Catcher Kang Hyeon-woo (22) is a promising player for KT Wiz. As if to prove this, he joined finishing training immediately after being discharged last year and turned the bat again, and is also included in this year’s spring camp in Tucson, Arizona, USA, and is challenging toward the first team stage.
KT’s catcher layer is not thick. Last season, Jang Seong-woo (33) and Kim Jun-tae (29) mostly wore catcher masks. Sang-in Moon (25) and Dae-hyeon Cho (24) played as catchers for only 20 innings, so Jang Seong-woo and Kim Jun-tae played an absolute role. Because there was no clear ‘third catcher’, Jang Seong-woo and Kim Jun-tae’s break time was forced to be short. Accordingly, the KT coaching staff is paying attention to Kang Hyeon-woo as the team’s third catcher. 카지노사이트
Kang Hyeon-woo, who wore a KT uniform with the 2nd pick in the 2nd round of the 2020 rookie draft, participated in 26 games in the 1st team as a rookie. It wasn’t a long time for him, but he showed some talent in his hitting, such as reporting a home run in his professional debut. He enlisted in the military earlier than his classmates in order to fulfill his military service duties as soon as possible and continue his career as an athlete. He served in the military as an ordinary soldier, not as a member of the Armed Forces Sports Unit (Sangmu). Fortunately, thanks to meeting bosses who love baseball, he was able to minimize gaps while training steadily.
Kang Hyeon-woo received favorable reviews from the coaching staff at the finish camp last fall. In his training, he showed his desperation for baseball, and received passing marks in both ball and defense. KT’s coaching staff plans to develop Kang Hyun-woo into a future master while making the most of it as the third catcher in the 2023 season.
There is a scene where he dreams of ‘I missed baseball’. Together with So Joon So, who is a motive of Shingo Yu, they work together for team victory by working together as a battery on the stage of the 1st team. In order to achieve this, it is necessary to make a clear snow stamp in this spring camp. I wonder if Kang Hyun-woo will be able to become the team’s third catcher after Jang Seong-woo and Kim Jun-tae.
