Hwang Seong-bin (25) is making the early season his stage.
The Lotte Giants won 6-5 in the 2023 Shinhan Bank Sol KBO League LG Twins game held at Lotte Sajik Stadium on the 11th.
At the end of the 3rd inning, 2nd out and 3rd base, Lotte outfielder Hwang Seong-bin entered the plate. Hwang Seong-bin made perfect contact and made a triple that landed on the right field line.
The triple hit itself also caused LG problems, but the later ones caused more problems for LG. Hwang Seong-bin, who boasts explosive power, is the best player in running base play. Because of this, LG second baseman Seo Geon-chang and catcher Park Dong-won made a mistake while trying to catch the ball quickly. Because of this, a reversal was made by scoring one RBI with a triple + error. After that, Lotte had ups and downs, but was able to win.
Hwang Seong-bin, 메이저놀이터an outfielder from Kyungnam University who was born in 1997, is a player who boasts explosive power as mentioned earlier. He is making a big success as his contact ability, which he had been complying with recently, has gotten better. As he is an outfielder who completed his military service, his future is very bright.
He inevitably took time to establish himself in the first team as he went through the process of being a college player and completing his military service. Lotte kept him strong even in the face of temptation, and now he is benefiting from it.
What is more positive about Hwang Seong-bin’s situation is that he is not only showing quick feet, but also excelling at batting. In terms of OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage), which can simultaneously check contact ability, forward thinking, and productivity, he is 4th after Yang Seok-hwan (1.169), Kang Min-ho (1.160), and Kang Baek-ho (1.089) with 1.089. Although he is in the early stages, you can see what kind of activity he is showing.
