Have confidence”…Kang Baek-ho’s first home run in 2023, which the command tower paid attention to
Kang Baek-ho (24, KT) hit a meaningful 토토사이트 home run wearing the Taegeuk mark.
Kang Baek-ho, who is preparing to participate in the World Baseball Classic (WBC) by joining the baseball team, hit a two-run home run in a practice match against NC held at the Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona on the 17th. In the bottom of the second inning, NC right-hander Song Myeong-ki pulled the ball and hit a home run with Woo Joong-wol.
After hitting a large bat during batting practice before the game, he started his first real game this year with a home run. He had a hit in the last at-bat in the ninth inning, and was the only one among the national team hitters who started that day to get two hits.
After the game, Lee Kang-cheol, the national team coach, said, “Currently, (Kang Baek-ho) is in good shape. Today’s home run is important to me and will help the team. Above all, I think it is a meaningful home run that can be a reversal before Kang Baek-ho starts this season. He seems to be able to become more confident,” he said.
Coach Lee Kang-cheol is the national team coach, but he is also the team leader of Kang Baek-ho. This is the reason why we can expect and give meaning to Kang Baek-ho’s home run.
Kang Baek-ho is working hard ahead of this season. Since his debut, he has only been on the rise. Last year, he was only able to play half of the season due to two injuries, and his momentum was dampened for the first time. It was a season where he had to regain his pride, but he was selected as a national team member, and Kang Baek-ho had an opportunity to restore his pride and show his true worth through the WBC. He is preparing really hard. Coach Lee Kang-cheol expected that the home run he hit in his first game wearing his national team uniform could be an opportunity to restore Baek-ho Kang’s lost confidence and turn the season around.
Kang Baek-ho’s performance could change the national team’s lineup. Kang Baek-ho, who is likely to play as a designated hitter, is likely to be in the bottom line for now. However, the condition at the time of the competition is the most important for him. He said the tournament is only three weeks away. If Kang Baek-ho continues to show good sense through the rest of the game, his batting order may change.
Kang Baek-ho, who lost first base to Park Byeong-ho last season while unable to play due to an injury, is preparing for the season with a feeling of starting again in defense. In his national team and his team, he shares the first base defense with Park Byeong-ho.
Manager Lee Kang-cheol said, “Kang Baek-ho’s first base defense has also improved a lot. Park Byeong-ho is almost in charge of teaching, and it has stabilized and improved considerably. I see Kang Baek-ho’s changed a lot. I’m trying to learn more diligently,” he said, paying attention to Kang Baek-ho’s change.
This season, Kang Baek-ho needs a ‘reversal’. Kang Baek-ho, who prepares for the season with his earnest heart, made it through his first real match wearing his national team uniform.
