“(Lee) Jung-hoo gave me two bats, and I’m going to start using them tomorrow.”
The praise of ‘the second Lee Jung-hoo’ is not false. Advice from a monster hitter challenging the major leagues is making super rookies fat.
Lotte Giants Kim Min-seok had a great success in his first leadoff sortie since his debut.
Kim Min-seok started as the first hitter and center fielder in the 4th game of the season against the KIA Tigers held at Kia Champions Field in Gwangju on the 2nd, and led the team to a 7-4 victory with 3 hits and 2 runs in 5 at-bats.
Kiwoom Heroes Lee Jung-hoo is the best hitter in Korea who won 5 batting titles last year and swept the MVP of the season. 2023 He also led the national team’s batting line in the WBC (World Baseball Classic). After this season, he is a big player who is also trying to advance to the major leagues.
Lee Jung-hoo has emphasized several times that his seniors, including Park Byeong-ho, Kang Jung-ho and Kim Ha-seong, helped him in his growth. And he is practicing it himself. One of the beneficiaries is Kim Min-seok, a junior at Whimoon High School.
From the first season of his debut, Kim Min-seok is facing expectations that transcend imagination. Even before his official debut, he went to Geelong Korea and received attention, and caused a sensation at the beginning of the season. 안전놀이터
There have been frequent no-hit games lately. It seemed that he had hit the limits of being a rookie. However, senior Lee Jung-hoo’s advice opened Kim Min-seok’s eyes.
Kim Min-seok, who we met after the game, laughed, saying, “When we met at resignation last weekend, he gave me a bat. The bat I used before broke today, so I plan to use it tomorrow.”
Even in high school, Min-seok Kim learned a lot from Jung-hoo Lee, who trained at an off-season school. In response to the question, “Do you have a story that comes to mind,” he explained, “When you hit the ball on your side, don’t try to hit it into the ground. Lee Jung-hoo, who gives advice, and the talent to put into practice after hearing batting theory are not common.
