“Today, you’re the coach.” Lee Jong-beom and Lee Jung-hoo’s father and son, ML’s surprise reunion… It was a special consideration for the master of the WS championship

Coach Lee Jong-beom (54), who is undergoing leadership training in a minor league under Texas on the 19th of last month (Korean time), signed his seal for work early in the morning at a spring training camp site in Surprise, Arizona, as usual on the 2nd.

However, it was different on the day. Coach Lee called in Lee to announce that he will accompany the San Francisco Giants at an exhibition game held at Scottsdale Stadium on the day. Lee’s son, Lee Jung-hoo, is located in San Francisco. It was special consideration from the Texas team and Coach Bochy for the father-to-son reunion. Kenny Homburg, a defensive coordinator who is providing support to Lee at a Minor League camp, also gave assistance from the middle.

Since last month, Lee Jong-beom and Lee Jung-hoo have been living together in Scottsdale, but never met each other at a baseball stadium due to different workplaces. Lee Jung-hoo was not aware of the fact that Lee accompanied the coach during the game. It was a surprise event. Coach Boch even gave Lee a chance to exchange the lineup card before the game. When Lee said, “Thank you for your consideration,” Coach Boch jokingly said, “You are the coach today.”

Before the game, coach Lee said, “I had many conversations with Coach Bochy. Coach Bochy also won the World Series title last year and I also won (as LG coach) in Korea, so I was like, ‘Why are you here?’ When I told him that I was here for my son, he laughed.” Coach Bochy also said, “I bet there would be no more special experience than meeting my father and son at a baseball stadium.” Lee Jung-hoo also said, “I think my dad came because of the consideration from the Texas team. I met him at a baseball stadium in Korea, but it feels different because it was the first time in the U.S. It’s amazing to meet him at a major league game.”

Coach Lee, who came to the U.S. with his wife, Jeong Yeon-hee, quit his job as coach of the LG Twins to help his son Lee Jung-hoo adapt to the U.S. As a natural baseball player, however, Lee took this opportunity to study baseball in the U.S. Not to put pressure on Lee, Lee looked for other teams instead of the San Francisco team. He has found a place to train among the teams that set up camp in Arizona with his resume, and is learning advanced systems by getting an opportunity in Texas.

He also accompanied his son Lee Jung-hoo at an exhibition game on the day, wearing uniforms with the team’s consideration. Lee Jeong-hoo stepped down on a fly ball to center field in the first inning and a foul fly to third base in the third inning against Adrian Sampson, a right-handed starter from the Lotte Giants in the KBO League, but in the fifth inning, he hit a 95-mile (152.9-kilometer) four-seam fastball in a disadvantageous count on a two-strike to Cole Win to lead the game to a heavy hit, making his father happy.

Lee Jung-hoo had a hit in three consecutive exhibition games since his debut in the exhibition game. Lee, who started his debut game with the Seattle Mariners on April 28, had one hit and one run from three times at bat, and reported his first double and a home run against the Arizona Diamondbacks on April 1, making two hits, one RBI and one run from three times at bat. He thus far had a batting average of 444 (four hits from nine times at bat), one homer, and two runs scored.

The game against Arizona, where he hit the homer, was not broadcast on TV, but Lee, who watched all of his batting performances through his agency, said, “There has been no significant change compared to Korea’s. Rather, it has become simpler,” adding, “I experienced it when I moved to Japan, but I must feel pressured to do well in a new place. There must be anxiety, but I think he is adapting well in many ways.”

The day was also special for Coach Bochy, who gave unforgettable memories to Lee Jong-beom and Lee Jung-hoo. He visited his former team’s campground, where he led the team to three World Series championships (2010, 2012, 2014) as San Francisco’s coach for 13 years from 2007 to 2019. Fans who filled the Scottsdale Stadium welcomed him with standing ovations, and Coach Boch took off his hat to respond.

Coach Bochy, who announced his retirement from the San Francisco Giants, returned to the Texas Rangers last year. He reaffirmed his reputation as a “master” by leading his team to its first World Series championship in his first year as a coach. Since starting his career with the San Diego Padres in 1995, Bochy has led a total of 4,194 games during 26 seasons, posting 2,093 wins and 2101 losses (.499). Although his win rate during the regular season is less than 50 percent, Bochy has won a total of 94 games with 57 wins and 37 losses (.606) in the post season, making him an adventurer in the short-term.
