“It came out to some extent.” What is the last point of check by coach Kang-Cheol Lee, who outlines the batting line?
“It came out to some extent.”
The 5th World Baseball Classic (WBC) national baseball team led by coach Lee Kang-cheol showed a good sense of hitting during the joint training period in Tucson, Arizona, USA for two weeks from the 15th of last month (Korean time). In the first practice game on the 16th, the national team scored 14 hits against the NC Dinos. The heated sense of hitting did not seem to fade even in the KIA Tigers match on the 20th and the KT Wiz match on the 24th and 25th. A total of 46 hits were hit in the 4 practice games played by the national team.
Coach Lee experimented with different batting order during the practice game. In the beginning, there were some fixed batting order, with Lee Jeong-hoo (Kiwoom Heroes) leading off the line, while Choi Jeong (SSG Landers), Kim Hyeon-soo (LG Twins), and Park Byung-ho (KT) took turns in the center batting line. In the second half, Oh Ji-hwan (LG) and Kim Hye-seong (Kiwoom) showed off hot batting, making a big success in the upper and lower batting order, adding variety to Lee’s batting plan. Since the batters have excellent hitting feel, manager Lee was able to focus more on examining the mound that had not been inspected before.
In an interview with reporters after finishing the joint training at the Gocheok Dome on the 2nd, when asked if he had a match in mind, Lee said, “I probably shouldn’t go there as much as possible, but if I do, I think it will be important to shift the defense.” “Still, our hitters are hitting the bat well now (matching), so why don’t we get close?” he laughed.메이저놀이터
The outline of the batting line was somewhat captured. On this day, coach Lee watched the batting training of Tommy “Hyun-Soo” Edman (St. Louis Cardinals) and Kim Ha-seong (San Diego Padres), who joined after finishing their major league spring training schedule. These two are the final puzzle of the national team’s batting line. Manager Lee said, “Edmon and (Kim) Ha-sung do not play in practice matches with SSG Landers Futures (2nd team) on the 3rd, which is not an official schedule, but I am trying to see in which batting order the two can play well.”
Coach Lee also said, “The idea of the batting order has come to some extent,” and “Today (2nd), Choi Jeong and Yang Eui-ji (Doosan Bears), etc., were thinking about in which batting order they could play more comfortably, and decided a lot (batting order) on their own. same,” he added.
