Why did Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop pick Heo Gyeong-min (33) as the captain for the 2023 season among many players?
Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop announced at the Doosan Bears 41st anniversary ceremony held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 16th, “We have appointed Heo Gyeong-min as captain for the 2023 season.”
Doosan, who played the 2022 season under the Kim Jae-hwan captain system, decided to replace the captain with the appointment of Lee Seung-yeop as manager. Head coach Lee Seung-yeop thought of Heo Kyung-min as the next captain since last year’s Icheon finishing camp, and officially proposed the captaincy during an individual meeting with the player. 카지노
This change of captain was partly to ease the burden of Kim Jae-hwan, who was sluggish last year, but the command tower appreciated Heo Kyung-min’s mature mind more than anything else. Director Lee said, “Heo Gyeong-min is not quiet. He is a player who can lift the team spirit. He has leadership and team-first spirit here. Now he is old enough to make a claim,” he explained. This is why Heo Gyeong-min was selected as the new captain among candidates such as Yang Eui-ji, Hong Gun-hee, Su-bin Su, and Yang Seok-hwan.
As this is the first year of his debut as a leader, coach Lee gave a special meaning to the captaincy, which serves as a bridge between the coaching staff and the players. Of course, he expects a lot from the captain. Coach Lee said, “Baseball is a sport where the relationship between the coaching staff, players, and players can change depending on team performance over the course of a season.” Of course, the role of the coaching staff is also important, but the captain is a position to lead the players and think about how the team will go to a high place.”
