KIA Tigers infielder Byun Woo-hyuk (23) showed a good hitting feeling from the first game of 2023. We are looking forward to camp results.
KIA won 9-5 in the second game of the 2023 KBO League season against SSG Landers held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 2nd.
Instead of Hwang Dae-in, who started as first baseman in the opening game, as the designated hitter in the second game, Byun Woo-hyeok was named in the starting lineup as first baseman and fifth hitter for the first time.
Byun Woo-hyeok, who transferred from the Hanwha Eagles, fired a preemptive solo shot against opposing starter Kirk McCarty from the first at-bat in the second inning. He walked in his second at-bat in the 4th inning and hit as the leadoff batter in the 7th at-bat. He went 3 on base in a multi-hit completion. 먹튀검증
After the game, Byun Woo-hyuk said, “I am satisfied that the parts prepared at the camp for both offense and defense went well after entering the season. There was a good result in today’s game, but now I’ve only played two games. He expressed his determination, saying, “I will maintain the feeling of hitting like now in the remaining 142 games.”
He also appreciated the power analysis team’s help. He said, “I received a lot of help from power analysis for targeting starting pitchers. He was aware of his propensity to pitch aggressively even at unfavorable counts for batters, and he said that swinging with a fast ball in mind led to good results.”
Also, the defensive training with defensive coach Park Ki-nam was helpful. He said, “The defense seems to have improved a lot while training with coach Park Ki-nam. Preparing by warming up before the ball came in helped a lot in setting the bounds.”
Byun Woo-hyuk said, “I am grateful that many fans came to visit us even though it was an away game. Rather than being nervous, I was able to play comfortably thanks to the support of the fans. I will do my best to show a good image to the fans in the rest of the regular season.”
