“National hitter” Lee Seung-yeop responded to the controversy over Choo Kang-yeop, saying, “I think you can leave me out.”

Doosan Bears manager Lee Seung-yeop expressed his thoughts on the Choo Kang-yeop controversy.

Among baseball fans, “Chugangdaeyeop” has become a buzzword while discussing the ranking of Korean hitters in history. This means that Choo Shin-soo, Kang Jung-ho, Lee Dae-ho, and Lee Seung-yeop are in order.헤라카지노

Direct comparison is difficult because the four players each played in the Major League, Japanese professional baseball, and KBO League have different stages and different timings. Baseball fans weigh their performances in the top league, the Major League, and compare them against Japanese professional baseball and KBO league performances.

Thus, Lee Seung-yeop, the only player who did not play in the Major League, is in the back row. “Chugangdaeyeop” is not a problem that has no correct answer, but a problem that each player has different evaluation criteria. All four players are outstanding batters.

Manager Lee Seung-yeop, who was called the “national batter” when he was an active player, is the legendary figure that Korean baseball produced. Along with Sun Dong-ryul (Haetae), Choi Dong-won (Lotte), and Lee Jong-beom (KIA), he was named one of the top four legends to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the KBO League.

Manager Lee Seung-yeop has various home run records, including the No. 1 individual home run (467), the most home runs in a single season (56 in 2003), the youngest 100 home runs (22 years, 8 months and 17 days), the youngest and least 200 home runs (24 years, 10 months and 3 days, 816 games), the youngest and least 300 home runs (26 years, 10 months and 4 days, 1075 games), and 30 home runs in seven consecutive seasons.

In addition, Lee won 10 Golden Gloves (1997-2003, 2012, 2014 and 2015) and five regular season MVPs (1997, 1999, 2001-2003). In his retirement game against Kiwoom in Daegu on Oct. 3, 2017, he hit consecutive homeruns off Han Hyun-hee, the starting pitcher of the team, proving that his class is different.

“I think I can take it out. Players who played in the top leagues should be ranked high,” Lee said through Bears TV, the club’s official YouTube channel. “The fifth place is Lee Dae-ho, and I’m around the sixth place,” Lee said, listing Choo Shin-soo, Kang Jung-ho, Kim Ha-sung and Lee Jung-hoo in order. “I don’t care. You can take it out.”

Lee Dae-ho said, “Honestly, no one can beat Lee Seung-yeop. Seung-yeop is the best at hitting home runs. Let’s admit that. Then Yup should go to the front.”

“Seung-yeop is Korea’s No. 1 in his home run technique. He is not that tall, but he can push himself to hit 56 home runs in a season. In the same year that he won seven times in batting, he also hit 44 home runs. “I thought he hit that a lot, but to hit more than 50 home runs in a season is nonsense,” he said highly of Lee’s ability.
