KIA Tigers batting coach Lee Bum-ho (43) was the first player from a "non-franchise" in his career who retired after finishing active duty at KIA. After graduating from Daegu High School, he joined the Hanwha Eagles as eighth player in the second round of the first round in 2000, and he continued to play until 2009.

However, he also played for Kia for nine years from 2011 to 2019. He was born in Uiseong, North Gyeongsang Province and spent his school days in Daegu, but he also has a strong feeling that he is an KIA franchise. In the 2015-2016 FA market, he also signed a four-year, 3.6 billion won contract and served as captain.

He was good at baseball, but he also had good leadership. After retirement, he trained as an overseas coach and started his career as a coach from KIA to scout, then general manager of the second division, and batting coach in the first division. Many critics say that he is a capable and recognized leader both inside and outside the club.

Lee Bum-ho, batting coach, recalled his time when he left the Japanese Softbank Hawks in 2010 after a year by appearing on "Steamed Baseball" hosted by Kia Tigers player Seo Dong-wook and comedian Kim Tae-won at a meat restaurant in Gwangju in December last year. He expressed his gratitude to KIA for holding his hand at that time. The video clip was released on Wednesday. 

In the 2009-2010 offseason, coach Lee Bum-ho signed a two-plus-year contract worth up to 500 million yen (approx. However, he failed to perform properly due to injury and sluggish performance, and was ruled out of the game for the first time in a year. Then, he came to think about returning to Korea.

Coach Lee Bum-ho said, "When I was in Japan, I told him that I would not send him back unless he was a member of the Hanwha Eagles. That's why I met No. 10 with Hanwha." He was a released player in Japan, and when he came to the KBO League, Hanwha didn't have the right to hold because he went to Japan as a free agent. As a result, all eight teams were free to negotiate.

Softbank, however, seemed to have decided that if it were to send coach Lee Bum-ho back to Korea, it would be Hanwha. However, even though it met No. 10 with Hanwha, no deal was reached. Coach Lee Bum-ho is in Japan, and KIA started to approach him. "The KIA said, 'You need us, so join us,' and now I know you need me," coach Lee said.

So coach Lee Bum-ho persuaded Softbank. "I said, 'Release me so that I can go to other teams'. That's what he told me to do. That's why I came to KIA."

As a result, coach Lee Bum-ho signed a contract with Kia for 1.2 billion won (800 million won down payment, 400 million won annual salary) in January 2011, and returned to the KBO League after two years of absence, where he had a long run. "I was the most grateful to him. He was also quick to serve in the front desk of Kia," coach Lee said.

KIA and its coach Lee Bum-ho won the title together in 2017 and ended their career as legendary third baseman in the KBO, hitting a total of 329 home runs. Currently, coach Lee Bum-ho is indispensable to KIA. He is definitely a leader who had a great influence on Kia's establishment
