If he does not get injured at the current pace, he will play in the most games since his debut as a pro. Hwang is determined to continue his good upward trend while his opponent’s checks are expected to be worse than in the first half.

Above all, when asked about his goals for the second half, he said, “It’s only autumn baseball,” stressing that he will help the team stand in a higher position.

Hwang Sung-bin said, “I really want to play fall baseball,” adding, “I am confident in short-term games. I will prepare better in the second half so that I can get on base as much as possible and go to that stage.”

It is interesting to see if Lotte, which shook off its slump at the beginning of the season, will continue its momentum in the second half with the performances of young batters such as Hwang Sung-bin, Yoon Dong-hee, Na Seung-yeop and Ko Seung-min.
