“The lower official is a prize that will go well.”
Doosan Bears defensive coach Cho Seong-hwan threw a good word to first baseman Yang Seok-hwan (32) after spring training at the Blacktown Baseball Stadium in Blacktown, Sydney, Australia on the 5th. After graduating from Dongguk University, Yang Seok-hwan made his professional debut in 2014 and will receive his first FA qualification after completing this season. Yang Seok-hwan, along with Kim Jae-hwan (35) and Yang Eui-ji (36), are adding weight to the team’s batting line and at the same time drawing a big picture of hitting the FA jackpot. Coach Jo gave Yang Seok-hwan a fighting spirit so that he could gain more strength.
The reason I mentioned ‘lower officer’ is because the two look similar. Coach Cho and Seok-hwan Yang both have a slightly raised chin on their faces. Yang Seok-hwan laughed as he shared the story behind the scenes, “If I do well, the coach says, ‘I like my chin.’
Coach Cho and Seok-hwan Yang are alumni of Baekwoon Elementary School and are closer than their looks. As much as the age difference is 15 years, when Yang Seok-hwan was in school, Coach Cho was playing professionally for the Lotte Giants.
Yang Seok-hwan still vividly remembers the scene where Coach Cho visited his alma mater and donated his talent. He said 안전놀이터, “I think I was in the 5th or 6th grade at the time. At the time, there were not many players from our school who were in the pros, and the best player at the time was the coach. I remember the coach came, but the coach remembered me. He didn’t do well,” he said.
This is the first time Coach Cho and Seok-hwan Yang have played together on the same team. Yang Seok-hwan was traded to Doosan in the 2021 season after Coach Cho left for the Hanwha Eagles. Coach Cho rejoined Doosan this year as coach Lee Seung-yeop.
Yang Seok-hwan is the most reliable person for coach Cho during defensive training. He shouts “fighting” louder than anyone else and actively participates in training. Coach Cho gave a thumbs up, praising, “I didn’t know that (Yang) Seok-hwan was so passionate.
Yang Seok-hwan said, “I hear a lot of people say that it’s such a (fluttering) image, but don’t people say that you have to experience it again to know it?” “he added.
Even though intense training continued in the scorching hot weather of over 30 degrees every day, Yang Seok-hwan continued to shout fighting without getting tired. He raised the training atmosphere by receiving the ball from the third baseman, shortstop, and second baseman. When captain Heo Gyeong-min (33) praised Hosobi by saying, “You’re doing something you haven’t done before, Seok-hwan Yang,” Yang Seok-hwan replied, “It’s a daily routine.”
Yang Seok-hwan revealed the reason for using more energy on the ground, saying, “I think you have to be noisy when playing infield fungo or call play. In the past, many young infielders have quiet personalities.
Last year, I had a season with regrets due to the aftermath of a side injury, so my goal this year is to spend a good season in good health. Heo Kyung-min, Kim Jae-hwan, Yang Eui-ji, Kim Jae-ho (37), and Jeong Su-bin (33), who are senior free agents in the team, are also receiving good energy.
Yang Seok-hwan said, “In the warm-up, only free agents stand in the first line. (Kim) Jae-ho hyung stands first, (Yang) Ui-ji hyung, (Kim) Jae-hwan hyung, (Jeong) Subin hyung, and (Huh) Kyung-min hyung. Stand up all the way. Then, ‘I’ll get some energy here too’ and put it on there (laughs). The hyungs commonly say that you should be comfortable. Technology is not easy to be bad all year round, so they tell you to just relax. “I was not in a hurry, and I vowed to surpass my personal record of 28 homers in 2021.
