Then it becomes a ground ball on first base and a ground ball on second base. (Kim Min-seok) makes an angle and pushes. It’s an in-and-out swing. It worked a little , the torso rotates and comes in pairs without being fouled.”
After the game, Kim Min-seok said, “In the first at-bat, the timing for lifting my legs kept getting wrong, so I took an approach to cut it short. So I was able to cope with the breaking ball. I think luck helped me in the second.”
He continued, “Because the team keeps winning, even if I can’t hit, I can get into the at bat without any burden because my older brothers and seniors hit me. It’s thanks to them that they made me feel comfortable.”
