Former Lotte coach Lee Jong-woon appointed as LG’s remaining team coach

Former Lotte Giants coach Lee Jong-woon was appointed as the responsible coach for the LG Twins’ remaining forces.

Professional baseball team LG Twins announced on the 29th that it has hired former Lotte Giants coach Lee Jong-woon (58) as the remaining team coach in order to strengthen the development of promising players.

Coach Lee Jong-woon played as a professional player for Lotte and Hanwha Eagles from 1989 to 1998, then coached Gyeongnam High School and served as a coach at Lotte.

In 2015, he became the head coach of Lotte, but resigned after one season due to poor performance (8th place, 66 wins, 1 draw, and 77 losses). From 2018 to 2020, he served as the rookie team coach and futures coach at SK Wyverns (predecessor of SSG Landers) and focused on nurturing promising players.

Coach Lee returned to Lotte last year and served as Futures coach and first team head coach. When coach Larry Sutton voluntarily resigned in August of that year due to health issues, Coach Lee served as acting coach for the remainder of the season.

Lotte signed a three-year contract with coach Kim Tae-hyung after the end of last year’s season, and coach Lee left the team after being notified that his contract could not be renewed.

Coach Lee, who used to be an outsider, was appointed as the responsible coach of LG’s remaining forces and will begin his official activities on the 30th. 섯다
