“I feel sorry for my colleagues… ” The feeling of batting that I found only in September, the ‘man with the bases loaded’ and the 5 billion won first baseman is finally smiling

“I felt sorry for my colleagues. “Because it’s not over yet.”

Samsung Lions veteran first baseman Oh Jae-il (37) was experiencing his worst slump this season. His performance in the first half was a batting average of 0.183, 38 hits, 7 home runs, 34 RBI, and 19 runs. As the team was underperforming, Oh Jae-il could not raise his head.

Oh Jae-il, who had to spend time in rehabilitation in the second team in early July due to a hamstring injury, is coming back to life little by little as time passes. Originally, Oh Jae-il was stronger in the middle and latter half of the season than at the beginning. From March to June, there was no month in which his career monthly batting average exceeded .288.

However, his overall batting average in July is good at 0.306, in August 0.281, in September 0.294, and in October 0.312. A typical slow starter.

He is the same again this year. Of course, the pace of improvement is slower compared to previous seasons, but it still plays a role in providing RBIs or hitting home runs when the team needs it. In the second half, his batting average was 0.243, with 17 hits, 2 home runs, 11 RBIs, and 5 runs scored. It’s definitely different from the first half.

Especially the games held at home on the 26th and 3rd of last month. I could see why Oh Jae-il is still called the central hitter at Samsung. In the game against Kiwoom Heroes on the 26th, with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 8th inning when the team was down 2-5, he came on as a pinch hitter and hit a grand slam in the final game. On the 3rd, there was a chance to load the bases, and he added strength to the team’s victory with a sweeping double. This season, his batting average when the bases are loaded is 0.545, with 6 hits, 2 home runs, and 19 RBIs. Considering that he has a batting average of 0.168 with no runners on base, that’s an impressive number.

He hit a hit in all three games in September and has a good September batting average of 0.333. The batting average in the last 10 games is also 0.333. It is no exaggeration to say that he comes to the plate with the best hitting feel of the season.

Oh Jae-il said in an interview with the host broadcaster SBS Sports, “He was practicing two weeks ago and felt like, ‘Is this what it feels like?’ He thought, ‘I’ll just have to hit it,’ and he’s hitting good balls. “I feel fine now,” he said. He continued, “I’m not strong with the bases loaded, but when I get a chance, I try to solve it somehow. He is confidently at bat and is getting good results. “He gained confidence as he hit a lot of balls that hit the center.”

I had no choice but to bow my head as I performed poorly as captain. Jae-il Oh has stepped down from his position as captain due to poor performance and injuries and is now concentrating only on the game.

He said, “I feel sorry for his teammates because the team is currently ranked low. There are now 30 games left. “It’s not over yet, so I’ll do my best to win at least one more game,” he said. “Also, thank you for your support no matter whether I do well or not.” “I will continue to hit many good home runs,” he said.

The feeling of hitting that I found only in September, and the 5 billion won first baseman who couldn’t smile all season is finally smiling.온라인카지노

Currently, Samsung is in 8th place with 49 wins, 64 losses, and 1 draw. Although my dream of playing fall baseball is getting further and further away, I will try to go as far as I can with Jae-il Oh.
