“Lotte Giants are dreaming of a leap forward. Wouldn’t it be nice to look forward to this year?”

7-10-7-8-8. This is the ranking of the Lotte Giants for the last 5 years. Even if the range is extended to 10 years, it has only entered fall baseball once in 2017 (3rd place in the regular season).

Can we really look forward to this year? Confidence overflows at the Lotte Spring Camp in Guam.

Three free agents, Noh Jin-hyeok, Yoo Gang-nam, and Han Hyeon-hee, stand out the most, but a number of veterans such as Cha Woo-chan and Kim Sang-soo, and new coaches such as Bae Young-soo, Choi Gyeong-cheol, and Kim Hyun-wook have also been strengthened. At the first meeting with reporters on the 11th, coach Larry Sutton expressed a different composure than usual, saying, “It has been a process of putting together a puzzle. This year is different. My goal is the top 3.”

The coaches and players are cautiously making a ‘chance to win’. It is not empty words that come out during the spring camp season, but confidence with a reason.

There is another power reinforcement factor. Former Samsung Lions coach Heo Sam-young, who is considered the best power analysis ability in Korea. In August, he laid down the baton at Samsung, and in December joined Lotte as a power analysis coordinator. It’s a huge challenge. 메이저놀이터

He also serves as a power analysis agent for the World Baseball Classic (WBC) national team. Coordinator Heo smiled, saying, “I am busy doing Lotte during the day and WBC power analysis at night.”

“The team called Lotte that I have seen so far and this year’s Lotte have a distinctly different feel from the past. Now is the time when the capabilities that have been built up so far are bursting out. The team color that you feel through your skin must have changed a lot.”

Regarding the ‘power analysis’, coordinator Huh explained, “Everyone on the team is sweating on the ground for a first win. It is to give confidence for victory through good feedback there.”

How much is Lotte’s power as seen through the eyes of a power analyst? Is it possible to win the fall baseball game? Asked a straight-forward question.
