Coach Kim Yeong-deok, who passed away at the age of 86 on the 21st, and Kim Jae-bak, who led the Korean Series to the 4th championship. In particular, the late coach Kim received a harsh evaluation compared to his achievements in the Korean Series, where he won the runner-up six times, the most ever.
Since the KBO was launched in 1982, only two coaches have led the two teams to championships. They are Kim Eung-yong (Haetae, Samsung) and Kim Young-deok (OB, Samsung). If coach Kim Young-deok had added the Korean Series victory during the prime of Binggrae, he would have remained a monumental baseball player. However, history turned away from director Kim.
As is known, director Kim is a Korean-Japanese. He was a pitcher for the Nankai Hawks of the Japanese professional baseball team. The deceased crossed the Hyeonhae Sea at the end of 1963 to avoid discrimination against Koreans and settled there. At the time, he learned Japan’s advanced baseball first-hand, so he showed outstanding skills in domestic business baseball. He is also the first perfect game protagonist in unemployment baseball.
He was also recognized for his leadership as an amateur coach. When the popularity of high school baseball skyrocketed in the 1970s, he led the newly founded Cheonan Bukil High School to a strong team at once. From 1977 to 1981 before the launch of the KBO, he served as the manager of Bukil High School.
The deceased, who became the founding director of OB, beat the winning candidates MBC Blue Dragon and Samsung Lions to rise to the top of the Korean Series in the first year of professional baseball. He knew how to run the pro’s first long-running race, not the short-running unemployment baseball. He did not put Park Chul-soon as a starter, but used it as a bullpen to write an immortal 22-game winning streak. 스포츠토토
