The Korean women’s national baseball team, led by former Lotte-LG manager Yang Sang-moon, is in the midst of a week-long intensive training camp in Changwon, Gyeongsangnam-do.

“It’s the first time we’ve been together for this long,” said Shin Noo-ri, the team’s eldest sister and outfielder. It’s definitely an environment where we can focus on baseball, so I think it’s a good time to fill in the gaps, whether it’s baseball or strength training.”

With heavy rains across the country, Changwon was no exception. The team was scheduled to play a friendly game against Changmiya, a women’s social baseball team based in Changwon, on the 16th, but the game was cancelled due to incessant rain.

National team outfielder Yang Seo-jin said, “It was great to see Lee Dae-ho, whom I have always admired, in person, and he explained his unique hitting know-how in a way that was easy to understand. He explained his batting stance, the timing of hitting the ball, and what he does when he plays. He said a lot of good things, so it was a meaningful time,” she smiled.

Outfielder Shin No-ri is a long-time Lotte Giants fan. He finally met Lee Dae-ho not as a fan but as a national team player. “It was very exciting and nice to receive one-point instruction directly from the ‘No. 4 hitter of Joseon’ whom I have been watching for more than 10 years, and to see Lee Dae-ho bat up close,” he smiles.

“Lee Dae-ho answered each of the players’ questions and gave them enthusiastic guidance by demonstrating with his body, and he also advised them that their batting point was too far forward, so if they pulled it back a little more, they could hit the ball the way they wanted,” said Shin Noo-ri.
