“50 points last year, 90 points this year.” LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop’s camp general review starts for the second consecutive time with strong batters

At the camp, which involved about 40 players, LG had a three-day training and a one-day rest schedule. He went to camp for about a month and played a total of four games with two blue-and-white matches and two NC matches. As expected, the main fielders showed off their hot bats and won both games against NC. In addition, rookie fielder Kim Hyun-jong hit hard every day, raising expectations for the creation of a large outfielder.

In the pitching staff, Lim Chan-gyu showed off his best condition, signaling his performance as a native ace for the second consecutive year. Pilseung group Yoo Young-chan, Baek Seung-hyun, and Park Myung-geun also improved their pace smoothly, while Yun Ho-sol and Kim Yoo-young, who wore LG uniforms as compensation players for the 2022 winter, are also seeing a rebound.

The following is a question-and-answer session with manager Yeom Kyung-yeop, who finished 2024 LG Spring Camp at Scottsdale Indian School Park in Arizona on the 2nd (Korea time).

  • The camp that lasted for more than a month ended today. How do you feel and how do you feel about it?

This camp was aimed at the growth of the main players. The camp was held in a good atmosphere with the seniors at the center, and the preparation process went well step by step. I think it’s well prepared enough to look forward to the upcoming season.

Q: From the first day of the new year, we gave assignments to four veterans (Kim Hyun-soo, Park Hae-min, Oh Ji-hwan, and Park Dong-won). I heard that all four veterans prepared well during the offseason, so will they be able to set a great record?

“I’m looking forward to making it. What’s more important than anything else is that our veteran players are choosing and implementing good training methods on their own. Kim Hyun-soo, Oh Ji-hwan, Park Hae-min, Park Dong-won, and Hong Chang-ki trained by understanding and feeling what each of them needed. Seeing that, I thought that the preparation was really well done. The same goes for our pitchers. We practiced hard the training that each of us needed. As a manager, I felt very good.

Q: He played the cards of Park Hae-min and Hong Chang-ki in the actual camp. He will play in exhibition games, but the results are good in the actual camp.

After the end of the last season, I had a lot of thoughts over this. I also discussed this with many people. I also received answers that No. 1 Park Hae-min and No. 2 Hong Chang-ki would not be bad. I delivered them to the players myself, but they had high expectations in the actual camp. We will conduct further tests through exhibition games. And I will make a decision before the opening of the regular season.

  • This player is a must for the fielders. Rookie Kim Hyun-jong was amazing. I think he is a star of Scottsdale, Arizona.

From the beginning of the camp, I saw this camp as a good experience for Hyun-jong. Coaches Lee Ho-joon, Mo Chang-min, and Choi Seung-joon worked hard on Hyun-jong. He diligently filled the basic skills into the good mechanics that Hyun-jong has. So it grew rapidly. He showed his growth in the real game and we have one more card to grow. Rather than expecting Hyun-jong to contribute greatly to our victory this year, we will let him gain experience by looking at next year and later years. I think he will become a player who can compete with the main player afterwards.

Q: I heard that pitchers exercised a lot on their own. Despite this, Im Chan-kyu hit the fastest speed limit in camp in 14 years. In the past, pitchers used to throw 1,000 pitches at camp, but LG showed pitchers preparing for this season in a different direction.

Yes, pitchers were discouraged from being dragged by coaches and coaching staff just like fielders. They encouraged them to think about how to prepare for this season and what kind of training they should conduct on their own. Actually, I wanted such a camp last year, but it didn’t go as I wanted. In the second year of the camp, players are accumulating points for their baseball games. I believe that I have realized how to practice by throwing every ball even in training, rather than just throwing a lot.
