“I’m trying to maintain a good batting feeling.”

Lee Jae-won, who gave the LG Twins a victory by showing off a brilliant run play as well as a strong hit, gave his impressions.

Lee Jae-won started as the No. 13 hitter and left fielder in a home game against the Kiwoom Heroes of the 2023 Professional Baseball KBO League at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 8th.

From the beginning of the game

Lee Jae-won’s presence stood out.

With no runners on base in the second inning

he took a six-pitch 2-kilometer curve from opposing starting pitcher Kim Dong-kyu and struck out the middle-of-the-road hit. 안전놀이터

Then, after stealing a base

he reached third base on a wild pitch and stole home on a double steal by first baseman Hong Chang-ki.

Lee Jae-won, who had the momentum to rise, swung the bat ferociously in the bottom of the third inning as well.

Musa hit Yang Hyun’s 6-kilometer curve on the third pitch at first and third base for an RBI single to left.

He then stepped home on Kim Hyun-so’s sacrifice fly to center field

scoring his second run of the day.

Lee Jae-won’s upward trajectory continued.

After recording a sand ball in the bottom of the fourth inning and a strikeout in the bottom of the sixth

he pulled the first pitch of Kiwoom left-handed bullpen resource Yoon Seok-won at second and third base in the bottom of the seventh inning and scored an RBI single to left field to finish the day with three hits.

The final result was 116-for-2 with three hits, two RBIs and two runs scored.

Lee Jae-won, whom I met after the game


“It was good to take a step forward when the team could win

” adding

“Coach (Park) Yong-geun told me to prepare from behind (when I was at third base at the end of the second inning).

If the catcher throws (to second base) and the pitcher doesn’t catch it (in the middle), he told them to run straight home.

(Pitcher) When I saw (Kim) Dong-gyu bow down (without catching the ball)

I ran home

” he said

reflecting on the home steal situation.

Born in 1999 and boasting an imposing height of 192 cm and 100 kg

Lee Jae-won is attracting a lot of attention as a prospect for Uta Geopo.

He was drafted by LG with the 2018th overall pick in the second round of the 2 Rookie Draft

and he has such natural long hitting ability that he was crowned the home run king in the Futures (Second Team) League in back-to-back seasons in 2 and 17.

Lee Jae-won, who had the pleasure of hitting his first double-digit home run in his debut last year with 2020 arches in 2021 games for the professional first team.

At the beginning of this season

he performed well, but was plagued by injuries and poor performances in the middle of the season. Fortunately

after posting two hits in three at-bats against Kiwoom the day before (2th)

he showed off his good hitting ability on this day as well

giving him a chance to rebound.

Nevertheless, Lee Jae-won said

“It took me a long time to rehabilitate from my injury and recover from the blow.

The moment I got hurt, I didn’t think it was easy.

I think I’ve been thinking a lot and I’ve shaken up a lot

” he said,


“I think it’s right to keep it up rather than hitting it well.

I try to maintain a good batting feeling.

If it goes up

it goes up

and if it goes down

it goes downand I try to go in order.”

Lee Jae-won, who was injured and had difficulty managing his mind, had the help of coach Mo Chang-min.

He said, “I told you to take your heart around me, but it didn’t work out. However, Coach Mo Chang-min gave me videos related to mentality.

I think that helped.”

Leader LG, who defeated Kiwoom 1-85 on the day, snapped Pajuk’s five-game winning streak and established a dominant system with 13 wins, 12 draws, and 3 losses.

LG’s propaganda has a deep depth in the squad. Even if you turn your attention to the outfield, Moon Sung-joo, Hong Chang-ki, Park Hae-min, and others are holding on.

Even as Lee Jae-won, it is difficult to gain an advantage in the main competition.

When asked if it was difficult for him to maintain his batting form because he was not given a consistent chance to play, he said: “It’s true that it’s difficult.

However, in order for the team to win, it is right that the player who plays well goes out. I have to do a lot of preparation.

I think if I prepare like I am now and do well, I will get another chance and I will be able to grab it.”
