Winning the Korean Series is a big deal for the LG Twins. Not just because it’s been 29 years. It’s about the future of LG.
LG clinched the title three days early. They used the remaining games flexibly to utilize their players.
After three days of rest, the team will start preparing for the Korean Series on the 19th.
The team is currently in training camp at LG Champions Park in Icheon, with a schedule of two days of training and one day of rest. With so many rest days, the team will be training hard. The team even trains at night.
Before the training, coach Yeom reflected on the regular season championship. “We have become a team that is recognized by other teams. Last year, we were the challengers, but this year we are the challengers. “The mindset of the players has changed, and the pennant race was important to change that mindset,” he said. “We wanted to create the perception that we’re not an easy team, we’re a tricky team, we’re a difficult team to play against, and they did that. They did a great job.”
Although the team failed to win individual titles, such as Hong Chang-ki’s batting title and Shin Min-jae’s stolen base title, they were able to confirm their strong depth.
Coach Yeom Kyung-yup said, “They played well all around. We played with the weight of a one-point game. We didn’t give up that one point easily, which is why we won so many upsets. We became stronger, and especially in the postseason, we don’t want to give up one point easily, and we need to focus on scoring one point.” 토토사이트
This Korean Series win is significant for LG in many ways. Not only is it the company’s first title in 29 years, but the future of LG is at stake.
“The Korean Series will determine the next three or four years for LG,” said Yeom Kyung-yup. “If we win this year, we will be a better team next year, a team that can compete better in the pennant race. If we can do this, we will be able to become a prestigious team that can be in power for the long term.”
