‘Jamsil Geopo’ Kim Jae-hwan (35, Dusan Bears) has returned from a break to make a comeback.
Kim boarded a plane to the United States on March 26.
He has been considered a “key player” this season. Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop, who took over before the season, hoped that with Kim Jae-hwan as the center fielder, the entire lineup would be synergized. He also expected him to hit more than 30 home runs.
After hitting 44 home runs in 2018 to become the “Jamsil Home Run King,” Kim has consistently hit more than 20 home runs over the past three years while his batting average has declined slightly. However, this season, he batted just 2-for-2 with 10 home runs in 132 games, and he also suffered an injury late in the season.
Expectations were high as he signed a massive free agent contract worth a total of $11.5 billion over four years after the 2021 season ends, 카지노사이트넷 but he hasn’t quite lived up to it yet.
Kim Jae-hwan is also trying to restore his pride.
After the season ended, he participated in a wrap-up camp and received one-on-one lessons from Lee. Lee was the KBO’s leading home run hitter during his career. It’s been eight years since he’s played in Japan, but his 467 arches in the KBO remain his career home run record.
Kim Jae-hwan hit more than 600 balls a day, and Coach Lee watched and gave him one-on-one lessons.
At the end of the camp, Lee said, “I think he’s definitely changed. I think he’s definitely improved. Since we started with tee batting, not matches, there is no guarantee that my performance will improve. But I got enough practice I thought. It can be really tiring and hard to go man-to-man for an hour and a half to two hours with the bat, but I think I got through it. “I think I’ve got the first step down,” he said. “I think if I’m consistent throughout the month of December, I’ll be better in January, and then I’ll be better in February as I’m hitting the pitches that the pitchers are throwing and taking steps forward. In spring training and exhibition games, my problems will come back, but I believe that if I catch them little by little, I will be able to perform so well that I will forget about the two years of poor performance.”
Kim Jae-hwan’s ‘whipping’ didn’t stop. Without a long break, he traveled to the United States again and began personal training.
This season, Son has been training with Kang Jung-ho in the United States ahead of the season.
After batting just 2-for-7 last year, he batted 3-for-3 this year, ranking first in batting average and hits (187). Son said, “Kang Jung-ho helped me regain my good form. He was able to find his normal swing trajectory.” He plans to continue with the same routine after this season.
Yang also hoped for the “Kang Jeong-ho effect” from Kim Jae-hwan. “When I watched the video, I saw (Kim) Jae-hwan hitting hard. We talked a lot about this and that in the middle of the season, but he was having a hard time,” Yang said, adding, “I only gave him mental advice rather than telling him what to do.” “I think he’ll overcome it, and he went to my friend, so I’m sure he will,” he said.
Lee said, “I think he changed his mind a lot. We talked about the basics rather than instilling them. He knows it himself. During the season, we practiced too many different ways. We practiced a lot of different things, 온라인카지노 but we didn’t get to the point. We talked a lot more in this training than we talked from February 1 to the end of October.” “There’s no place to hide anymore,” said Kim Jae-hwan. We got to know each other more. We talked about problems and ways to improve enough. I’m so grateful for the final camp. We did enough. I was dying of exhaustion. It’s not all about the amount of practice, but the body has to remember good posture first. I think I got rid of all the bad thoughts in my head.”
