Ji Chun-myeong’s ‘Invincible’ comeback… Dae-sung Koo completed his 30 years of baseball life in Geelong
The undefeated Daeseong is back.
On the 16th, the Geelong Korea team announced, “Koo Dae-sung, who served as the first coach of Geelong Korea, has joined the team as a player, not as a coach.”
He added, “We will go to the last series with Adelaide starting on the 19th. Since we have been training steadily while teaching young players, we can expect a good look in the future.”
Previously, Koo Dae-sung had experienced the Australian professional baseball stage as the Geelong coach in the 2018-2019 season, four years ago.
In particular, he took the mound against Brisbane on January 20, 2019 and recorded one hit and no runs in one inning.
Koo Dae-sung was delighted, saying through the Geelong club, “Coach Lee Byeong-gyu and the club readily agreed to wear the uniform again.” 슬롯사이트
At the same time, he said, “I continued to make my body to throw about 130 km per hour. I want to help the junior players who run together, and I will throw many innings to help the team.”
Previously, the oldest pitcher in the Australian Professional Baseball League was Chris Oxspring (46), who played an active role in the KBO League. However, with the arrival of Koo Dae-sung, he took the title as the oldest.
The relationship between Koo Dae-sung and Geelong coach Lee Byeong-kyu is also deep. As part of the national team, the two played a big role in pitching at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, leading Korea to a bronze medal, and in 2006, the 1st World Baseball Classic (WBC) also collaborated to make the semifinals.
Meanwhile, Geelong Korea, with 5 games left until the end of the current season, is in 6th place with 13 wins and 22 losses.
The Geelong Korea team will return to Korea via Incheon International Airport on the afternoon of the 23rd.
