Doosan head coach Lee Seung-yeop gets full support from his ‘mentor’.
The Doosan Bears lost six coaches after last year’s season. Kim Joo-chan, assistant first base coach, Ko Young-min, first base coach, Jeong Soo-sung, first base coach, Jeong Jae-hoon, second base coach, Kim Woo-seok, second base coach, and Yoo Jae-shin, second base coach, left for new teams.
Kim Joo-chan, Ko Young-min, and Yoo Jae-shin joined the Lotte Giants under former Doosan manager Kim Tae-hyung, while Jung Jae-hoon became the first-team pitching coach for the KIA Tigers. Kim Woo-seok, who was well-regarded for his defense, moved to the Hanwha Eagles as a defensive coach. Jung Soo-sung will be coaching the LG Twins.
After finishing the 2022 season in ninth place, Doosan parted ways with Kim Tae-hyung, who led the team for eight years, and hired Lee Seung-yeop. 온라인카지노 The team finished the regular season in fifth place, qualifying for the fall baseball season once again, but it’s a new ballgame once again.
Before the final camp
Lee said, “It’s natural to leave in professional life. Some people will come in as coaches, and some positions will change.” “We’re not trying to finish fifth. We want to play well, play high, and be satisfied. (The new coaches) have to be helpful and have a good chemistry. We’re going to think about it carefully and finalize the coaching staff.”
The new coaching staff has also been outlined. Doosan hired off-season pitching coach Cho Woong-chun, as well as coaches Park Heung-sik, Jo In-sung, and Kim Dong-han.

The Futures (second team) will be led by Lee Jung-hoon, with pitching coaches Kwon Myung-chul, Kim Sang-jin, and Kim Ji-yong, hitting coach Lee Do-hyung, fielding coach Kang Seok-cheon, offense and infield coach Kim Dong-han, 실시간 바카라사이트 and battery coach Kim Jin-soo.
Rehabilitation and residuals will be handled by coaches Cho In-sung, Chae Full-yeom, and Cho Kyung-taek, with support from training coaches Lee Kwang-woo and Lee Deok-hyun.
