“He’s a player on a different level from me”…’Jamsil Big Boy’ acknowledged by batter number 4 of the opposing team
You’re a player on a different level from me.” The fourth hitter of the opposing team praised him until his mouth was dry, waving his hand.
On the 19th, before the game between the Hanwha Eagles and the LG Twins of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul, Hanwha Chae Eun-seong greeted the coaching staff and former teammates of his former team.
When Chae Eun-seong appeared on the ground, the LG players stopped training and welcomed Chae Eun-seong, who visited Jamsil for the first time after the transfer. For Chae Eun-seong, LG was a team that he had been with for 14 years, so his affection was different. So he spent a happy time laughing with his old colleagues whom he met after a long time.
While we were having such a good time, a tall player jumped up and hugged Chae Eun-seong. It was Jaewon Lee. After hugging Chae Eun-seong, Lee Jae-won asked how he was doing, and Chae Eun-seong also praised Lee Jae-won by talking about his home run distance and batted ball speed, which had recently become a hot topic.
When a staff member next to him said, “It seems like Chae Eun-seong during his LG days,” Chae Eun-seong said, “What are you talking about? He’s on a different level from me.” Lee Jae-won, who was praised, asked Chae Eun-seong, who had received a lot of help since his LG days, about batting, and Chae Eun-seong generously shared his know-how and gave advice.
The two players trained in the same group while training together in the outfield defense during their LG days. At this time, Lee Jae-won grew up with a lot of help from Chae Eun-seong.
At one time, Chae Eun-seong, like Lee Jae-won, was a promising right-hander for LG. Many players left LG without being labeled as a promising player, but Chae Eun-seong was different. After a lot of hard work, he became a myth of a fostering player and grew into the team’s fourth hitter. And last winter, he moved to Hanwha after hitting the FA jackpot of 9 billion won.토토사이트
As a senior who has experienced Lee Jae-won’s current process, Chae Eun-seong knows Lee Jae-won’s burden more than anyone else. So, every word from Chae Eun-seong is a great source of strength for Lee Jae-won.
What Chae Eun-seong praised so loudly in front of her party was the message, ‘Lee Jae-won, you are doing well now’. She was a meaningful support from her senior, who said, ‘Don’t worry too much and hit with confidence like now’.
Meanwhile, Lee Jae-won has played in 13 games this season, recording a batting average of 0.273 (9 hits in 33 bats), 2 homers, 7 RBIs, a slugging percentage of 0.515 and an OPS of 0.848. In particular, the distance of his multi-home run shown in the last 16th game was overwhelming with 136m and 121m, respectively. Also, the batting speed of the double hit shown in the game on the 17th reached a whopping 181.8 km. The ball hit the bat with a bang and passed the center fielder’s height in the blink of an eye.
Literally, it was the appearance of a ‘big boy’. All baseball players are surprised by his power, which is at the top level even compared to major league players. As Chae Eun-seong said, Lee Jae-won is a ‘player on a different level’.
