Coach Lee Seung-yeop, who blocked the LG championship 21 years ago, candid thoughts ahead of the Jamsil Derby as Doosan coach
Doosan Bears coach Lee Seung-yeop talked about the rivalry between Doosan and LG.
On the 14th, coach Lee Seung-yeop will face the rival LG Twins in Jamsil Stadium in Seoul. This is the first time Doosan and LG meet in a KBO League game since Lee Seung-yeop took office.

In particular, on Children’s Day, there is always a head-to-head match between Doosan and LG at Jamsil Stadium, so it is also called ‘Children’s Day Derby’.
In an interview on the 12th, director Lee Seung-yeop said about the rivalry between Doosan and LG, “I still don’t feel it. Now, I’m playing a rival match in Jamsil, but I can’t feel it, but I think I need to play well tomorrow and prepare for the LG match. LG is also a strong team, so I want to meet in a good atmosphere.”
Director Lee Seung-yeop, who said, “I’m not particularly conscious of LG yet,” said, “It seems that people around me talk about it more,” and talked about the heated rivalry between Doosan and LG. Then, when the story of hitting a three-run home run to tie the score against LG in the bottom of the ninth inning against LG in Game 6 of the 2002 Korean Series, when he was a player, came up, he laughed shyly.
Manager Lee Seung-yeop said,안전놀이터 “It is good to have a good rivalry. It can be of interest to general fans as well as box office success. It is true that it is an important success factor. I hope there will be a lot of good stories,” he emphasized the importance of rivalry.
