Doosan Bears’ key prospect Jae-seok Ahn started the 2023 demonstration game happily while confirming the results of spring camp training. His shortcomings were compensated and his confidence increased.

Ahn Jae-seok started as the 메이저사이트 second hitter and shortstop in the opening game against the Lotte Giants in the opening game of the 2023 KBO demonstration game held at Sajik Baseball Stadium in Busan on the 13th, and recorded 1 hit, 1 home run, 2 RBIs and 1 run in 4 at-bats. In the beginning of the 6th inning, when the team was trailing 2-3, he came out as the lead batter and hit a solo home run over the right fence against left-hander Kim Jin-wook, thrilling.

The shortstop defense was also stable. He showed the results of his defensive training, which he had sweated all winter, on the ground, handling his tricky batting balls with quick judgment and smooth movements.

After the game, Ahn Jae-seok said, “I feel good because the part I prepared hard for last year’s finish camp and this year’s spring camp was revealed well.” It seems that the batted ball came out,” he said. 

Ahn Jae-seok went through a terrible 2nd year jinx last year. With a batting average of 0.213, 3 home runs and 17 RBIs in 99 games, the sense of stability fell with 15 errors not only in hitting but also in defense.

Doosan initially singled out Ahn Jae-seok as the starting shortstop for the 2022 season and gave him many opportunities from the beginning, but Ahn Jae-seok fell into a slump, leaving regret. 

During the spring camp, Ahn Jae-seok, who was desperate, underwent intensive training under the guidance of defensive coach Cho Seong-hwan. Ahn Jae-seok also knew exactly what he was lacking in, so he enthusiastically received fungo and moved diligently.
