“Special, but not special.”
Samsung Koo Ja-wook (30) met with ‘Hero’ Lee Seung-yeop (47). This time it’s the ‘enemy’. As a manager, I came to Daegu to lead Doosan and stick with Samsung. It was awkward. That’s it. All you want is victory actually won
In the 2023 KBO League regular season match against Doosan held at Daegu Samsung Lions Park on the 26th, Samsung won 1-0 through starter David Buchanan’s strong pitching and Koo Ja-wook’s final solo shot. It’s a 4-game losing streak.
Of course, the interest is the visit of director Lee Seung-yeop. He was a Samsung franchise star, and now he came to Daegu as the head of Doosan. As the match on the 25th was canceled due to rain, the 26th became the first match. And Samsung laughed.
Ja-wook Koo, who we met on the 26th, said, “I said hello on the way home yesterday (25th). He only said hello. ‘Don’t get hurt and do well’, he encouraged me. It was embarrassing to see it for the first time in a long time. I almost called him ‘Senior’ without even realizing it,” he said with a smile.
Koo Ja-wook and manager Lee Seung-yeop played together for three years from 2015 to 2017. Ja-wook Koo debuted in the first team in 2015, and coach Seung-yeop Lee retired after the 2017 season.
Koo Ja-wook was attached to director Lee Seung-yeop. In particular, coach Lee Seung-yeop gave Koo Ja-wook a lot of advice when he was watching first base. He emphasized, “We have to catch difficult things without difficulty so that fielders can throw comfortably.”
Director Lee Seung-yeop took good care of his 17-year-old junior, the age of his nephew. Ja-wook Koo also treated the senior president respectfully and got along well with him.
Time passed and I met as a Samsung player and Doosan coach. Director Lee Seung-yeop’s first visit to Daegu made a lot of headlines, but because of his close friendship, interest in Koo Ja-wook is also high. However, Ja-wook Koo remained calm.
Ja-wook Koo said, “I am happy to be back at the baseball field. I think the fans will be happy too. I like it when I see it at the baseball field. It was cool to see him in the uniform. But a game is a game. I want to give victory to our manager Park Jin-man.”
“I am very interested, but in the end it is the same game. He said, ‘I want to do better,’ but don’t players always want to do well? Special, but not special. I will do my best in the game. He has to win the game,” he stressed.
In addition, Ja-wook Koo said, “I am the Samsung Lions, but I think I talk more about the Doosan coaches and coaches. I’m sorry to our coaches and coaches. I like our coach and coaching staff better.”
It’s a natural reaction. Director Lee Seung-yeop also said, “There is nothing different. I just came to Daegu for an away game. I really have no idea. Haven’t you adjusted to Doosan now? I was just thinking about the game. It’s time to be cool,” he drew a line.
It is no different than Ku Ja-wook. It’s true that it’s a special situation, but in the end, it’s one game out of 144 games in the season. game always. Not special.
In the end, the answer is ‘win’. It actually happened. Samsung laughed 1-0 as Koo Ja-wook fired a solo shot in the preemptive final. It’s a 4-game losing streak. “I want to present victory to coach Park Jin-man,” he said. made it a reality “I was on a losing streak, but it’s good that I stopped. Because I won the game today, I think I will be able to play the game with a little more comfort.”메이저놀이터
Coincidentally, Ja-wook Koo’s home run went in the direction of the Lee Seung-yeop mural on the right wall of Lions Park. Ja-wook Koo said, “More than half of my home runs go that way. Coincidentally, it happened again today. I couldn’t find the ball well at first. caught in the light I found it with a sense,” he said with a laugh.
Ja-wook Koo is clearly showing good form at the beginning of the season. He is producing 20 games, batting average of 0.359, 2 homers, 10 RBIs, 5 stolen bases, on-base percentage of 0.424, slugging percentage of 0.538, and OPS of 0.962. Batting average-on-base percentage-slugging percentage 3- A 4-5 hitter. It can be said to be the most ideal. He
is good at this, but Ja-wook Koo puts the team in front. Ja-wook Koo said, “Last week’s 6-game away game was a little difficult. Maybe it was because I went on base a lot, so my stamina dropped. Fatigue increased. My body.
“It’s heavy. But I have to play again anyway. I’ll manage it well.” I feel good because I think it’s good, but the team comes first. Team victory comes first.”
