Lee Jung-hoo and Lee Eui-ri headed to Los Angeles side by side on the 10th for personal training with the same agency. After training for about 20 days at a training facility, the two players head to their respective team’s spring camp. From the 14th of next month, he will be called to the national team and prepare for the WBC to be held in March.
It seems that the two players enjoyed the game by visiting the basketball court during their break time while conducting personal training ahead of the important season. In particular, last year’s KBO League MVP Lee Jung-hoo introduced him accurately, including the broadcaster captioning his name and even writing down his SNS account.
Lee Jung-hoo will be eligible for posting at the end of this season. There is already a growing interest in Lee Jung-hoo in the major leagues, such as evaluations in the US that his ransom can exceed 100 million dollars in total. It is expected that local scouts will be able to observe Lee Jung-hoo’s Los Angeles personal training and Kiwoom’s spring camp.
