KT’s Lee Ho-yeon is a ‘young blood’ in his 20s amidst stalwart veterans

Reporter Lee Hyung-joo = “Young blood” Lee Ho-yeon, 28, is in good form.

KT Wiz won 4-2 against the Kiwoom Heroes in the 2023 Shinhan Bank Solar KBO League at the Gocheok Sky Dome on Nov. 11. KT has 35 wins, two draws, and 41 losses in 78 games, tied with seventh-place Kiwoom for eighth place without a win.

The game was a tight pitching battle until the bottom of the sixth inning. KT’s Wes Benjamin and Kiwoom’s Ahn Woo-jin, the aces of both teams, gave up only one run each until the sixth inning.

The tension was broken in the top of the seventh inning. With runners on first and second in the top of the seventh, KT infielder Lee Ho-yeon pushed Ahn Woo-jin’s ball straight to the left side of the infield, clearing the gap between the shortstop and third baseman. Park Byung-ho then walked home, and Lee’s hit proved to be the game-winner. KT then scored two more runs to hold off a late rally by Kiwoom and secure the win.온라인카지노

Currently, KT’s infield consists of players in their 30s. First baseman Park Byung-ho is 37, second baseman Park Kyung-soo is 39, shortstop Kim Sang-soo is 33, and third baseman Hwang Jae-gyun is 35. Each and every one of them is a solid veteran, but at the same time, they need younger players to support them.

This is where young blood Lee Ho-yeon comes in to quench that thirst. Born in 1995, Lee is 28 years old. He joined KT on May 19 in a trade for pitcher Shim Jae-min. He can back up any position in the infield, and he has been a big help to KT lately, especially with his hitting.

Lee Ho-yeon is the young blood among the veterans. The picture continues to look ideal for KT and its fans.
