“Rather than conveying any special determination for competition, I would like to say that I am confident.”
He was as sturdy as he showed on the field.
When I saw Jamsil Stadium for the first time, I couldn’t hide my surprise, but I quickly pictured myself running through the vast outfield as soon as possible.
2024 LG rookie outfielder Kim Hyun-jong (19) boldly expressed his aspirations.
Kim Hyeon-jong, who is about to graduate from Incheon High School, visited Jamsil Stadium on the 6th with his classmates who will join LG in 2024.
Prior to the game, Incheon High School coach Ki-beom Ki’s first pitch and Kim Hyun-jong’s try-out ceremony were held. 카지노사이트랭크
After the 5th inning, he went up to the ground with his classmates and gave his first greetings to the fans.
In an interview with reporters, Kim Hyun-jong said about Jamsil Stadium, which he will experience in the future, “This is my first time here.
That is really cool.
My first thought was that I was excited and wanted to run quickly,” he said, looking on with interest as the game unfolded in the spectacle of a packed crowd.
He then said about the Jamsil outfield, which is the largest among Korean baseball stadiums, “I think I can catch batted balls here that I can’t catch in other places.
On the other hand, I also thought that it would not be easy to get over the fence.
Still, in the end, it’s the same ballpark.
I want to show that I can hit a home run while playing good defense he pledged.
As revealed in his pledge, Kim Hyun-jong is a 5-tool player who is good at both offense and defense.
He has quick legs, contact ability, and slugging ability.
He is considered the most versatile player among the 2024 draft picks.
In addition, he is a right-handed hitter whose role has been decreasing in the recent KBO league.
This is also the reason why LG nominated Kim Hyun-jong.
They use Jamsil Stadium as their home, which has a high proportion of left-handed hitters in the outfield and where outfield defense is important.
Active base running and bold hitting are the team colors.
In his position, Kim Hyeon-jong also wore a team uniform that suited his playing style.
When asked to introduce his baseball skills, he said, “My strength is that I am a five-tool player.
He may look a little rough, but I am confident that he can show off his good athletic ability in the spacious Jamsil Stadium.
He did not hide his confidence even though the outfield was filled with high-level players such as Kim Hyun-soo, Park Hae-min, Hong Chang-ki, and Moon Seong-ju.
He said, “I am confident about the competition.
Rather than conveying any special determination for competition, I would like to say that he is confident,” he said, showing his confident appearance.
The team’s expectations are as high as Kim Hyun-jong’s confidence.
LG general manager Cha Myeong-seok is planning for rookie fielders, including Kim Hyeon-jong, to participate in the training league starting on the 15th after completing the condition check of the rookies.
Kim Hyun-jong is participating in the National Sports Festival, but the National Sports Festival ends on the 19th, and the educational league continues until the 29th.
After the 19th, LG has 5 educational league games scheduled.
As early as the end of this month, we can see Kim Hyun-jong playing in an LG uniform through the educational league.
Kim Hyun-jong said, “I first said hello to coach Yeom Kyung-yeop, and he told me to become a player in the lineup shown on the electronic display.
The scouts also told me to work hard to be in the 3rd batting order of the lineup,” he said.
Of course, I want to be good at baseball, but I also want to become a player who has a positive influence through baseball.
When he was a freshman in high school, he developed a habit of picking up trash, and from then on, he became good at baseball.
He pledged, “I will become a baseball player who always does good things.”
In addition, we look at more dramatic scenes.
It is a battle with Kim Taek-yeon, who was drafted in the first round by Doosan and is currently wearing the same uniform.
In the Jamsil derby, Kim Hyun-jong can clash wearing the LG uniform and Kim Taek-yeon wearing the Doosan uniform.
Kim Hyun-jong said, “I have never been with Taecyeon before.
He has never faced one in the Blue and White Battle and has never faced one before in his high school days.
Still, I think I will win,” he said, showing his confident appearance once again.
