“In the second half, (stealing) will also put out a stop sign.”
The LG Twins reorganize ‘running baseball’. In the second half, it is expected to show base play with a higher probability.
LG finished first in the league with a record of 49 wins, 30 losses, 2 draws and a win rate of 0.620 in the first half of the season. 1 in the first half for the first time in 26 years since 1997.
Manager Yeom Kyung-yeop gave credit, saying, “Our coaching staff and players did really well in the first half. They executed what they had prepared so far. Most of all, I think it’s great that the players know their baseball and do well in it.”
LG’s theme this season is ‘Dak Gong (shut up and attack)’. Offense, defense, base run all decided to be aggressive.
In attack, he does not hesitate to hit three balls. Director Yeom revealed the reason for hitting the three-ball, saying, “There is a high probability of a mistake in a three-ball.”
With these efforts added, LG ranks first with a team batting average of 0.285. In addition, team scoring (437 points) and team hits (791) are also running first.
On the other hand, aggressive things can also be toxic. Juru right away While LG ranks first in this category with 86 team steals, it has the most stolen bases. That’s 54 times. It is close to double compared to NC and Doosan (28), which are tied for second place.
Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop does not point out even if players steal bases.
However, in the second half, he promised to improve the accuracy of base play. Looking back at the moment when Shin Min-jae failed to steal a base against Hanwha on the 12th, Yeom said, “I will give a stop sign in the second half.”
At that time, Shin Min-jae took the lead in the bottom of the 6th inning when the team was trailing 0-2 and hit Moon Dong-ju. However, he tried to steal the first pitch in the next batter Hong Chang-gi’s at-bat and was tagged out at second base.토토사이트
Manager Yeom explained, “I played when I shouldn’t have run. But I don’t say anything because I failed to steal,” but “I told this story instead. ‘Run when the green light was given.’
“I was thinking of stealing. But after the 2nd strike, I thought about the timing of the curve. Moon Dong-ju has a good slide step. It forms in the 1 second and 20s. At the curve timing, Shin Min-jae can live enough. The hitter swings and interferes. It can be done, and it can interfere with throwing the ball. However, when Shin Min-jae stole the base, the 150 km fast ball came to a course that was easy for the catcher to catch,” he recalled.
We finished the first half in 1st place, but there are still shortcomings.
During the All-Star break, LG plans to train for a total of three days. Training will be conducted focusing on the strategic part.
