Chae Eun-seong, Who Watched LG’s Growth, said, “Baseball Can’t be Played in a Short Period of Time… The Goal is to Reach the Top Five”

The goal for the 2024 season that Hanwha Eagles captain Chae Eun-seong set at the beginning of the year was to advance to fall baseball.

That goal did not change even after ‘Korean Monster’ Ryu Hyun-jin joined Hanwha last month.

The idea is that we must make progress step by step without forgetting the reality that we ranked last for three years in a row from 2020 to 2022.

Chae Eun-seong, who joined the LG Twins as a reported player (training player) in 2009,

has watched LG’s twists and turns ever since he was promoted to the first team in 2014.

LG finished the 2019 and 2020 seasons in 4th place and ranked 3rd and 2nd in the 2021 and 2022 seasons, respectively,

but failed to advance to the playoffs or Korean Series. 카지노

And last season, when Chae Eun-seong transferred to Hanwha,

he finally burst into victory champagne for the first time in 29 years.

On the 4th, after returning from spring camp,

Chae Eun-seong met with reporters at Incheon International Airport and answered the question,

“Has the goal been raised?” by simply saying, “No.

It’s the same.”

Chae Eun-seong said, “Even when I was at LG, I didn’t think I would win while I was in last place right away,” and added,

“I think there will be a level of improvement after we set our goal from the top 5.”

He explained, “I don’t think baseball is a sport that can be played in a short period of time,”

“It’s been a while since our team made it to the semifinals,

so we (maintained) our goal of getting to the semifinals.”

Of course, the presence of Ryu Hyun-jin is like a thousand devils to new captain Chae Eun-seong.

Chae Eun-seong said, “I think the team atmosphere has improved a lot since Hyun-jin came in.

I think the players will gain a lot of confidence because the power that each player has is so great.”

Ahead of his own Blue and White match on the 7th, he recalled,

“I want to experience the pitching of Hyunjin, who is the object of my admiration.

He was in the United States when I was promoted to the first team,

so he was one of the pitchers I was really curious about.”

This season, it is also nice to see the addition of veterans such as Kim Kang-min and Lee Jae-won, free agent (FA) Ahn Chi-hong, and new foreign hitter Yonatan Peraza.

Chae Eun-seong, who said, “I feel like the team atmosphere has been established a bit because we have a lot of seniors,” was satisfied, adding,

“Because there are good hitters front and back (of the batting lineup),

even if I can’t solve the problem, I can trust that they can do it behind me.”
