The team leader thought that the mind of the team was important.”
NC coach Kang In-kwon had a different idea from the previous coach about the captain selection method. He realized it as soon as he took the official baton. NC elected Son A-seop as the new captain through the vote of the players. He was in charge of filling the void left by Yang Eui-ji (Doosan) as captain.
Son Ah-seop signed a contract with NC for 4 years and 6.4 billion won in the 2021-2022 FA market. Being elected as captain through voting means that he gained the trust of NC seniors and juniors in just one year. It has to be. Son A-seop has been an icon of grit and fighting spirit since his days at Lotte.
In 138 games last season, Son Ah-seop stayed with a batting average of 0.277, 4 home runs, 48 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.714. His career batting average of 0.321 was a score that hurt the pride of a player who was ranked fourth. However, Son Ah-seop’s baseball itself was not shaken.
Park Min-woo, the only remaining founding member, said at Changwon NC Park after the New Year’s party on the 16th, “I hope Aseop hyung implants his mind and mentality in our players. After working together for a year, I felt why Asop hyung is such a great player and where his passion and fighting spirit come from. I hope all players on our team can feel that part and have that kind of heart. Ah Sup, he believes that his brother will do well.” 먹튀검증
NC has been greatly shaken for two years since the combined championship in 2020. There was also a change in power, but there were bad issues off the ground, such as violating the Corona 19 quarantine rules. In fact, these are things that won’t happen if a pro keeps the basics of a pro. There is no need to make an argument. However, if the captain’s grit, fighting spirit, and passion endlessly remind him of the professional’s reason for existence, the effect of strengthening NC’s chemistry can be expected.
Park Min-woo also said, “I think if I (Park) Geon-woo hyung, (Park) Se-hyeok hyung and A-seop hyung help well, we can recreate the teamwork and atmosphere of the past. I believe that Ah-seop hyung will do the best for me.” As such, Son Ah-seop’s appointment as captain is likely to act as an invisible force in NC.
Yang Eui-ji’s leadership and Son Ah-seop’s leadership can be subtly different. It is also necessary to mediate differences and strengthen the team through dialogue among the players. NC believes in Son A-seop and prepares for this season. In addition, when individual performance is restored, the team gains more momentum. If the captain is good at baseball, it becomes a driving force to receive stronger support in the dugout.
