“It’s like a player who grew up in America since he was a kid.”
Yoon Dong-hee (20) is the biggest hit product released by the Lotte Giants this season. He played in 53 games (42 starts) and got close to 200 at bats (194 at bats), but he is maintaining a batting average of 30% or higher (0.313). In his first year of full-time, he was able to play a part in the batting line, and from last month he started to be in the center batting line.
In particular, his hitting technique is universally praised. On the 13th of last month, against the Hanwha Eagles in Sajik, Moon Dong-ju threw a fast ball at 149 km/h, which dug deep into his body, but he made a full swing and made a home run. It is not only possible to deal with the ball in the body. Most of the hot & cold zones divided into 9 sections are red. After seeing Yoon Dong-hee’s batting, Hanwha coach Choi Won-ho said, “The hitting skills of batters have improved a lot these days.” (Moon Dong-ju’s home run) was a good hit by Yun Dong-hee.”
Lotte coach Larry Sutton said, “I’m showing the trajectory of my swing as if I had grown up in America since I was a child.” Usually, he only tries to hit the center of the bat, so when he hits the ball to the inside, the ball bends outside the foul line, but Yun Dong-hee’s ball does not bend and stretches all the way to the end, resulting in a hit and a home run.”토토사이트 순위
Yoon Dong-hee is meeting Lotte’s high expectations. On the 21st of last month, before Suwon KT Wiz, he not only showed a sense of high hitting enough to have a streak of 14 consecutive games, but also showed his ability as a solver with his first ending hit in his life against the Doosan Bears in Ulsan on the 30th of last month. He said, “I always think that it would be nice if a chance came in front of me.”
Even though he is in his second year as a pro, Donghee Yoon is a candidate for Rookie of the Year this year. As he only had 13 at-bats last year, he meets the rookie of the year qualification rules (batter, within 5 years excluding the current year, within 60 at-bats). I wonder if Lotte, the oldest out of the 10 clubs that produced the Rookie of the Year Award, will be able to recreate its glory 31 years after pitcher Jong-Suk Yeom in 1992.
