A bold ambition conveyed by the future of KT infielders.
The infielder who joined the Wizard Corps with the evaluation of immediate power had to leave for a while to solve military problems. And he appeared at the festival with a stocky physique. Cheon Seong-ho , who currently plays in the Futures League as a member of Sangmu Baseball Team (Army Sports Corps), is the main character.
Seongho Chun, who graduated from Gwangju Jinheung High School and Dankook University, was nominated by KT Wiz in the 12th place in the 2nd round in 2020. From 2020, the first year of his debut, he made his name known by playing in more than 100 games in the first team for two years, and his first-team career performance in the 2020-2021 season was 107 games, 111 at bats, 26 hits, batting average 0.234, 5 RBIs, OPS 0.585.
After applying for the Sangmu baseball team at the end of 2021, he passed the first document screening and was unable to make it to the final list of successful applicants, but after applying again, he was notified of his final acceptance at the end of April last year. Cheon Seong-ho, who enlisted on May 2 of the same year, is scheduled to be discharged in early November this year.
Prior to the 2023 KBO Futures All-Star Game held at Sajik Baseball Stadium in Busan on the 14th, Chun Seong-ho said, “I’m trying to show a good figure while serving in the military. I was preparing well by doing a lot of weight training and working out in my spare time.” told
n particular, Seongho Cheon said that he had more time to invest in weight training. He said, “(Sangmu) is so well-equipped that I have no choice but to do weights.”
His performance in the Futures League after enlisting as Sangmu is also noteworthy. Last year, 81 games, 217 at-bats, 60 hits, batting average 0.276, 35 RBIs, OPS 0.722, and 49 games, 178 at-bats, 62 hits, batting average 0.348, 33 RBIs, OPS 0.879, the numbers have changed dramatically in a year. Chun Seong-ho is running third in batting average in the Southern League following Dong-wook Seo (Lotte Giants, 0.372) and Joo-chan Park (NC Dinos, 0.356). 스포츠토토사이트
Cheon Seong-ho said, “I paid more attention when hitting, and when I was defending, I prepared better to be more relaxed than when I was outside. “I wonder if there’s something more comfortable in the mental part, but I feel good because I feel like I’m showing a better image than when I was outside.”
He continued, “(Having a margin) seems to have been helpful in both hitting and defense. You have to do well outside to be able to stay and play, but even if you do well in business management, you are just at Futures, so that kind of mind helped to some extent. I think. I will prepare better so that I can show this image to my team next year.”
KT, which is looking forward to the growth and performance of young infielders, is waiting for Cheon Seong-ho to join. It can also be an opportunity from a player’s point of view. Chun Seong-ho said, “Of course I look forward to it, but I have to do well to get another chance, and when given a chance, I have to grab it to stay in the first team, so I have to take the opportunity.” I want to do that,” he said of his goal.
Cheon Seong-ho, who was able to meet fans through the Futures All-Star Game after a long time, couldn’t hide his excitement. He said, “It’s been a long time since I wanted to play in a place with a lot of fans because the atmosphere itself is different when the fans come in and when they aren’t there.” Good job” he smiled. Chun Seong-ho, who played as the 3rd batter and 3rd baseman for the Southern All-Star, made a multi-hit performance with 2 hits in 5 at-bats.
As each day passes, the discharge is gradually approaching, and Chun Seong-ho wants to live up to the expectations of his fans. He said, “I am really grateful that the fans are waiting for me, and I will prepare better so that I can do well from this year’s finish camp to the spring camp so that I can do well next year like this year.”
