“I hope it will be a clear option”.
Doosan Bears young gun Lee Byung-hun (19) responded immediately to the command tower’s order. Appeared in a reversal crisis and lightly deleted two outcounts. He showed a strong heart not befitting a 19-year-old.
On the 18th, in the match against KIA Tigers held at Gwangju-Kia Champions Field, Lee Byung-hun threw a special pitch to calm the crisis. He took a 3-1 lead and tied the game 3-3, causing a crisis in the 8th inning.
On the mound, veteran Lee Hyung-beom got a one-out, but Kim Seok-hwan gave a right-handed hit and Byeon Woo-hyeok a left-center hit and was driven into a crisis. Coach Lee Seung-yeop put left-handed setup man Lee Byung-hun without delay.
KIA’s at-bat was Kim Kyu-seong, who hit a home run in an exhibition game. Lee Byung-hun threw a breaking ball in succession with the first and second pitches to induce a miss, and then threw a fastball toward the body for the third pitch and struck out. Kim Gyu-seong was unable to move and was beaten. Then Seung-taek Han lightly induced a ground ball to third base and ended the inning.
He was a promising player who joined as the 1st designated player in 2022. Last year, he only pitched in 9 games, but raised expectations in the fall and spring camps. He had a scoreless streak of three consecutive games until this day in the exhibition game. He has a presence like Danbi in the Doosan bullpen, which suffered from the absence of his left hand. 스포츠토토
Before the game, coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “I hope to be a reliable bullpen option. There are many left-handed hitters, so the role of left-handed pitcher is very important. I gained confidence that I can work in the pros while experiencing the 1st team stage last year. It gives me a lot of confidence.”
He continued, “I’ve talked enough about my responsibility and role, so I’ll be aware of it. I hope that Byung-hun will take on a better role. Now it’s up to me. I hope he concentrates on baseball and thinks about his position well. It’s good to have it, so he will play a much bigger role than I thought. I’m looking forward to it.” It was perfection that 100% lived up to the expectations of the command tower
