“Before I came to Korea, I watched a lot of KBO League videos. I’ve never really done it first, but it came out without me knowing.”
Adapted quickly. As much as you adapt, grades naturally follow. LG is smiling at foreign batters after a long time. Foreign hitter Austin Dean (30) also stressed that he is satisfied with his KBO league life. On the first day of the three-game series during the week, Austin made a big success with his first home run of the season and three hits on the second day.바카라사이트
On the 19th, Austin started as a 4th hitter and 1st baseman against Jamsil NC and played an active role with 3 hits, 1 RBI and 1 walk in 3 at-bats. He reported his first home run of the regular season with a tie in the bottom of the 8th inning of the game the previous day, but lost his light due to the team defeat. However, on this day, he showed his true worth by going on base 100%. Until this day, Austin is recording a batting average of 0.375 OPS and 0.931. It is a different level of performance from the three foreign hitters wearing LG uniforms since Roberto Ramos in 2020.
The following is Q&A with Austin after the game on the 19th.
-You hit your first home run yesterday. How is the feeling of hitting yesterday?
I hit a home run yesterday, but the overall result was not good. Still, he hit one home run and was very relieved. Because until then, Kim Hyun-soo used to tease that he was a weakling because he did not have a home run. He hit a home run and is no longer a weakling. Of course, Hyunsoo Kim did it as a joke. All the players are really good to me. He is playing around and getting along well, and he is very satisfied with his life at LG so far. He has had good times and bad times after hitting a home run. I think I felt good because I did well today.
-Yesterday’s bat flip was also impressive.
In fact, I had never done a bat flip before. I tried it for the first time yesterday. Before coming to Korea, I watched a lot of KBO League videos, and the bat flip was impressive. Still, I’ve never really done it first, but it came out without me knowing.
-If you were to give yourself a bat flip score, what would you give it?
It is A. From what I can see, it looks good. As you know, in the US, when you flip a bat, you get retaliation. I have no choice but to go into the next at-bat in a nervous state. It’s good that Korea doesn’t have that burden. I have a lot of games left, but I don’t know how many home runs I’ll hit, but I want to show off my bat flip consistently.
-Today, when I picked a walk in the bottom of the 7th inning, I threw the bat hard. Did you think there was a reversal flow?
I believed that Moon Bo-kyung behind me would do something for me. So far, there have been many times when Moon Bo-kyung has been in scoring position. He believed he would do it this time too. Because he had such faith, he seemed likely to turn around after a walk.
