“Japanese players practice a lot.”
Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop spent eight years from 2004 to 2011 with the Chiba Lotte Marines, Yomiuri Giants, and Orix Papaloes. During his Yomiuri days in 2006, he hit 41 homers and played an active role as the 4th hitter, and also ate bread wet with tears in the 2nd team.
Coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “It has been about 12 years since I left Japan, ahead of the Gwangju KIA match on the 18th. Even when I was playing, Japanese baseball was not easy.” Japan is on a winning streak in this WBC and is challenging to regain the top spot for the first time in 14 years since the 2009 tournament. In particular, coach Lee said, “The pitching ability is the best in other countries. A near-perfect team.”
What’s interesting is that there aren’t that many players with very good hardware in Japan. Like Masataka Yoshida, who moved to the Boston Red Sox this winter, hitters who hit 20 to 30 home runs are not very tall or bulky. The same is true of Japanese pitchers who laugh at 155 km.
Regarding this, coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “Japanese players practice a lot.” Of course, he said that it is difficult to explain exactly why Japanese baseball has widened the gap with Korean baseball 12 years after he left Japan. However, he said it was clear that Japan’s amount of training and details of training were great.
Coach Lee said, “I felt it was really great while watching the training method, details and game. He looked at the WBC this time and felt he was getting better. As a Korean baseball player, I am upset that the gap is widening, but I have to improve what needs to be improved and accept what I can accept. He really has to work a lot to turn the fan heart that the baseball world has lost.”
It is rumored that coach Lee’s training at Sydney Spring Camp in Australia was considerable. He said, “Our players also train a lot.” It is different even if a player who has turned the bat a lot turns the bat.”
It is the theory that sweat does not betray.먹튀검증 Director Lee said, “We need to take a slightly different approach to practice. I’m not in a position to say what’s good and what’s bad. Our baseball world must work together.” If Director Lee’s Doosan makes a sensation this year, there is a possibility that the recent trend that emphasizes rest will change.
Still, Lee was confident that Korean baseball would not die like this. “There are good days and there are bad days. Didn’t Korea also win the Olympic gold medal and Premier 12 in the past? Right now, we are getting scolded a lot, but if we do our best in each position, another good day will come.”
