Two winning coaches appeared in Tucson at once.
KT Wiz Futures coach Kim Ki-tae came to the Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona on the 10th (hereafter Korean time). Coach Kim walked around the stadium and carefully watched the players training.
Manager Kim, who worked as a batting coach for the Yomiuri Giants of the Japanese professional baseball league until last year, was appointed as KT Futures manager from this season and will be in charge of nurturing players. Coach Kim, who until recently led the Futures spring camp in Iksan, Jeonbuk, moved to Arizona on the 9th.
Coach Kim had already been appointed as the hitting coach of the World Baseball Classic national team before being appointed as KT Futures coach. He came to Arizona this time to join the WBC national team. It was a week before the national team convened in Tucson on the 15th.
KT coach Lee Kang-cheol said, “Among the players in Arizona’s first team camp, some of them will play for the Future Team during the season. Coach Kim had to come over early because he had to see the players.” 온라인바카라
Both are masters with experience winning teams. Coach Kim was the first to win. In 2017, coach Kim led the KIA Tigers to a combined championship in the regular season and the Korean Series. At the time, Lee coached the second team of the Doosan Bears, who lost to the KIA. After serving as Doosan head coach in 2018, Lee took over as KT manager in 2019 and created KT’s first 50% win rate in the first year, and in 2020, finished second in the regular season and made its first advance into fall baseball. And in 2021, KT Wiz’s first regular season-Korean series championship was created.
It was unheard of for the winning coach to take over the 1st and 2nd division coaches. The two coaches will lead KT, but first, they will meet the world’s strongest players as coaches and hitting coaches at the WBC. I wonder how the winning experience will work.
