If I were to pick the greatest virtue of rookies, I would say ‘Pae-gi’. There are a lot of rookies who are attracting attention. Much attention is paid to redemption. Some players reject it. It’s called “If you do well, stop”. Samsung Lee Ho-seong (19). The first-team roster was also virtually reserved.
Lee Ho-seong is a first-round pick in the 2023 rookie draft. The first player selected by Samsung. If he was the old system, he would be the primary nomination. Appropriate appearance emerges. He started spring training with the Futures, but moved up to first-team camp. All training followed. “There is no problem with difficult things,” he said.
He is also fighting hard in the demonstration game. In the match against SSG on the 14th, he made a perfect strikeout with 2 strikeouts in 1 inning. In the game against KT on the 18th, he made 2 innings, 1 hit (1 home run), 4 strikeouts and 1 run. He really showed off his power.
He took the mound in the top of the 6th inning and was hit by a solo shot by Hwang Jae-gyun. A high level of error became poison. he could shake However, Lee Ho-seong was firm. He struck out four through the seventh inning. He struck out pro seniors one after another. The four-seam with a maximum speed of 148 km was heavy, and the changeup was also powerful. Same goes for curves.
Even director Park Jin-man heard it ‘suck’. 스포츠토토 “I could have been shaken after hitting a home run. Rookies can be psychologically intimidated. There was nothing like that. threw the ball have a good mindset He calmly threw and got through it.”
“During the camp, rookies managed not to overdo it. Calmly prepared well. The Futures received good reviews, and he was called up to the first team. Seeing it in person was fine. I might be greedy, but I keep checking. He is calm for his age. When you are bold, go boldly again. There is nothing timid,” he emphasized.
The use of the first group was also suggested. “Aren’t good players supposed to be written? If you are in the current condition, you are competitive enough. I was looking at it for a long time, but if you do this, you can get enough for the opening entry. I have a strong heart. go with confidence A player like this energizes the team.”
He can be said to be a player with fundamental restraint. During spring camp, I just watched the practice game. “I want to stand on the mound. But when he’s ready he has to go up. Both my mind and body, I want to go up in perfect condition.”
He said he would win the competition with other motives. “I came to the pros and received systematic training. It doesn’t matter how hard your body is. I think I have game management skills and control is good. Whether it’s a fastball or a breaking ball, I can throw it wherever I want.”
He continued, “It is not all that the redemption is fast. I am confident that I will do better. Just because he has a fast speed doesn’t mean he’s better than me. I don’t think you are ahead of me. Baseball always requires good results. I just need to do better in terms of records and results. I have myself,” he stressed.
He is quiet and expresses his thoughts calmly, but his confidence is overflowing. He wasn’t talking empty words. Right now, we are fighting hard in the demonstration game. Pro is where good players go. Age is irrelevant.
Rookies who throw fastballs exceeding 150km per hour are attracting attention. Hanwha Kim Seo-hyun is like that, and NC Shin Young-woo is like that. Speed is always a subject of interest. However, Lee Ho-seong is not that slow. Above all, as he said, ‘get good results’.
