“Even wearing a spike and pitching… Bellbank

Park, located in Mesa, Arizona, USA, opened on January 7, 2022, and is considered the largest new facility in the United States as a sports-only complex. In addition to 8 baseball and softball fields, including an outdoor stadium with 5,000 seats and an indoor stadium with 2,800 seats, 35 soccer fields, 57 indoor volleyball courts, 20 indoor basketball courts and 12 beaches on a 130ha site It has facilities for both local residents and amateur sports players 먹튀검증, such as a volleyball court, gymnastics center, dance studio, and cheer center.

A number of clubs planning an Arizona spring camp in the United States conducted negotiations with the contract in mind, but Hanwha was decided as the final contract club due to their quick response. According to Hanwha on the 5th (hereafter Korean time), it is no exaggeration to say that this result was brought about by the quick judgment of Manager Koo Hyun-joon of the operation team.

Manager Koo planned to change the camp site to a baseball field environment that was somewhat insufficient for use by a professional baseball team compared to the good climate environment at the time of Hanwha’s Arizona camp in 2020. At the time, I heard about the new facility construction in Mesa through TV, newspaper, and internet news. After searching, we found the person in charge, immediately contacted the person in charge, preoccupied the position of the first negotiator, and finished the coordination so that it could be used simultaneously with the new construction.

There was also a crisis. Overseas camps were blocked due to COVID-19, which hit the world, and the use of the stadium became unclear. Nevertheless, Manager Gu maintained a steady relationship with the person in charge of the facility, and through two preliminary visits and steady negotiations in 2022, when the prospect that an overseas camp would be possible came out, the spring camp was finally decided at the facility. has been set up

In particular, in the second field trip conducted with Director Hyuk Son (then the power reinforcement coordinator) in August of last year, Director Son personally toured all the facilities and put a lot of effort into finding and supplementing the shortcomings. It was highlighted that the field and bullpen made of artificial turf are somewhat insufficient for being used as a spring camp for a professional baseball team. The mound has been reinforced to a level that can be used by professional teams.

There was also concession and cooperation from Belbank Park in this process. Bellbank Park partially changed the principle that outside food is not brought in other than its own food and beverage outlets, allowing the players to travel to a catering company to provide Korean food. everything was solved
