If you get to know her, she is an icon of sacrifice and perseverance.

NC captain Son A-seop (35) has a bad start to the season. In 21 games until the 26th, 23 hits in 86 at-bats, a batting average of 0.267, 11 RBIs and 10 points. If you narrow the range to the last 10 games based on the previous game, the batting average is 0.282, which is not bad. However, his career batting average of 0.320 is far short of his reputation.

Even in the 2022 season, Son A-seop did not have a very satisfactory season with a batting average of 0.277, 4 homers, 48 ​​RBIs, 72 points, and an OPS of 0.714 in 138 games. It was a season in which the pace was not good at the beginning of the season, but it recovered belatedly, but concluded that it was sluggish on its own.

Son Ah-seop trained last winter at the baseball academy run by Kang Jung-ho in Los Angeles, USA. He pulled out the tracking data to figure out his problem, and concluded that the launch angle had to be raised. He’s not a home run hitter anyway, so he’s focused on getting his launch angle to 20 degrees to make a strong line drive hit. 메이저사이트

He seems to have not fully adapted to the changed swing trajectory. Coach Kang In-kwon said ahead of the KIA game in Gwangju on the 26th, “There is definitely a part where I tried to change the batting.” “It is always a slow starter. However, entering the batting order (4th hitter) that does not suit his body also has an effect. The right spot is in front, but there is obviously a part where it is not easy to find the batting pace as he is forced to go out as the 4th batter due to team circumstances.”

There is a side effect to the mechanical change, but there is no way that there is no mental burden while carrying the heavy duty 4th. However, as the team captain, Son A-seop silently conforms and accepts it. Director Kang is grateful for this part. He said, “You have to think of the team and sacrifice for the team.”

In fact, there were times when Son A-seop played a left fielder instead of a right fielder in his main position this season, and he also appeared as a designated hitter a lot. It may be difficult to raise his hitting feeling because he does not play defense at the same time. Director Kang said, “These parts are not easy to do unless you think of the team as a leader. It is the image of a leader who thinks of the team.”

Park Se-hyuk has returned to the NC lineup, but there is still a distance from the top. As Jason Martin and Park Seok-min are absent, Son A-seop is likely to be the center of the batting line for the time being. In the end, any batting order, any position, any role, if you are a 6.4 billion free agent hitter, you have to show and prove it. NC believes in the captain. On the 26th, Son A-seop showed the possibility of a reversal with 2 hits in 4 at-bats against the Gwangju KIA.
