Coach Jeong continued, “I know that I need to be involved in the hitting department to some extent and try to help the team develop,” and added, “Players who have improved their skills will focus on mental management rather than technical aspects, and for younger players, “We will ensure that you can maximize your abilities through training to improve your skills,” he said.
Coach Jeong also emphasized, “More than anything, the head coach is a position where communication between the manager and the coaching staff and between the coaching staff and the players is important, so I will do my best to play the role of an intermediary to ensure comfortable communication.”
Coach Jeong, a right-handed pitching infielder from Incheon High School and Hongik University, joined Samsung in 1996, then transferred to SK in 2002 and played until 2009.

He was recognized for his leadership as a hitting coach by leading SK in team home runs for two consecutive years in 2017-2018. SK’s 234 team home runs in 2017 remain the record for the most in a single season in KBO League history. He also contributed to SK’s upset victory in the Korean Series in 2018.
