LG Twins has a lot of Nexen Heroes graduates. There are veteran infielders Kim Min-seong and Seo Geon-chang and catcher Heo Do-hwan. In addition, Park Dong-won, who came to LG for a total of 6.5 billion won as a free agent, was added. These are all players who were with coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop, who was appointed by the year, during his Nexen days. Their skills also blossomed when they were coach Yeom.
Since 2013, 스포츠토토 when coach Yeom took over as manager of Nexen, Min-seong Kim has been hitting as a starting third baseman. For four years until 2016, he posted a batting average of .296, 60 home runs, and 310 RBIs. Seo Kun-chang was named MVP in 2014 with 201 hits. Heo Do-hwan also worked with Yeom in 2013 and 2014, and moved to Hanwha in 2015.
Park Dong-won served as the main catcher for the Heroes after Heo Do-hwan transferred.
Although coach Yeom worked as a front desk and coach at LG, he did not meet the players as a manager, so tips from players from Nexen who know Yeom’s style would be helpful.
Park Dong-won said, “The coach is meticulous and always has a lot of interest in the players, so he is watching. He should not think of cheating on the coach and do it honestly.”
He continued, “Because I worked with the director, I know his personality well.” “The director only said, ‘Be prepared well. I can tell,” he said.
We met again after 7 years since 2016. In 2014, I have a regretful memory of losing to the Samsung Lions after advancing to the Korean Series. Coach Yeom and Park Dong-won have a longing for their first championship. I hope that the first win will be LG’s first win in 29 years.
