New SSG Commander Lee Sung-yong…”I’ll be a communicative leader”
After firing the previous year’s championship coach, SSG Landers chose former KT Wiz head of player development Lee Sung-yong.
In a press release on the morning of the 17th, the club said, “We have signed a contract with new head coach Lee Sung-yong for a total of 900 million won, including 300 million won in down payment and 300 million won in annual salary, for a two-year contract period.”
Regarding the background of the appointment of the new manager, ESG said, “We started the process of appointing a new manager with the goal of innovating the operational paradigm for sustainable development, and selected new candidates who can actively implement it under the motto of communicative leadership and team remodeling.”
“We set evaluation criteria by extracting essential competencies and virtues in various fields, and selected Lee Sung-yong after sharing the club’s direction and baseball values through in-depth interviews.
“He has a ‘servant leadership’ style based on open communication and mutual respect to help the coaching staff and players maximize their potential. 온라인카지노
Shortly after the semifinals, ESG fired Kim Won-hyung, who led the team to a wire-to-wire title last year (staying in first place from the opening day to the final day) and a third-place finish in the regular season this year, with two years remaining on his contract, citing innovation and change.
Lee joined the Pacific Dolphins with the second overall pick in 1994 after graduating from Kyung Hee University and played 18 professional seasons with the Hyundai Unicorns and Heroes.
He served as team captain for five years during his playing career and held key positions on the field and front office after retirement, including commentator, hitting coach, general manager, and director of player development.
Through the club, Lee said, “As I have been given a huge task of performance and development, I will take responsibility and lay the foundation for a strong team that can perform well every year with the surrounding coaching staff, players, and front office.”
“I am excited to be back in Incheon, and I will fulfill my duties with the goal of restructuring the team and growing prospects so that we can meet the expectations of our fans,” he said.
