“Let’s go” A mischievous prank on the batting machine Kim Hyun-soo… a twisted day with even the defense “Concentrate and think”

 “Let’s go Palpun” As LG Twins’ flagship hitter Kim Hyun-soo entered the batter’s box, the juniors in the dugout mischievously teased the senior.

On the 27th, Jamsil Stadium held an exhibition match between the LG Twins and SSG Landers. Coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop replaced first baseman Lee Jae-won with Kim Hyeon-soo. Kim Hyun-soo, who started as the 5th hitter and first baseman, had not been able to stop the demonstration game without a hit until the game that day. 메이저사이트

KBO career batting average 0.316 2,093 hits It was an awkward situation that Kim Hyun-soo, the ‘hitting machine’, was not getting any hits. In the bottom of the 2nd inning, which was the first at-bat, it was a match against SSG starter left-hander McCarty. When Kim Hyun-soo, the oldest member of the team, entered the plate, cheers erupted from the dugout.

On a 1B 2S unfavorable count, Kim Hyun-soo pulled McCarty’s outwardly flowing slub and scored a right-handed hit. Kim Hyun-soo, who confirmed the batted ball, ran vigorously to second base. After requesting time, Kim Hyun-soo, who was handing over protective equipment from first base coach Lee Jong-beom, smiled shyly.

Even in the World Baseball Classic, it was fortunate that Kim Hyun-soo’s wild hit, which was not good at hitting with a batting average of 0.111, 2 RBIs, 2 walks and 1 run in 3 games, 9 at bats, came out even at the end of the demonstration game.

There was a humiliating (?) moment for Kim Hyun-soo, who finished the game with 1 hit and 1 run in 4 at-bats with a fly ball to first baseman, a fly ball to center fielder, and a strikeout after the first hit at bat. At the end of the 4th inning, which was the second at-bat, the moment Kim Hyun-soo entered the at-bat, a mischievous joke toward the batting machine broke out from the dugout saying, “Let’s go, Palpoon.”

The pranks of the juniors did not end there. When first baseman Kim Hyun-soo’s sloppy defense came out one after another, he shouted, “Concentrate and think,” and even made a direct statement toward the senior. At the beginning of the 3rd inning, 1 out and 2nd base SSG Seong-Min Choi’s mistake, a so-called “defense that sends the ball through the legs” mistake, and in the bottom of the 6th inning, pitcher Lim Chan-gyu, who changed SSG Jeon Eui-san’s batted ball, threw it towards 1st base, but 1st baseman Kim Hyeon-soo made a catch error. This came out and there were two sad scenes.

Commentator Jeong Min-cheol, who watched Kim Hyun-soo’s play, scolded him, saying, “(Exhibition game) players are assigned to various positions at the test level, but if you are an experienced Kim Hyun-soo, you should not play this kind of defense.”

The basis of baseball is defense. No matter how good a team is in offense, it is difficult to win a game without a solid defense. On this day, the process of giving 5 points to LG was accompanied by mistakes. In the 3rd and 6th innings, Kim Hyun-soo, 7th inning Lim Chan-gyu, and 8th inning Jung Joo-hyun made four mistakes and collapsed on their own.
