Lotte Sutton resigns due to health concerns… Lee Jong-woon takes over for the season

Larry Sutton (53), the head coach of the baseball team Lotte, resigned from his position on Monday due to health reasons.

Sutton took over as the head coach of Lotte’s second team in October 2019. He then took over as the first team coach in May 2021 when Heo Moon-ho was fired. Lotte, which was last in the league before Heo’s dismissal, finished the season with a record of more than 5 percent after Sutton took over. In response, Lotte gave Sutton a boost by signing him to a contract through 2023.토토사이트

Lotte burst onto the scene in April with 14 wins and 8 losses to lead the league, and remained in third place until May. However, the team’s slide began in June, and they have lost seven straight games and are currently in seventh place with 50 wins and 58 losses (0.463 winning percentage). In the meantime, Sutton has been sidelined twice this month due to dizziness.

Lotte will now be led by acting head coach Lee Jong-woon.
