“Moon Bo-kyung will grow into a representative third baseman in Korea.”
Moon Bo-kyung, who was nominated by LG with the 25th overall in the 2nd 3rd round in 2019, is a right-handed left-handed infielder. Appearing in the first team in earnest from the 2021 season, he quickly established himself as LG’s main infielder. Until last year, he posted a batting average of 0.281 (192 hits in 684 at-bats), 17 home runs and 95 RBIs, an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.778 in 233 games with the first team until last year.
Moon Bo-kyung is wielding a strong hit this season as well. As of the 8th, he has played 94 games and has a batting average of 0.287 (98 hits in 342 at-bats), 5 home runs, 51 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.776, taking responsibility for one of the LG batting lines.
Moon Bo-kyung, in particular, is showing off her long hitting power in the second half. His slugging percentage was 0.381 in the first half, but he is recording his slugging percentage of 0.554 in the second half. On the 6th, against Samsung Lions in Daegu (7-4 LG won), in the top of the 2nd and 9th innings, a triple that flowed down the right field and a double that fell to the right of the right field exploded, and both hits were decorated with long hits.
There was a change in the hitting point for Moon Bo-kyung’s slugging power increase. LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop, whom I recently met, said, “(Moon) Bo-kyung is the best player on our team who hits the ball fast.” A home run is also related to batting speed or weight, but it is important how many points you can score forward.”
Of course, if you put the hitting point in front, your batting form can completely collapse if you miss the timing when dealing with a breaking ball. However, according to Director Yeom’s explanation, Moon Bo-gyeong creates a ‘right wall’ when hitting, and does not collapse easily.
“When the point comes forward (on the batting form), it can collapse again if the right wall is not made, but the right wall was well formed for Moon Bo-kyung. Thanks to that, the distance of the batting ball increased, and the number of home runs also increased.” Director Yeom said.꽁머니사이트
Moon Bo-kyung, who has been between first and third base since last year, is only active as a third baseman this year. With 15 errors, he ranks second in errors among all fielders in the league.
