“I feel more comfortable at first base now”.
A word from Jeok-saeng Lee brought about a very tense situation. It is a competition for the KIA Tigers first base position.
Entering the exhibition match, Byeon Woo-hyeok (23), a transfer student, is swinging a hot bat. He hit two home runs in camps in Arizona and Okinawa, where he batted 3.3 3s. Even in the exhibition game, he wields a high batting average of 3.8 and 9.
In the match against Doosan held at the Gwangju-Kia Champions Field on the 18th and 19th, he made multi-hits two days in a row. On the first day, he hit two single hits, and on the next day, he hit a double hit and a wedge two-run four. For the first time, he had a proper transfer ceremony in front of his home fans.
The game on the 19th was a long hit show. In the 5th inning against Doosan starter Choi Seung-yong, who was good at throwing, he hit a double that hit the left fence and laid the foundation for 3 runs. In the eighth, he kicked Kim Ji-yong’s slider and drew a two-run arch. It was a cannon that wedged it from 6-1 to 8-1.
He fully demonstrated the characteristics of a right-handed gun with long hitting power. He proved the reason why he gave up Han Seung-hyuk, who threw 150 km, and recruited Byeon Woo-hyuk through trade.
Byun Woo-hyuk’s position is first base and third baseman. He originally played third base. Although he has a narrow field of defense, both catches and throws were rated as above average. However, he has been playing a lot as a first baseman lately.
Hwang Dae-in is the main player at first base. After joining as a promising player and unable to find a position, he took over as first baseman in mid-2021. In the 2022 season, he raised 14 home runs and 91 RBIs, becoming a clear starter.
However, when Byun Woo-hyuk joined the team, he became a competitive zone. Originally, it was a sketch to use Byun Woo-hyuk as a backup. However, with the training of batting coach Lee Bum-ho at the camp, he opened his eyes to moving his lower body and timing, and his hitting improved.
In addition, with the help of defensive coach Park Ki-nam, the defensive power has greatly improved. After the game,메이저사이트 he finally said, “I’ve been watching first base a lot these days, so I’m more comfortable with first base. It’s good because I think about various situations in advance.”
It was a word that Hwang Dae-in could not help but be nervous. Hwang Dae-in is sluggish in the demonstration game. He is 3-for-19 on 1.5 and 8 in six games. He has no home runs and is posting 2 RBIs. If this happens, the opening first baseman position may be occupied by Byun Woo-hyuk. Truly, with the efforts of Woo-hyeok Bun, the first base is becoming a high-tension zone.
