Kiwoom Heroes outfielder Lee Yong-kyu (36) has been accumulating hits from practice games. They are giving off positive energy inside and outside the ground.
Lee Yong-kyu started as the second batter and left fielder in a practice game with Doosan at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 14th, recording two hits in two at-bats. In particular, it was encouraging that he hit a foreign pitcher Ariel Miranda (32) at the end of the first inning. In a practice game with Doosan on the 11th, he showed off his outstanding batting skills by hitting one hit in two at-bats.
Currently, Kiwoom has played two practice games alongside Hanwha and Doosan in preparation for the season, but the only game Lee Yong-kyu has not hit is the match against Hanwha in Daejeon on March 6. In the midst of Kiwoom manager Hong Won-ki (48), he is only playing four to five innings, not the entire game, but he is maintaining a high sense of hitting.
Lee Yong-kyu, who was released from Hanwha after the end of last season, signed a contract with Kiwoom to receive a total of 150 million won ahead of this season. The guaranteed amount is only 100 million won. Kiwoom recruited a free agent-class player for 100 million won. Already, Lee Yong-kyu is being evaluated as a “beneficial contract.” It is compared to the “Kim Hye-ja Lunch Box” of a convenience store that has a lot of side dishes compared to the price, which is good for cost-effectiveness.
Lee Yong-kyu also plays a role as a ‘club house leader’. Kiwoom outfielder Heo Jung-hyeop (31) said about Lee Yong-kyu, “I am learning many things regardless of competition. He’s a very nice guy. “I think it’s better that Lee Yong-kyu came to the team,” he laughed.
The bench is also giving enough 스포츠중계 consideration to Lee Yong-kyu. He has decided to use him as a corner outfielder with relatively less defensive burden this season. Coach Hong Won-ki said, “(Lee Yong-kyu) should lead the players. I think there will be some invisible parts. We want to do something about that rather than specific figures.”
