I ran for 124 km and was caught. Who is that catcher who was humiliated twice in a row by the stealing king four times
- on Mar 24, 2023
Caught the king of stealing twice. The feet of the LG Twins, who advocated running baseball, were tied up.
Kang Hyeon-woo, the next-generation main catcher of KT Wiz, made a deep impression by showing off his strong dog.
Kang Hyeon-woo wore a catcher mask following Kim Jun-tae from the beginning of the 7th inning defense at the home game against the LG Twins held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon on the 24th. LG, which only attempted base stealing until the 6th inning, intensively stole bases after Kang Hyeon-woo came as catcher. It looked like it was to test Kang Hyeon-woo’s throwing ability.
In the top of the 7th inning, Park Hae-min, the runner-up number 2, got a walk from Kim Min, and then stole the first pitch. However, he tagged out after Kang Hyeon-woo’s throw. Even in the top of the 8th, LG ran. When Lee Cheon-woong, the leader, got a walk, Shin Min-jae, the fastest runner in LG, stepped up to steal the base. However, at this time, pitcher Park Se-jin saw through this and threw it to first base, tagging out at second base. Shortly thereafter, Song Chan-eui took another walk and stole the base again. This time, Song Chan-eui was faster than Kang Hyeon-woo’s throw. However, Song Chan-eui’s foot, which had been sliding, fell off the base and was out.
In the top of the ninth inning, Park Hae-min, who had a heavy hit after one out, stole the base again. When pitcher Jo Yi-hyeon threw a 124km slider, he ran, but was tagged out by Kang Hyeon-woo’s accurate throw.
It is significant that he won the king of stolen bases four times and caught Park Hae-min twice, who is recording 342 stolen bases in his career.
Kang Hyeon-woo is a promising catcher who graduated from Yushin High School and was selected as the 2nd pick in the 2nd 1st round in 2020. He is a person who is being raised as the next-generation main catcher who will lead KT after Jang Seong-woo.
In 2020, the first year of his debut, he went out in 34 games and posted a batting average of 207, 1 home run, and 12 RBIs. During the Arizona camp,메이저사이트 I tried to improve not only Jang Seong-wu’s skills but also Yang Eui-ui of the WBC national team by asking questions.
The performance of this test match is also good. 4 hits in 6 at-bats in 6 games. It shows good sense of 2 walks and 1 pitch.
He competes with Kim Jun-tae for the second catcher spot on the team. Will he be able to boast of being a strong dog in the first team?
