Independent baseball team Yeoncheon Miracle produced its first professional player this year.
Yeoncheon Miracle said on the 22nd, “Catcher Bae Hyeon-ho signed a contract with the KIA Tigers as a training player and entered the KBO League.” Bae Hyun-ho played an active role as the team’s central hitter in the 2023 independent baseball team’s Gyeonggi-do league, recording a batting average of 0.306, two homers, and an OPS of 0.910.온라인바카라
Bae Hyeon-ho, who played an active part in Yeoncheon Miracle’s cleanup trio, graduated from Gyeongbuk High School as a right-handed catcher and joined Nexen Heroes in the 2nd, 4th round, 38th place in the 2018 KBO Rookie Draft. Recognized for his stable defense and batting ability, he was dispatched to Geelong Korea in 2019 and called up to the first team in 2022, receiving good reviews as a promising catcher, but suffered the pain of being released.
Bae Hyun-ho, who did not give up on baseball, prepared for his comeback by building his body again and joining Yeoncheon Miracle. After joining Yeoncheon Miracle, it was evaluated that his defense power, such as accurate throwing and blocking, was stable, and his ability to produce long hits was improved by increasing his power through weight training. He also showed dedication to his team, playing catcher as well as first base defense due to team circumstances.
Deok-Hyeon Kim, Mayor of Yeoncheon-gun, encouraged, “I sincerely congratulate Hyeon-Ho Bae on entering the professional league. I will watch and support him as he plays an active role in the professional world with the people of the county, so let’s meet on the stage of the first team in the KBO League.” I will show you a good image by going up to. I am grateful to Yeoncheon-gun for creating a field of opportunity.”
On the other hand, Yeoncheon Miracle is considered an exemplary case of win-win cooperation between local governments and independent baseball teams, such as winning the ‘2022 Independent Baseball Team Gyeonggi-do League’ and runner-up in the ‘2023 KBO Dream Cup Independent Baseball Tournament’ based on the full support of Yeoncheon-gun.
