He defeated Kim Seo-hyun, a special rookie of Hanwha.
Fostering native giants is a concern for all clubs. NC definitely gives me a chance this year. If there are no special variables, we plan to give Oh Young-soo (23), a left-handed big shot prospect, a chance to grow into a full-time first baseman. Sometimes, when left-handed starting pitchers come out, they just start on the bench.
On the 22nd, Oh Young-soo made three mistakes against Lotte in Changwon. It was all a catch mistake. All three shots were fast hits, but the scorers interpreted that Oh Young-soo had to deal with them. On that day, Oh Young-soo made 3 errors and had to drop out.
Of course, coach Kang In-kwon made it clear ahead of the Changwon Lotte game on the 23rd that it was not a reprimanding replacement. Rather, he explained that Oh Young-soo was concerned about losing confidence in karate. Afterwards, Oh Young-soo had no hits in three consecutive games, but on the 27th he had one hit against Gwangju KIA and two hits, including a home run, against Daejeon Hanwha on the 28th.
In particular, the highlight was the scene in which, in the top of the 8th inning, with a 4-2 lead, Kim Seo-hyun, a newcomer to Hanwha’s top rookie, kicked up a 151km fastball with 1 company and 1st base, and scored a wedge superiority two-run gun. Ball count 2S, Oh Young-soo is at an absolute disadvantage. Even Seohyun Kim’s 151km fastball with 3 pitches penetrated the low outside strike zone. 메이저놀이터
At that time, Hanwha catcher Choi Jae-hoon got up slightly and induced a high ball. Kim Seo-hyun’s command was not good. Still, it was by no means an easy course to kick. Oh Young-soo pulled it with a full swing and crossed the fence. It was the moment when Oh Young-soo’s power and potential were clearly revealed.
In 24 games this season, batting average 0.203, 3 homers, 11 RBIs, 9 runs, OPS 0.664. If the average is low, long hits will eventually fall. For Oh Young-soo, to become competitive as a full-time first baseman, he needs to pay more attention to average and on-base rather than simply producing home runs. Of course, the defense also seems to need supplementation.
However, considering that there are not many young professional first basemen these days, NC’s training of Oh Young-soo is impressive. It is an appointment that bears side effects, but it is not easy to find a better scenario than this method. It is meaningless to try to address the departed Na Seong-beom (KIA) and Yang Eui-ji (Doosan).
NC needs a new power. Oh Young-soo’s two-run four played a decisive role in NC’s victory that day. As these positive experiences accumulate, the team and Oh Young-soo grow.
