I thought it would be a backup to the extent of a pinch hitter. However, as he consistently performed well in the Australian league, he has now emerged as a dark horse that can threaten the starting position.
Song Chan-eui, who is active as the number 4 hitter in Geelong Korea, is the main character.
Song Chan-eui, who graduated from Sunrin Internet High School in 2018 and wore an LG uniform with the 67th rank in the 2nd 7th round, is known as the nephew of former general manager Song Gu-hong, an LG franchise star.
He hit 6 home runs in an exhibition game last year and left a strong impression on the fans as the ‘home run king of the exhibition game’. And for the first time since his debut, he made the first team and played as a starter in the opening match. However, the demonstration game and the regular league were different. He fell into a slump, and ended up not doing well in the first team. He appeared in 33 games and had a batting average of .236 with 3 home runs and 10 RBIs, all records for his first year with the first team.
During the winter, he chose to go to Australia to gain more practical experience, and is growing rapidly in Geelong Korea. Song Chan-eui, who was selected as the best hitter for the first and second rounds in a row and showed good hitting, continues that feeling of hitting at the end of the season.
Song Chan-eui contributed to the team’s 9-5 victory by shooting two-run four in the home game against Oakland on the 14th. On this day, he hit 7 home runs. His batting average is a whopping 3.8 6 and he has 23 RBIs and 18 runs scored.
Now, Song Chan-eui seems to be able to create a competitive structure with the main players. Song Chan-eui has mainly played as first baseman and right fielder in Geelong Korea. He was also a second baseman in the early days, but he hasn’t played second base lately.
The LG outfield is saturated. With five players including Kim Hyeon-soo, Park Hae-min, Hong Chang-ki, Moon Seong-ju, and a new foreigner, Austin Dean, there seems to be no room for Song Chan-eui to squeeze in.
It seems that Lee Jae-won will be given a chance at first base. New head coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said he wanted to nurture Lee Jae-won, and initially planned to enlist in the military this year, but after consulting with the club, he decided to play for another year, so he has to give Lee Jae-won a chance first.
Although he doesn’t play in Geelong Korea often, he seems to be able to try second base. Veteran Seo Geon-chang is expected to play second base, but if Song Chan-eui delivers strong long hits as a right-handed hitter, he could compete.온라인바카라
Even if Song Chan-eui fails to win the starting lineup, he seems to be able to instill tension in the starting lineup just by being behind him. LG’s future is growing in Australia.
