KIA Tigers hitting coach Lee Bum-ho is throwing a special betting ball. It is a game-specific betting ball thrown by possessing the starting pitcher of the opposing team.
Daegu Samsung Lions Park in the afternoon of the 17th. While the KIA players warmed up before the full-scale training, hitting coach Lee Bum-ho, who was scheduled to play the betting ball that day, also started warming up by playing catch.
However, his throwing posture was somehow awkward. He seems to be mimicking something, but the balance is off. It turns out that he imitated the pitching form of Albert Suarez, who is scheduled to be the Samsung starting pitcher that day.
The forms that were awkward at first became more and more similar. Even if his ball power cannot be matched, it is Coach Lee Beom-ho’s intention to familiarize batters with his pitching form and timing.
The batting ball pitcher who was watching from the side also helped coach Lee’s ‘possessing Suarez’ with a one-point lesson.메이저사이트
Coach Lee, who had finished preparing, got on the mound and threw the betting ball in earnest. He wasn’t like Suarez as much as he was in practice because he was focused on control.
However, he deserves applause for this coach’s willingness to help hitters at all costs. If the KIA batters succeed in attacking Suarez on this day, Coach Lee’s efforts will shine.
Suarez, who started as a starting pitcher on this day, has appeared in six games this season and is recording an average ERA of 3.75 with 1 win and 2 losses. The recent pace is good. On April 28, against KT, 7 scoreless innings, on May 4, against Kiwoom, 7 scoreless innings, and against Hanwha on the 11th, 7 innings and 4 runs (3 earned).
KIA’s starting pitcher is Smile Rookie Yoon Young-cheol. He started 5 games and went 1-1 with a 4.30 earned run average. He recorded his first win in his debut against Lotte on the 3rd with 5 innings and 1 run, and on the 11th against SSG he made a save with 5 innings and 3 runs.
