Many of the national team’s main lineup are left-handed hitters. In particular, the main outfield line is expected to consist of left-handed hitters such as Lee Jung-hoo (Kiwoom Heroes), Kim Hyun-soo (LG Twins), and Na Seong-beom (KIA Tigers)바카라.

In order for the batting line to have cohesion, right-handed hitters are desperately needed. If Choi Jeong, Park Byeong-ho, and Yang Eui-ji, who have long hitting power, are silent, they can have a tough match.

After finishing the 2023 season, Lee Jung-hoo, who is aiming to advance to the American professional baseball major league (MLB), went to the United States in December of last year and trained with personal coach Choi Won-je in Los Angeles.

Manager Kim Kyung-moon said, “Lee Jung-hoo changed his batting form to be concise to cope with the fast balls of American pitchers.”
