New coach Choi Won-ho took over as Hanwha Eagles’ Futures manager in November 2019, led the first team as an acting manager from June 2020, and returned to the Futures command tower in 2021. His achievements include reorganizing his Futures training system, winning the Northern League in the 2022 season, and winning 14 consecutive wins, the most ever in the Futures League.
The Hanwha Eagles highly appreciated the fact that they have been in the club for the 4th season and have a detailed understanding of the team, the leadership that brought out the potential of young players, and the team management that puts players in the right places with a focus on winning baseball that the Futures team showed. After evaluation, it was decided to appoint director Choi Won-ho.
Meanwhile, coach Choi Won-ho debuted in the KBO League at Hyundai Unicorns in 1996 and retired from active duty in 2009 after passing through the LG Twins. Since then, he has accumulated extensive experience such as LG pitching coach, commentator, and technical committee member of the national team.
