The Pittsburgh local media Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported on the 14th (local time), “Bae Ji-hwan is incredibly fast. The Pittsburgh club will be thrilled with his talent.”
Bae Ji-hwan, who entered the opening entry for the first time this season after joining Pittsburgh in 2018, is attracting attention for his quick feet.
At the beginning of the season, Bae Ji-hwan succeeded in stealing 11 out of 12 attempted base steals, immediately emerging as a candidate for the National League (NL) stealer king.
There were also trials. He had failed four of six attempts to steal a base in May. He received a bitter voice from the local media because he was injured during the game.
However, the ordeal made Bae Ji-hwan stronger. After mid-May, he added another steal and has 19 stolen bases to date.
If you add just one more stolen base, you can write a Korean major league record of 20 stolen bases in one season for the first time in 10 years since Choo Shin-soo in 2013.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette noted, “Bae Ji-hwan played the game more cautiously after mid-May. He quickly adapted to the game,” and noted that “Bae Ji-hwan’s average time to first base was 4.05 seconds, leading the league.”
In addition, he praised the defense, saying, “Although he sometimes makes judgments that bypass the ball, Bae Ji-hwan is great in center field. He could be the best center field option in Pittsburgh.”
Meanwhile, Bae Ji-hwan said in an interview with the media, “My goal is to hit the ball in play and go out to the base to score.” there is,” he said.
