KT Kang Baek-ho continues to feel the peak of hitting in the demonstration game.
Kang Baek-ho came out as the designated hitter twice against Doosan in an exhibition match held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 21st and recorded 2 hits and 2 walks in 4 at-bats. Kang Baek-ho also hit in his first at-bat in his demonstration game, which came as a pinch hitter at the end of the 8th inning against Doosan the day before. For two days, he succeeded in getting on base in all batting positions in the demonstration game.
Kang Baek-ho hit Doosan starter Choi Won-joon in the first at-bat in the first inning with a hit to the left and a hit to the middle right in the third inning. He picked out a walk after a full count in the 5th inning with 2 outs and 1st base, and in the 7th inning without an out and 1st and 3rd base, he got a walk again from the changed pitcher Kim Ho-jun.안전놀이터
Kang Baek-ho also performed well in the World Baseball Classic (WBC) with 7 hits in 14 at-bats during 4 games in the group stage. KT coach Lee Kang-cheol, who led the WBC team, said on the day, “Kang Baek-ho’s hitting feeling has been good since the training camp in the United States.” Kang Baek-ho, who was sluggish with a batting average of 0.245 and 6 homers last year due to injuries, is eager to start this season to recover his pride.
