Technical support issues
LG confirmed its victory early on the 3rd. And the remaining games were played by utilizing players flexibly.
After a three-day break, preparations for the Korean Series begin in earnest starting on the 19th.
The LG players began camp training at LG Champions Park in Icheon. The schedule is two days of training and one day of rest. As there are many rest days, train at a high intensity. Even training at night.
Before training, coach Yeom Kyung-yeop looked back on the lead up to winning the regular season. Coach Yeom said, "We have become a team recognized by other teams. Last year we were in a challenging position, but this year we are in a challenging position. It's a really big difference. The players' mindset has changed. The pennant race was important in changing this mindset. “He emphasized. He continued to praise the team, saying, "I wanted to create the perception that this is not an easy team, but a difficult team and a difficult team to deal with. The players did this. They did a really good job."
Although he failed to win individual titles such as Hong Chang-ki's batting king and Shin Min-jae's stolen bases' king, he was able to confirm his strong depth once again.
Coach Yeom Kyeong-yeop said, "They did a good job all around. We played with a sense of weight in the fight for one point. We achieved many come-from-behind wins because we did not give up that one point easily. In doing so, we became stronger. Especially in the postseason, it is not easy to give away one point. “We have to try not to do it and focus on scoring one point,” he emphasized.
Winning this Korean Series is meaningful to LG in many ways. Although there is a win for the first time in 29 years, LG's future depends on it.
Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said, "This is the Korean Series that will determine LG's next 3 to 4 years. If we win this time, I think we will become a team that will go one level higher next year and be better able to compete in the pennant race. If we do this, we will become a prestigious team that can stay in power for a long time. “We will be able to become a team,” he added.
