KBS N baseball commentator Park Yong-taek is playing around with Kiwoom Hyung-jong Lee at the ‘2023 Spring Camp’ held at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick in Arizona, USA on the 5th.
Park Yong-taek played for the LG Twins from 2002 to 2022 before retiring, and Lee Hyeong-jong wore the LG uniform from 2008 to 2010 and 2013 to 2022. The two players ate together for 13 years.
Commentator Park Yong-taek, who visited the Kiwoom camp, expressed his delight when he saw Lee Hyeong-jong wearing a Kiwoom uniform.
Park Yong-taek, who happily shook hands with Kaum Lee Hyung-jong, looked at the reporters and joked, “I like him, but he’s not my favorite junior.”
Park Yong-taek pointed to Hyung-jong Lee’s long back hair and joked, “Do the director (Kiwoom) and the director say anything when they see long hair? Should I cut my hair now?”
Lee Hyeong-jong also joked, saying, “This is my trademark, but you shouldn’t cut it.” When Lee Yi-seo and Park Yong-taek asked about the difficulty of adapting to the team, he said, “There are many young juniors in Kiwoom, so I am raising the training speed without knowing it. I eat comfortably and train hard.”
Park Yong-taek said, “Don’t be too hasty, let’s be careful not to get injured until the end of the season and let’s fight!” and parted ways with a handshake. 바카라사이트

Hyungjong Lee graduated from Seoul High School and joined the LG Twins in 2008 as the first designated pitcher. After turning to a hitter in the 2015 season, he had a period of adaptation in the Futures League. Lee Hyung-jong, who debuted on the first team stage as a hitter in the 2016 season, transformed into a hitter with long hitting power enough to hit double-digit homers for four consecutive years from the 2018 season to the 2021 season. He played in 624 KBO League career games as a hitter, collecting 544 hits, 63 home runs, and 254 RBIs with a batting average of 0.281.
While moving the team from LG to Kiwoom, Hyungjong Lee said, “I sincerely thank the LG Twins fans who have supported me all this time. I will. I hope you will support me a lot.”
