On the 17th, Kiwoom Heroes (hereinafter referred to as ‘Kiwoom’) announced, “We plan to hold a finishing camp at the Taejang Sports Complex Baseball Stadium in Wonju, Gangwon-do from the 22nd to November 26th.”
A total of 45 people were named on the final camp list released by Kiwoom, including coach Hong Won-ki, 35 players, and 10 coaching staff. Players who were active this season, such as Lim Ji-yeol, Kim Dong-hyuk, and Park Soo-jong, will also attend this wrap-up camp, which is focused on prospects and rookies.
In particular, Won Seong-jun is listed as an infielder on the Kiwoom final camp list, drawing attention.
In the ‘2024 KBO League Rookie Draft’ held on the 14th of last month, Jung Hyun-soo, Hwang Young-mook, and Ko Young-woo, who appeared in ‘The Strongest Baseball’, were nominated by the Lotte Giants, Hanwha Eagles, and Kiwoom Heroes, respectively, but Won Seong-jun’s name was not called in the end.
In JTBC’s ‘Strongest Baseball’ broadcast on the 18th of last month, which featured players who participated in the draft, Won Seong-jun, who was not yet named, shed tears and expressed regret. Afterwards, news became known that a professional team had received an offer from Won Seong-jun for a test, and he joined the Kiwoom finishing camp.
Netizens who heard this news said, “I hope you do well because the team has a lot of opportunities if you do well,” “That’s great,” “Congratulations to Seongjun! Stay healthy and enjoy playing baseball for a long time,” and “I believe there will be good news if you work hard.” They delivered messages of support.
