“Today, Moon Sang-cheol will start as the 6th batsman.”
Lee Kang-cheol, head coach of kt wiz, responded to a question about whether there would be any change in the starting batting order ahead of the home game against Kiwoom Heroes, a professional baseball team, to be held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 25th.
Moon Sang-cheol is a backup fielder who has only started 4 games this season. He primarily plays the designated hitter and first baseman.
When coach Lee Kang-cheol was asked why Sang-cheol Moon was included in the starting lineup, he suddenly started to bring up old stories.
“You know senior Kim Min-ho, who played for the Lotte Giants? He’s my (Dongguk) University senior. But, senior Kim Min-ho sent me a card every Christmas when he was a player.”
As the reporters tilted their heads, director Lee continued his story.
“Thank you. I hit so well when I met him. Once before the game, he hugged me before the start and thanked me for putting me in the mound today even though I’ve been in a slump lately. I was so excited…”
Director Lee tried all kinds of methods to catch Kim Min-ho. He changed his pitching stance and pitched by changing his main pitch.
However, the nemesis relationship was not easily broken.
Rather, director Lee suffered from mental problems. It wasn’t once or twice that he had a lot of complicated thoughts and his control faltered.
It wasn’t that the director couldn’t find the answer.
“After barely working hard, I found my weakness on my body. This worked. I thought I was done now. But senior Kim Min-ho retired the following year.”
Director Lee, who continued the story excitingly, opened his mouth to express the dejection he felt at the time.
After the story,먹튀검증 coach Lee laughed and said, “This is the reason why Sang-cheol Moon is selected today.”
On this day, Moon Sang-cheol showed a strong side against An Woo-jin, Kiwoom’s starting pitcher and one of the best pitchers in the league.
He went 3-for-4 with 1 home run and 2 RBI last season.
Director Lee smiled, saying, “Ahn Woo-jin will definitely be conscious of Moon Sang-cheol.”
