Is Jamsil my destiny? The free agent catcher who hit better in Jamsil. “If the baseball field is big, you can hit more doubles”
One of the strengths of Park Dong-won, who has become the new main catcher of the LG Twins, is his long hitting power.
He has hit 114 career home runs while hitting double-digit home runs in four consecutive seasons.
Was it fate to come to LG? Last year, he showed a particularly good performance in Jamsil. While playing for the Kiwoom Heroes-KIA Tigers, he played 15 games with 안전놀이터 LG and Doosan Bears in Jamsil, posting a batting average of 3.33 (15 hits in 45 at-bats) with 3 homers and 13 RBIs. He also hit five doubles.
His performance in 40 games he played in Jamsil over the past three years was a batting average of 2.6% (30 hits in 112 at-bats), 8 homers and 25 RBIs. His performance in Jamsil is better than his 3-year career batting average of 2.4 pun 9 ri (277 hits in 1122 at-bats). Compared to Yoo Kang-nam’s three-year record (batting average of 0.256, 35 home runs, 181 RBIs), who played as LG’s main catcher, Park Dong-won leads in home runs.
Coming from Jamsil, Zalchi raises expectations for Park Dong-won.
Regarding the reason for better performance in Jamsil, Park Dong-won said, “It doesn’t matter how big or small the baseball field is. It’s important to be able to show my performance.” He continued, “If you hit it in Jamsil and get caught in front of the fence, it would have been a home run in other ballparks, but you may not be able to hit such a ball in other ballparks.” It means that whether you can swing properly and hit well is more important than the size of the baseball field.
Park Dong-won said that Jamsil Stadium could be better. Park Dong-won laughed, saying, “If the baseball field is big, I can hit more doubles. I have a desire to hit doubles rather than singles.”
LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop plans to place Park Dong-won in the lower lineup along with Lee Jae-won. It is a measure to ease his burden and make his swing more comfortable. If Lee Jae-won and Park Dong-won exceed 20 home runs, a scary bottom line can be created.안전놀이터
