Kiwoom Heroes head coach Hong Won-ki (50) had a simple and clear message for his team.
Kiwoom will host the Lotte Giants of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Sajik Baseball Stadium in Busan at 6:30 p.m. on April 15.
Kiwoom is in last place with 51 wins, 3 losses, and 77 draws on the season before this game. The gap between them and the fifth-place SSG Landers is 16 games, with about 13 games remaining. In fact, fall baseball has become difficult.
In the meantime, the 2024 Rookie Draft was held on Nov. 14 in Sogong-dong, Seoul. With three picks from the LG Twins (first round), KIA Tigers (second round), and Samsung Lions (third round), Kiwoom laid the groundwork for the future by selecting a whopping 14 rookies. 메이저사이트
However, head coach Hong Won-ki said, “I didn’t watch the draft. I only talked to the general manager. He said, ‘We got almost all the players we wanted from the scouting team. It was a satisfactory result,” he said.
As for why he didn’t watch the draft, he said, “I don’t have time to worry about new players right now. I believe we did a good job in the scouting part. For further evaluation, we will take our time, such as during the final training.”
Hong went on to say that even though the team is currently in last place, they will not give up until the end of the season. “The players who are good will play. Those who are not good will go down to the second team. “We plan to prioritize the good players and do our best until the end of the season,” he said.
