Kim Joo-seong (25), who will lead the future LG infield, will serve as the captain of the Future Team this year as well as last year.
LG, led by coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop, is currently setting up a spring camp in Arizona, USA, and is sweating heavily.
It is not only the first-team players who are continuing their hard training. Futures players, who will lead LG’s future, are training as much as first-team players at the LG Icheon Champions Park.
Hwang Byeong-il is spending a lot of time developing his skills under the guidance of futures coaches and coaches.
Coach Hwang Byeong-il, who talked with MK Sports at the training ground on the 3rd, said, “Our Futures players also started training in earnest from the 1st. This year, I gave the players a mission, saying, ‘I want them to be a little more bold, active, and continue to take on challenges’. The players here should go to Jamsil after gaining experience through skill improvement and second-team games. If you want new changes, if you work to promote innovation, I will gladly give strength to the players.”
Coach Hwang Byeong-il appointed Kim Joo-seong as the captain to lead the Futures team in the 2023 season. After graduating from Whimoon High School, Kim Joo-seong was nominated by LG in the 14th place in the 2nd round of 2016. Since his amateur days, his aggressiveness and quick feet have been recognized, and he is attracting attention as a player who will lead the future of LG. He has already solved the military problem as well.
His first-team appearances totaled five matches. He played 2 games in 2017 and 3 games in 2021. He mainly played in the Futures League. He has played 276 games for the Futures, with a batting average of 0.294, 220 hits, 8 homers, 118 RBIs and 220 runs. In the 2022 season, there is no first-team game record, and in Futures, he played 72 games and recorded a batting average of 0.246, 49 hits, 3 homers and 26 RBIs. 먹튀검증

Manager Hwang Byeong-il said, “Last year, I was the head coach of the first team. When I asked the coaches, they said that Juseong made the claim last year as well. He consulted with the coaches and manager, asking, ‘So do I have to hire someone new? But the coaches said that Juseong did well over the past year. He said, “Wouldn’t it be better to do it one more time, the coaches made a recommendation.”
He continued, “Yesterday (2nd), I asked Joo-seong about something. He asked, ‘What is the part that I emphasized? So I said ‘thank you’. I said ‘thank you’ once again because I was thinking exactly what I should do, what I should do and why. Not only Joo-seong, but all the players are preparing well,” showing his faith in Kim Joo-seong.
