Lee Byung-hun, who has been in the limelight as a promising catcher since his high school days, quickly solved his military problems, and also experienced his first-team stage debut last season.
He also continued to gain experience in the first team through exhibition games with the spring camp in Okinawa, Japan, and he continues to feel what he lacks.
He said, “Last summer, I felt like I was running out of energy. It seems that strong players have been good at baseball for a long time. He said that in the winter he prepared a lot. I worked hard on the weights, but the results came out not bad.”
Another is to establish your own strike zone. If I used to swing the bat recklessly, it’s not now. He sets up his own zone and is trying to hit only when the ball comes into that zone.
Lee Byung-hun said, “Last season when I was in the 2nd team, I thought a lot about what to do to reduce strikeouts. Even during a match, he tries to set up his own strike zone and go to the game,” he said. No matter where I play baseball, I hope it goes well as planned.”
He knows he’s not good enough now. That’s why he doesn’t get frustrated whether he’s in the 1st team like he is now or if he goes down to the 2nd team. I just want to do my best in the given circumstances. He also likes to enjoy the baseball he loves wherever he is.
“There is no specific goal,” he said. If you do your best in a given environment day by day, I think the results will naturally follow.” “It’s okay to be in the 1st group, and it’s okay to be in the 2nd group. I can play baseball anyway,” he smiled.
Finally, Lee Byung-hun said, “As a catcher, there are still many things to do. lacking compared to their predecessors. he must learn He helps a lot just by looking at him. It is right that he should prepare from underneath while watching the seniors who are good at it. I hope my skills improve even a little this season.”
