[Asian Games] Dong-Hee Yoon “I Can See Kwon-Soo Ahn, Who Gave me the Gloves Like a Keepsake, Even if I Come Back”

Dong-hee Yoon dramatically boarded the team a day before the national team was called up.

Lotte Giants outfielder Yoon Dong-hee (20) was the most dramatic player to board the last train for the Hangzhou Asian Games baseball team.

This is because on the 22nd, the national team judged that KIA Tigers left-handed pitcher Lee Eui-ri would have difficulty demonstrating his skills due to injury and selected Yoon Dong-hee instead of him in the final entry.

Dong-hee Yoon, whom I met at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 23rd when the first national team training was held, was wearing a uniform slightly different from his teammates because he had joined the national team so suddenly.

He initially received a sample of the national team uniform without a uniform number and wore it, but then temporarily wore the uniform he had prepared in advance when he was called up to the U-23 national team last year.

Donghee Yoon said, “It’s nice to be able to start fresh.

“When are you going to train wearing Lotte undershirts and national team clothes without markings?”

Yoon Dong-hee, who became Lotte’s starting outfielder this year, came to the national team after receiving many congratulations from his teammates.

Among them, Ahn Kwon-soo posted on Instagram, ‘The best player who worked harder than anyone else.

Do well.

He posted a photo taken with Yoon Dong-hee along with the phrase, ‘Can we meet again?’

Ahn Kwon-soo, a Korean-Japanese player, is likely to return to Japan after this season.

Yoon Dong-hee said, "I received a lot of congratulations, and I also gained a lot of strength.

(Ahn) Kwon-soo said that I might be in Japan when I return to the national team, and gave me a glove with 'Ahn Kwon-soo No. 0' written on it like a keepsake," and "I took it with me because I might not be able to see it."

He said, 'I'll definitely see you when I come back, so let's come back and see you.'"

When asked if he would wear the gloves he received from Ahn Kwon-soo at the Asian Games, he said, "I'm not wearing something like this.

I'll keep it as a talisman.

I learned a lot from (Ahn) Kwon-soo, and he's a good brother, so it's a shame to think that we can't play together next year." did.

Fortunately, there are a lot of friendly players, so joining the national team for the first time doesn't feel awkward.

Yoon Dong-hee revealed, "I've seen them all while playing, and they treat me well.

I'm closest to my classmate (Park) Young-hyun.

We went to the national team together, so I'm getting a lot of help from them." 

Dong-Hee Yoon hit 3 hits in 5 at-bats against the Incheon SSG Landers on the 22nd, the last game before joining the national team, raising his batting average to 0.296.

He said that he achieved good results thanks to his coach's words, "Go ahead and reap the beauty of your life."

He introduced an incident he had with his father.

Yoon Dong-hee's father, who had deep knowledge of baseball, is said to have said, 'I should hit.

300 with a batting average before I go.'

Donghee Yoon said proudly, "I asked, 'What's the importance of that?'

Still, my parents were really happy when I made the national team.

They didn't know I would do so much so quickly.

They hugged me and told me I was great."

Dong-Hee Yoon must protect the outfield along with Seong-Yoon Kim (Samsung Lions), Won-Jun Choi (KIA Tigers), and Ji-Hoon Choi (SSG Landers).

He, who mainly plays right field for his team
Lotte Giants, expressed confidence, saying, "I am also confident in center field.

I first switched to the outfield and then started as center fielder."
