Director Lee Seung-yeop “Champion of the Blue Dragon in 30 years, tradition does not go anywhere”

Doosan Bears coach Lee Seung-yeop heard the news that his alma mater, Gyeongbuk High School, won before the Lotte Giants match in Jamsil on the 27th. Director Lee did not hide his delight, saying, “Tradition doesn’t go anywhere.” 

Gyeongbuk High School defeated Water Vault 4-1 in the final of the 78th Cheongryonggi National High School Baseball Championship and Weekend League Wangjungwangjeon held at Mokdong Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 27th. This is the 22nd national championship. 

If you look at the blue dragon flag competition alone, it has stood at the top for the first time in 30 years. Coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “Tradition doesn’t go anywhere. It took a long time (to win the Blue Dragon). I’m proud that I won the championship in 30 years.” 

At the time of the championship in 1993, head coach Lee Seung-yeop was in the second year of Gyeongbuk High School. He did a great job on the pitch. In the final match against Kunsan Sanggo, he pitched scoreless innings in 8 1/2 and hit the final solo home run as a batter. ‘Lee Seung-yeop, a sophomore at Gyeongbuk High School’, received the Outstanding Pitcher Award.

Gyeongbuk High School is a prestigious baseball school that has won the most national championships. Many professional club players have also been produced. However, the results of the recent national competitions have not been satisfactory. It is the first time in 8 years since Choi Choong-yeon (Samsung Lions) played an active role in the 2015 Bonghwangdaegi. 

Coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “I didn’t know it would take this long (to reach the top of the national competition). Traditional schools such as Gwangju Ilgo and Gyeongnam High School are not like that.” We have to keep going,” he said.메이저사이트

Coach Lee Seung-yeop is currently in charge of Doosan. On the 25th, he defeated Lotte and ran 11 consecutive wins, the most ever for the club. The losing streak was interrupted by losing 2-7 the previous day (26th), so Doosan stands on the starting line again with a new mindset. Coach Lee said, “We lost because the opponent (Lotte) was better than us,” and “a team that doesn’t lose in a row is a strong team. We have to reorganize a new team and play a good game.”
