Hulk Foundation Chairman Lee Man-soo and former SSG Landers coach delivered the current status of the Laos national team.
Director Lee Man-soo, who went on a baseball mission to Southeast Asia after the retirement of professional baseball coach, has been working hard on the development of Laos baseball for his 10th year.

Coach Lee Man-soo says that this experience has been of great help to the Laos team.
Director Lee brought up one more story. He said that he would like Laotian players to directly witness ‘running wearing only the teacher’s underwear’. Coach Lee Man-soo has made a promise in front of the Laos players, saying, “If I win at the Asian Games, I will go around the Vientiane Presidential Palace wearing only my pants.” He conveyed the message that he can bear such shame, and that he should do his best.
After a day off on the 28th, the Laos team, which had a difficult experience of buying and selling in Korea, moved to Thailand on the 29th to participate in the 13th East Asian Cup Baseball Championship. This tournament, which is also hosted by the WBSC, will advance to the Asian Championship if won. A total of 7 countries (Cambodia, Hong Kong, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia and Thailand) participate in this tournament, and Laos is ranked 83rd in the WBSC rankings. 4th among all participating countries. Coach Lee Man-soo also headed to Thailand to take care of Laos players participating in the tournament.
Head coach Lee Man-soo said, “The young players have been very tired and exhausted due to the tight schedule over the past 10 days, but I think all the players will unite, make up their minds and do their best in the international competition held in Thailand. The heat in Thailand is quite hot. , I have lived with the heat in Laos all my life, so I think the players will adapt well in about two days.”
