It’s like watching the heyday of 2014 when he hit 201 hits. Seo Kun-chang (LG Twins) successfully revived under coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop and finished the demonstration game with No. 1 in batting average and hits.
Seo Kun-chang recorded 2 hits and 1 base in 4 at-bats in the 2023 KBO demonstration game against SSG Landers held at Jamsil Stadium on the 28th. On this day, he was responsible for half of the 4 hits hit by the LG lineup, and he shone alone.
The uptrend in the exhibition game continued until the end. Seo Geon-chang has participated in 13 demonstration games so far and recorded a batting average of 0.362 (17 hits in 47 at-bats). He came out on top with an overwhelming batting average. Hits are also 1st overall.
Out of 13 games, there were only two games without a hit, and six games with multi-hits. He exceeded 40% in both on-base percentage (0.412) and slugging percentage (0.447). He also added 4 stolen bases. Even if he is called a Hota Jun tribe, he is an active player.
Seo Kun-chang, who won the Golden Glove three times (2012, 2014, 2016), made a name for himself as a second baseman representing the KBO League in the mid-2010s.
In 2014, when he was a Nexen player, he recorded 201 hits, becoming the first KBO to reach 200 hits in one season. This record still stands unbroken. At that time, the director who guided Seo Geon-chang was Yeom Gyeong-yeop.
Afterwards, Seo Kun-chang announced a new start in July 2021 wearing an LG uniform through a one-on-one trade with pitcher Jeong Chan-heon, who belonged to the LG Twins, but after coming to LG, his performance went downhill.
Seo Geon-chang, who participated in all games in the 2021 season and recorded a batting average of 0.253, 6 homers, 52 RBIs, 78 points, and an OPS of 0.693, last season only played 77 games, batting average of 0.224, 2 homers, 18 RBIs, 39 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.605. scored He had his worst season since 2012, when he started to establish himself as a full-time player.
I dreamed of becoming a free agent (FA) jackpot at LG, but it was a waste due to sluggish grades. After the 2021 season, Seo Geon-chang, who did not exercise his FA rights and chose to retake, gave up his FA rights even after the 2022 season was over. It was an inevitable choice.
A ray of light fell on Seo Geon-chang, who had nowhere to retreat. Directed by Yeom Kyung-yeop.
Manager Yeom Gyeong-yeop, who took the LG leadership from this season following manager Ryu Ji-hyeon, expressed his intention to use him as the starting second baseman, confident in the revival of his beloved disciple Suh Geon-chang right after he took office. The batting order also changed. Seo Geon-chang and Park Hae-min were appointed as table setters, and Hong Chang-ki, who had been active as a top hitter all the time, made a decision to lower the batting order.
It was a big adventure for LG, but Seo Kun-chang repaid coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop’s trust with a hard hit in the demonstration game. After coming to LG, he revived his fading presence with director Yeom Kyung-yeop,메이저사이트and was ready to face the second heyday. The important thing now is consistency.
If Seo Geon-chang continues the pace of the demonstration game in the regular season, the destructive power of LG’s batters will increase even more. Park Hae-min, who has both on-base and operational skills, and Hong Chang-ki, the ‘on-base king’, can complete the fearsome ‘9-1-2’ batting line. The desperate Seo Geon-chang aims for a great turnaround with Eun-sa, who raised him as a top hitter.
