I talk to the coaching staff to fill in these parts of the finish camp, and I fill in the general part, such as the training direction.”

The overall operation of the team is principled, independent and responsible. I have three words and I intend to do it with the players. The principle is the principle of playing the game, the management, and the direction of the team with the players. Only then do I think it is fair and just. I think team management is correct when the same benefits and punishments are applied to good players and bad players.

It is important that baseball comes first and let them know how important baseball is and how it can bring them happiness.

What has changed is that there was a section that was impatient in terms of management, and because of that impatience, there were difficulties in appointing players from among a limited number of people. In the end various experiences made me think about why I was good when I was good. It was time to learn what I liked from the manual and fix the parts I didn’t like so I could improve a little more. With this, I plan to take action next season.”

▲ LG foreign batters were not good What kind of batters are good?
