Technical support issues
He is a player with good physique and flexibility, he did it without difficulty, but the burden of defense continued to the poor offense. Ko Seung-min, who hit .400 in the second half of last year, faced a slump of .224 this year. The sharp ball, which was competing for first and second place in speed, was also rarely noticeable.
With the appointment of the new coach Kim Tae-hyung, he is again training as a second baseman. He is the most difficult player for defensive coach Kim Min-ho.
It does not mean that next year's position is second base. He is currently training at second base for more diverse utilization, but depending on the performance of the spring camp, he may play in right field or first base.
Ko Seung-min, who met at Lotte's second division practice site in Sangdong, Gimhae on the 16th, said, "I tried to get rid of bad habits in hitting." In many cases, the bridge, which becomes the axis, collapsed during the hitting process. "He told me a lot to hit the ball right away when I saw it," he said.
"My habits were getting worse and worse. I think that's why my grades were not good this year."
He played as a second baseman in the Cheongbaek match the previous day, but it was not smooth, making one error. Is it due to the repeated shift in positions.
Ko Seung-min said, "I'm not good at it, so I go back and forth. I can't wait to get my place anywhere," he said. Coach Kim said, "Please grow into a batter who can play a clean-up rather than a Hotajun," saying, "I want to be a good player right now, not a few years later." He stressed that he wants to do as well as the team expects him to do next year. "All year without injury" is the goal of the new season.
