’25 years old.’
This is the age of Lee Jeong-hoo, the ‘grandson of the wind’ who took over as the new captain of Kiwoom Heroes. Even at such a young age, his leadership is recognized, and his full trust continues. Lee Jung-hoo is determined to do everything in his power to win the team’s first championship this season. He plans to win the championship and now aim to advance to the major leagues (MLB).
On the 20th, Kiwoom announced that “Lee Jung-hoo was appointed as the new captain to lead the 2023 season team.” Kiwoom coach Hong Won-ki asked Lee Jung-hoo to captain the team this season in a meeting earlier this month, and Lee Jung-hoo accepted it.
Lee Jung-hoo said, “Our team has a lot of young players. I think the reason why the coach entrusted me with the captaincy was to help young players adapt to the profession and help them when they are in difficult or difficult situations. In a good atmosphere, I will do my best to help the team rise to a higher level.” 헤라카지노
Claims in the 20s are rare. It is usually played by veteran players in their 30s. However, Lee Jung-hoo is a high-level player who has accumulated many achievements in the KBO league at the age of mid-20s. He also has a lot of experience. He stood tall as the best hitter in the KBO League and won the league MVP last year.
Lee Jung-hoo now aims to win this season, which can be the last journey with Kiwoom before advancing to the major leagues. The only thing Lee Jung-hoo hasn’t achieved in the six years since joining the club is winning. Kiwoom advanced to the postseason for five consecutive years from 2018 to last year with Lee Jung-hoo’s performance. During this period, he made it to the Korean Series twice, but both finished runner-up, swallowing his regrets. For Lee Jung-hoo, if he just wins, it’s a perfect situation.
Lee Jung-hoo also performed tremendously last year. He ranked first in the regular league in batting average, hits, runs batted in, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage. His postseason also showed excellent batting feel.
Lee Jung-hoo has expressed his aspirations, saying, “I want to win the Korean Series before advancing to the major leagues.” After this season, he will challenge the major league through the posting system. The Kiwoom club also agreed to this.
Lee Jung-hoo is currently undergoing individual training in the United States. When the Kiwoom team arrives in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA, the site of the spring camp at the end of this month, he will join immediately. Lee Jung-hoo will participate as a national team in the World Baseball Classic (WBC), which will be held in March. Attention is focusing on how Lee Jung-hoo, who is aiming to advance to the major leagues, will perform in the WBC. It is noteworthy whether he will make a proper ‘snow stamp’ on major league clubs.
