The 2023 season will likely be remembered as a special year for infielder Noh Si-hwan (Hanwha). Finally the flower bloomed.
In the fifth year of his debut, he won the title of home run king. He drew 31 arches.
Born on December 3, 2000, he is also the third youngest home run king in KBO League history. 카지노사이트
He is followed by Doosan coach Seung-yeop Lee (1997, 21 years old, the youngest ever home run king) and KBO talent donation committee member Jang Jong-hoon (1990, 22 years old).
He also won two batting crowns with 101 RBIs.
Noh Si-hwan said, “I prepared from spring camp with an emphasis on long shots.
He never expected to become the home run king. “It was a big challenge
but I’m glad it led to good results,” he said with a smile.
He did it, home run king Noh Si-hwan wore a Hanwha uniform in the second first round of the 2019 rookie draft (3rd overall pick).
He early received great attention as ‘Kim Tae-gyun’s successor’.
He showed off his skills by hitting double-digit home runs (12-18) in 2020-2021. I
didn’t just walk on the flower path. Last year, I faced an ordeal.
The number of home runs dropped to 6. It was a difficult number to accept. I boldly attempted change. The hitting point was pulled forward.
It wasn’t easy for him to make it completely his own. He went silent in the middle of the season, going 0-hit in 43 at-bats.
He didn’t waver. He stuck to the direction he had planned.
He took one step at a time and eventually came into full bloom. His stage also expanded.
He was selected for the adult national team for the first time in his life.
The start is the Hangzhou Asian Games (AG). He was given the task of batting number four.
As it was ‘Beijing Kids’, it must have felt different. His burden was also great.
Noh Si-hwan said, “It finally dawned on me that he was playing his first game and that he had become a national representative.
Playing baseball with the Taegeukgi on his chest is something that requires great responsibility. He didn’t know much about cheering.
I felt like my seniors were even more amazing,” he said, nodding his head.
Contrary to his words, he showed off a heavy presence.
He played the role of a problem solver, hitting a batting average of 0.438 (7 hits in 16 at-bats). His OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) reached a whopping 1.140.
I found it, this is not the end for the national team’s number 4 hitter .
We are at the center of generational change. There is a high possibility that he will become a regular customer of the national team in the future.
Noh Si-hwan said, “I was proud of ourselves wearing the national team uniform.
I felt proud. I thought a lot about how I should prepare harder so that I can find myself every time there is an international competition.
I also have a desire to perform well and have my name remembered by many people,” he said, raising his voice. It was also a time to see and feel many things.
Noh Si-hwan said, “We play together in the league, but we don’t have many opportunities to share how we train. “It was a time of learning in many aspects,” he nodded.
They will also be competing in the Asian Professional Baseball Championship (APBC) right now.
This time too, he took on the responsibility of number 4. Director Ryu Joong-il, who took the baton after AG
pointed out Noh Si-hwan’s name. He did not hide his desire for long shots.
Noh Si-hwan said, “I think we should always aim to win any competition wearing the Taegeuk symbol.
I think we can achieve good results if we continue the trend from AG,” he emphasized.
He also expressed his expectations for the Korea-Japan war. Japan, the inaugural champion, is considered a strong candidate to win this tournament as well.
Isn’t it important that we don’t want to lose to each other? I want to do my best to stick together.
