“Homework not done” KIA geopo first baseman’s endless desire for RBI… 356 home run left-handed hitter ‘Excellent supporting actor’

February 13, 2023 0 Comments

KIA Uta Geopo Hwang Dae-in (27) set a goal of 80 RBIs ahead of the first full-time first baseman season in 2022. He hit 14 actual home runs and posted 91 RBIs. He played 126 games and marked a significant inflection point in his baseball life and the history of KIA’s first baseman.

However, it is difficult for him to be satisfied with his batting average of 0.256 and OPS of 0.716. Strikeouts (92) were twice as many as walks (45), and the slugging rate of 0.401 should be further raised. You need to increase your average and on-base percentage to increase your productivity at the plate, and there is room for more home runs and RBIs.

Hwang Dae-in said on the 12th (hereafter Korean time) at KIA’s spring camp, Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona, USA, “I came in advance on the 18th of last month, and (Choi) 바카라Hyung-woo senior and (Ryu) Ji-hyeok finished adjusting to the jet lag, The weather has also adapted. The training conditions are good.”

Even ahead of the 2022 season, Hwang Dae-in trained individually with Choi Hyung-woo in Jeonju. At that time, Hyeong-woo Choi emphasized the importance of hitting Dae-in Hwang. This personal training is also a great help to Hwang Dae-in’s growth as a central hitter based on the ‘unfinished’ training a year ago.

Hwang Dae-in said, “I came in quickly with senior Choi Hyung-woo to learn more about the necessary parts. It works. It seems to get better every year. He said, “After experiencing a year last year, he needs to learn a lot to set a direction and routine.”

Hwang Dae-in’s value increases if he produces more than two base hits in right-middle and center field. He said, “Senior Choi Hyung-woo also said that he could only hit 20 homers if he just pulled. However, he said that hitting center fielders and right fielders would increase the number of home runs and long hits. He was learning how to hit far in that direction. This was an unfinished homework.”

Hwang Dae-in turns his bat sharply these days. However, he himself is detailed. “When I played the season in one form, the results were not good. Plans A to C should be made. You have to swing lightly. In particular, there are a lot of two-seam pitchers this year, so we plan to divide them into three categories. If the team wants to win, I have to get on base at least one more time.” It means that the batting form that responds according to the type of pitch will be slightly different.

Again, the ultimate goal of Hwang Dae-in’s push is long hits and RBIs. He said, “I played 4 times at the beginning of last year, so it became a sandwich. He seems to have been lucky. He had a lot of experience. He has to compete for the starting position every year with the team’s first mind.”

It is true that Hwang Dae-in is still the number one first baseman this season. However, Kim Seok-hwan, who is likely to be pushed out of the outfield competition, and Byeon Woo-hyuk, who is likely to be pushed out of the third base competition, are trying to make Hwang Dae-in nervous. Hwang Dae-in said, “Even when there were 5 first basemen, there was a time when he was 5th. He has only competed for the past 10 years. He is confident.”
