Park Hae-min is aiming to hit .300 this season

LG Twins outfielder Park Hae-min is aiming to hit .300 this season. QC (Quality Control) coach Lee Ho-joon said, “If Hae-min doesn’t hit .3, I’ll resign.”

Coach Yeom Kyung-yup gave the main players Kim Hyun-soo, Oh Ji-hwan, Park Dong-won, and Park Hae-min goals for the season. Park Hae-min was given a “batting average of .300”.

Park, who joined Samsung in 2012 and moved to LG as a free agent ahead of the 2022 season, had only achieved a .300 batting average once before last year, in 2016. In 564 at-bats and 169 hits, he was 2-for-9, 9-for-6, or a rounded batting average of .340.

With his speed (four-time stolen base champion) and extensive outfield defense, Park has consistently posted a batting average between 2.8 and 2.9 every year. As a table-setter and sparkplug in the batting order, 스포츠토토 Park has been close to breaking the .300 mark, but has always settled into the .290s by season’s end.

When we met at spring training in Scottsdale, Arizona,

Park told us about Coach Yeom’s homework assignment, “Coach Yeom said, ‘I’ve actually hit 3 for 3 once, so I’ve always had the desire to hit 3 for 3. This year, the coach said that again, so I think I need to work harder and step up my game to make it possible for me to hit a 3-under.”

“I always go back and forth between 2.8 and 2.9, so I think the coach thought I had the ability to hit a 3 because he looked at my ability a little bit well, so I think I have the ability to hit a 3. I think that’s what he said, and I have to prepare well to be able to hit a 3.”

Every year, Park has been a slow starter in April with a batting average in the low teens or mid-teens, but by the end of the season, he would finish with a batting average in the mid-teens. But last year was different. The April slump disappeared. Last year, Park went 3-for-2 in April (28-for-87). He had six home runs for the season, but hit three in April.

“I was in good shape in April,” Park said of his April performance last year, “and I think it was because I built up my body quickly for the World Baseball Classic (WBC) in March last year. So I tried a lot to prepare for this season the same way I did in the off-season last year,” Park said.

Last year, he was unable to carry his good April form into the end of the season.

After September, his batting average dropped to 2.05 in 35 games. “I had a good start, but I didn’t hit well down the stretch.

To improve his batting average, Park said he needs to “focus more on accuracy.” “When I’m batting, I feel like I’m ‘here’ and I turn the bat, but I feel like I have a little less chance of hitting the swing spot. I think it’s going to be a battle to get a favorable pitch count, or how many in-play hits I can make without fouling off the ball when I turn the bat on the right pitch,” he said.

“When I’m not feeling well, my batting average goes down, and I think the key is to reduce those ups and downs,” he said.

Coach Lee Ho-joon, who watched Park’s batting practice at the camp, chuckled and said, “If Hae-min doesn’t hit 3 this year, I’ll resign.” After watching Park’s swing and misses, he emphasized the direction of his bat, saying, “I want to be a home run hitter,” when he hit a fly ball instead of a drive to the left, right, and center.

The KBO is introducing new rules this year,

Including an automated pitch judgment system (ABS), increased base sizes, and restrictions on defensive shifts. Park, who is quick on his feet, is eager to increase his stolen base numbers with the increased base size.

The bases at first, second, and third base will increase from 15 inches (38.1 centimeters) to 18 inches (45.73 centimeters), reducing the distance between home plate and first base and home plate and third base by 3 inches (7.62 centimeters). 온라인카지노사이트 The distance between first base and second base and second base and third base is reduced by 4.5 inches (11.43 centimeters). If Hae-min Park increases his on-base percentage to a triple-digit percentage, he’ll have more opportunities to steal bases and harass opposing teams.
