Lee Won-seok (Kiwoom Heroes), who returned to his parents’ home in Daegu, contributed to the team’s victory by wielding two hits.
Lee Won-seok started as a 5th hitter and 1st baseman in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League visiting game against the Samsung Lions held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 2nd, and played an active role with 2 hits in 4 at-bats.
On this day, Lee Won-seok visited Daegu for the first time since the trade. On the 27th of last month, Lee Won-seok, who changed his uniform through a trade between Samsung and Kiwoom, visited Daegu wearing a burgundy uniform and played against his former team.
Lee Won-seok, who met with reporters before the game, said, “I feel strange. He always works out on the other side (third base dugout), but it feels a little strange because he works on the other side,” he said, revealing his feelings about finding his parents. Lee Won-seok also had time to bow his head to Samsung fans before entering the plate in the beginning of the second inning.
But the fight was cold. On this day, Lee Won-seok hit two hits and harassed his team. He created an opportunity with a heavy hit in the 4th inning, and in the 9th inning as the lead batter, he hit Samsung and shook the mound. Although he had no RBIs or runs scored, he energized the team’s batting line by steadily shaking the Samsung mound. 토스카지노
After the game, Lee Won-seok said, “I felt strange visiting Daegu for the first time after the trade,” but “during the game, I focused on the game as a member of Kiwoom. I am happy that the team won today,” he said.
Recalling the moment he greeted the Daegu fans, he said, “(Kang) Minho and Buchanan waited for us to greet the fans. “Thank you for being considerate,” he said, “I felt a sense of sadness, and I am grateful that the fans supported me a lot.”
On the other hand, with two hits on the day, Lee won-seok reached 13 consecutive hits and ranked first in batting average (0.400) and on-base percentage (0.494).
