Soon, he changed the topic by saying, “Let’s have a good talk.” The target of the ‘good story’ is rookie Park Myeong-geun.
“I’m looking forward to it,” he said in earnest. “I was lucky to come to our team. Actually, I didn’t think I would go to the 3rd round (27th place).

Director Yeom said, “At that time, I and director Yang Sang-moon received good reviews.Thanks to that relationship, Park Myung-geun was able to join the overseas camp even though he was a rookie in the third round. Director Yeom Kyung-yeop explained, “It was also a fate to see Raongo’s appearance at the time. Since I knew it, I said, ‘Include it in the camp unconditionally.’
Among LG rookies in 2023, Park Myung-geun was the only one who participated in the first group spring camp.

Manager Yeom said, “I practiced the changeup a lot during the camp. It was because I thought that pitch was the weakest. I thought that if I threw only the changeup, there would be no problem regardless of the left and right batters. So I ordered the coaches to ‘care about the changeup’.” he explained.
