The Korea Baseball Softball Association (KBSA) has named Jae-ho Choi as the Korean U-18 National Baseball Team manager and Dong-jin Lee as the manager of the Korean U-12 National Team.

Choi is the head coach of the Gangneung High School and will lead Korea at the XXX WBSC U-18 Baseball World Cup, scheduled in Florida, USA, from 9 to 18 September.

His high school teams have won three national tournaments in recent years, including the Golden Lion King Championship.
