One of the strengths of Kiwoom Heroes’ leading hitter Lee Jeong-hoo is his ‘strong mentality.’
The number of games per team during a Korean professional baseball season is 144. Games are played six days a week, excluding Mondays. Of course, there will be days when conditions are good and days when the game is not going well.
Jeonghoo Lee says that it is important to ‘reset’ in such cases.
He said, “Even if you don’t hit the 4th time, there’s still a 5th at-bat left. Sometimes there are situations where the game can be decided in that at-bat.”
Lee Jung-hoo, who entered the professional ranks as a first-round pick in the 2017 rookie draft, won the Rookie of the Year award that year. Since then, he has been drawing a growth curve every year. In particular, last year, he was recognized as the best hitter regardless of the club토토사이트, dominating all categories in batting average, hits, RBI, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage.
However, for Lee Jeong-hoo, his colorful past is also a ‘target for reset’. He says calmly, “Just because he did well last year doesn’t guarantee he will do well this year.” His will to not rest on his laurels but to push himself and go to a higher place is what made Lee Jeong-hoo what he is today.
