Lee Seung-min (18, Whimoon High School), the son of Samsung head coach Lee Byeong-gyu, who was called ‘Red Toma’ during his active career, has stepped onto the professional baseball stage. Seungmin Lee was selected by SSG as the 20th overall pick in the second round of the 2024 KBO draft held on the 14th.
Lee Seung-min’s destination attracted particular attention because his father, head coach Lee, was a player representing LG. After being nominated by SSG, Seungmin Lee said, “My goal was to go to a team that needed me and become a player they needed,” and “I will live out my dreams to the fullest.”메이저사이트
Although he was evaluated as the best beast with a strong power tool, Seungmin Lee could not sleep until the night before. He said, “I couldn’t sleep and complained to my younger brother for a long time. “I got a call from my dad late at night and said, ‘Your turn is decided anyway, so just relax and enjoy yourself,’” he said, laughing, adding, “But in the end, I couldn’t sleep until 4 a.m.”
The nickname of Lee Seung-min, the son of ‘Red Toma’, became ‘Red Tomato Colt’ early on. Seungmin Lee said, “I am satisfied with the nickname,” and expressed his ambition, “I will work hard to show a good performance right from next season.”
