A cruel fate has changed the positions of former and current coaches within a year.
Former LG Twins manager Ryu Ji-hyun recently signed a contract with KBSN Sports as a commentator. Director Ryu, who received a love call from a broadcasting company right after stepping down from his position as manager, accepted after much consideration, and in the new season, he came to the baseball field as a commentator. Former coach Ryu Ji-hyeon had only worked for one LG team from his days as a player to coaching. Since he retired as a player, he immediately became a coach and walked the path of a leader, so he only served at LG for nearly 30 years (?). He was like that, but now he is standing on the ground wearing a KBO pass as an affiliate other than ‘LG Man’. It’s a new challenge.
Coincidentally, he switched places with new manager Yeom Gyeong-yeop, who took over as LG command tower following director Ji-hyun Ryu. It’s not intentional, but the resulting appearance is like that. Director Yeom Gyeong-yeop worked as a commentator at the same broadcasting company until last season. As director Yeom returned to the field, a vacant position was created in the commentary staff, and this time, a new commentator named Ryu Ji-hyun, a former LG franchise star, joined.
A similar situation is the same for the Doosan Bears. Coach Lee Seung-yeop, who had been active in various broadcasting activities with SBS commentator until last season, has now been appointed to Doosan as the commanding tower. Since his player retirement, he has been away from the baseball field.
Doosan broke up with manager Kim Tae-hyung, who had been together for 8 years, advanced to the Korean Series for 7 consecutive years and won 3 championships, due to the end of the contract period. Since then, Doosan, which was looking for a candidate for a new head coach, picked Lee Seung-yeop, a former ‘Superstar’, as the next manager. 메이저사이트
Former coach Kim Tae-hyung, who took a break after a long time, also received a love call from the commentator as soon as he stepped down. Even when he was coaching Doosan, he was famous for his hot and outspoken volubility, so he was evaluated as optimal for relay broadcasting. Director Kim also accepted the position of commentator after much consideration. At SBS Sports, where manager Lee Seung-yeop was in charge of the commentary, former manager Kim’s position was prepared.
Coincidentally, it is an exchange of positions between current and former directors. They are former and current coaches of Doosan and LG, the ‘Jamsil rivals’, and they are also the teams that are attracting the most attention this season. In addition, since the former coaches have produced good results, the new coach starts with a name that can be burdensome. For fans looking forward to the opening of the 2023 season, one more interesting point of observation has increased.
