He swung the bat vigorously and the ball pierced the middle left. Usually, a hitter who hits a single hit checks the batted ball and then slowly runs to first base, but this player was different. He sprinted as if he was watching Yang Jun-hyeok in the past.
Coach Lee Seung-yeop, who was sitting in 먹튀검증the third base dugout, smiled brightly while talking with coach Koh Young-min. The player who made coach Lee Seung-yeop laugh was KT Wiz rookie Hyun-in Ryu (23).
Ryu Hyun-in has a relationship with director Lee Seung-yeop. Hyun-in Ryu was a player who played an active role as a disciple of coach Lee Seung-yeop in the JTBC baseball entertainment program ‘Strongest Baseball’ last year. Ryu Hyun-in, who graduated from Dankook University, was put on a KT uniform through the 2023 rookie draft. At the time, director Lee Seung-yeop, who heard the news of Ryu Hyun-in’s joining KT, smiled broadly, saying, “It seems like my son got a job.” Afterwards, manager Lee Seung-yeop took office as Doosan manager, and now we meet again as the opposing team.
In the match between Doosan Bears and KT Wiz in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at KT Wiz Park in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do on the 21st, Ryu Hyun-in wanted to show his improved appearance in front of his mentor. So he played the game with more focus than usual and made a left-handed hit from the first at-bat. He doesn’t even hit, but the way he sprinted to first base after hitting was impressive. Director Lee Seung-yeop, who was watching this closely, also kept an eye on Ryu Hyun-in with a meaningful expression.
Coach Lee Seung-yeop said before the game, “It is more important how to attack starting pitcher So-Jun Sohn, who was strong in Doosan last season, than Ryu Hyun-in,” and said that he would only think for the team without being bound by personal feelings, but Ryu Hyun-in’s performance on this day caught the eye. I had no choice but to catch it.
He recorded multiple hits in offense and showed quick judgment when the opposing pitcher pitched wildly, showing a base play that went one base further. He also dazzled second base defense. The missed ball was quickly moved forward and handled with a loose low, and in the crisis of a run, it was sprayed into the home without delay to catch the runner on third base.
Director Lee Seung-yeop spared no encouragement to Ryu Hyun-in, saying, “I’m watching you well. You’re doing well,” and the student showed improved baseball skills with the support of his mentor. Even though they were on the opposing team, coach Lee Seung-yeop’s expression was strange as he watched Ryu Hyeon-in, who was very active in karate and defense.
