“Before I came to Korea, I watched a lot of KBO league videos.
Adapted quickly. As much as you adapt, grades naturally follow. LG foreign hitter Austin Dean (30) is starting to melt into the KBO League.
On the 19th메이저사이트,, Austin started as a 4th hitter and 1st baseman against Jamsil NC and played an active role with 3 hits, 1 RBI and 1 walk in 3 at-bats.
He reported his first home run of the regular season with a tie in the bottom of the 8th inning of the game the previous day, but lost his light due to the team defeat. However, on this day, he showed his true value with 100% on base.
In the bottom of the 7th inning, the spotlight went to Moon Bo-gyeong, who recorded a come-from-behind 3 RBIs and 3 bases, but Austin, who played an active role with 3 hits and 4 bases, could not be left out. Moon Bo-kyung’s sweeping triple also started when Austin calmly picked out a walk.
Until this day, Austin has a batting average of 0.375, 1 home run, 10 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.931. It is a different level of performance from the three mercenaries wearing LG uniforms after Roberto Ramos in 2020.
More than anyone else, we know about the brutality of foreigners in LG. Maybe that’s why, at the beginning of the season, my grades didn’t come out due to stress. However, he quickly adapted to the league and is now showing his true value.
The lack of a home run caused concern, but in the game on the 18th, the beast girl finally hit a home run and washed this away. Austin hit a two-run home run to tie the score in the bottom of the eighth inning, when the score was trailing 2-4 at the time, and took the game into overtime. Although the team lost, it was a meaningful ‘one shot’ for Austin.
Austin laughed, saying, “I hit a home run yesterday and the team lost, but I was relieved that the home run came out.”
Austin also showed off the ‘bat flip’ ceremony by throwing the bat after hitting a home run. It is the influence of watching countless KBO league videos before coming to Korea.
He said, “I’ve never done a bat flip in the US, but I seem to have unconsciously followed it while watching a lot of KBO league videos.” I have no choice but to go in. It’s nice that Korea doesn’t have that burden. There are still many games left, I don’t know how many home runs I’ll hit, but I want to show off my bat flips consistently. If I give a score, it’s an A for sure.”[LG Austin is hitting a timely tie at the end of the 1st inning against NC in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the afternoon of the 19th.
