Lee Jung-hoo, who is not aware of the MLB scout, “I will focus only on my play no matter who comes”

 Lee Jung-hoo (Kiwoom Heroes), the representative hitter of the Korean national baseball team, expressed his confidence, saying that he did not care about the Major League (MLB) scouts gathered at the training ground.

After the 2023 season, Lee Jung-hoo, who announced that he would advance to the United States, was silent in a practice match against the NC Dinos held on the 16th (hereafter local time) at Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium in Tucson, Arizona, USA, with no hits in two at-bats.

Since many MLB scouts were present at the game, it seemed that Lee Jung-hoo felt burdened by it. However, Lee Jung-hoo revealed메이저사이트 that he was not aware of the scouts.

Lee Jung-hoo met with reporters at the Keno Sports Complex on the 18th and said, “I heard from the agent (Scott Boras) that the evaluation and analysis of MLB clubs have already been completed. After hearing that story, I felt comfortable. Now I will just focus on my play.”

Lee Jung-hoo said, “There are players who want to go to America, such as (Go) Woo-seok, (Jung) Woo-young, (Kim) Hye-sung, and (Kang) Baek-ho, so I thought it was a showcase for those players.” Rather than thinking about informing people, I am only thinking about winning the team,” he reiterated.

“I still have 4 more practice games left and I play practice games even when I go to Japan. I try to think of the practice games here as live betting,” he said. I will find it,” he added.

Lee Jung-hoo also mentioned concerns about the World Baseball Classic (WBC) official ball.

He said, “I heard from (Kim) Ha Sung-hyung that this ball doesn’t fly as well as domestic balls.”

Lee Jung-hoo met Choi Ji-hoon (SSG Landers), a 1-year senior at Gwangju Mudeung Middle School, in this national team.

He fell out with Choi Ji-hoon when he transferred to Whimoon Middle School in Seoul during his sophomore year, but met again after about 10 years in the national team.

Lee Jung-hoo said, “(Choi) Ji-hoon hyung and I watched infielder in middle school, but now we both watch outfielder. At that time, Ji-hoon hyung was a good player.” I hope we can continue to meet each other,” he laughed.

Lee Jung-hoo, who also had a bunt drill that day, said, “I think we’ll have a head-to-head confrontation when the bunt sign doesn’t come out. It’s better to hit the ball between the first and second base than to hit the second base with a bunt and send it to third base.” He has the ability,” he said confidently.
