“The swing rate was high for the left pitcher’s slider. Your swing doesn’t fit the slider.”
The total batting average of Kim Hyun-soo (LG), the second-place FA conglomerate (FA contract total of 23 billion won), is 0.316. However, in the 2021-2022 season, he stayed at 0.285 and 0.286. He was not like a hitting machine who hit 30% in 10 seasons or 10 times in his career, starting in 2008 when he was in Doosan. Even following the sluggishness of the WBC, the demonstration game was hitless in the number of bats until the match against Gocheok Kiwoom on the 26th. 온라인바카라
Director Yeom Kyung-yeop also knew why Kim Hyun-soo’s average had plummeted over the past two years. Ahead of the game on the 26th, “There is no strength on the outside. The swing rate was high on the left pitcher’s slider. His own swing and slider just didn’t fit. He said, “It is important how well it fits along the line of the slider.”
According to the baseball statistics site Statties, in the 2020 season when Kim Hyun-soo hit a batting average of 0.331, the slider batting average was a whopping 0.328. However, in 2021 and 2022, the slider batting average plummeted to 0.247 and 0.241. In particular, the left-handed pitcher’s slider escapes outside the standard for left-handed batters. It is the most difficult trajectory for a left-handed hitter to hit properly.
The problem is that Kim Hyun-soo hit the left-handed slider well in the past, but it hasn’t worked for the past two years. Director Yeom Kyung-yeop was optimistic. “You just need to fill in a few things. I’m trying to fill it up, and it will get better as I go. The direction you want to go is not bad. Instead of changing, you should focus on keeping. There is something I think is important. I am aware of the problem.”
