I will only think about team victory.”
Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop is a star player recognized by everyone during his active career.
Excluding the eight years when he was active on the Japanese stage, coach Lee appeared in 1906 games in the KBO League alone, recording a batting average of 3.2 and 467 homers. The 467 home run is the most individual home run ever in the KBO League.
Number 36, which coach Lee wore during his active career, became the Samsung Lions’ ‘permanent absence’.
Pohang, where Samsung’s 2nd Stadium was located, is a place with extraordinary memories. Coach Lee appeared in 39 games in Pohang, recording a 3.62, 15 homers, 45 RBIs, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 1.167.
In the 2013 All-Star Game, he achieved first place in the home run race. On June 3, 2015, against Lotte in Pohang, he conquered the first 400 home run in the KBO.

One of the biggest concerns after Lee took office is the fact that the ‘top star’ in the team became the manager. Director Lee is also well aware of this fact and is constantly vigilant. Even in the exquisitely matched replacement situation and operation situation, Lee would give the ball to the coaching staff rather than ‘himself’. It meant that he would turn the ball and take responsibility for himself.
On this day, the monsoon rain came and went at Pohang Stadium. Coach Lee said, “The weather is not good, but it’s artificial turf, so you shouldn’t get hurt. It’s the first game in a six-game series, so I think we have to win. I’ll only think about winning the team.” Emphasized.

All the players had a hard time.”
