“Did you guys make that many defensive mistakes?”
Coach Ryu Joong-il, who leads the Hangzhou Asian Games baseball team, personally stood on the ground and instructed the players during defensive training held at Gocheok Sky Dome. In particular, the positions that are subject to intensive close marking are shortstops. National team shortstops Park Seong-han (SSG) and Kim Joo-won (NC) stood right behind coach Ryu Joong-il and watched their every defensive move.먹튀검증
Manager Ryu Joong-il was the starting shortstop representing the Samsung Lions during his active career. He was fierce in defense and left no gaps. Of course, it is not common for the national team coach to directly coach the defense and stand on the ground and watch the entire defense time.
This shows his extraordinary affection for the national team’s shortstops and his desire to teach them at least one specialty in which he is most confident.
During the first training session after being called up to the national team, coach Ryu Joong-il asked infielders including Park Seong-han and Kim Joo-won about the number of defensive mistakes they made. Park Seong-han smiled shyly, saying, “The coach asked me about the number of mistakes I made, and coincidentally, the national team had the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th most mistakes in the league. Actually, I was embarrassed.”
As of the 26th, Kim Joo-won (28) ranked first in league errors, Bo-kyung Moon (20) ranked second, Seong-han Park (19), and Seong-han Park (19), and Si-hwan Noh and Jae-hyeon Lee (18) ranked fourth. Shortstop and third baseman are positions where a lot of errors are inevitable, but it is clear that the number of errors is high.
Park Seong-han expressed his gratitude, saying, “The director is a man with a great career. He thinks everything the director said is correct, and he is trying to learn as much as possible.”
In particular, shortstops are players who must hold the center of the defensive center line even on the main stage of the Asian Games. Coach Ryu’s hope is that, not only in the Asian Games, “I hope that through this tournament, I will grow further as a player representing our country in the future.”
