He’s really good.
Kiwoom Heroes outfielder Park Soo-jong has been showing off his tremendous firepower recently. He played a total of 18 games with a batting average of 0.483 (14 hits in 29 at-bats) and 3 RBIs.
Kiwoom coach Hong Won-ki praised, “At the end of the season, Park Soo-jong’s name continues to be mentioned. I am looking at the fact that he is performing well. He will gain a lot of confidence. It seems to be a great option in planning next year’s lineup.” .
Coach Hong said, “His legs are fast and his base running is good. His defense is also stable,” and “He shows a tenacious attitude that does not die easily at the plate. He continues to play well, so it will likely have a positive impact on his competition with other players.” “It will also be helpful,” he said with a smile.
It was close to obscurity until the end of September. After attending Chungam High School and Kyungsung University, he joined Kiwoom as a foster player last year. He never made it to the first team stage.
He got his chance this year. He was called up for the first time on July 11th. He stayed in the first team for 11 days. He was substituted twice in the game. He was a failure at bat.스포츠토토
After being expunged on July 22nd, he was called up again on the 1st of last month. He also appeared on the field briefly only as a substitute. On the 21st of last month, he succeeded in starting for the first time since his debut in NC Jeonseo. He went 3-for-4 and even had his first hit. He left a strong impression.
He has since been named in the starting lineup for every game. On the 22nd of last month, he went 2-for-4 with 1 RBI against Hanwha, scoring his first RBI. After resting with no hits in 5 at-bats in SSG Jeonseo on the 28th, he performed well on the 29th in KIA Jeonseo with 4 hits in 4 at-bats, including a triple, and 1 RBI. On the 1st, KT Jeonseo also added a triple and scored 2 hits and 1 RBI in 5 at-bats.
On the 2nd, against Doosan, he had 3 hits in 4 at-bats. He hit a left-field hit to Doosan starting pitcher Brandon Waddell in the third inning with two outs and one on base. Even in the 6th inning with one out and no runner on base, he attacked Brandon’s first pitch and produced a hit to right. In the 8th inning, with 2 outs and no runners on base, Seo hit the first pitch from reliever Park Jeong-soo and resulted in a hit to left-center. He hit balls all over the outfield. The team lost 2-7, but Park Soo-jong’s performance clearly shined.
In defense this season, he played 9 innings in right field, 4 innings in left field, and 3 innings in center field. He didn’t make a single mistake.
