang Eui-ji’s walk resulted in a safe bunt slash at first and second base. However, as he became a mediocre right fielder, he failed to make a base hit. Then, at the end of the 6th inning, at the first base, the bunt ball fell vaguely, so both himself and the runner were out. Kim In-tae himself confessed after the game, “I felt very sorry for not being able to carry out the two strategies properly.”
Also, Lee Yu-chan, who came out as the ninth batter, also failed to successfully steal second base even after hitting a hit at the bottom of the 5th inning. I went to the video review, but the verdict was not overturned. The golden chance for the lead batter to get on base was lost in vain.
However, Lee praised Lee Yu-chan’s failure to steal, saying, “He said he did well.” He said, “You have to run and be out and be safe so you can feel that ‘You started well or you were late’.” He continued, “I couldn’t do that in the demonstration game, but for the mid-to-late season, I have to show much more active base running, so I order you to be active, bold, and confident.”
At the same time, coach Lee said, “A mistake can be made at any time,” and asserted, “You just have to work hard and prepare so that you don’t make a mistake next time. Regarding Kim In-tae’s bunt failure and Lee Yu-chan’s run the day before, he said, “During the coach meeting, I said, ‘Never reprimand the players.'”
Coach Lee insisted that it was the fault of the coaching staff, including himself. He said, “There is such a mistake because the coaches did not allow a little more variety of practice,” he said. He said, “Anyone can make mistakes. You can make bigger mistakes too.”
Director Lee’s mindset is not easy to have as a novice director. In particular, since coach Lee did not lead a professional coaching life after retiring in 2017, there was a possibility that he would be more comfortable in that he had little experience. But he doesn’t take the blame for a game or two, Rather, I trusted the players. In the game on the 5th, Kim In-tae and Lee Yu-chan were named in the starting lineup.
This was also seen in mound operation. Finisher Hong Kun-hee took the mound in the first round of the ninth inning when the team was leading 9-8 in the opening match against Lotte on the 1st. However, he recorded a blown save with a walk, wild throw, and sacrifice bunt, and Ahn Kwon-soo hit a triple from 1 out and 3 base. However, coach Lee believed in Hong Kun-hee, and he took the mound in the 9th inning on the 4th and earned a save with a three-way strike.
Coach Lee, who firmly said, “Hong Geon-hee is the finisher,” said, “I can’t take it out just because I failed once, and I was in a slump in an important situation before the opening, so I thought I would have fallen into a more slump if I hadn’t put it in that situation (lead by one point in the 4th game). do,” he said.
In fact, coach Lee showed a sober appearance even during his exhibition game period. He said, “(Young players) have a short time, but you have to show concentration. If you can’t show it here, it’s hard to go together.” However, as the first team entry is decided, he is giving the players confidence.
