“I work hard on analysis and read a lot of books”… ‘First selection of the season’ 24-year-old catcher prospect, national shortstop’s praise
“He is a player who works hard.”
The Samsung Lions, led by coach Park Jin-man, will face off against the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League Kiwoom Heroes at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 19th in the second game of the season.
Samsung is on a winning streak, winning 6-4 amid Baek Jung-hyeon’s perfect pitch the previous day. Through this victory, we will secure a winning series and challenge for 3 consecutive wins.안전놀이터
Samsung’s starting pitcher that day was Lee Jae-hee. A player who joined Samsung in the 2nd 1st round 3rd place in 2021. He has a record of five first-team appearances and an average ERA of 5.40 per loss.
Manager Park Jin-man, whom we met before the game, said, “Because he is a starting pitcher, he believes that he should throw 5 innings. He may feel some pressure, but it is important how he gets through the first 1-2 episodes.”
On this day, the catcher who matches with Lee Jae-hee is Lee Byung-hun. It is his first start of the season. It is Park Jin-man’s choice to relieve Lee Jae-hee’s burden because he has been working steadily in the Futures League.
Director Park Jin-man said, “I’ve been watching Lee Byung-hun since Futures. He is a player who prepares hard. He does a lot of analysis, and he’s probably the most well-read baseball player. He also has the fighting skills a catcher should have. He is the player who should lead the future of Samsung.”
On this day, Samsung played Ja-wook Koo (right fielder) – Ji-chan Kim (2nd baseman) – Jose Pirella (left fielder) – Won-seok Lee (designated hitter) – Jae-il Oh (1st baseman) – Jae-hyeon Lee (shortstop) – Seong-gyu Lee (center fielder) – Byung-hun Lee (catcher) – Ho-jae Kim ( 3rd baseman) in order.
