“I was told to save my players’ ‘ears,’ not their ‘chi’ “‘Korea’s first big leaguer’ Park Chan-ho (50), a special adviser to the San Diego Padres, dismissed speculation that he would take over as manager of the SSG Landers of the Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) with his ‘characteristic humor’. When asked at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul, South Korea, where the KT Wiz and LG Twins played the second game of the Korean Series on April 8, Park said, “Recently, there were reports that I was offered the SSG managerial job.” “Leading a team is the dream of many baseball players. However, I am currently working on the foundation and fostering youth baseball. There are too many things I would have to give up to become a baseball manager .”Currently, Park is busy dividing his time between Korea and the U.S. He is a special advisor to the San Diego Padres, maintaining ties with Major League Baseball, running the Park Chan-ho Scholarship Foundation, and supporting youth baseball. At international tournaments, he interacts with fans as a commentator with a microphone .On this day, he cheered on youth players at the finals of the 20th Park Chan Ho Ki National Elementary School Baseball Tournament in Gongju before traveling to Seoul to watch Game 2 of the Korean Series. He also exchanged views on the development of baseball in Korea with KBO President Heo Koo-yeon.
Special Advisor Park Chan-ho laughed, “I’m not one to mince words, but you’re one of the best.” Park Chan-ho is a symbol of Korean baseball .The Special Advisor, who won 124 games in Major League Baseball, the most by an Asian player, retired in 2012 after playing for the Hanwha Eagles in the KBO .He has remained involved in baseball since then, but not as a coach .Park briefly rose to prominence when SSG fired former head coach Kim Won-hyung. The SSG denied that it had ever considered Park as a candidate for head coach. “If such an article comes out first, you can’t actually become a manager, and now is not the time to work as a baseball manager,” Park said. “I didn’t see the article, but I was surprised when people around me asked me, ‘Are you going to be a baseball manager?’ Some fans said, ‘You should never be a manager. I’m worried about the players’ ears,’ ” he said, laughing hilariously, adding, “You don’t have to worry about the players’ ears because I’m not going to be a manager now. “”I talked to Lee Seung-yeop of the Doosan Bears, who was in his first season as a head coach, and he said, ‘It was really hard. Even though he had a good result (5th place) in his debut season, he complained about the difficulties of being a coach,” he said. “I will focus all my energy on helping our young players become good players, not only in terms 카지노사이트킹 of skill but also in terms of character, rather than leading a team.”
