Along with Samsung’s 8 consecutive victories in demonstration games, the faces of Samsung franchise stars are also brightening. Ja-wook Koo could not hide his excitement, saying, “I think I will win today and tomorrow.”
The Samsung Lions won 2-1 in an exhibition game against the Doosan Bears in the 2023 KBO League held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 26th. As a result of the day, they ran on an 8-game winning streak and recorded 10 wins and 2 losses. Leading the trial race
Ja-wook Koo started as right fielder number 2 and contributed to the victory with 2 hits in 3 at-bats. From the first inning, with no runners, he got a hit to the left against Doosan ace Raul Alcantara, and after one shot in the third inning, he also met Alcantara and achieved multi-hits in two consecutive games with a heavy hit. Ja-wook Koo’s batting average in the demonstration game reached 407 li (11 hits in 27 at-bats).
After the game, Koo Ja-wook said, “It was fun because a lot of spectators came to see us. It was a bout where he felt something invisible,” he said. The head coach, head coach, and hitting coach tell me a lot about building confidence from practice. That’s why I came to the game more comfortably,” he said.
The team’s 8 consecutive victories in exhibition matches is also a great joy for Koo Ja-wook. The performance of the demonstration game is separate from the regular season, but there is nothing bad about winning. Koo Ja-wook said, “I used to think that the results of demonstration matches were not very important, but if I win, the mood and atmosphere all improve.” Even if you lose, you can think of winning again because you won a lot. It’s an exhibition match, but I hope to win a lot. Baseball is up to you to think about,” he explained. 메이저사이트
Ja-wook Koo, who signed a multi-year contract worth up to 12 billion won for 5 years ahead of the 2022 season, cited coach Jin-man Park’s ‘hell training’ as the secret to the current team and individual performance. He said, “The results were bad during the camp practice game, but I think the coach intended all of that. He believes in the manager and coaches and believes that he invested that time. It seems to fit well,” he said. If we trust each other and play like this, there will be good results.”
If so, can Samsung lay the groundwork for rebuilding the dynasty this year? Ja-wook Koo said, “The players have been training a lot, so they are swinging with confidence. So do young players. Rather than being stimulated by each other, I hope to create a synergistic effect and become a stronger team. As the depth gets thicker, I hope there will be more players who show that anyone can do it,” he dreamed of another leap forward for Samsung, a famous baseball player.
