When Hanwha Eagles coach Kim Gyeong-moon (65) arrived at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul, Doosan Bears coach Lee Seung-yeop (47) moved towards the Hanwha dugout ‘as if running’.

As soon as Director Kim Gyeong-moon discovered Director Lee Seung-yeop, who was much younger to him, he lowered his head, and Director Lee approached Director Kim with his back bent at ’90 degrees’.

The two, who collaborated to create the ‘myth of victory’ at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, reunited and honored each other.

Coach Kim Gyeong-moon will lead the Hanwha team to face Doosan at Jamsil Stadium on the 11th.

It has been about six years since Coach Kim visited Jamsil Stadium as the head coach on May 24, 2018, when he was leading the NC Dinos.

It is the first time facing Doosan since the Masan game on April 29, 2018, and the first time playing against Doosan in Jamsil has been 6 years and 2 months since April 8, 2018.

Coach Kim, who has been leading Hanwha since the 4th, is considered the most notable baseball figure in the KBO League recently.

Doosan is a club where Manager Kim started his professional career as a catcher in 1982 (the club name at the time was OB) and debuted as a manager in 2004.

Coach Kim led Doosan from June 2004 to 2011 and achieved 512 wins (432 losses, 16 draws) in 960 regular season games.

The relationship between Doosan and Coach Kim made the Jamsil game that day receive more attention.

In addition, his relationship with Doosan’s head coach Lee Seung-yeop further increased interest.

Coach Lee, who currently leads Doosan, ‘shares warm memories’ with Coach Kim.

At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, then national team coach Kim Gyeong-moon placed Lee Seung-yeop, who had performed poorly throughout the preliminaries, in the starting lineup in the semifinals against Japan.

Lee Seung-yeop, who had three at-bats in the semifinals with a strikeout, double play, and strikeout, hit a comeback-winning two-run shot against Japanese closer Hitoki Iwase in the bottom of the eighth inning with one out and one on first base when the score was tied 2-2.

Lee Seung-yeop shed tears during the post-game interview, leaving those around him solemn, and coach Kim Kyung-moon hugged Lee Seung-yeop deeply.

Once the guns were opened, there was nothing to worry about. Lee Seung-yeop hit the final two-run shot in the top of the first inning in the final against Cuba the next day, and Korea won the Olympic gold medal.

Now, coach Kim Kyung-moon and coach Lee Seung-yeop face off as ‘commander’.

Coach Kim, who is very polite to his juniors, gave his first greeting to Coach Lee with respect and said, “We will have a good game.

He then added, “Doosan’s performance has been good recently.”

Director Seung-Yeop Lee, who was polite in front of everyone, bowed lower in front of Director Kim and greeted him several times.

Coach Lee said, “I am just grateful to Coach Kim Kyung-moon,” and added, “I always thought that Coach Kim Kyung-moon would return as the active head coach at any time. I will learn a lot from the coach, but I also have to focus on the team’s victory, so during the game, I will focus on our team.” “I will only think about the team,” he said. 토토사이트
