1st round of ‘second year high school graduate’ meeting with the command tower… what did you hear
“I met at the hotel sauna…”
Park Chan-hyuk (20) of Kiwoom’s 2022 round 1 is gradually raising his senses. However, in the eyes of director Hong Won-ki (50), it is ‘still’. The cause has been figured out. It is difficult to put into practice. I handed it over to you.
On the 2nd,메이저사이트 director Hong Won-ki said of Park Chan-hyuk, “I ran with Park Chan-hyuk in the sauna yesterday (1st). He talked for a while. Park Chan-hyuk was a rookie last year. Guess you just did it. As the second year progressed, I started to think a lot. He prepared hard, but he naturally has many thoughts.”
Park Chan-hyuk, from Bukil High School, was nominated by Kiwoom as the 6th overall pick in the 1st round in the 2022 rookie draft. He played 52 matches for the first team. He posted a batting average of .211, 6 home runs and 17 RBI, an on-base percentage of 0.274, a slugging percentage of 0.354, and an OPS of 0.628.
It’s not a great record. Instead, he showed enough power to hit six home runs. With a height of 180 cm and 87 kg, he is not a very strong physique, but it is evaluated that he knows how to put his strength. His punching power is something that any pitcher fears.
He is posting a batting average of 0.286, 3 RBIs, an on-base percentage of 0.318, a slugging percentage of 0.381, and an OPS of 0.699 in 7 games this year. He still has no cannons. On the 11th of last month, he was registered in the first team for the first time, and he was also expunged once.
Not bad lately. On April 30, he recorded 2 hits and 1 RBI in 2 at-bats against Lotte, and also scored 1 hit in 2 at-bats against Samsung on the 2nd.
He has a higher average than at the time of his first 7 games last year (0.250 batting average). He didn’t even have a home run in the same period last year. I mean he’s just as good this year.
The command tower also said, “Park Chan-hyuk’s recent batting balance is good. He made the run on the chance. The quality of his batted ball is good. He will keep coming up,” he explained.
Instead, there are some shortcomings. “Park Chan-hyuk prepared a lot during the winter. He also visited Geelong Korea. And then I got a lot of thoughts. Isn’t he still a young player? The second year is something everyone goes through.”
There were countless cases in which he was sluggish in his second year after flying wildly as a rookie. This is the so-called ‘second year jinx’. Since he is a rookie with nothing to lose in his first year, he rushes ‘not knowing how cool’ he is. It’s okay though.
However, in the second year, the experience of the previous year is accumulated. Information about ‘what to do when and how’ was accumulated. Since I’m trying to do better, I have to think about this, and I have to consider that too. And then twisted Park Chan-hyeok should be seen as going through a similar process.
I went to Geelong in the off season. He made a .188 batting average, 3 homers and 8 RBIs, an on-base percentage of 0.253, a slugging percentage of 0.377, and an OPS of 0.630 in 21 games. He has been doing a lot of defensive training as well. He wanted to erase the ‘weakness’.
Last January, Park Chan-hyuk said, “I caught a lot of practice batting balls in Australia. He received a lot of balls and gained a lot of confidence. He wants to overturn the assessment that defense is a weakness. Last year my score was 30. He will work hard this year,” he emphasized.
Director Hong Won-ki said, “It’s not that I’m just helping and giving advice. told me simply Grow through ups and downs. That exciting swing from last year doesn’t come out. It means a lot of thoughts. He shouldn’t be afraid to strike out,” he explained.
Also, “You shouldn’t shrink to deal with the changing ball. You have to make your own swing. There can be a lot of miss swings. Park Byeong-ho also swings in vain. same. We must not be discouraged,” he stressed.
