Professional baseball Hanwha has sacked head coach Subero, who had been leading the team for over two years, and appointed 2nd team coach Choi Won-ho as the new head coach.
Fans sympathized with the change, but also expressed regret at the time of the manager change.
This is reporter Kim Soo-geun.

Hanwha won two consecutive victories thanks to new foreign pitcher Sanchez’s strong pitching and Noh Si-hwan’s home run.
However, the sacking of coach Subero was announced 27 minutes after the match.
Coach Subero’s wife left a short message of thanks on social media, but it was a sudden farewell that even the players didn’t know about.

“Personally, it was a bit surprising. I hadn’t thought of it at all, and the team… I think it’s very difficult to have a beautiful breakup.”
Hanwha said they would trust Subero until this year, saying that the goal is to rebuild the team rather than performance.

“Because we have planned for three years, Subero continues to lead the team until next year (2023).”
However, it is the position that it took time to prepare for the parent company’s recuperation from last month, when it fell six consecutive losses.
There is consensus on the change as it was at the bottom for two consecutive years, but there were opinions that questioned the timing as it was the point where they had won 5 out of the last 6 games.

“It was very regrettable because it changed in the middle of the win. Shouldn’t (coach Subero) have done it until the end, until the end of the season…” [

“I wonder if it will make me want to do better. Cheer up…”
The new head coach is Choi Won-ho, the second-team coach who served as acting coach three years ago.
I am thinking of making changes to the existing Subero style, such as shifting defense and managing bullpen pitchers.

“The concept of a winning group of at least three people including the closer. ) I’m trying to shift.”
Following former coaches Kim Seong-geun and Han Yong-deok, Hanwha changed the head coach during the third consecutive season.스포츠토토
As long as it was declared a measure for winning baseball, another convincing performance was needed.
