“Lee Joo-hyung will also come up once.”
LG coach Yeom Kyung-yeop conducts a ‘major tour (first team tour)’ to motivate and check the skills of prospects in the second group playing in the Futures League. It will start from the home game on the weekend of the 19th and 21st. The ‘Major Tour’ is a program that Yeom conducted during his past coaching days at Nexen and SK. Players from the 2nd team participate in 1st team training, where the 1st team coaches check their individual skills.
Coach Yeom mentioned an upcoming major tour in a press briefing at Jamsil Stadium on the 16th. Manager Yeom said, “I will start a major tour this weekend. The target is a player that the coaches of the 1st team want to see and a player recommended by the 2nd team development team. I call 2-3 people during the home game and train with them for three days.” said.
He continued, “When I go up, I come up with my personal chart. It contains what strengths and weaknesses and what points I want you to focus on. I watch from the side and leave data if there are areas to be corrected. When I go down to the 2nd group again, this is fine, and this needs to be supplemented. I will go down with a book on my back,” he explained.
It is not for promising players to vaguely play for the 2nd team, but for each individual to have a specific blueprint for the 1st team.
Director Yeom said, “Lee Joo-hyung, who flies around in the 2nd team, can also come up. Not this week, but he will come up once in a while. I will see what he defends and what needs to be supplemented.” Lee Joo-hyung, who was discharged at the end of February, is making a big success in 19 games in the Futures League with a batting average of .423 (22 hits in 52 at-bats), 1 home run, 10 RBIs, 10 walks, 7 strikeouts, an on-base percentage of .516, a slugging percentage of .673, and an OPS of 1.189.
It is connected to the finishing camp after the season and the spring camp next year. Director Yeom said, “(Major Tour) That way, you can do it a little easier during finishing training. You can know each other, fix and prepare in advance what needs to be corrected. That way, you can train up close at the finishing camp, go to spring camp, We can prepare for next season,” he said. 메이저놀이터
