Excellent athletic ability, and a spirit that goes beyond that and a passion to throw the whole body.
These are modifiers representing Hwang Seong-bin (26), who caused a sensation with the Lotte Giants from last year. During the week with the LG Twins, ‘Elot Lasico’ was a series in which Hwang Seong-bin’s super catch shined for two days in a row.
In particular, in the game on the 31st of last month, in the 5th inning with a 2-0 lead, Park Dong-won’s batted ball, which seemed to cut through the middle left, was snatched with a picturesque dive and made a sacrifice fly. It was the moment when the team, including Lotte coach Larry Sutton, unanimously foresaw victory.
Seongbin Hwang’s super catch continued in the game on the 1st. In the 3rd inning, Kim Hyun-soo throws his whole body to catch a hit ball like a bullet on the left field line. In the 4th inning, Kim Min-sung caught a Texas hit by diving forward. It was a radical defense enough to worry about injury, but that’s why it was more like Hwang Seong-bin.
However, a decisive error in the first inning provided the cause of a 1-6 rout. At first base, he threw himself at Moon Seong-joo’s hit ball, but unfortunately missed the ball. Afterwards, in the process of hurried recovery, a bad throw came out, and the situation where it was supposed to be 1st and 2nd bases was changed to 2nd and 3rd bases. Starter Barnes allowed 4 runs only in the first inning, and the game slanted early. The solid defense that recorded the least errors (8) in May was shaken.
Lotte will play the first game of the weekend series against the KIA Tigers at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 2nd.
Lotte manager Larry Sutton, whom we met prior to the game, said, “Hwang Seong-bin is doing well, but there are some regrets.”먹튀검증
“I missed the sliding catch attempt yesterday, but I did well. But after that, I need to make up for the fact that I couldn’t catch the ball and throw it to the first cutman.”
Hwang Seong-bin was a player who played in and outfield until he was a student at Kyungnam University. As he does not have much experience in outfield defense, he has been intensively trained by coaches Kim Pyeong-ho and Jeon Jun-ho, but there may be weaknesses in the detailed basic skills.
Coach Sutton said, “It is important to maintain the strengths we showed in April and May in June. I will overcome the stagnation of batting through training.”
