Head coach Park Jin-man of the Samsung Lions said ahead of the practice match against Chunichi Dragons held at Akama Ball Park in Okinawa, Japan on the 11th, “In practice matches, the process is more important than the result. I hope he doesn’t have the burden of consequences,” he said.
Samsung lost 0-3 in their first match against the Nippon Ham Fighters on the 9th. Although he did not enjoy the joy of victory, his income was not small. It is because the young players who will be responsible for the future of the Lions had a good experience while facing relatively high-level Japanese players.
Manager Park Jin-man said, “As we have been training hard in defense, we need to improve our defense to some extent메이저사이트, and as for batting, we need to raise our senses through practice games.”
Practice matches are literally a preparation process for the regular season. Manager Park Jin-man said, “It is important to try out the parts that have been trained in the practice game. There is also something to be gained through defeat. It will be a good opportunity to work harder to make up for the lacking parts.”
He continued, “I hope the players will not be stressed about the outcome of the game. After the start of the season, we have to produce results, but now we are in the preparation process, so I hope you focus on the process rather than the result.”
Samsung will play practice matches against Chunichi on the 11th and 12th. It is never easy to organize a match against a Japanese club for two days in a row. This is only possible thanks to Eiji Ochiai, head coach of Chunichi, who served as pitching coach and manager of the Futures at Samsung.
Manager Park Jin-man said, “When I told Chunichi that it would be nice to have more practice games, manager Kazuyoshi Tatsunami readily accepted. He expressed his gratitude, saying, “It is possible because Coach Ochiai is there.”
