Doosan, led by head coach Lee Seung-yeop, completed its eighth day of spring camp at the Black Town Baseball Stadium in Sydney, Australia on Tuesday. Pitchers including Kwak Bin, Choi Won-joon, Jeong Cheol-won, Kim Dong-joo and rookie Kim Taek-yeon checked their conditions through catch balls and bullpen pitching, and fielders sweated outside after the rain stopped.
Most of Doosan’s players who came to Australia for the second consecutive year since last year expressed satisfaction with the weather and stadium environment. “When there is sunlight, it is definitely hot,” pitcher Kim Taek-yeon said. “When there is a cloud, it is cool and the weather is perfect for throwing a ball.”
Lee Young-ha smiled, saying, “Having a camp in a warm overseas country makes me feel comfortable throwing and mentally, so I can improve my pace. I think it’s a great help.”
The coach’s opinion is the same. “If we move to Japan after fully practicing here, the players will feel differently in terms of efficiency,” Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop said. “It has only been a week since we had camp, but since the weather has improved compared to last year, I think it will be a much better camp than last year in terms of efficiency.”
What’s different from a year ago is that Doosan has ample time to enhance its sense of play in real games this year. Doosan stayed in Australia throughout the spring camp last year. However, it will hold its first spring camp in Australia through March 19 this year, and then begin its second spring camp focusing on play-offs in Miyazaki, Japan from March 21. It will hold an exhibition game against the Softbank Hawks at Fukuoka PayPal Dome on March 3.
“Last year was not good enough. Two games were scheduled with the Australian All-Star, but one was canceled. All you have to do is learn the sense. I think I lost a lot of details while playing against the other team,” Lee said.
“I feel much better this year because I can still go to Japan and play about six to seven games. I think positively. The club also paid a lot of attention. The club is doing everything it can, and it’s the same for us. I think it’s a great opportunity,” he added.
Meanwhile, Doosan will hold its first blue-and-white match of the spring camp at the Black Town Baseball Stadium on Wednesday. According to Doosan, the team will open the stands free of charge for local residents.
