The LG Twins, who achieved their first combined championship in 29 years, are determined to take the top spot and usher in an era of dynasty.

On the 5th, LG Club held a New Year's greetings meeting at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul, attended by CEO Kim In-seok, general manager Cha Myeong-seok, coach Yeom Kyung-yeop, players, and the front office.

LG spent time reflecting in a light atmosphere at last year's New Year's greetings. Looking back on the 2022 season, CEO Kim In-seok reflected on his regret that despite achieving meaningful results, he failed to win the championship due to insufficient final three games (games 2 to 4 of the playoffs).

LG, which worked together a year ago to reach the top, achieved its dream. Last year, LG stood tall as the strongest team in the KBO League and relieved its sorrow of winning the championship for the first time in 29 years since 1994. LG took first place in the regular season with 86 wins, 2 draws, and 56 losses, and also took the top spot in the Korean Series by beating the KT Wiz with 4 wins and 1 loss.

As they relieved their sorrow of winning and achieved the best performance, this New Year's event was held in a friendly atmosphere.

CEO Kim In-seok said, “Last year, the players and front office came together for one goal, which was winning, and achieved the best results. “LG has established a solid bridgehead to become a prestigious club,” he said. “Fans’ expectations have risen even higher this year. “Let’s play to impress the fans and strive to become a club that rival teams fear but want to learn from,” he said.

LG, which reaped the fruits of last year's victory, set an even bigger goal this year. This time, we pledged to achieve the first two consecutive wins since our founding and further build an LG dynasty.

Representative Kim said, “We must leave last year’s combined championship on a page of history and go back to the beginning. We must not be careless and conceited. “Let’s prepare step by step and (once again) mark a milestone in LG’s history,” he said.

LG suffered a blow to its power on the 4th when closing pitcher Ko Woo-seok transferred to the San Diego Padres of the Major League Baseball (MLB).

Still, LG, which still has a solid two-strokes, is considered a strong candidate to win the new season. Foreign players Casey Kelly and Austin Dean, who contributed to the combined championship, were re-signed and new ace Dietrick Enns was recruited. Although they did not sign a contract with a large external free agent (FA), they succeeded in retaining internal free agents such as Oh Ji-hwan, Lim Chan-gyu, and Ham Deok-ju.

In addition, Manager Yeom Kyung-yeop plans to select Yoo Young-chan, who pitched well in last year's Korean Series, as the new closing pitcher to fill the void left by Ko Woo-seok.

There are also some changes to the coaching staff. Nine new people have joined, including second-team coach Seo Yong-bin, Choi Sang-deok, Su-seong Jeong, Ji-hwan Son, Gyeong-cheol Choi, Yong-eui Kim, Seung-jun Choi, Jae-yul Kim, and coach Joo-hyun Jeong.

Hitting coach Lee Ho-jun, who transformed LG into the team with the highest team batting average, took on the role of QC (Quality Control) coach, and coaches Choi Seung-jun and Su-seong Su were appointed as first-team batting coach and base running and outfield defense coach, respectively.

Captain Oh Ji-hwan said, “The director and I expressed our ambition to open the era of the LG dynasty, but nothing is taken for granted in this world. Let’s prepare thoroughly and move together toward a big goal. “Let’s do our best on the pitch,” he said. 토토사이트
