Ahn Kwon-soo, who mainly played a role in invigorating the lineup with a table setter, had a different presence on the bench as well as at-bat. Whenever he wins or loses, Ahn Kwon-soo is the player who inspires “fighting” on the bench with the loudest voice.
Ahn Kwon-soo laughed about his unusual ‘fighting’, saying, “I’ve been like that since Doosan.”
“It wasn’t easy to go out in the middle and do well because I started as a backup player. The results aren’t coming out well either. So I always went back and forth between the 1st and 2nd groups. I thought about how I could be in the first team, and I started by saying, “Let’s cheer up first.” I think baseball can go well once the atmosphere is good.” 토토
Ahn Kwon-soo, who couldn’t understand any Korean when he first came to Korea, said, “It was very hard at first. At that time, the manager of the manager, who was good at Japanese at the club, helped me, but I couldn’t be the only one to look at it, so I honestly didn’t do well even if I had something to say. After spending three years using gestures and footsteps, I communicated well in Korean. I think baseball got better because of that.”
However, after the third season, when he performed the best after coming to Korea, he is at a crossroads of retirement again. This is because the Doosan club has decided to release Ahn Kwon-soo, who can only play for another year at the most. Ahn Kwon-soo boarded a plane to Japan with the thought of ‘finding something else’. Fortunately, I received a call from Lotte soon. That’s how Ahn Kwon-soo’s “real last season” began.
