There is a special batting training session in the LG Twins’ US spring camp. There is an ‘Imo Lesson’ where two batting coaches, Lee Ho-jun and Mo Chang-min, take one hitter every day and give them intensive guidance.
It is time for each hitter to establish their own swing. It is time to familiarize yourself with the way to swing with a wide hitting surface, which coach Yeom Kyung-yeop emphasizes, and to firmly establish a hitting routine. Mainly young promising hitters are the students of ‘Emo Lesson’.
I set aside about 40 minutes, and hit about 25. With each swing, he slowly creates a routine, and in addition to talking about batting, he exchanges jokes like this and that, and it takes place in a comfortable atmosphere.
On the 6th (Korean time), the LG Camp is being held at the San Francisco Giants Baseball Complex in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA. Moon Seong-joo has been called as a student of ‘Aunt Lesson’.
Under the guidance of Coach Lee and Coach Mo, Seong-Joo Moon practiced his signature fast and sharp swing. Coach Lee said, “I don’t let my elbows fall, and my body doesn’t shake in place compared to last year.”
As training progressed, coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop approached after a while and watched closely. Director Yeom, who was watching Moon Seong-joo’s swing, said, “It looks like Yelich. he has a nice form It’s good,” he praised. He was referring to major leaguer Christian Yelich (Milwaukee). 스포츠토토
Moon Seong-joo, who was trying to swing with one, two, and three timings in preparation for hitting, suddenly burst into laughter and couldn’t swing. (Moon Seong-joo later said in an interview with reporters, “The manager suddenly said this and I laughed out of embarrassment. He’s my favorite player.”) Coach Lee and another coach both laughed, and Coach Lee said, “Our Seong-joo’s smile is so cute.”
Afterwards, coach Yeom watched Moon Seong-joo’s swing and said, “The position of the head is also good,” and said, “Think of it as hitting with the runner on third base. At that time, if you press his left shoulder, the fly will float high. If you drop his shoulders about 15 degrees, the ball will float unconditionally,” he explained.
However, Moon Seong-ju was slightly scolded by coach Yeom and coach Lee. Moon Seong-ju came to the camp and tried to change his batting form to an upper swing in order to increase long hits such as home runs. Moon Seong-joo, who played the first full-time season last year, competed for the ‘out-of-the-counter batting king’ with a high batting average of 3.5 pennies until August.
