Recalling the undefeated 99 Romaire-Davis who visited the Doosan camp
“He was a friend who could never tolerate taking things lightly. It made me feel that a foreign player could have a big impact on the team atmosphere.”
Koo Dae-seong (54), who lives in Australia and is invincible, watched the morning and afternoon training of the Doosan Bears, who had a spring camp in Blacktown, Sydney on the 8th. He visited the Doosan Camp for the second time following the first day of the camp, had a short talk with coach Lee Seung-yeop (47), and enjoyed watching young pitchers pitching bullpen and live pitching with a happy expression.
Perhaps because he himself was a lefty legend representing Korean professional baseball, Choi Seung-yong (22) and Lee Byung-hun (20), who are proud of Doosan, looked more closely than other pitchers when they threw the ball. In the case of Lee Byung-hun, he had the good fortune to shake hands with Goo Dae-sung and receive encouragement from director Lee.
When foreign pitcher Raul Alcantara (31), who returned to the KBO League after two years, was pitching in the bullpen, he asked the on-site reporters, “Does the KBO League still have a high percentage of foreign players?”
Koo Dae-seong said, “Because baseball is a team sport, only one or two players can’t get good results.” There are cases where it can have an impact. Roman language was like that,” he said, referring to a friend of memories he played with in the past.
Dan Romanier (58) is a foreign hitter who played for Hanwha from 1999 to 2000 and LG in 2001. In the 1999 season, which was the first year on the Korean stage, batting average of 0.292, 45 homers, 109 RBIs, 6 steals, and OPS of 1.031, leading Hanwha to win the first Korean Series and winning the Golden Glove in the designated hitter category, he is establishing himself as an indispensable player in Eagles history.
Koo Dae-seong explains that Romyer’s work ethic as a professional player was just as good as his excellent batting skills. Although he is a foreign player, he recalled that he even acted as a kind of ‘discipline leader’ among his teammates. 메이저놀이터
Koo Dae-seong said, “I couldn’t stand the Roman language if the domestic players didn’t move properly during training. Whenever that happened, I set the mood by shouting bitterly.” . The atmosphere of the team was firmly captured,” he explained.
Regarding Jay Davis (54), who played 7 seasons in Hanwha alone, he praised him, saying, “He was one of the best outfield defensive skills among KBO’s all-time center fielders.”
Davis also played a major role in the 1999 season with a batting average of 0.328, 30 homers, 106 RBIs and 35 steals, playing a decisive role in Hanwha’s victory. Koo Dae-sung was not as serious as Roman Ear, but he was always remembered as a player who did his part.
Koo Dae-sung laughed, saying, “Davis was, to say the least, a very quick-witted friend, and he was good at grasping the atmosphere.” After laughing, he said, “It was good to play, but the center field defense was the best in the league along with Lee Byeong-gyu and Jeong Su-geun at the time. There was fighting, and the team It helped,” he recalled.
