Seo Kun-chang of the LG Twins ranked first in batting average in the exhibition game, signaling expectations for a revival this season.
The final match between SSG 카지노and LG held at Jamsil Stadium on the 28th. Seo Kun-chang played in the starting lineup as the first hitter and second baseman.
Seo Kun-chang went on base with a heavy hit against SSG left-handed starting pitcher Oh Won-seok in the first inning. It was a slightly delayed ball hit by his fast ball, but the course was good. He got a heavy hit as he headed to second base.
Seo Geon-chang, who reached first base, tried to steal second base against the Oh Won-seok-Lee Jae-won battery, but was caught in the pitcher check ball. He was tagged out at second base on a pitcher-first baseman-shortstop throw. Steal failed.
Seo Geon-chang struck a fast ball in the middle of the first pitch against Oh Won-seok after two deaths in the third inning and hit another heavy hit. This time, it was a proper hit. He hit consecutively until his second at-bat, going 17-for-45, raising his exhibition game batting average to 3.78.
With 2nd out and 1st base, Seo Geon-chang attempted to steal 2nd base again. This time, he landed on second base faster than Lee Jae-won’s throw and was safe. The follow-up hitter, Park Hae-min, withdrew into the infield with a ground ball and failed to score.
In the third at-bat from 2nd out 1st base in the 5th inning, the 3rd baseman was out with a ground ball. In the 8th inning, he hit a big ball against Park Min-ho, but the right fielder caught it in front of the fence. Recorded 2 hits in 4 at-bats. His final exhibition performance went 17-for-47 with a batting average of 3.6 and 2 runs. 1st place in batting average in exhibition games.
Seo Kun-chang was traded from Kiwoom to LG ahead of the second half of 2021. To strengthen their weak second base position, LG recruited Seo Geon-chang, using starter Jeong Chan-heon as a trade card. Seo Geon-chang, who was a reserve free agent at the time, only recorded 24 RBIs and 33 points in 68 games in the second half after transferring to LG. After the season, he qualified as a free agent, but chose not to apply and choose a second try.
I prepared for the season with a new resolution for the 2022 season, but it fell further. Injuries and sluggishness have reduced even the opportunity to play in the first team. He only played in 77 games last year, and was sluggish with a batting average of 2.2 4 and 18 RBI OPS of .605. After the season, he again gave up his free agency application.
Seo Kun-chang, who postponed free agency opportunities twice, reunited with manager Yeom Gyeong-yeop, who had been with the Heroes in the past this season. It is an opportunity for Seo Kun-chang. When he reached 201 hits in 2014, manager Yeom was with him.
Manager Yeom said, “When I was good in the past, my batting form disappeared. I keep changing my batting form, but if I go back to my batting form when it was the best, I can regain my old skills.” From last fall’s finish camp, he showed Seo Kun-chang a video of his previous batting and reestablished his batting form and direction.
Coach Yeom announced his intention to appoint Seo Geon-chang as table setter 1-2 from the spring camp, and had him play 1-2 in the demonstration game. Seo Geon-chang is slowly recovering from the blow with the teachings of his old master. The test match inspection is over. Now we have to show it in this game, this season.
