KT Wiz Kang Baek-ho’s goal for the season was an area that no one had reached.
KT coach Lee Kang-cheol said, “I talked to (Kang) Baek-ho, and he said that he set the goal for this season with 210 hits.” did. 먹튀검증
Kang Baek-ho played only 62 games last year due to two injuries, and his batting average was only 2.4 5 Lee (58 hits in 237 bats), the lowest since his debut.
Baek-ho Kang, who is desperate for strength, wakes up at dawn and arrives at the training ground ahead of the squad with Byeong-ho Park and prepares to restore his honor while practicing batting.
He also shifted his hitting timing from the front to the back, shifting his hitting direction to hit more solid hits than long ones. And he clearly revealed his direction to director Lee.
His 210 hits is a new record for most hits in a season in the KBO League. The record for most hits in a single season is 201, recorded by Seo Kun-chang of the LG Twins during his Nexen Heroes days in 2014. Afterwards, Lee Jung-hoo (Kiwoom Heroes) and Jose Fernandez (Doosan Bears) tried to reach 200 hits, but were unable to reach it.
Kang Baek-ho showed his intention to challenge a record that no one had achieved by changing the direction to hits rather than long hits.
Director Lee responded to Kang Baek-ho’s challenge. Director Lee said, “I’m thinking of putting Kang Baek-ho in number 2.” Cho Yong-ho and Kang Baek-ho will serve as table setters, while Anthony Alford, Park Byung-ho, Jang Seong-woo, and Hwang Jae-kyun will serve as the center batting line. Bae Jeong-dae, Park Kyung-soo, and Kim Sang-soo are in the lower lineup, which is Lee’s basic lineup. Of course, we don’t know if this lineup will make it to the start of the season. It may change according to various circumstances.
Still, Kang Baek-ho was placed second because his batting ability and on-base ability were highly evaluated.
It can be of great help to KT as well. Kang Baek-ho, who has the long hitting power to hit a home run at any time, can boost KT’s hit with ‘strong number 2’.
If Kang Baek-ho achieves his goal, he can also challenge for MVP. I am curious about the 2023 season of Kang Baek-ho, who has a poisonous spirit.
