LG → Doosan “100 points of satisfaction”… ‘Guaranteed 20 homers’ first baseman, ‘preliminary free agent’ entrusted to the sky
“We have to make sure there are no regrets.”
For Yang Seok-hwan (32, Doosan Bears), 2021 was a turning point in his life.
After joining the LG Twins in 2014, he raised expectations as a ‘Geopo Prospect’. He finished his military service by joining the Sangmu baseball team after blooming his skills by hitting 22 home runs in 2018.
With a batting average of 2.46 and 3 home runs in 40 games in 2020, he entered the postseason entry, but did not play.
Moving to Doosan by trade ahead of the 2021 season, he sharpened his blades. In 133 games, he batted 2.7 and 3. He hit 28 home runs, leading the team in home runs.
He was known as a ‘trade trader’ at once, but he only played 107 games last year due to injuries and slumps. Although his batting average remained at 2.44, he maintained his pride as a ‘giant first baseman’ by hitting 20 home runs.
Yang Seok-hwan looked back and said, “Before the injury, the season started off very well.
There is nothing more to say about his adaptation at Doosan. Satisfaction is perfect. Yang Seok-hwan said with a smile, “I think it’s 100 points because they say 100 points are perfect. They gave me a great opportunity, and I think I received more love because I did well. It seems like a good environment for baseball.”
After completing 2023, Yang Seok-hwan will qualify as a free agent for the first time in his life. He has a year ahead that is more important than ever for a player.
Yang Seok-hwan said, “With an important season ahead, I try to prepare as much as I can so that there are no regrets left.” I do not miss what is there and try to catch that part,” he emphasized. 토토사이트
The environment has been prepared to challenge ‘career high’. After finishing last season, Doosan appointed Lee Seung-yeop, the record holder for the most home runs in the KBO League (467 home runs).
Yang Seok-hwan expected, “I want to ask about this part because he pushed and hit so many home runs. I’m also curious about the number of targets.”
At the same time, there was an ‘umbrella’ on the other line. Doosan signed a 4+2 year contract with Yang Eui-ji for a total of 15.2 billion won to reinforce its power. Yang Eui-ji, who is regarded as the best catcher in the field, is expected to help Doosan’s center lineup as it has an offensive power capable of hitting 30-20 homers.
Yang Seok-hwan said, “There was only me (a long hitter) and Jae-hwan (Kim) in the team, so the check was more severe. As both of them collapsed, I wonder if the grades also plummeted.” I am looking forward to the arrival of a good player named (Yang) Eui-ji.”
Doosan appointed Heo Gyeong-min (33) as captain in 2023. He is one year older than Yang Seok-hwan. When Yang Seok-hwan also has to play a role as a senior officer. Yang Seok-hwan said, “Previously, older brothers who were older than me argued.
