The LG Twins, Kiwoom Heroes, and Hanwha Eagles are spending spring camp near Phoenix, Arizona, USA. LG and Kiwoom set up camp in Scottsdale, and Hanwha in Mesa.
Chae Eun-seong (Hanwha) and Lee Hyeong-jong (Kiwoom), who left LG last winter, are training near their parents’ team. Chae Eun-seong signed a free agency contract with Hanwha for up to 9 billion won over 6 years. Lee Hyeong-jong, who qualified as a free agent in the Futures League, signed a four-year contract with Kiwoom for 2 billion won.
From LG Camp (San Francisco Giants Baseball Complex), Kiwoom Camp (Salt River Field) is within 10 minutes by car. It takes about 30 minutes by car from LG Camp to Hanwha Camp (Bell Bank Park). The team’s accommodation is also not far away메이저놀이터 Kiwoom from LG takes about 20 minutes, and Hanwha from LG takes about 30 minutes.
LG, Kiwoom, and Hanwha are training camp with the turn of ‘3 days training – 1 day rest’. The rest days for all three teams are on the same day. Chae Eun-seong and Lee Hyeong-jong, who left LG, frequently contact their teammates and can meet during breaks.
However, both Hyungjong Lee and Eunseong Chae are keeping a ‘distance’ (?) from their old colleagues. Lee Hyeong-jong, whom we met at the camp, said, “On the first day we arrived at the camp, Oh Ji-hwan and Kim Yun-shik came to the dorm. He brought me something to eat and looked at my face,” he said. Oh Ji-hwan and Kim Yun-sik arrived in the United States early in mid-January and were training individually.
“But since I came to Kiwoom, I have to get closer to Kiwoom players. On days off, I think it’s right to eat with the juniors on the team. (LG) will not meet. have to cut I can see you later,” he said with a smile. While staying at the camp, he said that he should communicate more with Kiwoom colleagues and get to know them quickly.
When Hyungjong Lee was at LG, Kiwoom had no close friends or motives. He said, “Since Choi Won-tae is a junior at Seoul High School, he jokes around and talks to me. His juniors talk to him first and he is adapting well.”
Chae Eun-seong also made friends with the new teammates in the same way. Chae Eun-seong said, “To get closer to my friends below, I try to approach first. (Lee) Taeyang is a year junior, and (Choi) Jaehoon is a classmate. (Jeong) Woo-ram hyung and (Jang) Si-hwan hyung take care of me and I’m adapting well.”
He said, “(LG colleagues) are in contact with each other. I am also getting close with my friends who are here right now,” he said.
Chae Eun-seong is training with Noh Si-hwan, a promising Hanhwa giant, and is expected to play the center of the team as a veteran. LG’s old colleague is forgotten for a moment.
