After a long wandering, he returned and is swinging a fire bat. But he will soon have to leave the team again.메이저놀이터
KT Wiz Kang Baek-ho is the main character. Since returning to the first team in September, Kang Baek-ho has been hitting hard with a monthly batting average of 3.466 li.
Kang Baek-ho has been starting as a designated hitter since the game against the Samsung Lions on the 14th. With Park Byeong-ho, who recovered from a calf injury, taking over first base, a position was also created for Kang Baek-ho.
And it shows its value. He is hot, hitting .388 1/300 (8 hits in 21 at-bats) in the last 5 games in which he started. In particular, in the game against Samsung on the 19th, he led the team to victory by posting 3 hits in 4 at-bats, including a home run, and 2 RBIs.
KT coach Lee Kang-cheol, who met at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 21st, smiled broadly and said, “(Park) Byeong-ho’s defense as a first baseman is not bad. Thanks to that, (Kang) Baek-ho is starting, and his hitting is really good.”
Soon a look of regret followed. His words, “I have such a good feeling, but I can only use it for two games. It’s such a waste,” were filled with earnest sincerity. KT is in a fierce battle with NC for second place. The challenge of Doosan, which has recently been on the rise with 8 wins and 2 losses, is not easy.
However, Kang Baek-ho will be called up to the Hangzhou Asian Games national team starting on the 23rd. Of course, KT is not the only team that suffers a power loss, but the head coach cannot help but be upset by the absence of Park Young-hyun, the core of the bullpen, and Kang Baek-ho, who is just starting to catch fire.
Coach Lee said, “He’s definitely changed. It’s really good to see him hitting these days. When I talked to him earlier, he said, ‘A lot of the things I’d forgotten are coming back,’” and repeatedly praised him, saying, “As expected, he’s a very talented hitter.”
KBO League officials put both hands together and hope for victory in the Asian Games. The same goes for Director Lee.
He also strengthened his resolve, saying, “We have to hold on well until Park Young-hyun and Kang Baek-ho return. I want to start the postseason in the highest possible position.”
Park Young-hyun, who is currently leading the division with 32 holds, is expected to be filled by Son Dong-hyun and Lee Sang-dong. Manager Lee said with a sheepish smile, “(Park) Young-hyun pitched over 70 innings. He pitched a lot. Because he is a very good pitcher.”
