The Samsung Lions have transfused outside blood by bringing in a coaching staff that has been called a multi-time champion and national right fielder. At the same time, the team strengthened its training program to improve its constitution.
Samsung is making changes from the inside out to rebuild its reputation. On the 3rd, Samsung announced the news of a large-scale coaching staff recruitment. In particular, it is a shakeup that changes all the major coaches in the first and second teams.
First, the first team hired pitching coach Jung Min-tae, hitting coach Lee Jin-young, and first team general manager Jung Yeon-chang. In the second team, the Futures hired Jung Dae-hyun, Kang Young-sik, pitching coach, and Kim Ji-hoon, general manager of the Futures, and Jung Yeon-chang, training coach.
With a total of six new coaching staff members, the team has definitely strengthened its human resources. The new coaches are quite impressive.
First, SPOTV commentator Jung Min-tae will be the first pitching coach. Jung began his professional career with the Pacific in 1992, where he served as the team’s ace as a starting pitcher and won multiple championships.
After retiring from active play, he worked as a pitching coach and bullpen coach for the Nexen Heroes, Lotte Giants, and Hanwha Eagles, among others. The new Samsung pitching coach, Jung Min-tae, is different from previous Samsung pitching coaching staffs in that he has worked in various roles in the first team, futures, and developmental teams.
Samsung has always had a tradition of hiring blue bloods for pitching coaching positions. However, with the arrival of Lee Jong-yeol from the outside, the team has made changes to the core coaching staff.
Lee Jin-young was appointed as the first team hitting coach. Lee Jin-young, nicknamed the Korean right fielder, played 20 seasons in the professional ranks, amassing 2125 hits and a career batting average of 0.305. After retiring from active play, Lee pursued a coaching career as a power analyst for the national team and as a hitting coach for the SK Wyverns and SSG Landers. He led SSG to the title last year and is known for his ability to connect with players. 무지개토토
There are a number of changes to the Futures coaching staff. First of all, Jung Dae-hyun, who coached players at Dongwon University, was appointed as the head coach of the Futures. Jung is known as the “Queen Bee” and is a former star player who wore the Taeguk mark at international competitions such as the 2000 Sydney Olympics and 2008 Beijing Olympics.
The new Samsung Futures head coach led Dongdaemun University to an Amayagu powerhouse and served as a bullpen coach at the Tokyo Olympics, proving that he is as good a coach as he is a player. He has been sought after by many teams over the years, and now he is starting his professional coaching career with Samsung Futures. Samsung has high hopes for this hire.
