At the “2022 KBO Media Day” held at Grand Hyatt Seoul in the afternoon of the 31st, a subtle war of nerves between Puig and Oh Seung-hwan, who happened to be next to each other, stood out.
Kiwoom Puig and Samsung’s Oh Seung-hwan, who attended Media A, were placed next to each other on stage. The two players, who faced each other for the first time, felt an atmosphere.
Oh Seung-hwan, eight years older than Puig, first pointed to Puig’s hat and asked a question about the phrase “captain” and then showed a meaningful smile. The nicknames of “Leader” and “Last Edition Leader” were crossed.
Puig said, “The No. 1 caution target is Doosan,” adding, “I want to beat Fernandez.” “I lost against Doosan last year, so I have to win,” he said. Kiwoom knelt down to Doosan in the wild card game last year. Fernandez vowed to “compete in good faith with Puig.” 토토
Kiwoom’s “Wild Horse” Puig has a batting average of 0.222 with one home run, six hits, and four runs as of the 11th. Samsung’s Oh Seung-hwan has two saves in two innings.
Meanwhile, 2022 professional baseball, which opened on the 2nd, will allow 100% of spectators to enter from the opening game according to government guidelines. As eating is allowed, chicken and beer (chicken and beer) is also possible. However, support for fostering is prohibited.
Doubleheaders, special suspended games, and Monday games, which were operated in consideration of the COVID-19 situation and international competition schedules until last year, will not be organized this year. The overtime, which was temporarily out of operation in the second half of last season, runs until the 12th inning.
