“Does the uniform look good on you?”
The sturdy player, who changed from the striped uniform to a white uniform with a burgundy color, showed off his long hair. Lee Hyeong-jong, who moved from LG Twins to Kiwoom Heroes as a free agent for Futures, spoke of the excitement of a new start.
On the 2nd (Korean time), Hyungjong Lee had his first training session wearing a Kiwoom uniform at Salt River Fields in Scottsdale, Arizona , USA. On this day, Lee Hyeong-jong formed a team with Lee Jung-hoo, Kim Hye-seong 토토사이트, and Edison Russell to hit.
In Kiwoom coach Hong Won-ki’s idea, Hyung-jong Lee is the starting right fielder. Director Hong said, “As of now, only second baseman Kim Hye-seong, shortstop Russell, center fielder Lee Jung-hoo, and right fielder Lee Hyung-jong have been fixed. The rest of the positions can be seen as competition.”
Lee Hyeong-jong, who trained with the aces in the team, laughed and said, “It feels like I’m being treated for something.”
He came to the market looking for an opportunity with the LG Twins, where he played all along. And Kiwoom, who needed a right-handed outfielder, reached out and signed a contract for 2 billion won for 4 years, which could be said to be a jackpot for Futures free agents.
His goal this season is to go out as many times as possible. Hyungjong Lee said, “I think the record goes up when you go out a lot,” and “I came here from LG to go out a lot.
Coincidentally, the LG Twins also set up a spring camp in Arizona, and the training grounds are close to each other. It is only a 10-minute drive from San Francisco Giants Baseball Complex, LG’s training ground, and Salt River Fields, Kiwoom’s training ground. The accommodation is also about 20 minutes away. LG and Kiwoom have the same rest days, so Hyungjong Lee can meet his old colleagues. When Lee Hyeong-jong came to Arizona, LG Oh Ji-hwan and Kim Yun-sik, who had come to Arizona for personal training, came to Lee Hyeong-jong and gave him something to eat.
However, Lee Hyeong-jong said, “I will not meet LG players on the rest day at this camp.” Lee Hyung-jong said, “The 4th (local time) is a day off, so my LG colleagues asked me to have a meal together, but I decided not to go.” Because of this, we can meet and talk at any time, but Kiwoom players need to get closer now. I want to focus on Kiwoom now.” Scottsdale (USA)
