Prospective major leaguer Lee Jung-hoo (27, Kiwoom Heroes) left for the United States. It is to prepare for the World Baseball Classic (WBC) to be held in two months.

Until he joins Kiwoom’s training, Lee Jung-hoo plans to do personal training at a facility in Los Angeles, California for the time being.

With the help of coach Choi Won-je, whom he got to know through the introduction of Kim Ha-seong, he plans to focus on hitting training. In an interview with the media, Kim Ha-seong said, “Coach Won-jae Choi helped me a lot.”

Meanwhile, the next schedule for personal training is joining Kiwoom’s spring camp. On February 1st, he will move to Salt River Fields at Talking Stick in Scottsdale, Arizona, where his team’s spring camp will be held, and begin preparations for the WBC in earnest.

The joining time of the national team is February 15th. He joined the WBC baseball team’s joint training starting at the Keno Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona, to prepare for the 2023 season.

For Lee Jung-hoo, this winter is extremely important. First of all, there is WBC. Lee Jung-hoo emphasized, “Advancing to the US is a later issue, and first of all, the results at the WBC are important,” but the two cannot be considered separately.

If he achieves good results at the WBC this time, his entry into the U.S. will be advanced that much.

Meanwhile, Lee Jung-hoo swept 5 titles this year, including batting average (0.349), on-base percentage (0.421), slugging percentage (0.575), hits (193), and RBIs (113 points). He was a near unanimous MVP. Lee Jung-hoo’s annual salary this season, which was 750 million won, is expected to easily exceed 1 billion won. 토토
