LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop is famous for being the commander who cares about the players winning titles. It was the same in Nexen (currently Kiwoom) and SK (currently SSG), and it is the same in LG this season.
Under coach Yeom Kyung-yeop, many players won individual titles. At Nexen, home run king Park Byeong-ho, batting champion Seo Geon-chang, save king Son Seung-rak and Kim Se-hyeon, hold king Han Hyeon-hee, and rookie king Shin Jae-young received awards. In SK, Ha Jae-hoon, the king of saves, was produced.메이저놀이터
Coach Yeom is a style that encourages players to intentionally win individual titles. Winning individual titles is as important as team victory and performance. However, it does not mean that the individual is prioritized over the team. He believes that the more competitive players there are, the stronger the team.
Director Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “I hope that our team will have a lot of individual title holders. That is our team’s value and future. I think it’s an asset that can secure a lot of fans.”
Currently, LG has two players moving closer to the title. Hong Chang-ki and Shin Min-jae.
Hong Chang-ki is recording a batting average of 0.332, 96 hits and 34 RBIs with an on-base percentage of 0.449 in 77 games this season. His on-base percentage ranks first in the league and his batting average ranks second.
Shin Min-jae, who took off as the starting second baseman under the trust of manager Yeom Gyeong-yeop, is recording a batting average of 0.341, 5 RBIs, 24 points and 21 stolen bases in 63 games.
With Kim Hye-seong (Kiwoom), he is running for first place in the league in stolen bases by two cars. Since Kim Hye-seong is scheduled to participate in the Hangzhou Asian Games, there is a high possibility that Shin Min-jae will win the stealing title. If you go at your current pace.
Manager Yeom said, “I hope to receive a lot. I will actively push Shin Min-jae to become the king of stolen bases. The opportunity has come.” If confidence builds up through experience, players like Min-jae will be created. I believe that next year can be better.”
