The last season before advancing to ML… Lee Jung-hoo only thinks of winning more than himself
“There is nothing special about this season. There are no personal goals.”
Lee Jeong-hoo (25, Kiwoom Heroes) attended the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League Media Day’ held at Grand Hyatt Seoul, Hannam-dong, Yongsan-gu, Seoul on the 30th. Later, after the media day official interview, he met with reporters and expressed his thoughts on the 2023 season, which may be the last in the KBO league.
After the 2023 season ends, Lee Jung-hoo will start the 메이저사이트major league posting system (private competitive bidding). Although the results cannot be guaranteed, the possibility of overseas expansion is increasing as it is receiving high attention from local media and local scouts in the United States.
Regarding 2023, which may be the last year, Lee Jung-hoo said, “There is nothing special about this season. There is no personal goal. The attitude and values toward the team are geared towards winning.”
He added, “At the same time as the opening, there will be a lot of really hard things to do in 144 games. It may not always be good, but if you look at one goal and work hard together, you will be able to reach the goal of winning. I will run hard after seeing the win.”
He picked 5th starter Jang Jae-young (21), infielder Song Seong-moon (27), and outfielder Lim Ji-yeol (28) as his expected teammates. “There are many players who are considered key points, but I hope Jang Jae-young will throw really well as a 5th starter. He showed a good performance in Geelong Korea in the winter. it does,” he said.
Lastly, Lee Jung-hoo promised that he would like romantic baseball, but he would show it in terms of grades.
“Last year, we had good results, but as a result, we came in second. In the end, I think it is meaningless if we don’t win the championship,” he said. If you give it, you can finish the regular season with 1st place and play the Korean Series without having to play many games. This year, romantic baseball is good, but I will show the fans with unconditional grades. It will be really difficult, but I will only look at one goal and work with all the team members. I want to run,” he said vigorously.
