“There is no fear of striking out.”
LG plans to entrust Lee Jae-won, the ‘Jamsil Big Boy’, as the starting first baseman this year. Coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop plans to place Lee Jae-won in the 7th and 8th positions along with Park Dong-won to increase the weight of the lower lineup. In case the adaptation to the first base defense is delayed, Kim Min-seong and others have a plan B, and Lee Jae-won is encouraged to swing on his own in any situation.
It is important to bet according to the flow of the game, but basically, Lee Jae-won is going to make a full swing in any situation and show his potential as a giant gun. Just as Doosan made Kim Jae-hwan the 4th hitter in the past, LG should also see Lee Jae-won as the cornerstone to make the 4th hitter in the future
. Even on the day when the starting pitcher collapsed early in the game, I think the probability of chasing or reversing in the second half of the game increases. It is only when the winning rate is raised that much that the road to LG’s pennant race victory becomes that much easier.
Lee Jae-won said in an interview after training at the San Francisco Giants Baseball Complex in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA on the 2nd (Korean time), “I don’t feel any pressure about hitting a home run. Thank you for looking good. I didn’t know myself as well as I thought. Pitchers hit aggressively with the idea that they would win quickly. That was not it. Now I have to play baseball with my head.”
Lee Jae-won has enough qualities to grow into a giant, but he can’t hit a home run in every at-bat in every game. Then, when he has a runner, should he reduce his swing width and push him? Lee Jae-won said, “When it’s not good, you have to hit according to the situation,” but he said, “Basically, it’s important to hit with confidence.”
Park Byeong-ho selected Lee Jae-won as the successor to the home run king at the year-end awards ceremony last year. Director Yeom, who took the lead in excavating Park Byeong-ho, must have the same idea. Lee Jae-won said, “Thank you for your words. It has to be realized to become a hitter who can succeed senior Byeong-ho. He also had an interview with the director, and he thought of me and felt comfortable. He said thank you”. 토토사이트
If Lee Jae-won becomes the home run king right away, it would be the best scenario. However, even if he becomes the king of three strikes, LG will definitely invest in Lee Jae-won. 2023 is the season when LG laid the plate on Lee Jae-won, and it is a great opportunity for Lee Jae-won’s baseball life.
Lee Jae-won said, “It is an important time, but I have a desperate heart. He tries not to feel pressured to do well. There is no stress about his strikeout and he is at ease. He contacted senior Byeong-ho, and he said that. He has to play my baseball.”
