“My dream is to hit 40 home runs beyond 20 and 30 and win the home run title at LG.”
Rookie catcher Kim Beom-seok (19), who was nominated 7th in the first round by the LG Twins after graduating from Gyeongnam High School, is one of the big prospects that LG and the Korean baseball world are paying attention to. Cha Myung-seok, general manager of LG, showed expectations after designating Kim Beom-seok in the rookie draft in September of last year, saying, “I chose and selected the old name Kim Beom-seok because it could change into a byword in Korean baseball in the future.”
Currently, Kim Beom-seok is sweating heavily while participating in Futures team training at Icheon LG Champions Park instead of joining the first team spring camp due to a right shoulder injury. 메이저놀이터
Hwang Byeong-il, director of LG Futures, said, “Kim Bum-seok is a rookie, but he is a promising player. Also, developing players is what the Futures team has to do. I had a meeting with coach Jo In-seong and asked for a favor. I came to the conclusion to go with one-on-one spelling. Even if you can’t hit at bat right now, you’re going to do adaptation training using a fast ball that you can practice visually as a machine, tea batting with a light bat with one left hand, or lower body training. He said that a customized program only for Kim Bum-seok would be conducted.
Kim Bum-seok, who talked on the 3rd, said, “The Icheon training schedule is systematic, and there is synergy thanks to the environment. He also tries to learn a lot from his seniors with a good heart when training.” In a systematic training schedule, Kim Beom-seok lost 10 kg, and said that he plans to lose more weight later.
