Kim Seong-wook (30, NC Dinos), who returned from military service and injury, is steadily preparing for the season at this spring camp.
Kim Seong-wook participated in overseas training (Tucson, Arizona, USA) for the first time in three years since 2020. This is because he briefly left the team while enlisting in the Sangmu baseball team in 2021.
Kim Seong-wook, who was discharged last September, has to prepare everything anew for this camp. It was because he had a hiatus due to his injury. After undergoing surgery to remove bone fragments in his right elbow in June of last year, he was scheduled to build his body at a finish camp after being discharged from the military. However온라인카지노, feeling his shoulder pain stopped him from exercising.
Because of this, Kim Seong-wook blamed himself for not being able to finish the (finish) camp with 100%. Fortunately, his physical condition has since returned to normal, and he is spending the Arizona camp without any problems. He expressed his confidence through the club, saying, “I have prepared better than ever for my body.”
The focus of the camp was batting. In the meantime, Kim Seong-wook has been evaluated as a player with strength in defense rather than batting. He once had 15 home runs (2016 season), but his contact ability did not support it. In particular, in the last two seasons before his enlistment, all batting averages were below 0.230.
From the managing director, Kim Seong-wook put all his energy into strengthening his batting. He expressed regret, saying, “I experimented by changing the timing of hitting, such as hitting from the front or from behind,” and “I tried to do what I tried in the first year last year, but my elbow hurt.”
What Sungwook Kim got from the army was the idea of ’form’. He said, “I had a lot of worries about the batting form in the past,” he said. “I don’t think much about form right now,” he said.
Instead, Kim Seong-wook, who mentioned ‘timing’, said, “I am focusing on responding to the ball.” He said, “Since there is a gap in practice, he does not know how the pitchers’ balls will feel when he enters the plate, but he will quickly find a sense and show a good figure.”
Hitting coach Song Ji-man (50), who is instructing Kim Seong-wook, commented favorably, saying, “I seem to have been building my body well throughout the winter in order to relieve my anxiety about the sense of the game and the experience of previous failures.”
“Rather than a lot of feedback, we are giving enough time to find a technical feel and relieve the anxiety factor when entering the game,” said Coach Song. do,” he said.
Kim Seong-wook, who inherited uniform number 25 from Eui-ji Yang (36, Doosan) after being discharged from the military, said, “I want to play full-time for one season in the first team, and I want to become an icon of victory.” He also expressed his wish, “The team hasn’t been able to play fall baseball for the past two years. I hope it goes to the postseason again when I come back.”
In NC, two national team outfielders, Park Kun-woo (33) and Son Ah-seop (35), are in good health, and foreign hitter Jason Martin (28) is also expected to occupy a spot in the outfield. If Kim Seong-wook, who will start the season as a ‘super backup’, rises to the hit, NC’s depth is expected to deepen.
