“It’s a matter of pride.”
Lotte Giants Yoo Kang-nam (31) pledged to do his best in the match against his former team, the LG Twins. Yoo Kang-nam is also determined to never back down. Although he still has a strong perception of being an ‘LG man’, he is Yoo Kang-nam, who is gradually putting on the ‘Giants Man’ image.
Yoo Kang-nam arrived at Incheon International Airport on the 7th after a spring camp with his new team. He said, “We prepared the same as usual. The camp seems to be the same everywhere. However, the team culture is slightly different, but the process of preparing for the camp is similar. I tried to prepare as well as possible.”
Although he is a transfer student, he is Yoo Kang-nam, who quickly melted into Lotte. He said, “There was no sense of incongruity at all. I got used to it quickly after a while. I became friends with players I didn’t know well while talking a lot. It was fun. I will work hard during the season so that I can quickly become friends with players I’m not familiar with yet.”스포츠토토
Yoo Kang-nam is waiting for a face-to-face confrontation with his former team, LG. It was because LG Oh Ji-hwan provoked (?) Yoo Kang-nam by saying, ‘I will hold a ceremony after stealing second base.’ The two reportedly decided to make a bet on the success of stealing bases. Kang-Nam Yoo said, “They said they were holding a ceremony. The loser decided to buy food. It’s more about pride than that, so I’m going to do my best. I don’t want to be made fun of,” he said, promising to win the bet.
He added, “When I ask the transfer students, they say, ‘There is something that lifts them up.’ .
Lotte and LG will play an exhibition game at Sajik Stadium for two days from the 18th to the 19th. The first match of the regular season will also be held at the same location from April 11th to 13th. Attention is focusing on what Yoo Gang-nam, wearing a Lotte uniform, will show in a face-to-face confrontation with his former team, LG.
