I am also grateful to the fans. such a great fan Regardless of win or loss, they cheered us on everywhere. I am grateful to be able to experience these fans.

It’s a team decision. The coaching staff cannot be involved. We are only involved in the game. Players shouldn’t give up on growing. Later, if the players win the championship, they will be able to rejoice.
-Has there been a conflict with the leader?
The great thing about baseball is that managers and general managers, coaches and players don’t all view baseball the same way. It is impossible to look at baseball in one way. Of course, there are things we can’t agree on. I don’t want to make a big problem out of forgetting about those things and not agreeing to them. I want to say thank you for trusting me for the past two years.
-What would you like to say to the Hanwha players?
did it all last night thanks! It was such a wonderful companion, and all the players cried. I also cried like a baby. We loved each other enough to cry together. There is also a life after baseball. My career as a manager ends here, but my relationship with the players doesn’t end there.안전놀이터
