KIA 29-year-old outfielder, sprinting that left pain… Man of 0? A bat isn’t everything

The bat is not everything.

KIA right-handed outfielder Lee Woo-seong (29) played two games this season, but could not stand at bat. In fact, he reported a hit in the Suwon expedition against KT last week when he was blown away by rain. However, since he has not been officially recognized, he is still a ‘man of zero’ in terms of batting.

Lee Woo-sung’s greatest charm is his strong physique and one-hit power. But you know, he’s good at defense and running. On July 9, last year against Hanwha in Gwangju, in a crisis with 2 outs and 1st and 2nd bases in the top of the 9th inning with a 6-5온라인바카라 lead, Jeong Eun-won’s shot that flew deep into the left line was sprinted and thrown away to finish the game is definitely the highlight film.

On the 11th, Gwangju Hanhwa Electric could also be the main character. When Choi Hyeong-woo hit first base in the bottom of the 9th inning, trailing by 3-4, he made a sortie as a major runner. He continued to show a great sense of baserunning with the batted ball deep in the 3rd interval of 1st, 1st and 3rd basers Byun Woo-hyuk.

Hanwha shortstop Park Jeong-hyeon threw it to first base with difficulty, but it was difficult to catch Byeon Woo-hyeok. Lee Woo-seong, who was heading from first base to second base, was able to see Park Jung-hyun’s play head-on. When Park Jung-hyun threw to first base, he increased his acceleration. He went through second base and into third base. He showed great speed for his size.

SPOTV commentator Lee Dae-hyung, who relayed the game, pointed out that Park Jung-hyun should not have thrown the ball, saying that even a slow-footed batter lived on first base with the ball. If that was the case, it would be impossible for Lee Woo-sung to pass through second base and go to third base. That’s why Lee Woo-sung’s sense was excellent.

However, Lee Woo-sung could not be the protagonist of the end goal in a 4-4 tie. Han Seung-taek continued to put a squeeze bunt on the line from 1st, 1st and 3rd to 3rd base, but Lee Woo-seong tagged out at home. Hanwha closer Kim Bum-soo’s astute defense stood out. Lee Woo-sung hit catcher Park Sang-eon’s left knee with his left arm while sliding head-first into the home, causing great pain. KIA applied for a video review, but the judgment result did not change.

Commentator Lee Dae-hyung pointed out that there could have been a sign miss. There is a reason. First base runner Woo-Hyuk Byeon quickly cut off the start due to Han Seung-taek’s squeeze bunt, but third base runner Lee Woo-seong was half a beat late. When the squeeze bunt sign is given, the third base runner should dash home before the batter even bunts. This is because it is an operation to risk being caught in a rundown and attempt it.

However, it is not known exactly whether there was an actual miss sign. Rather, Lee Woo-sung tried to score at home somehow, even though he started slightly late. He did not hesitate to injure himself and pushed himself forward. Even though I didn’t score in the final, I did my best in my own way.

It is true that batters are treated first-class only when they are recognized as bats. However, it is practically impossible for all hitters in the first group to become like that. Someone has to be a backup, and there must be a player who contributes to the team with defense and running. Even with Na Seong-beom’s departure, Lee Woo-sung is not given many opportunities to step into the plate.

Coach Kim Jong-guk sends Kim Ho-ryeong to center field, places Socrates Brito in right field to strengthen the outfield defense, or sends Choi Hyeong-woo to left field to strengthen the offense. The starting left fielder is Lee Chang-jin. Lee Woo-sung plays the role of backing them up in Gongsuju. He doesn’t shine much, but he always spares himself to do what the team needs. He just needs to be prepared to shine even in blows one day. Whether he’s hitting, defending, or running base, chances come again.
