The Hanwha Eagles hired former SSG Landers coach Jung Kyung-bae on Sunday. In addition to his head coaching duties, Jung will also be involved in the hitting department.
Hanwha announced on the afternoon of the 27th that Jung Kyung-bae has left SSG to don the Hanwha uniform.
The club explained, “Coach Jung has the advantage of knowing the players as he joined the club in 2020 as the hitting coach of the Hanwha Eagles Futures and coached the young players who are currently playing.”
“I’m returning to the Hanwha Eagles with a heavy responsibility to work well with Coach Choi Won-ho and deliver results,” said Jung.
Hanwha explained that Jung will also be focusing on the batting department. In his role as head coach next season, Jung will also be involved in the hitting department, focusing on improving the skills of the fielders.굿모닝토토
“I know that I have to be involved in the hitting part to some extent and try to help the team develop,” said Jung. “For players who have improved to a certain extent, I will focus on mental management rather than technical parts, and for young players, I will train them to improve their skills so that they can maximize their abilities.”
“Above all, the head coach is a key communication link between the manager and the coaching staff and between the coaching staff and the players, so we will try to play a good intermediary role so that they can communicate comfortably,” he added.
