KBO to prepare for the introduction of ABS+Pitch Clock’s joint training between the referee and the recording committee in Masan-gu district office

The Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) held a joint adaptation training at Masan Stadium from the 14th to the 18th for regulations introduced into the KBO league in the 2024 season, including the Automatic Pitcher Judgment System (ABS) and Pitch Clock, which are piloted.여우알바

The actual mock test training was conducted at Masan Stadium, where ABS and pitch clock systems were installed, and the judges and recorders performed their roles as in the actual game.

In order to adapt to the pitch clock, which is piloted in the KBO League and introduced in the Futures League in the first half of this season, the team also conducted training to match the accurate judgment and coordination of the referee who runs the game and the recorders who measure the time.

In addition to adaptation training, actual competition tests were also conducted. In the matches between college and high school teams held on Saturday and Sunday, training was conducted to accurately convey ABS decisions, measurement of pitch clocks, and application of them to game management.

Prior to the training at the stadium, KBO held an educational seminar involving referees and recorders on the 14th and established simulations and communication methods for various situations of pitch clock.

KBO President Heo Gu-yeon attended a training session on the 17th, where the game between Dongwon National University of Science and Technology and Jeonju High School was held, and checked the overall operation status, including the judgment and measurement of ABS and pitch clock. In addition, he stressed that ABS is a very important change for fans in the new season to show more exciting and smooth games through fair and accurate strike zone decisions and asked them to prepare thoroughly for perfect operation.

Meanwhile, KBO dispatches referees and recorders to its own practice games between clubs in the future to continuously conduct actual adaptation training and testing. In addition, they tour the training sites of each club, including the United States and Japan, and hold briefing sessions for each team’s players for the stable settlement of the new introduction system.

Will it be weak or poisonous to the first and best trial since joining the club

Will this ordeal be a medicine or poison in the days ahead of the KBO league’s leading prospects.

LG Twins’ Kim Bum-suk is a player with potential that the league is paying attention to, beyond a team. He is recognized for his powerful performance, as he hit 10 home runs, the most by a wooden bat in his high school days.

LG General Manager Cha Myung-seok even nominated Kim Bum-seok last year and evaluated him as “a player who will become a pronoun representing the league beyond the proper noun Kim Bum-seok.”토토사이트

Kim Bum-seok faced a big ordeal even before he entered his second season. He was injured, but he had to leave as if he had been kicked out of the spring camp after being pointed out by the coach for mental problems.

Kim Bum-seok suffered a radiative muscle injury during a training session in Arizona, the U.S.

It is said that the severity is not serious. It is known that he is capable of controlling injuries while conducting exercise in a cautious manner.

However, LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop pushed Kim Bum-seok hard.

“Kim Bum-suk is a talented player, but he has to deal with his weight problems to advance to a higher position,” Yeom said. He instructed him to clearly maintain his weight during the off-season. Kim Hyun-soo, the oldest player in the team, also went on a strict diet during the off-season to perform better. However, he came to the camp without any preparation. As a result, he ended up with injury. He had problems even from his preparedness.”

Yeom had vowed to give Kim a chance.

He said he would use Kim as the second catcher rather than the third catcher to run the season three times. He said he would use Kim as the first catcher on the day off for Park Dong-won, not veteran Huh Do-hwan.

To that end, the spring camp even had QC coach Lee Ho-joon marked Kim Bum-suk in charge. However, Kim’s injury ruined everything.

“The coach and the coach promised to give each other a chance,” Yeom said. “How many players would get such a chance? However, Kim Bum-suk wasted the opportunity on his own. I missed several opportunities that would not come to my life.”

“This is the first ordeal I have experienced since joining the team. It will be a painful medicine for growth for promising players. Depending on how he or she overcomes this ordeal, Kim’s baseball life could change significantly.

There are also voices of concern. Critics point out that it is a level of ordeal that a young player cannot endure.

It is clear that there are voices of concern that it could be a mental trauma, not just an injury treatment. For a player who is just entering his second year, the coach’s public criticism is bound to be a huge burden. There is definitely room for psychological contraction with a significant loss of confidence. Coach Yeom’s public criticism may have an adverse effect.

Commentator A said, “I personally don’t know Kim well, but I think he must have been quite shocked by this incident. Rookie players have strength in having confidence and being able to bump into each other without fear. However, the incident has greatly dampened Kim’s spirit. I think we need to watch carefully how it will affect baseball going forward.”

KANGMIN said, “Why did you welcome him as a veteran?”

For Hanwha Eagles outfielder Lee Jin-young, the 2023 season was an unforgettable time.

Lee Jin-young, who was selected by the KIA Tigers as the 58th pick in the 6th round of the 2nd round of the 2016 KBO Rookie Draft, gradually announced his presence after moving to Hanwha in late April 2022. He played in 70 games that year, including the days of KIA, the most since his professional debut, and played 121 games last year.여우알바

He also displayed good performance in terms of his record. During the 2023 season, Lee had 89 hits in 358 at-bats, posting a batting average of 0.249, 10 homers, 50 RBIs and 0.738 OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage). As his value was recognized at the annual salary negotiations this winter, he paid 70 million won (79.49 percent) per year, up 31 million won from the previous year (39 million won).

However, it was more regrettable than satisfaction. “After some time, I realized that there were more things I could have done, but I still could not do it,” Lee Jin-young said ahead of the second match of the Australian national team’s practice match at Ballpark in Melbourne, Australia on Wednesday. “That would have been the best thing back then, but looking back now, I still have many shortcomings.”

Lee Jin-young, who also focused on making up for his shortcomings in this camp, said, “I came to the camp with my own plans, so I’m going to keep doing just that. Since new seniors came, I think I learned something new because I think I have to learn both aggressively and defensively. It was a more beneficial time than I thought, and I think I’m getting ready in my own way.”

“My first goal is to improve my performance, and even if I don’t play much, I’ve been paying most attention to that as I have to show what I’ve practiced or done on the field,” he said, adding, “I think I tried to improve my mind control every time I did that.”

The advice of veteran players such as An Chi-hong and Kim Kang-min was a great help. In particular, Lee Jin-young, who is receiving a lot of help from Kim Kang-min, who has the same position, said, “[Kim] Kang-min helps a lot. He says first, “Do this or do this.” There are some things I was curious about, but he told me first that I learned a lot about that. For example, I could throw the ball strongly in the past, but (the senior) said that I only had to throw it accurately rather than take a risk by throwing it strongly.”

Lee Jin-young also said, “Since there are 144 games, the more I play, the more fatigue I get on my shoulders, and they teach me a lot about how to manage that.” “I think I’m feeling what you’ve said because I have a long schedule as well as taking care of my condition,” he said. “I think a top-class player has come out of the field. I love what the coach tells me, but it feels different to talk to me as a player.”

Lee Jin-young, who grew up watching Kim Kang-min when he was developing his dream as a baseball player, said, “The atmosphere itself is different. The senior teaches me more, and I practice one more thing,” and expressed satisfaction, “The coach can’t tell each of the six to seven players, but I think that’s changed a lot with the senior coming.”

Lee Jin-young also asked Kim Kang-min for advice on mental health. Lee Jin-young said, “Because I’m not the main player yet, I have no choice but to think, ‘There’s no next time,’ and that’s why it was very hard in terms of mental health if I didn’t play one game,” adding, “Kang-min told me about his experiences, ‘It was hard for me when I played a lot as a main player, too.’ Listening to the story made me think twice, and he said, ‘If that changes, there will be more positive aspects in the stadium.'”

Having made up his mind, Lee Jin-young dreams of a better season. “My condition has changed a lot depending on my mood every day, but if I keep my composure, I think I will have more opportunities,” he said. “I want to show better performance in all figures, including batting average. Records show that I am working hard, but if the figures are better, I think I will be satisfied with that.”

Lee Jin-young, who didn’t forget to mention his fans, said, “I feel that there are more people cheering for me than last year. I think I have a chance to show more if I keep doing it for a season without getting hurt.”

At the stadium, at the ‘Yumgalyang’ training site, ‘Yumtail’ is expected to be a masterpiece in the 2024 season

LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop is leading the spring camp with detailed guidance.

Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop came to the ground early in the morning to watch the players’ training.

Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop, who was watching the infielders’ defensive training, demonstrated himself with his gloves on.

Manager Yeom showed a series of movements from port preparation to port movement to Kim Bum-seok, who is preparing for first base after Moon Bo-kyung and Shin Min-jae, and Kim Sung-jin, who turned from catcher to infielder.

He also gave advice on batting.

Manager Yeom Kyung-yeop, who ranked Song Chan-ui, who showed strong batting in exhibition games last year, as the top backup in the outfield line of Kim Hyun-soo, Park Hae-min, Hong Chang-ki and Moon Sung-joo this season.

The team is often assigned to batting group A, where sluggers such as Kim Hyun-soo and Oh Ji-hwan belong, so that sluggers can learn batting performance from their seniors. Coach Yeom, who was watching the training, gave advice by holding the bat in person and demonstrating swing performance.

Manager Yeom Kyung-yeop’s affectionate advice and guidance did not discriminate against rookies and veterans. While watching the training, he immediately gave advice and helped the players improve quickly.

Manager Yeom Kyung-yeop, who has to fill the gaps of Ko Woo-suk, Ham Deok-ju and Lee Jung-yong who left, visited the bullpen every day to look at new faces and advise them.

Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop emphasized, “Here we go again,” leaving behind last year’s unified victory.

Players are no longer drunk on the joy of winning and are creating an atmosphere to start all over again for the new 2024 season’s top Mercury.

The Arizona camp, which will run through March 4, attracted 19 players including manager Yeom Kyung-yeop and his coaching staff and 42 players including captain Oh Ji-hwan. During the camp, the team will hold practice matches against NC on February 26 and 29.

What’s your first career high of hitting a .300, ‘Idol’ coach?

Lee Woo-sung (29), who inherited No. 25 as Kia Tigers coach Lee Bum-ho, is also drawing attention as he took over the position. Over the past two years, he has received various practical assistance as a batting coach, and has actually achieved good performance for the second consecutive year. This year, he is challenging to hit the regulation mark for the first time since his debut. Now, attention is focusing on whether he will become a man of idol stars.

Upon his retirement in 2019, Lee handed over his badge to Park Chan-ho. He dressed Lee in a uniform with No. 25 embedded in him at the retirement ceremony. Park was the third baseman. Naturally, his badge also became Park’s. He also expressed his ambition to become a big player like him.

However, Park took the lead from the third baseman to the starting shortstop, but his bat was the problem. He humiliatingly recorded the lowest batting average (.223) in the 2020 season. He only posted 246 percent in the 2021 season. He had a different image from Lee’s 329th career home run. Perhaps that’s why he changed his mind to No. 1 from the 2022 season with a renewed mind. It was his favorite number.룸알바

At the same time, Lee was named as the new owner of the 25th game. Of course, Lee’s permission enabled him to inherit the game. Lee transferred to KIA after Lee Doo-san and NC Dinos, but the situation did not turn out well. When Lee transferred to KIA, he had high expectations as the next generation giant, but suffered injury in the first year and rarely had a chance to rebound. To Lee, Lee was an icon. Born and raised in Daejeon, I watched a lot of Hanwha games. Lee, who led Hanwha’s batting lineup with Kim Tae-kyun, was fascinated by Lee.

When his idol was assigned to his team, he immediately put it on his uniform. Perhaps that’s why things started to go well. He played in 80 games during the 2022 season, posting a batting average of 292 with one homer, 12 RBIs and 23 runs scored by OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage) of 0.736. Although he played only 137 times at bat, he faithfully served as a backup man, including a pinch runner and made the roster of the first team for 178 days, the most since his debut. His potential has finally begun to emerge.

The 2023 season has been even brighter. He filled in the vacancy of outfielder Na Sung-bum, who was sidelined due to injury, and played 400 times at bat in 126 games. He also posted a batting average of .31 with eight homers, 58 RBIs and 39 runs scored with an OPS of 0.780. He played as a key player in the offense and defense. He showed off robust batting performance in chances, including a home run that changed the course of the game. He also hit a grand slam and received autographs from Lee, who holds the record of 17 overall.

Lee, who served as the batting coach for Lee’s leap forward over the past two years, also helped him greatly. He has demonstrated his know-how in batting, ranging from timing to technique and posture. With good performance, he has earned his first annual salary of over 100 million won (130 million won) for the first time. As he plays outfield and first baseman this year, he is also expected to have his first career homeruns, as well as his first two-digit percentage.

The idol, who had been guiding the batting until the beginning of the Canberra camp, suddenly became a coach. Suddenly, the weight of Baebeon was added. Lee Woo-sung’s lackluster will is likely to strengthen his will.

“We need to maximize players’ abilities”… What will coach Lee Bum-ho do for KIA

“We will create an environment where players can play baseball comfortably and bring out the maximum of their ability to play baseball.”

The baseball pursued by KIA Tigers coach Lee Bum-ho was solid.

Lee was appointed as the 11th Kia manager on Wednesday. Lee, who retired after the 2019 season, served as the Futures (second tier) coach, batting coach for the first tier and scout for four years at Kia. It is the first time that Lee has served as the coach of a first tier team.꽁머니

“I’ve watched all the players train in the first spring camp,” said Lee, who led the team as soon as he became the official head coach. “I’m doing well to figure out the players,” adding, “In the second spring camp, we need to focus on the actual games. We will organize rotation according to the games and check the conditions.”

At the upcoming camp, Lee has instilled a sense of psychological stability in the players, saying, “I want them to play baseball comfortably and without feeling nervous.” “I want them to play baseball without fear. That way, I can maximize my abilities. I will prepare for the best performance by creating a situation where I can show my skills,” Lee said.

During his playing career, Lee served as a top third baseman in the league under the guidance of several heads of teams including Kim In-sik, Cho Bum-hyun, Sun Dong-yeol and Kim Ki-tae. During his coaching years, Lee assisted Matt Williams and Kim Jong-kook.

Lee, who has various experiences, said about his baseball colors, “I will make it possible for players to play baseball in comfortable situations and bring out the maximum that they can perform. I want them to go out and show their abilities.”

The last time KIA won the Korean Series was in 2017. Coach Lee, who was the captain at the time, led his teammates and enjoyed the honor of winning the team’s unified title.

Now, Kia aims at taking the helm as a manager. With stable performance in offense and defense, Kia is considered a favorite along with the LG Twins and KT Wiz this year.

“We are focusing on winning the championship this season. All players must see and work together to achieve their goals as one. A team cannot rise to the top with just one player’s efforts. We will aim for the goal together,” Lee said. “We need to create an environment to reach the top.”

“Thri Punch, I’m confident no matter where I get stuck”. I’m so sure. What did you see

SSG had trouble deciding on foreign pitchers ahead of this season. Roenis Elias and Kirk McCarty, who were together for the last season, showed poor performance. It was a little disappointing to renew the contract, but it was a little disappointing to throw them away.퀸알바

As a result, Elias renewed his contract, McCarty released him, and a new foreign pitcher named Robert Duggar was selected. It was natural that attention was focused on the results because foreign pitchers accounted for a large portion of the rotation, not to mention the importance of starting rotation during the long season. On top of that, three players had to take the starting mound, including native ace Kim Kwang-hyun, whose performance fell slightly last year.

Then, what kind of process is the starting pitcher three-punch? To sum up, SSG coach Lee Sung-yong, who is leading the spring camp at the Jackie Robinson Training Center in Vero Beach, Florida, expressed satisfaction. Kim Kwang-hyun is in better shape, Elias has confirmed his performance, and he is proving to be a better pitcher than expected. “I am interested in starting pitchers four to five, and I think I will be confident no matter where I play for No. 1 to No. 3,” Lee said. He shows strong confidence.

Elias, who joined last year as an alternative foreign player, is preparing for his first full-time season in normal condition. Manager Lee compliments that although he is old, he has no particular problem with his physical condition and is certainly highly technical. Elias was not very good with a 3.70 ERA in 22 games last year, but at the end of the season when he adapted to the KBO League, he played a great role and contributed greatly to his team’s third-place performance.

Manager Lee and other SSG officials explained that they expect to see better performances this year as well as their role as a leader who leads Duggar well. “A few days ago, I asked them to have a meal with foreign players and talk about what they want to say,” Lee said. Elias said thank you even more. “It’s the first time I’ve heard ‘thank you’ from a foreign player,” he chuckled.

“I think it will be really fun,” Lee said, expressing expectations for Duggar. “When I watched the video, I thought it would be a little difficult to set the timing because there was fighting on the mound, deception, and fast arm swing,” Lee said. “But I think it will be really hard to hit a rising fastball because the sweeper is good and I think it will be really hard to hit a rising fastball. He plays with cutters, changeups, breaking balls and so on. I saw him pitch at the batter’s box, but I couldn’t hit him. He threw 150 kilometers, but when I was asked ‘what kind of professional he is now’, he said it was 80 percent,” Lee said.

He also expressed strong faith in Kim. He is confident that he is an ace in both performance and character. “I heard that he is in good physical condition including his shoulder. He looked fine when pitching, and he was good when he pulled his juniors well and stood at the center,” Lee said, adding, “I liked his bullpen pitching as well,” expecting his role as a native ace this year as well.

Meanwhile, Elias and Duggar held their first live pitching on Wednesday (Korea Standard Time). Kim Kwang-hyun also warmed up by pitching in the bullpen. “I am thinking about getting one free and one free and two free starters,” Lee said. “I told Bae Young-soo to prepare for the bullpen session as I will get the timing to change pitchers quickly.” Notably, he cannot tell younger players to “get over it.” The player could go wrong. “I will continue to test players who can throw two to three innings and widely recruit them,” Lee said.

Na Sung-beom, who KIA manager Lee Bum-ho looks at sadly, said, “I won’t do that anymore.”

KIA manager Lee Bum-ho is concerned about his possible injury. He boasts so spectacular a member that he calls the team “super team,” but there are still questions about his backup skills and capabilities to support his starting lineup. “Best 9 is a team that can produce good results if it joins the game,” Lee himself said.꽁머니사이트

There is no room to think about the future as the spring camp, which started at Nabunda Ball Park in Canberra, Australia, was appointed as a coach for a total of 900 million won for two years on the 13th. It is a situation where we have to shout the so-called “winnow” because it is a member who needs to win within the term. Coach Lee also said honestly, “I’m afraid of the back without a player, but I’m so happy that I don’t think there’s anything I can do if the current member doesn’t get hurt.”

The cause for concern over injury is that he has learned from experience. On August 7, 2011, the first year after joining Kia, he injured his hamstring in a match against Munhak SK (currently SSG). As the opponent team’s catcher pulled out while he was rushing to the home, he hurt his thigh muscles as he tried to slide and just ran.

“The RBI king was a mess,” Lee said. “When the game started, Lee Yong-kyu and Kim Sun-bin provided runners on the first and third bases, and an RBI single day was unfair.” Lee recalled, “The team also ranked first, but after I got hurt, the center hitter became like a domino and instantly fell to the fourth place.”

Kia entered a dark period with Lee Hae-chan as the last player. It repeatedly suffered from deteriorating team performance as key players got injured during the early days of the season. Last year, it fought for third place until the end of the season, but ended up in sixth place due to injury.

Due to the nature of the team, which rarely closes the gap between the main player and the backup, we have no choice but to pay attention to the injury of the main player.

The person I am most concerned about is Captain Na Sung-bum. When he was working at NC Dinos in 2019, Na seriously injured his thigh muscle by 7 centimeters last year. “I thought it would not be a big problem when I first injured my thigh. I had to return to the hospital after complete rehabilitation, but I was in a hurry due to the team’s situation,” Lee said.

“(B) Seong-beom also hurt his hamstring for the first time, and he did 100% of everything even after he returned. Even now, I feel like I’m leaning even when I’m standing up straight,” he said.

After hearing Lee’s concern, Na said, “I try to play just 80 percent of the time. The coaches say, ‘Just hit a home run and run slowly,’ but it’s not as easy as they say. I’m conscious, but it’s not going well because it’s a habit that I got into my body.”

Is there a reason why running full speed on a pitcher’s ground ball has become a habit? “I think it was when I was a rookie, but NC manager Kim Kyung-moon replaced him after his first at-bat. I ran without realizing it after hitting a pitcher’s ground ball, but when I played defense rotation in the inning, I got a replacement sign from the bench,” Na said in a confidential statement.

“He seemed to be disappointed that he didn’t do his best as a rookie. He was scolded a lot even after the game. I can’t forget what he said to me, “Do your best even in small plays until you quit baseball, and remain a player who doesn’t forget the basics.” So even if I think in my head that I’m out, my body is running 100 percent full speed.”

Na Sung-beom, who welcomed the appointment of coach Lee more than anyone else, said, “I’m so happy to have someone who knows the team well, someone who has continued to live together and gave me a lot of positive energy as a coach. I want to work hard so that I don’t become a single person and share the honor with the fans.”

Because I hated myself in the mirror”… Jo Yi-hyun lost 14kg → I clenched my teeth

During the last season, I stood in front of a mirror suddenly. I hated to see how fat I looked. My performance didn’t turn out as I wanted, either. Throughout the winter, I lost 14 kilograms through strict diet management and exercise. “I wanted to play baseball well, so I lost weight,” said Joey Hyun, a right-hander who met at the Iksan national baseball team training center in North Jeolla Province, a spring camp site for the KT Wiz Futures (second division) team.

Joey Hyun, who was drafted 47th in the second round of the fifth round by the Hanwha Eagles in 2014, made his debut in the first division of the year. After the end of the 2015 season, pitcher Jung Woo-ram of the Hanwha Eagles joined the SK Wyverns (currently the SSG Landers) as a free agent transfer compensation player. After serving in the Sangmu baseball team, he returned to the team. After the end of the 2022 season, the SSG decided to release him.

He built a new nest at KT in the last season. He played roles as a substitute starter and a long-relief. In total, he garnered two wins, one loss and one hold with an earned run average of 6.69 in 18 games and 35 innings. It was a disappointing performance.

“I felt like I couldn’t pitch well because I gained weight, and I felt like I lost my speed because my body slowed down,” Jo said. “I decided to lose weight because I’ve never lost weight properly. I lost 14kg and ate well while exercising, so I gained 2kg again.”

“I told him that I would lose some weight in the training part. I lost a lot of weight in a short period of time and was told to stop now,” he said. “I’m okay when I do weight training in the training part, but I can lose strength quickly when I pitch. I’ll work harder and fill up the load well.”

From December last year to January 10, I was on a daily diet. I ate only one small piece of instant rice, two chicken breasts and a salad. I ate three meals a day and maintained that diet for more than a week. Cheating Day, in which people eat whatever they want, was not allowed at all.퀸알바

“I thought I would gain more weight on Cheating Day,” Joey-hyun said. “After losing weight, my body’s rotation has definitely improved compared to last year. It’s much better.”

At this year’s spring camp, the camp focused on “restraint.” “I always feel sorry for my speed. Last season, I felt like I was pushing the limit,” Jo said. “The maximum speed of fastballs at the end of last year came out to 144 kilometers per hour. The goal for this season is 142 kilometers per hour on average, up to 145 kilometers per hour. It may not be as easy as I would like, but I want to try it.”

“I think ball speed is an individual’s ability and capability. When you look at middle pitchers in our team, they basically hit 145 kilometers per hour or higher,” Jo said. “If the fastball is slow, you have to make sure you have a breaking ball, but I think both of them were in limbo. I want to make up for it more.”

“My goal for this season is not that big. I am dreaming of 40 to 50 innings, which is more than last year’s 35 innings.” Jo said, “Objectively, it is difficult for me to aim for full time in the first team. I will start with 30 innings,” adding, “If I finish 30 innings, I will increase the number of innings each.” “If I make it little by little, I think I will reach my goal. I have done so every year.”

Joey’s most innings in a season were 77 innings (35 games, 2-4 losses, 5.96 ERA) in 2020 when he was a member of the SK Wyverns. In 2021, when he was an SSG player, Joey was in charge of 66 ⅔ innings (30 games, 4-8 losses, 1 save, 5.67 ERA).

“I think what the team wants me to do is to play as many innings as possible. I want to throw more. That’s why I always aim for more innings,” Jo said. “The more players go out to games, the happier they are.” Everyone wants to play every day. I want to take the mound more often, too.” Jo said. “I am not in a position to cover the position. If you let me throw the ball, I will pitch with ‘thank you.'”

Oh Jae-il, who has become unrecognisably sleek, said, “The weight will remain the same… The effect of limiting defensive shifts will come out.”

There are no two failures. Oh Jae-il of the Samsung Lions is sweating hard not to repeat last year’s regrets.꽁머니사이트

Oh, who displayed his troubleshooting instinct by hitting 20 or more home runs for two consecutive years in 2021 and 2022, played 106 games last year, posting a batting average of .233 (64 hits in 315 at-bats) with 11 homers, 54 RBIs and 31 runs scored. Injuries are also injuries, but they have been far from what he has displayed thus far.

Was it because he underwent intensive training all winter? He lost body fat and gained muscle mass. He looks sleeker at a glance.

“I’m feeling very well now. But I’m still in the same weight. Maybe it’s because I lost weight and gained muscle, but I think I lost weight,” said Oh Jae-il, who sweats hard at the Okinawa spring camp in Japan.

“I couldn’t play many games due to injury last year, so I underwent a lot of reinforcement training and gained muscle mass. I think it was possible thanks to your good management in the training part,” Oh said.

Starting this season, KBO decided to make changes by introducing an automatic pitching judgment system (ABS) called a “robot referee” and expanding the size of the base and limiting defensive shifts.

A defensive team must have at least four players on the infield and two infielders on the side based on the second base. Three infielders cannot be deployed per side. However, infielders are not restricted from entering the infield.

In addition, four infielders must be within the boundary of the infield dirt when a pitcher is standing on a pitch board. If the infielders are not properly aligned when pitching, the offensive team can choose automatic balls or batting results. Movement of outfielders is not restricted, but more than four outfielders cannot stand.

Oh Jae-il, who has suffered damage due to defensive shift, said, “If a well-hit ball is thrown out (due to defensive shift), it will affect psychology,” adding, “It is said that left-handed batters’ performance has increased since the Major League restricted defensive shift last year. I think it will certainly bring about meaningful results.”

Oh Jae-il is the best at first base defense in the league. His defense ability is unmatched enough to give stability to the entire infield. “Personally, I think I am confident in defense and have strengths, so if I play in many games, I think my team will improve,” he said confidently.

Coach Park Jin-man stressed, “I was very stressed as Oh Jae-il hit the bottom last year. Oh Jae-il needs to survive in order for our team to advance to fall baseball.”

If Oh Jae-il, who is preparing for this season with a determination of utmost pride, uses his solver instinct, wouldn’t he be able to look higher than last year.
