When he was the general manager of the SK Wyverns (SSG Landers), he was an ‘event man’ who personally handed out ice cream to fans who were tired from the heat. LG Twins manager Yeom Kyung-yeop expressed his thoughts on the special match (practice game) organized as part of the ‘2024 Major League World Tour Seoul Opening Series’ event to be held next month. He is determined to create a meaningful game for the fans who spent a lot of money to visit.

LG will play a special match against the San Diego Padres on March 18th. He became a sparring partner for a major league team. Manager Yeom Kyung-yeop is considering Choi Won-tae as the starting pitcher. Coincidentally, the date coincides with the regular season opening rotation. Dietrick Ens will be in charge of the opening game on the 23rd, and Lim Chan-gyu will be in charge of the second game of the opening game on the 24th. Next, it was the turn of Casey Kelly, Wontae Choi, and Jooyoung Son. Here, the player who received ‘Yeom’s Choice’ is Choi Won-tae.

Coach Yeom Kyeong-yeop said, “Due to the date, we have to match our opening starting rotation anyway. It is a week before the opening, and we want to fight with our domestic players in that game rather than sending out foreign players. So we are thinking about Choi Won-tae. The plan now. “That’s right,” he said.

The focus was on the fact that it was both a preparation for the regular season and an event game. Coach Yeom Kyeong-yeop said, “I’ll have to wait until then to find out, but I think it will be more fun for the fans to fight as a domestic player, and I think the joy I can give to the fans when I win that way will be greater. Even though it’s an event match, shouldn’t it be fun? It has to be meaningful so the fans can enjoy it.” “It’s rewarding to come. I’m sure a lot of fans will come, so I put a lot of thought into that aspect,” he said.

Choi Won-tae is a teammate of Kim Ha-seong, the ‘biggest major league free-agent shortstop,’ who played with him at Kiwoom. He said that on his off day, he even contacted Ha-seong Kim about visiting him for an exhibition game in San Diego. Choi Won-tae will face off against former teammates who are now major leaguers as well as major league superstars such as Manny Machado, Fernando Tatis Jr., and Xander Bogaerts. LG’s vaunted bullpen is also a matchup worth looking forward to.

Manager Yeom Kyeong-yeop, as LG manager and baseball player, is looking forward to this Seoul Series special match. He said with a twinkle in his eye, “I think it will be a memorable game for me. I will also be playing against all the major league starters.”

However, LG and Kiwoom have fewer exhibition games than the other eight teams due to the Seoul Series special match. LG Kiwoom will play 8 games, and the other teams will play 10 games. Even including special matches, LG and Kiwoom have one less game. However, Director Yeom Kyeong-yeop said there was no problem.

He said, “Scheduling 8 exhibition games does not affect preparation for the season. In any case, everything in exhibition games and practice games (before the opening) is focused on the pitcher. The fielders can sufficiently adjust their condition with that much sleep. The same goes for the pitcher rotation. “He said. Park Hae-min was worried that there would be little time to adapt to the ABS (Automatic Pitching Judgment System), but coach Yeom Kyung-yeop hoped that the players would not be upset, saying, “ABS has been installed in Icheon. You can prepare if necessary.”

LG is expecting an ace role from new foreign player Ens this year. Coach Yeom Kyeong-yeop watched the Ens’ first live pitching on the 21st and said, “The angles of the curve breaking, slider and cutter are not bad. The most important thing is to increase the value of the changeup. That will determine success in the KBO League. Changeup. “I think we can win 15 games if our level of completion improves,” he said.

Kelly, who will be a one-two punch partner with Ens in his 6th year in the KBO League, brought a new weapon this year as always. This time, she prepares in earnest the pokeball she used as a taste in the previous Korean series.
