I’m intrigued by the commander tactics matchup between ‘Salty’ and ‘Steel magic’. It’s a shallow matchup.
It was 10 years ago. LG manager Yoon Kyung-yeop (55) and KT manager Lee Kang-chul (57), who came together as managers and head coaches at Mokdong Stadium in Seoul in the 2013 season, will face off for the Korean Series championship trophy 10 years later.
On October 10, 2012, Yeom was appointed as the head coach of Nexen. He then hired Lee Kang-cheol, the former pitching coach of KIA, as his head coach. From 2013 to 2016, Yeom and Lee led Nexen to the postseason for four consecutive seasons. In 2014, they finished as runners-up in the Korean Series.
Yeom and Lee played together at Gwangju First High School. 카지노사이트 Lee is two years his senior. When Yeom first took the helm 10 years ago, he asked Lee, a pitching specialist, to join him as an assistant coach. After four years together, they went their separate ways.
After the 2016 season, Yeom stepped down as head coach of Nexen
Lee also left Nexen. Seven years have passed since then. A head-to-head matchup in the Korean Series was set.
Yeom went on to become the head coach of SK, where he spent 2017 and 2018, and won the Korean Series as head coach in 2018. He returned to the field in 2019 as SK’s manager and led the team to the top of the standings until the end of the regular season, when they tied with Doosan in the final game. SK finished second in the standings, trailing Doosan by a game.
The team missed the playoffs, and the following year, in 2020, Yeom collapsed during a game due to the stress of poor performance and stepped down due to health issues.
After two years away from the field as a trainee with the San Diego Padres and a broadcast commentator, Yeom returned to LG last fall. He led LG to its first regular-season title in 29 years, since 1994. Now all that’s left is the overall title.
Lee took over as Doosan’s second-team coach in 2017 and became the first-team coach in 2018, assisting then-Doosan manager Kim Tae-hyung. After the 2018 season, Lee took over as head coach of KT.
In his first year as head coach, in the 2019 season, he led KT to a winning percentage of 5% for the first time. The team finished sixth in the standings. In 2020, he led KT to its first-ever postseason appearance with a second-place finish in the regular season.
In 2021, he won the regular season title by defeating Samsung in a tiebreaker and won KT’s first Korean Series title
Last year, the team finished fourth and missed the semifinals, and this year, after finishing second in the regular season, they qualified for the postseason and reached the Korean Series for the second time in two years.
KT clinched a spot in the Korean Series with a 3-2 comeback win in Game 5 of the playoffs against NC at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on Friday, improving its series record to 3-2.
In the regular season, KT, which was in last place in early June, had a magical journey to finish the season in second place, miraculously improving its win-loss margin from -14 to +17. The playoffs were a condensed version of the regular season, with the team dropping games one and two.
KT made it to the Korean Series for the second time in two years with a miraculous reverse sweep. The ‘W-L’ record is the third-best in playoff history. After Hyundai in 1996 and SK in 2009, KT is the first team in 14 years to pull off a miracle reverse.
In this playoffs, the team that scored first in Games 1 through 4 won.
In Game 5, KT was down 0-2 before rallying to win 3-2. Game 5 was dramatic until the very end.
Upon being selected as KT’s opponent for the Korean Series, Yeom said, “We spent three weeks after the regular season checking the team’s needs. “Our players’ desire to win is stronger than ever, so we expect them to perform well in the Korean Series against KT as we have prepared for it,” he said.
“We will do our best to entertain our fans with the result that many of them have been hoping for in the Korean Series, which is the last game of the season,” he said.
After qualifying for the Korean Series on Friday, Lee Kang-cheol said, “Benjamin kept us to a minimum and gave us a chance to keep up with the game. It was a close game, but we tied the game with one chance and took the lead in the next inning. “We came back from the bottom of the regular season,” said Son Dong-hyun and Park Young-hyun. “We lost two straight in the playoffs. We lost two games in a row in the playoffs, but I didn’t think it would be over. I thought we had a chance to win Games 4 and 5 if we took Game 3, and (in Game 3) Ko Young-pyo took advantage of the opportunity.”
“I think we need to think about the starting rotation. We have to prepare from now on.”
