Doosan Bears rookie catcher Jun-ho Yoon was honored to be on the overseas spring camp roster from his first year as a pro.
Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop said after the Doosan Bears’ 41st anniversary ceremony held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 16th, “Among the new players who joined this year, Yoon Jun-ho will join the spring camp in February.” It also needs a lot,” he said.
Yoon Jun-ho was nominated by Doosan with the 49th overall pick in the 5th round in the 2023 KBO Rookie Draft last year. In Dongdaemun, he was well received by scouts for his good batting and outstanding defense, and he succeeded in joining the pro team.
In fact, Junho Yun received a lot of attention before the draft even though he was an amateur player. While appearing on the JTBC baseball entertainment program ‘Strongest Baseball’, which aired from the beginning of last year, he teamed up with legends who dominated the KBO league, such as Lee Seung-yeop, Park Yong-taek, Jeong Geun-woo, and Lee Taek-geun. 바카라사이트
The cast members of ‘Strongest Baseball’ watched the TV broadcast with bated breath on the day of the draft, praying for Yoon Jun-ho’s nomination as a pro. The moment Yoon Jun-ho’s name was called, a story about a smartphone messenger group chat room almost exploded was revealed, drawing attention.
Manager Lee Seung-yeop, who was a baseball commentator at SBS until then, sent congratulations to Yoon Jun-ho on his professional career, expressing, “I wonder if my son will be so happy when he gets a job.”
However, just two months later, all the past relationships had to be buried as memories. When head coach Lee Seung-yeop took over as Doosan’s 11th head coach, Yoon Jun-ho made it clear that he would not place more importance on one of the Doosan players.
It was also explained in detail that the fact that Yoon Jun-ho was included in the roster for this Australian spring camp was made in consideration of the team situation. It was emphasized that the main catcher Yang Eui-ji will be away until mid-March due to participation in the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC), so the catcher’s entry is ample.
Regarding Yoon Jun-ho’s participation in the camp, Lee gave a joking explanation, saying, “I took Yoon Jun-ho to the camp because I needed a lot of catchers, and it has nothing to do with the strongest baseball.”
Also, “I really thought about the spring camp roster. Thanks to the club’s consideration, our team will bring about 4 to 5 more players to Australia.” Because the time for judgment is approaching, I am both excited and worried.”
