    Lee Jae-won 'It was good'

    The Samsung Lions and the LG Twins play a baseball game during the 2023 Baseball World Series at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on Thursday afternoon. LG's Hong Chang-ki hits a single with the bases loaded in the third inning and Lee Jae-won runs home from second base.

    LG Twins outfielder Lee Jae-won, 24, nicknamed the "Jamsil Big Boy," has been denied his first trip to the Korean Series.

    The Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) on Saturday released the roster for the 2023 KBO Korean Series, which will be held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul from July 7.

    LG, which will head directly to the Korean Series after topping the regular season, and KT Wiz, which will attempt to win its first title in 29 years, will face off in a best-of-seven series at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul (Games 1-2-5-6-7) and Katie Wiz Park in Suwon (Games 3-4).

    The most noticeable part of LG's roster is the loss of Lee Jae-won.

    After hitting 13 home runs last year, Lee has struggled this season, batting just .214 with four home runs.

    There was some talk about the need for a pinch-hitter who can hit in big games, but the LG bench decided to give that role to rookie Kim Bum-seok.

    Lee Woo-chan, who came on as a pinch-hitter in the fifth inning.

    Also removed from the roster was submarine bullpen pitcher Park Myung-geun, who had been the LG closer until midseason, but struggled with poor command in the second half.

    Park finished the season with a 4-3 record, five saves, and a 5.08 ERA in nine appearances.

    In addition, LG right-hander Lee Ji-gang, who split time between the starting rotation and the bullpen, was also removed from the roster.

    Instead, LG bolstered its bullpen with left-handers Lee Woo-chan and Son Ju-young, and added catcher Kim Bum-seok to the disabled list.

    LG, which boasted one of the tightest bullpens in the league, reserved 14 pitching spots out of a total of 30 roster spots, signaling a "pitching offense.

    Instead, there are five infielders, eight outfielders, and three catchers.

    KT submitted the same roster for the Korean Series as it did for the playoffs against the NC Dinos.

    KT has 12 pitchers, three catchers, eight infielders, and seven outfielders. 카지노사이트존
