‘Lee Seung-yeop mural’ is located above the right outfield stands of Daegu Samsung Lions Park.
Lee Seung-yeop in the picture is wearing a blue uniform.
On October 3, 2017, when ‘national hitter’ Lee Seung-yeop retired, Lee returned the ‘uniform’ to Samsung, and the Samsung club engraved ‘Lee Seung-yeop Mural’ on the home stadium. That’s how Lee Seung-yeop remained as a ‘eternal Samsung player’.
On April 25, 2023, professional baseball Samsung fans see coach Seung-yeop Lee wearing a Doosan Bears uniform and signing autographs at an away dugout.
Coach Lee Seung-yeop meets the Samsung Lions as enemies for the first time in Daegu. In the first base dugout, you can see the Samsung fans seated in the third base.
Even after his retirement, coach Lee Seung-yeop, who visited Lions Park as a commentator, KBO public relations ambassador, or Samsung fan, visits Daegu as the ‘Doosan Command Tower’.
Manager Lee Seung-yeop said, “Now I have to look at the nine professional baseball teams that Doosan is dealing with with the same perspective, but I think I will feel special emotions when playing against Samsung, where I spent my active years in Daegu.”
Head coach Lee Seung-yeop has already played 19 games wearing Doosan’s Bandalgom uniform. However, ‘Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop’ is still unfamiliar to Samsung fans.
Coach Lee Seung-yeop is the best hitter born in Korean baseball, which was called the ‘national hitter’ during his active career. He was also a symbol of ‘Daegu Baseball’.
He hit 467 home runs in a Samsung uniform.
He is the KBO’s career home run leader, and also holds the record for most home runs in a single season (56 in 2003).
He won the KBO Most Valuable Player (MVP) and Home Run King 5 times each, and the Golden Glove 10 times.
Even when manager Lee Seung-yeop was playing in Japan, Samsung fans called him ‘our player’.
Director Lee Seung-yeop, who has a strong Samsung color, started his leadership career at Doosan.
He said, “I am always grateful for the great love I received from Samsung. I want to repay the Samsung fans in any way.” said.
The ‘Daegu Expedition Day’, which must be experienced at least once, has dawned.
Almost all Korean professional baseball officials, as well as Samsung and Doosan, paid attention to ‘Director Lee Seung-yeop’s first Daegu expedition’ even before the start of the 2023 season.
Officials from both teams said, “It’s a game that will attract everyone’s attention.”
Doosan is cruising with 11 wins, 1 draw and 7 losses (0.611 win rate) at the beginning of the season and 3rd place. Coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “The current win-loss margin is +4, but I want to increase the number in the remaining games in April.”
Samsung needs a rebound.
Samsung has recently fallen into a quagmire of four consecutive losses, including being wiped out in three consecutive matches against the Gwangju KIA Tigers over the weekend.
The gap with the top ranks is not large, but you have to raise the ranking that fell to 9th place (7 wins, 12 losses) to escape the pressure that oppresses the squad.
Samsung coach Park Jin-man is also a former star player who shone in Korean professional baseball.
Director Park Jin-man earned the nickname “national shortstop” by playing for Hyundai Unicorns (1996-2004), Samsung (2005-2010), and SK Wyverns (2011-2015, current SSG Landers).
During his active career, manager Park Jin-man won five Golden Gloves.
Born in 1976, coach Seung-Yeop Lee and coach Jin-Man Park shared “moments of glory in Korean baseball,” such as winning a bronze medal at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, winning the 2006 World Baseball Classic (WBC) and the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Coach Park Jin-man started his leadership life at SK in 2016, right after his retirement, and from 2017, after receiving ‘directorship lessons’ as a defense coach, operations coach, 2nd team coach, and 1st team manager at Samsung, he took the 1st team baton this year. got it 스포츠토토
Manager Lee Seung-yeop and manager Park Jin-man said in unison, “The main characters are the players,” but they said they would be willing to bear the burden if their interest in themselves leads to a successful pro baseball game.
