Coach Jeon Dong-won, “Save Captain 0.169″ special hit at night…”The first year of 7.8 billion.” How frustrating it must have been

Yang Seok-hwan started as the sixth batter and first baseman against the Hanwha Eagles in Jamsil on the 11th. It was the first time in the 17th game that Yang Seok-hwan started as the sixth batter. Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop trusted Yang Seok-hwan and fixed it to the fifth batting order until the opening 16 games, but there was no sign of rebounding. The change in batting order was not the solution soon. Yang Seok-hwan had no hits and one walk in two times at bat. He had no hits in 14 times in five games from the game against Sajik Lotte Giants on the 6th to the day. In the meantime, he consistently got on base by picking out five walks, but there was no way to rejoin Yang Seok-hwan’s mind.

Doosan lost 0-3 due to Hanwha ace Ryu Hyun-jin’s six scoreless innings, falling from seventh to eighth with only seven wins and 10 losses in this season’s performance. As the upward trend of two consecutive wins has stopped, Yang Seok-hwan could not help but feel uncomfortable as a center hitter. For this reason, he took the bat to the ground again after the game. 파친코

The lights in the entire Jamsil Baseball Stadium were on while Yang Seok-hwan was conducting a special hit alone for about an hour. He built a simple batting cage and started batting with the help of management team staff. At first, he continued one-on-one training with his batting coach, Lee Young-soo, and even Kim Han-soo joined the team. Kim gave one-point lessons to Yang and gave active guidance on his batting. Kim Han-su and Lee Young-su stood by Yang’s side to watch the hit, while Koji Goto, the operation coach, stood near the second base to watch the hit. Goto was the main batting coach until last year. It could be said that all three batting experts in the team rushed to save Yang.

With Kang’s arrival shortly afterwards, Yang continued his training so that he would not feel lonely. Kang came out to the ground wearing gloves instead of a bat. He was with defensive coach Cho Seong-hwan. Kang did not record any errors on the day, but he has displayed lack of stability enough to make eight errors in 17 games. Instead, because he has the best batting performance in his team, Lee has not put any pressure on Kang regarding errors, which he himself has no choice but to pay attention to. Kang sweated a lot during the Pengo training with Cho for about an hour.

Even after finishing the batting, Yang talked with his coach, Kim Han-su, for a long time. As such, it can be said that he has a lot of worries about his current batting performance. Even after all the lights in the stadium were turned off, Yang couldn’t leave the ground. With Lee Young-soo alone, Yang continued his conversation by rotating the bat several times. Even after 10:40 p.m., Yang was on the ground with Lee. The game ended at 9:15 p.m. on the night.

Yang Seok-hwan is the most energetic player in Doosan. When Yang gets excited at bat, Doosan will also enjoy an upward trajectory. He has displayed outstanding leadership among players, and even served as captain ahead of this season. Although the captain’s armband may feel even heavier as his personal performance is not released immediately, he is not showing his team spirit in front of the players. Ahead of the match against Hanwha Eagles in Jamsil on Thursday last week, he is making efforts to boost team morale by making a “V7” ceremony and sharing it with players.

In order for the team to get more excited, Yang will have to pay off at bat in the end. As it is the first year of the FA contract with Doosan worth 7.8 billion won (6.37 million U.S. dollars) for four plus two years, Yang must have a strong desire to repay the trust, but his body is not keeping up with him. Immediately after signing the contract, Yang also expressed his frank desire to be reevaluated at the FA market four years later. To do so, he must quickly get out of the swamp of sluggishness this year.

Yang Seok-hwan is an example of how his baseball career blossomed when he transferred from the LG Twins to the Doosan Bears ahead of the 2021 season. Until last year, he had a total batting average of 0.267 (379 hits in 1,417 times at bat), 69 homers, 236 RBIs and a 0.788. His batting average was recognized as valuable as he ranked first in his team in the home runs and RBIs category during the three seasons.

However, he has shown sluggish performance in 17 games this year, posting a batting average of 0.169 (10 hits in 59 times at bat), one homer, seven RBIs and an OPS of 0.577. As he is still in the early stages of this season, he does not need to be frustrated, but his performance is hard to ignore. For now, he had a time to relieve his frustration by making special hits at night with his batting coaches. Will the special hit effect be seen at bat soon? With Kim Jae-hwan, Yang Eui-ji, and Kang Seung-ho in good batting performance, Doosan will have more strength to look up than now if Yang joins the team.
