Lee Joo-Hyung Its a Burden to Evaluate

Lee Joo-hyung “It’s a burden to evaluate ‘Post Lee Jung-hoo’… Kiwoom fans don’t feel sad”

Goodbye to LG and tears… 0.368 batting average in 5 games after transferring to Kiwoom

Lee Joo-hyung (22, Kiwoom Heroes) is a player who is supported by Kiwoom and LG Twins fans at the same time.

Lee Joo-hyung, who was a ‘hotajun tribe prospect’ known only to field officials and LG fans, was traded to Kiwoom on the 29th of last month and emerged as a ‘topic figure’ in the 2023 Korean Professional Baseball KBO League.

Lee Joo-hyung moved to Kiwoom and opened the door of opportunity.

After the trade

Lee Joo-hyung made a big success with 7 hits in 19 at-bats (0.368 batting average), 1 home run, 3 RBIs and 1 stolen base in 5 games.

Lee Joo-hyung, whom we met at Jamsil Stadium on the 3rd, said, “I didn’t show anything at LG, but I received a lot of love from the fans.

I felt it more after being traded,” he said. “Kiwoom fans may not be happy with me yet.

I got a chance, so I want to be loved by Kiwoom fans as a result.” 카지노사이트

Kiwoom gave away starting pitcher Choi Won-tae to LG, and received beast Lee Joo-hyung and pitcher Kim Dong-gyu, the first round of the 2024 draft.

There are Kiwoom fans who feel regret when thinking of Choi Won-tae, a ‘definite starting pitcher’.

However, Kiwoom fans also welcome Lee Joo-hyung’s joining.

Best Active Star

Since Lee Jung-hoo (Kiwoom), the best active star in the KBO League, left after undergoing surgery on his left ankle, Lee Joo-hyung, who plays as Kiwoom’s center fielder, is more welcome.

There are many fans who call Lee Joo-hyung ‘post Lee Jung-hoo’ because of his fast feet, right-handed and left-handed hitter, and similar body shape.

Lee Joo-hyung said, “I’m grateful that you look at me well… but it’s too burdensome to be mentioned with my idol, Lee Jung-hoo.” I was cautious.

However, there are many baseball seniors who think of ‘old Lee Jung-hoo’ while watching Lee Joo-hyung.

Lee Joo-hyung also studied baseball by watching videos of Yuki Yanagita (Softbank Hawks) and Masataka Yoshida (Boston Red Sox), whom Jung-hoo Lee took as role models.

With his Kiwoom transfer, Lee Joo-hyung got a chance to show off his talent on the first team stage.

There was no place for Lee Joo-hyung in LG, which was challenging to win.

Right-handed left-hander Lee Joo-hyung, who joined LG with the 13th overall pick in the 2nd round of the 2020 rookie draft, was unable to break through LG’s thick field and only played 32 games in the first team.

He also moved back and forth between the infield and outfield to play for the first team.

Kiwoom guaranteed Lee Joo-hyung a starter and fixed his position as center fielder.

Lee Joo-hyung said, “I don’t think I’m a starting player yet. Director Hong Won-ki keeps giving me opportunities, so I want to repay with results. “

If you feel unsatisfied in the first at-bat, you can try something new in the next at-bat.

I will cherish each at-bat, and I will show a better image in the next at-bat.”

He also understands why he didn’t get a chance at LG.

Also, I studied while watching LG seniors.

Lee Joo-hyung said, “At LG, I was a ‘out-of-power player’.

However, I learned a lot from watching my seniors,” and said, “The time I spent at LG is very precious. I

learned more how precious that time was while transferring.”

After being traded, Lee Joo-hyung shed tears in an interview with LG club YouTube.

Lee Joo-hyung

Lee Joo-hyung was shy, saying, “It’s hard to explain what kind of feeling it is, but I was moved by the request to say something to my fans and seniors.”

He bowed his head to LG fans while standing at the plate for the first time in the game against LG in Jamsil on the 1st.

Lee Joo-hyung said, “Actually, I thought, ‘Can I say hello to myself who didn’t play a few games in the first team?’

But LG fans cheered for my greeting.” It also became warmer. Thank you very much.”

When Lee Joo-hyung was traded, LG seniors Oh Ji-hwan and Park Hae-min contacted Kiwoom Kim Hye-seong and said, “Please take good care of our brother-in-law.”

Lee Joo-hyung said, “LG seniors took care of me until the end. I really want to repay you.”

It melted into Kiwoom enough to say, “The biggest concern right now is that our team (Kiwoom) is in a losing streak.”

We are well aware that Kiwoom is the land of opportunity.

Games against LG

In the game against LG on the 3rd, Lee Joo-hyeong drew a two-run arch over the right wall by attacking Casey Kelly’s 134 km/h changeup, with 2 out and 1 base in the first inning, leading 1-0.

The ball flew 125m at 166.5km/h.

It was the first home run Lee Joo-hyung hit in 52 at-bats in 37 games.

On this day, Lee Joo-hyung succeeded in stealing bases and had a thrilling experience of walking out on purpose.

Lee Joo-hyung promised, “I will become a better player by keeping Kiwoom fans’ expectations and LG fans’ support in mind.”
