Personal training accompanied by MVP. It was a valuable time for Lee Eui-ri (21, KIA Tigers) besides exercising.
Lee Eui-ri and Lee Jung-hoo departed for Arizona in the United States in early January. They started individual training together ahead of the full-scale spring camp.
Lee Jung-hoo played an active part as the best hitter in the KBO League last year. He ranked first in batting average, hits, RBIs, slugging percentage, and on-base percentage, and won 5 batting crowns, and was named regular season MVP 6 years after his debut.
Eui-ri Lee, who spent the second year last year, also took the stage of growth. He went 4-5 with an ERA of 3.61 in his first year, but last year he appeared in 29 games and went 10-10 with an ERA of 3.86, achieving double-digit wins in his debut. He is evaluated as the left-handed ace of the next KIA following the lineage of Yang Hyeon-jong.
It may not have been 100% the same as pitcher Eui-ri Lee’s training for ‘batter’ Lee Jung-hoo, but there were many factors that could be helpful in the overall preparation process and life.
What left a deep impression on Lee Eui-ri was the conversation with Lee Jung-hoo as a person, not as a baseball player. Lee Eui-ri said, “In January, I exercised as if preparing for a game,” and said, “Now (Lee) Jung-hoo hyung has also become the team captain. So, as a person, I said that I have to show a little better. About the personality part I think we talked a lot,” he explained.
Lee Jung-hoo has been the captain of Kiwoom this season. Lee Jung-hoo can advance to the major leagues with the posting system after this season. Although the evaluation of major league clubs is somewhat over, it is important to perform well this season in order to receive even a little better evaluation. It was a time when individual performance was more important than ever for Lee Jung-hoo, but he readily accepted the will to lead the team as captain.
Meanwhile, Lee Eui-ri and Lee Jung-hoo, who were selected for the World Baseball Classic (WBC) team, will train at Gocheok Dome on the 2nd and leave for Japan on the 4th. With two inspections scheduled in Japan, the team will play its first game against the Australian national team on the 9th. 토토사이트
The WBC official ball was a bit slippery, and pitchers had a hard time improving their condition because Arizona, the U.S. national team’s camp, had an abnormal climate with rain and low temperatures.
Lee Eui-ri said, “Going to the national team is half excitement and half excitement.” “In the end, rather than pitching in the bullpen, I felt a lot better playing catch.” “I think I need to train in Gocheok now. He said, “He talked about the final check ahead of the WBC showdown.
