General Manager Lee Jong-yeol said through the club, "I am happy and overwhelmed to come to a prestigious club.

Recently, Samsung's power has weakened, so I think we need to improve in various areas."

He also added, “I will focus on developing players,” and “I want to make it a strong team that can produce sustainable results.”

General Manager Lee earned the title of ‘studying baseball player’ while working as a commentator and national team coach.

He said, “I think this is an opportunity to put into practice at Samsung what I learned and felt during my long career as a player, the baseball I watched and learned in the United States, and what I experienced while commentating and coaching the national team.

While in the United States, I taught sports management at a local university.

“I often communicated with Professor Cho Seong-ho, who was there.

I thought it would be good to run the club in the same style as Theo Epstein,” he recalled.

Epstein, who was surprisingly selected as general manager of the Boston Red Sox at the young age of 28, the youngest player in the American Major League, broke the 'Bambino Curse' and then moved to the Chicago Cubs, where he also solved the 'Goat Curse' and became a championship contractor. raised the bar.
