“Certainly there is room.”
KT coach Lee Kang-cheol is very pleased with the performance of outfielder Moon Sang-cheol. Coach Lee smiled, saying, “I think I’ve gained confidence” when the story of Moon Sang-cheol, who has recently been wielding a hard hit, comes out ahead of the away game against LG in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Jamsil Stadium on the 17th. He said, “It was originally good to hit. In fact, the difference between the starting pitcher and a pinch hitter is one at-bat. It is not a game in one at-bat, but you can hit one (hit) in 3 or 4 at-bats. Sang-cheol will know that even if he doesn’t say it now. . I’m sure I can afford it,” he said.스포츠토토
In 2014, Moon Sang-cheol received the second special nomination from the new team KT and wore a professional uniform. However, Moon Sang-cheol only played 287 games in the first team stage until last year. He played in 74 games, the most in 2020, but has not filled 30 games in the last two years. He flew wildly in the 2nd group. He had a career batting average of 0.300 (544 hits in 1813 at-bats) for his Futures League career, with 123 home runs and 426 RBIs. In 2017, he was the Southern League RBI leader.
This year is different. He is maintaining a batting average of 0.353 (24 hits in 68 at-bats), 4 homers and 14 RBIs in 24 games with the first team this year. In particular, in the 10 games he played in May, he is very active with a batting average of 0.425 (17 hits in 40 at-bats), 3 homers and 8 RBIs. On the 16th, in the match against LG in Jamsil, he started a home run. Due to his recent performance, he is expected to be placed in the center of the batting line for the time being. Even against LG that day, he started as the 5th batter and 1st baseman.
Director Lee said, “Actually, no one can hit a pinch hitter in that situation. When I asked if he was aiming for a breaking ball after hitting a home run, he said he hit it at the timing of the fastball. That’s how good it feels. I praised him saying, ‘You seem like a genius.’” laughed
