“A month and a half of slump couldn’t break 6 years of sweat”… Lee Jung-hoo is back

May 19, 2023 0 Comments

‘Genius hitter’ Lee Jung-hoo (25, Kiwoom Heroes) was revived. He is recovering from an extreme slump he has never experienced before and is looking for a good form.

Lee Jung-hoo started as the first hitter in the home game against the Doosan Bears in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 18th, and scored 3 hits, 2 runs and 1 walk in 4 at-bats, leading the team to a 7-3 victory. .

Although the result of Kiwoom’s three consecutive matches was 1 win and 2 losses, Lee Jung-hoo’s sense of hitting was hot. He had 3 hits in the 16th, 2 hits in the 17th, and 3 hits in the 18th, achieving multiple hits in 3 consecutive games.

In May, there is a sharp upward curve. He had a batting average of 0.218 in the month of April, but recorded a batting average of 0.333 in 15 games in May. Lee Jeong-hoo’s season batting average, which stayed at 0.230 until the three-game match against Doosan, rose to 0.267 with eight hits in three games.

Lee Jung-hoo expressed satisfaction with his recent performance, saying, “Personally, I felt that my senses returned when I was good from last week. And this week, the results are also following.”

Lee Jung-hoo’s reason for the rebound was last week’s 3-game series against the LG Twins. At that time, Lee Jung-hoo hit all three games. He had a total of four hits, half of which, two were extra hits. He also posted four RBIs.

Lee Jung-hoo, who recalled that time, said, “I wasn’t satisfied with the match result (1 win, 2 losses), but while playing against LG, the swings I wanted came out, and the quality and direction of the balls were good. The same was true of the NC game that followed. Since the hit hit came out, I thought that I just had to follow the results from now on,” he said.

Lee Jung-hoo has been on a winning streak since his professional debut, and last season, he won 5 batting crowns and even won the MVP award. That’s why the slump at the beginning of this season was unknown to Lee Jung-hoo, the team and the fans. In particular, the feeling of guilt that he couldn’t help the team as a captain made Lee Jung-hoo more difficult. Lee Jung-hoo also said, “I was very sorry because the team seemed to lose a lot because of me.”

However, I couldn’t stay down all the time. Lee Jung-hoo changed his mind to a positive one. He said, “Aren’t there more games to play than time to be frustrated alone? When I thought about how I could help the team in the future, I came to the conclusion that finding a sense as soon as possible is more urgent than regretting it.”

He continued,카지노사이트 “Since it didn’t go well, there have been many moments where I couldn’t believe in myself. But on the other hand, I thought that the one-and-a-half month slump I went through this season couldn’t beat the six years I sweated so far. I continued to control my mind while playing the game. “he added.

The batting cycle is finding its place, but Lee Jung-hoo is not vigilant. I’m about to invest more effort and time to keep the current sense steadily.

Lee Jung-hoo emphasized, “I will prepare well so that I can carry on as much as possible without forgetting this feeling. Now that it is getting physically difficult, I will do my best to manage my physical strength.”
