And a good Thursday morning to you all, as we kick things off in the KBO. Now in the latest series of Doosan Bears' reshuffle no one expected this next news to happen. In fact, many of the coaches and players were caught off guard when the Doosan Bears decided to fire manager Kim Jin-wook.
On Wednesday, Doosan Bears president Kim Seung-young personally gave manager Kim Jin-wook the notice stating that he will not return next year. The team's PR rep added that it was his poor decision making as a manager that led to the decision as they promoted their Future's League manager Song Il-su. Song, a 63-year-old Korean-Japanese coach is known for his offensive managing, and should be a good fit according to many experts. Meanwhile, the news came while the Doosan Bears are currently training in Miyazaki, Japan.
