Not in LG, 4 in Doosan… “FA Amazing” Captain “I really want to do it in 4 years.”

Yang Seok-hwan (33, Doosan Bears) will face the season with strong motivation this season.

Having qualified as an FA last season, he signed a large contract with Doosan for a total of 7.8 billion won for 4+2 years.헤라카지노주소

Doosan became a “turning point” for Yang. Joining the LG Twins in 2014, he has drawn attention as a big shot first baseman. After hitting 22 home runs in 2018, he moved to Doosan with Ham Deok-ju’s Chae Ji-sun trade card in 2021.

After Oh Jae-il (Samsung) moved to the FA, Doosan had been agonizing over hitting first base but gave Yang an active chance. Yang also responded perfectly. With 28 home runs in his first year of transfer, he ranked No. 1 in his team’s home run. For the next two years, he hit more than 20 home runs, maintaining his core lineup.

In his first year after signing a large-scale FA contract, Doosan gave Yang Seok-hwan the heavy responsibility as captain. “After watching him for three years, I thought he would sufficiently take the center stage of the team.”

Yang Seok-hwan said, “Most of the captains are franchise players, but I thought it would be hard to say that it’s my fourth year now, but they trusted me and left it to me.” Doosan manager Lee Seung-yeop expected, “I can say what I have to say and I am a model for my juniors in discipline and behavior as a professional player.”

“Skills” are a must for the team to have a high voice. Yang is also well aware of this. After spending at least four years with Doosan, Yang set a goal of 30 home runs and 100 RBIs.

Thirty home runs and 100 RBIs are the same as a big shot. He is also a record that represents every team. Lee Seung-yeop, Lee Dae-ho, Park Byung-ho, and Choi Jung also achieved 30 home runs and 100 RBIs. Last year, Roh Si-hwan (31 home runs and 101 RBIs) of the Hanwha Eagles was the only one who achieved the feat.

It is a record achieved by quite a few players, but it has become a record rarely seen in Jamsil Stadium, the widest in the league. Basically, it is not easy for a big gun that exceeds 30 home runs to appear. Here, the record of 100 RBIs should be helped by a teammate’s on-base.

Doosan had a total of four players. Kim Jae-hwan (2016, 2017 2018 and 2000) had the largest number of players, followed by Woods (2000), Shim Jeong-soo (1999), and Kim Dong-ju (2000).

On the other hand, the record has yet to be released by LG. Lee Byung-kyu also hit 30 home runs in 1999, but his 99-run drive failed to score 100 RBIs. Roberto Ramos hit 38 home runs in 2020, but only had 86 RBIs.

“I always have a dream of 30 home runs and 100 RBIs. I think it’s a good thing to be able to challenge myself for four years. I want to do it within four years,” Yang said.

He has also started physical training early on. “I took a break for about three weeks, started basic training schedule, and started technical training in early December. I plan to enter Australia 10 days earlier. I’m going to start physical training in warm places,” Yang said, vowing to play well this season.
