NC outfielder Cheon Jae-hwan (29) was the MVP of the Tucson spring camp. He made a big success with 8 hits in 19 at-bats, a batting average of 0.421, 1 home run, 4 RBIs and 3 runs in 6 practice games. Although the exhibition game is low with 2 hits in 15 at-bats and a batting average of 0.133 in 4 games, there is a good chance of forming an axis of outfield backup with Kim Seong-wook and Han Seok-hyun this season.
On the 6th, Cheon Jae-hwan said through the 메이저사이트 club, “Thank you (Park) Min-woo hyung for taking care of me a lot so that I could play baseball comfortably during the camp. I entered the entry for the opening game of the first team and will work hard with the goal of double-digit home runs and double-digit stolen bases this season with strengths in long hits.”
It is not difficult to see a culture where seniors and juniors help each other and share tips at camp. However, it is noteworthy that Cheon Jae-hwan was a training player in the past, was out of the season due to an unexpected injury, and is a player who rejoined after completing military service as a social worker.
Park Min-woo seems to have helped Cheon Jae-hwan in many ways in Tucson, sincerely wishing him well. For NC, which has a history of falling out over the past 1-2 years, players like Cheon Jae-hwan must become a key member to become stronger in the long run.
Park Min-woo finished the Tucson camp and at the arrivals hall at Incheon International Airport, “He is a player with pain. When Jaehwan joined the team, he came as an infielder. He trained together and that’s it. He had a lot of trials, but even though he showed a desperate look, it didn’t work out well. He trained hard last year, and I thought it would be nice if it went well.”
He also did night training together in Tucson. Park Min-woo said, “Since the dorm has a room attached to it, we asked to practice together. I am also grateful that Jaehwan was grateful. i’m more happy I hope to seize the opportunity well this year and go to many games.”
This kind of appearance of Park Min-woo is the great dignity of an FA conglomerate. 6th among all batters in the KBO League with over 3,000 at bats. In the 2022-2023 FA market, a 5+3 year 14 billion won large contract was signed. It quickly rose to 10th place in the total amount of FA contracts (FA conglomerates). It pushed Park Seok-min, a team senior with 13 billion won, to 11th place. Players who make a lot of money and do well in baseball have an obligation to help players who need to do well in baseball.
Park Min-woo said, “It was a camp I went to in three years. It was fun. What the team expects from me is accurate hitting and a high batting average. He hasn’t played well the past 2 years. He’s not just confident. He also needs to mature mentally. The most important thing for him is to play a lot without getting injured. Only then can he get good grades. In his heart, he has a desire to play in all the matches.”
Park Min-woo has been sluggish over the past two years as a member of the Corona 19 quarantine rules violation and drinking wave. He should be centered in the infield this year. The exhibition match went to 2 games. He is going 3-for-2 with 2 hits, 1 walk and 1 run.
