LG won the regular season championship for the first time in 29 years. However, LG remains the final true test stand. It’s a Korean series. The fact that LG ended its relationship with its former manager, who had achieved good results over the past two years, and joined hands with manager Yeom Kyung-yeop means that it must win the Korean Series unconditionally.토토사이트
The reason LG chose director Yeom Kyung-yeop is because there is no one in the industry who has experienced success and failure in various positions and positions as much as director Yeom Kyung-yeop. Director Yeom’s brilliant past is famous. He served as an operations team employee, operations team leader, foreign scout, and defense coach at LG, and debuted as a manager after serving as a coach at Kiwoom. He later set a record by being promoted to general manager at SK and then taking on the role of manager.
After he left SK, he worked in various positions at KBO. He served as KBO technical chairman and commentator at KBS N Sports for one year. Baseball player Yeom Kyung-yeop grew up at LG, was recognized for his extraordinary ability at Kiwoom, and experienced both glory and frustration at SK. After winning the championship as general manager in 2018, he suffered ‘a record-breaking collapse’ as manager in 2019.
If LG wins the Korean Series this year, it will be baseball player Yeom Kyung-yeop’s ‘era of greatest happiness’. And set another record. In the KBO League, he is the second baseball player to win the Korean Series as both a manager and a top-ranking member of the front office after former manager and president Kim Eung-ryong.
Former CEO Kim Eung-ryong led the Korean Series to a total of 10 wins, including 9 times with Haitai and once with Samsung. After the 2004 season, he became the president of Samsung and lived in the highest level of the front office for six years from 2005 to 2010. Samsung won the Korean Series in 2005 and 2006, so former President Kim has won exactly 12 times. He is the only baseball player who has experienced winning the Korean Series as a manager and president, which is difficult to come back to in the KBO league.
Manager Yeom is trying to add another example of the manager and the top level of the front office winning the Korean Series again in 17 years since 2006. For the first time, both manager and general manager will attempt to win the Korean Series. The number of players and general managers in the KBO League has increased, and in the meantime, baseball players who have served as both managers and general managers have emerged.
Although not many, SPOTV commentator Yang Sang-moon has served as both a coach and general manager at LG, and former KIA general manager Jang Jeong-seok is also a former coach at Kiwoom. Neither the coach nor the general manager could win the Korean Series. Since there are many general managers who were players, there are baseball players who have won the Korean Series as both players and general managers, but there are very few baseball players who have won the Korean Series as president and manager or general manager and manager.
Meanwhile, LG general manager Cha Myeong-seok has experience as a pitching coach. However, he never won a championship during his time as a coach, so if he wins this year, he will be recorded as a baseball player who won as both a player and general manager. General manager Cha Myeong-seok was a pitcher for LG when they won the combined championship in 1994.
