KT Wiz coach Kang-cheol Lee visited to check the KIA Tigers pitchers participating in the World Baseball Classic (WBC).

Coach Lee Kang-cheol visited the KIA spring camp held at the Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona, on the 7th (hereafter Korean time). On this day, KIA pitched in the bullpen with Yang Hyeon-jong and Lee Eui-ri, who are participating as WBC national representatives.

KIA and KT are holding a spring camp together at Kino Sports Complex. KIA is using the main stadium and KT is using the right next door stadium. So, it takes about 5 minutes on foot to go from the KT training ground to the KIA training ground. 먹튀검증

Coach Lee Kang-cheol, who also serves as the coach of the WBC national team, visited the KIA bullpen where Yang Hyeon-jong and Lee Eui-ri were throwing balls before KT training started in earnest with general manager Na Na-hyun. Coach Lee Kang-cheol, who happened to meet with KIA general manager Jang Jeong-seok, who was watching the pitchers pitch, said, “I did not come to spy on KIA. Yang Hyeon-jong and Lee Eui-ri said they were pitching in the bullpen, so I came to confirm it as the national team coach,” he laughed.

Director Lee Kang-cheol also briefly talked with Yang Hyeon-jong, who finished bullpen pitching. Yang Hyeon-jong said, “I threw the ball early because I was going to practice on the 17th,” and coach Lee Kang-cheol asked, “Wasn’t it the second game?” Yang Hyeon-jong replied, “Coach Young-soo Bae said that pitchers in Arizona will pitch in the first practice game,” and coach Kang-cheol Lee laughed, saying, “Because I am a veteran pitcher, I knew I would throw late.”

Yang Hyeon-jong threw the ball from the bullpen for the first time that day. Yang Hyeon-jong, who threw 30 pitches, said, “I threw well without any pain. It was his first bullpen pitching, so he pitched with attention to balance, and the result was good. Overall, he seems to be going as prepared. He threw a fastball, slider, curve, and changeup with the WBC-approved pitches. It’s the same ball he used in the major leagues, so there’s no big difference, but it’s a little awkward because it’s been a while since I’ve thrown it. He can adapt as he throws, so he doesn’t really care.”

Eui-ri Lee said, “I pitched in the bullpen for the second time, and I think I am in good overall condition. He threw a total of 47 pitches and I threw all of my pitches (fastball, slider, curveball, changeup). Compared to the last pitching, the WBC official ball felt a bit slippery. There was no great discomfort. He plans to join the national team after pitching 2-3 times in the bullpen. I will make sure he joins the national team in the best condition.”

At KT, So-Jun Sohn and Young-Pyo Koh, who are on the WBC team, pitched in the bullpen. Manager Lee Kang-cheol watched the pitchers’ balls closely, especially when So-Jun Sohn threw the ball, he moved directly behind the catcher and looked at So-Jun Sohn’s pitch. Park Byung-ho, who briefly entered the plate and looked at So-Jun’s pitch, nodded his head and said “I like it” to manager Lee Kang-cheol.
