He bridged the gap between the home run king and a genius hitter. It would not be wrong to say that it is no longer LG’s treasure, but the treasure of Korean baseball.안전놀이터

The Korean baseball team, led by coach Ryu Joong-il, won a cold game in the 8th inning with a score of 10-0 against Hong Kong in the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games baseball group B group stage held at the first baseball stadium of Shaoxing Baseball-Softball Center in Shaoxing, Zhejiang, China on the 1st.

Korea’s starting lineup includes starting pitcher Won Tae-in, Kim Hye-seong (second baseman), Choi Ji-hoon (center fielder), Noh Si-hwan (third baseman), Kang Baek-ho (designated hitter), Moon Bo-kyung (first baseman), Yoon Dong-hee (right fielder), Park Seong-han (shortstop) – It was a batting lineup consisting of Kim Hyeong-jun (catcher) and Kim Seong-yoon (left fielder).

Moon Bo-kyung’s name stands out as he is included in the main batting lineup along with Noh Si-hwan, who is currently ranked first in home runs in the KBO league, and Kang Baek-ho, nicknamed the ‘genius hitter.’

Moon Bo-kyung is a player who plays as the starting third baseman for LG. Moon Bo-kyung, who completely established himself as LG’s starting third baseman last year with a batting average of .315, 9 home runs, 56 RBI, and 7 stolen bases in 126 games, appeared in 126 games this year as well and maintained his batting average. 304 with 10 home runs, 71 RBIs, and 9 stolen bases, he was proudly named to the national team for the Asian Games.

The national team’s coaching staff, including coach Ryu Joong-il, could not ignore Moon Bo-kyung, who boasts a hot hitting ability. He even declared early on that Moon Bo-kyung would be used as the central batting line-up. Coach Ryu Joong-il said at Gocheok Sky Dome, where the national team’s official training took place last month, that “the main batting lineup will be Noh Si-hwan, Kang Baek-ho, and Moon Bo-kyung.”

The national team played an evaluation match against Sangmu at Gocheok Dome last month. It was the national team’s only practice game. The national team won the game 2-0. The person who hit the winning shot was none other than Moon Bo-kyung.

It was his first time playing for the adult national team, but he couldn’t be seen looking nervous. Before leaving Hangzhou, Moon Bo-kyung said, “I am training as usual. I will do my best in the given situation,” and added, “I will always be confident and try not to be intimidated.”

Moon Bo-kyung’s hot hitting continues in Hangzhou. Bo-Kyung Moon hit the first, winning hit against Hong Kong and proved why he has no choice but to be included in the main batting lineup. Bottom of 1st inning, 2 outs, 1st and 2nd bases. Earlier, Kang Baek-ho struck out on a missed swing, leaving 2 outs, but Moon Bo-kyung paid no heed and hit a timely hit to the right. Second base runner Choi Ji-hoon scored, giving Korea the first point. It was a pleasant start. On this day, Moon Bo-kyung recorded 1 hit, 2 walks, 2 RBI, and 1 run in 2 at-bats.

Surprisingly, Moon Bo-kyung has no record of playing as a first baseman in the league this year. Of course, he often played as a first baseman in the past, but this year he only played as a third baseman in the league, and he was a player who was increasingly moving away from first base. The national team’s coaching staff came up with a clever plan: appointing Noh Si-hwan as a built-in third baseman while sending Moon Bo-kyung out as first baseman even though Kang Baek-ho could be used at first base. It was such a waste to let his bat rot on the bench. There was great concern in the national team that Lee Jeong-hoo was out of action due to an ankle injury, leaving a huge gap in the central batting lineup, but Moon Bo-kyung is emerging as a savior.
