“Last year’s home run king” Park Byung-ho’s reflection and determination…”Recovering your long-hitting skills, not a record goal”

Although it was a good performance in its own way, Park Byung-ho (37, KT Wiz) was not satisfied with his first half. I wonder what’s on my mind.

Park Byung-ho, who has been hitting double-digit home runs every year since 2011 when he was a Nexen Heroes (now Kiwoom Heroes),먹튀검증 became the home run king by shooting 35 home runs last year after wearing a KT uniform as a free agent. As the season approached the end, he suffered an ankle injury, but he showed his strong will by choosing rehabilitation instead of surgery and playing in the postseason.

Park Byung-ho, who played in 71 games this season, has 66 hits in 247 at-bats, a batting average of 0.267 with 6 home runs and 42 RBIs. There are only three home runs left until double-digit home runs for 11 consecutive seasons. However, there are fewer home runs compared to last year when he showed off an overwhelming pace.

However, both the team and the player themselves set the stage for a turnaround. KT, which remained in the lower ranks until May, rebounded in June and succeeded in raising the team’s ranking to seventh place by continuing its momentum until July. Park Byung-ho also made up for his disappointment with a batting average of 0.313 with one home run and seven RBIs in nine games in July.

At a fan signing event held as a pre-event for the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO All-Star Game at Sajik Baseball Stadium in Busan on the 15th, Park Byung-ho said, “In fact, my long-hitting power has decreased a lot compared to last year’s performance. “If I had done more, I would have had a good result, so that was a shame,” he said. “Anyway, I think I was able to cheer up at the end as all the players who were injured in the first half returned.”

However, Park Byung-ho, who did not hide his desire for a “home run” as a home run hitter, said, “I don’t have a record goal, and I think it will be a big thing to play a role of restoring long-hitting power and scoring two runs when the team needs one.”

Park Byung-ho also did not forget to cheer for his junior Kang Baek-ho, who is somewhat intimidated. He said, “Kang Baek-ho seems to be still struggling when I saw him last time, but I hope he can relax as soon as possible,” adding, “I’m a little cautious, but I hope the day will come when he finds a Kang Baek-ho-like play as soon as possible.”

KT and Park Byung-ho, who finished all their schedules in the first half after the All-Star Game, are undergoing reorganization through a break, and they will start the second half with three consecutive away games against the Samsung Lions from the 21st to the 23rd.

Park Byung-ho, who has a heavy responsibility as a senior, said, “It will probably be a fiercer race in the second half. “I hope we start again with the idea of renewing it with a good feeling at the end without injury,” he said. “I think it would be good if all teams and players were not injured.” I think we should do it without injury as well. “I hope that players, including myself, who think they were sluggish in the first half, will cheer up a little in the second half and help them compete in the rankings,” he said.
