Lee Yu-chan said, “In the case of defense, I wasn’t lacking in confidence, but I was able to shrink because there were a lot of bad performances recently. So he talked a lot with coach Seong-hwan Cho and did a lot of training. The defense also leads to good results at the baseball field, so I wonder if confidence will increase. Still, my strength is that I have a wider range of defense than others.”

Lee Yu-chan graduated from Bukil High School and was nominated in the 50th place in the 2nd round of the 5th round by Doosan in the 2017 rookie draft. Later, in 2019, he changed his name from Byeonghui to Yuchan, and that year he was included in the Korean Series entry and tasted the championship, winning his first championship ring in his life.

Lee Yu-chan, who fulfilled his military service by enlisting as Sangmu in 2021, returned from the military last year and drew attention as a resource for Doosan’s next shortstop to succeed Kim Jae-ho this year. At the same time, he trained hard with defensive coach Cho Seong-hwan at the Australian spring camp to further upgrade the defense. Of course, in 28 games played this season, he committed 5 errors, but his defense is getting better with game after game.

Lee Yoo-chan said, “I can’t say which position is comfortable. I am a player who has to do everything no matter where I go. Because there is no place for me yet. I just want to do well in any position.”

The nickname Post Kim Jae-ho is excessive. Instead, my goal is to become a worthy infielder. Lee Yu-chan said, “It is a grateful thing that the word that I have to follow in the footsteps of (Kim) Jae-ho comes out. I’m happy too. I don’t want to tarnish that reputation,” he said, expressing his ambition, “I want to show a lot of stable defense like Jaeho, if not as much as Jaeho.”
