“I think I did a good job bringing him.”

What was the impression of national team coach Lee Kang-cheol, who trained with Tommy Edman (St. Louis), the first foreign player in the history of the Korean national baseball team?

Edmund arrived at Incheon International Airport on the 1st and officially joined the Korean national baseball team at the World Baseball Classic. Edmund, who greeted the Korean reporters and fans with a bright expression, left a good impression with his sincere and sincere attitude in the national team’s first training session held at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 2nd.메이저사이트

National team coach Kang-Cheol Lee, who met with reporters after the official training session, said, “I said, ‘It’s an honor to be with a major leaguer'” and shared a conversation he had with Edmon during training. It was a unique joke, but the good impression he had about Edmund was conveyed through his bright smile.

Director Lee Kang-cheol said, “I am very active. He also tries to speak Korean, and works very hard at defense and things like that. I was very grateful for that appearance” and after praising Edmon’s attitude, “I kept asking (Kim) Ha-seong, trying to find out, and doing it to find out what kind of play he was playing. did.

It’s because I literally saw a good process and attitude. Coach Lee said, “No matter how the game is played, the human process is important. According to the old expression, if you say ‘condescending’, the team atmosphere can be bad, but I think the appearance of trying to come inside and trying to find out will have a good influence on the team and players.”

Director Lee seemed to have already been firmly fascinated by Edmund’s seriousness and bright attitude.

Born to a Korean-American mother and an American father, Edmund is the first foreign player on the Korean national baseball team. He could be a historic player in many senses as well as technically. If Edmund, the first player like that, successfully joins the national team and shows how it melts into one, it could be a new milestone for the national team in the future.
