Starting this season, Koo Dae-sung (54) and Lee Taek-geun (44) will newly join SBS Sports Professional Baseball Commentary.
Koo Dae-sung is an Eagles legendary pitcher who joined in 1993, won four awards in the pitching category in 1996, and is the only Korean Series MVP among all-time closer. After gaining the best reputation in the KBO League, he played for the Orix Buffaloes and the New York Mets and experienced both Korea, the U.S., and Japan baseball.
Koo Dae-sung, who has a strong spirit of challenge and passion for baseball, served as a coach and player in Australia until the age of 53. In the Major League Baseball (MLB), he also paid tribute to his passion, calling him a “living legend.”
Koo Dae-sung’s spirit of challenge to baseball led to commentator. “I’m excited and happy to meet baseball fans in the commentator stand,” Koo said after holding the microphone anew. “I feel the same way as a player and now that I am commentating. I want to do my best and show my improvement no matter where I am. I will become a great commentator.”
On the other hand, Lee Taek-geun, who recently showed off his talk and charm through the “strongest baseball,” is no stranger to broadcasting seats as he gained experience in commentary at the World Baseball Classic last year. As a former outfielder of the Korean national team, he played in the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the 2009 World Baseball Classic, and won the Golden Glove in the outfield category.
Lee Taek-geun, who had a reputation as a “five-tool player” when he was an active player, said, “I played catcher, infield, outfield, and all positions, and experienced all the batting orders from table setter to center batting. I will make efforts to deliver the results to fans by utilizing the experiences of an all-around athlete.” 마카오토토주소
