Samsung is threatening high-ranking teams with tremendous power by transfusing a lot of young blood this season. As of Tuesday, Samsung had 39 wins, one draw and 32 losses, ranking fourth by three games over the Kia Tigers (42 wins, one draw and 29 losses). Young Samsung players are Kim Young-woong and Lee Jae-hyun.

Kim Young-woong joined Samsung as the third choice in the second round of the KBO rookie draft in 2022 after graduating from Gongju Middle East Elementary School, Yaro Middle School and Mulgeum High School. In his third year as a professional player, he has hit 0.262 (69 hits in 263 times at bat) 15 homers and 40 RBIs in 71 games this year, with a 0.347 slugging percentage and 0.487. In the best 12 votes for the All-Star Game announced on the 17th, he surprised the team by ranking first in the fan vote (1,096,976 votes) in the third baseman category and joint second in the team vote (70 votes).

Lee Jae-hyun joined Samsung as the first designation for the KBO rookie draft in 2022 after graduating from Seoul Soocho-Seonlin Middle School and Seoul High School. This year, in his third year, he became the main shortstop with a batting average of 0.340 (53 hits in 156 times at bat), seven homers and 28 RBIs, and a slugging percentage of 0.545. He also proudly ranked first in the shortstop category in the best 12 votes in the All-Star Game, ranking first in the fan vote (1,178,109 votes) and second in the squad vote (71 votes), making his first appearance in the All-Star Game.

Another promising player who follows them made his debut at a match against the Daegu SSG on Wednesday. The main character is Lee Chang-yong (25), who joined Samsung in 2021 as the 73rd pick in the eighth round of the second round of the KBO Rookie Draft after graduating from Eulji Elementary School (Nowon Gurittle), Cheongryang Middle School, Shinheung High School, and Gangneung Yeongdong University. Lee finished his military service as an industrial technician in November last year and returned to Samsung this season.

No other hitter was as far away as Futures. He had a batting average of 0.318 (41 hits in 129 times at bat), 10 homers, 31 RBIs and 25 runs scored, and a slugging percentage of 0.362 with a on-base percentage of 0.643 in 41 games, and was called up in a surprise move on Wednesday.

When asked to introduce Lee Chang-yong to reporters, Samsung coach Park Jin-man replied, “You can tell what kind of player he is by looking at his records.” Park said, “Lee is the No. 1 player in home runs in the Futures League. I had a chance to call up before, but I couldn’t come up because I got hurt when I was about to come up. We are slowing down in batting pace, but I called up because I thought it would be nice if young players could come and perform vigorously at an important moment. He is a player with long hit power.”

The performance was as expected. At a match against SSG in Daegu on Tuesday, Lee started as eighth batter and first baseman, and recorded one hit and one strikeout from three times at bat. He gave up a come-from-behind run due to his catch error in the sixth inning, but impressed home fans with his confident swing at every batter’s box.

After the game, Lee Chang-yong said, “It was my first first professional league game since my debut, but I didn’t feel nervous or nervous, and I had a lot of fun. I’m so happy that I got a hit in my debut game and my team won. I’m a little sad that my first hit wasn’t a home run, but I’ll make sure I get over the fence as soon as possible.”

“I made an error in the first game. I know I lacked a lot in defense, and I felt once again that I needed to supplement a lot from now on,” he said. “It was the first time I played in front of fans of the Samsung Lions, and I felt why I had to play baseball. I want to show good performances to my fans.”
