SSG Landers head coach Kim Won-hyung bowed his head in response to the group harrassment and assaults within the Futures (second team) squad.

“It shouldn’t happen in this day and age, and I’m sorry that it happened,” said Kim Won-hyung in response to the assault on the Future team ahead of their 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League game against the Doosan Bears at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on Nov. 11.

A few days ago, an assault on the SSG Future Team surfaced through a report this morning. According to the club, player A criticized rookie B’s attitude at the SSG Futures Field in Ganghwa, Incheon, on June 6, gathering the juniors and ordering a group slap. Afterward, another senior player, C, blamed B for the incident and became violent, and another player ordered the juniors to do it again.

A day later, on July 7, SSG reported the incident to the KBO Clean Baseball and requested an investigation. The team immediately suspended the players from official games and training, interviewed them to find out the facts, and submitted a report to the KBO on the 9th.

SSG also came under fire in July 2020 for an internal assault within the Future Team when it was the SK Wyverns. That was just three years ago. At the time, the seniors assaulted the juniors for disciplining them for drinking and driving, driving without a license, and leaving their dormitory without permission. The KBO suspended and fined the players involved and fined SK 20 million won for failing to report the situation to the KBO.먹튀검증

Kim Won-hyung, who was not the SSG commander three years ago, said, “I think it was a mistake in many ways. I thought the last incident would prevent it from happening again, but it happened again. I don’t know what to say because of my negligence. Once again, I apologize for various things. I will do my best to prevent it from happening again,” he apologized again.
