“Now (hitting) balance is very good. I want to continue this condition in the regular season.”
The exhibition game batting average was 6.5 (13 hits in 20 at-bats). A monster lead-off appeared in the Lotte Giants.
This is Ahn Kwon-soo (30) from Doosan. Ahn Kwon-soo led the team to victory with 2 hits, 1 RBI and 1 walk in 3 at-bats, including the final hit, in an exhibition game against the NC Dinos held at Changwon NC Park on the 24th.
In the first year of the transfer, he is poised to become the leadoff and center fielder. Ahn Kwon-soo was also the main character who got on base with a hit prior to An Chi-hong’s two-run gun. He played his lead off role perfectly.
Defensive power is also a welcome rain for Lotte, who was uneasy in the outfield. Larry Sutton is heavily trusted by Lotte manager Larry Sutton.
Ahn Kwon-soo, whom I met after the game, was not excited. He was cautious, saying, “It’s just a demonstration game. I’m doing what I have to do now. Baseball is a mental sport. I have to play well as I do now during the regular season. I shouldn’t feel pressured.” 메이저놀이터
Last year, Doosan also recorded a batting average of close to 30% (20907). However, as his number of matches increased, his sudden physical strain was revealed. Ahn Kwon-soo also said, “Physical strength is the most important. I am managing it diligently.” Regarding the current condition, he said, “It is thanks to a lot of preparation for batting during the Guam and Japan (Okinawa) camps.” Regarding the manager’s trust, he emphasized, “I’m not sure. I’m just working hard. It feels good to win one today.”
He is the mood maker who dominates Dougout. Ahn Kwon-soo said, “I have been fighting a lot since I was in Doosan. I am also working hard at Lotte.”
Coincidentally, the opponent for the opening game is Doosan, the home team. Ahn Kwon-soo explained, “Of course I want to do well against my parents’ team. I want to stay in the same condition as I am now. I told my seniors, ‘Let’s meet before the opening’.”
