“I can’t make a batting order right now” Declaration of infinite competition… One person was certain
“There are too many players.”
First year as director. Doosan Bears coach Lee Seung-yeop continues to worry about his worries during spring camp.
Many coaches say “there are no players” every year, but Lee’s arms bent inward at the sight of the players sweating. Coach Lee said, “If the season starts and injuries or sluggishness continue, of course there are no players, but now as the players are working hard, I want to save more energy.”
It wasn’t just a life saver. This season, Doosan’s position has created a fierce competition. In particular, veterans Kim Jae-ho and Ahn Jae-seok, Lee Yu-chan, Kang Seung-ho, Park Gye-beom, Lee Yu-chan, and Jeon Min-jae are putting their strengths to the forefront to secure a place in the first team in the infield keystone position.
Yang Seok-hwan, who wrote the number one home run in the team in 2021, is also in a position where he cannot slow down the tension of Kim Min-hyuk’s growth. A total of 9 players participated in the spring camp for the 1st team, and the outfield team also became a place where anyone could become a protagonist. Coach Lee only said, “It is ideal for Rojas to play in right field,” but he expressed his intention to watch for the remaining position.
Coach Lee further instigated the players’ competition, saying, “I can’t make a batting order at this point.”
While contemplating how to produce 온라인바카라the best firepower, director Lee clarified one spot. This is the appointment of Kim Jae-hwan, the ‘Jamsil Home Run King’, as the 4th hitter.
Kim Jae-hwan, who has gathered expectations with extraordinary strength from the time he joined, showed off his presence as a giant gun starting with 37 home runs in 2016. In 2018, he hit 44 home runs and became the first home run king among hitters to use Jamsil Stadium as a home run 20 years after Woods.
Kim Jae-hwan, who peaked with 44 home runs in 2018, slowed down the following year with 15 home runs. He seemed to bounce back with 30 homers in 2020, but he’s hit 27 and 23 over the past two years. He still showed his power as a giant gun, but it was not enough to meet his expectations.
Manager Lee, who holds the record for the most home runs in the KBO League’s personal career, also had an interview with Kim Jae-hwan immediately after taking office and pointed out, “The team’s home runs were 101. If the fourth hitter had hit 40, it would have gone up to 130.”
Director Lee started the Kim Jae-hwan revival project early on. He handed over the captain’s armband to Heo Gyeong-min, reducing the burden outside of baseball. As Yang Eui-ji came here, a strong ‘umbrella’ was created in the other line.
Director Lee said, “The fixed part in the batting order is Kim Jae-hwan. If Kim Jae-hwan goes out as the 4th hitter and survives, he will be able to have tremendous explosive power.” It’s a special assignment given to the coach,” he said.
