Seongbin Hwang started as left fielder No. 1 in the game against Kiwoom Heroes in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 15th and performed well with 2 hits in 5 at-bats and 1 stolen base. Lotte won 5-4 after a fierce overtime struggle.
Seongbin Hwang, who has a batting average of .226 (31 hits in 137 at-bats), 6 RBIs, 16 runs, and 8 stolen bases in 58 games this season with an OPS of .554, has been recording hits in 3 consecutive games as he has been consistently receiving opportunities recently. Acting coach Lee Jong-woon, who appointed Hwang Seong-bin as the leadoff, said, “There are not many players we can use when we try to play a running game. “We hired Hwang Seong-bin because he can play a running game,” he said, explaining the reason for his hiring.
In the game on the 15th, Seongbin Hwang showed off his excellent base running ability by creating a bunt hit and stealing two bases, although he was unable to score.
Acting head coach Jong-woon Lee said in an interview on the 16th, “We are barely able to play a running game. Anyway, in order to play, you need to shake up your opponent with base-running play, not just hitting. “I think Hwang Seong-bin is the player our team needs right now because his batting pace is good and he could be a source of energy for the team as he hits hard,” he said.
Acting manager Lee Jong-woon said, “The only players who can play for our team right now are Ahn Kwon-soo and Hwang Seong-bin,” and added, “It is difficult for Ahn Kwon-soo to start as a starter due to the team’s situation. In this situation, since Hwang Seong-bin is now hitting and running, he seems to be raising the team mood. The play was good yesterday too. This is what we want. There is nothing you can do if you are out, but even if you die, you must boldly stimulate your opponent to shake him up and make unexpected plays. “I think our team needs something like that right now,” he said, looking forward to Hwang Seong-bin’s performance.
Seongbin Hwang was also named in the starting lineup as leadoff in the game on the 16th. Although the game was canceled due to rain, it is a glimpse of acting coach Lee Jong-woon’s faith in Hwang Seong-bin. Attention is being paid to what Hwang Seong-bin, who is energizing the team with his fierce base-running play, will show in the future.
