Nothing great in the world has been accomplished without passion.


Director Kim Young-deok passes away at the age of 87… First year KS championship, 707 wins in total

Former coach Kim Young-deok, the first professional baseball coach to win the Korean Series (KS), passed away on the 21st. He is 87 years old.

Born in Japan in 1936 and graduating from Isei High School in Zushika, the deceased made his debut in 1956 in the Nankai Hawks uniform of the Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB). He was a right-handed pitcher until 1963, and in 1959 he also experienced a Japan Series victory.

The deceased, who came to Korea in 1964, made his name known by playing for Korea Shipping Corporation, Crown Beer, and Hanil Bank. He also started his leadership career as a manager and player of Hanil Bank from 1970.

Kim, who went through the commanding tower of Jangchung High School and Bukil High School, took the first helm of the OB Bears with the launch of professional baseball in 1982. The coaches who assisted the deceased at the time were pitching coach Kim Seong-geun and batting coach Lee Kwang-hwan, who later left outstanding achievements as leaders. 토토사이트

The deceased, who jumped into the KBO league with a team of 25 players, won a direct ticket to KS by leading OB to first place in the former league. Then, in the first KS in professional baseball against the Samsung Lions, he won the championship with 4 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. At that time, there were many prominent players in the OB, such as Park Chul-soon, Yun Dong-gyun, Kim Woo-yeol, Shin Gyeong-sik, and Kim Yu-dong, but it would have been impossible without the leadership of former coach Kim, who had gone through a series of battles in Japan and Korea.

However, former coach Kim could not build a relationship with the KS championship after this time. In 1985, when he was manager of Samsung, he won the first and second leagues, but in 1984, a year earlier, he could not overcome the wall of the Lotte Giants, which the late Choi Dong-won endured. In addition, in 1986, when he was in charge of the last Samsung command tower, in 1988-1989, when he took the helm of Binggrae, and in 1991, he lost repeatedly against Haitai Tigers, and in 1992, when he led the last KS advance, he bowed his head again in front of Lotte’s stronghold.
