Hanwha Eagles coach Carlos Subero defined the 2023 spring camp as a “time to leap” and emphasized the proof of the players themselves who will make up for the sluggish time over the past two years.
According to the Hanwha Eagles, 스포츠토토 on the 1st (hereafter local time), the 2023 Spring Camp began in earnest at Bellbank Park in Mesa, Arizona, USA to leap to the top this year. The Hanwha Eagles will hold their first camp in Mesa, Arizona until the 23rd with a schedule of 3 days of training and 1 day of rest. Afterwards, they will move to Okinawa, Japan, and plan to hold a second camp focusing on practice games from the 28th.
Coach Subero emphasized the meaning of this spring camp as ‘Time to Climb’.
Coach Subero said, “Leaping does not mean a leap limited only to numbers and grades, but to have the ability to steadily maintain oneself who has obviously grown over the past two years.” I couldn’t prove my growth with this. Now is the time to prove myself through persistence.”
“But from the second time onwards, you will have to put all your energy into achieving the individual goal in your heart,” he encouraged the squad.
Foreign players of the Hanwha Eagles also voted to participate in the spring camp.
Birch Smith, Brian O’Gredi, and Felix Pena showed their determination to join the team in front of the coaching staff and players prior to training on the first day of the 2023 Spring Camp, which started in Mesa, Arizona, USA on the 1st (local time).
Newly recruited fireballer right-hander Birch Smith said, “I’m happy to meet you guys. I want to learn a lot about Korean culture, including food, in the future. Please help me a lot.” Let’s have a great season together.”
Another new mercenary, Power Peter-type right-handed left-handed outfielder Brian O’Gredi said, “It’s the same idea as Birch,” he said. “I’m here to win. I hope all my teammates will come to me easily.”
Finally, Pena, who joined as a substitute foreign player last season and signed a new contract, said, “It’s nice to see you again. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me. I will do the same.” I want to see results,” he said.
The three joined the team’s quarters in Mesa, Arizona, two days before the start of camp, to melt into the camp atmosphere in advance of training. After light personal training at the lodging, they had a meeting with general manager Sohn Hyuk, head coach Subero, coaches, and the players.
