Lee Jae-won, a promising LG giant, showed his true worth.

Lee Jae-won started as the 8th left fielder in the match against KT held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 17th. In the 4th inning, which was a 1-2 chase, he hit a double with 3 RBIs, sweeping the runner over the center fielder’s height in the 4th inning. It was a final shot. LG won 7-3. 

In this one room, I was able to properly know Lee Jae-won’s ability. He swung the bat like lightning at KT starter Schulser’s 140km cutter, and the bullet hit with a batting speed of 181.8km stretched out and passed the height of center fielder Alford. It was a top-class batting speed in the major leagues to the point that Alford couldn’t judge the batted ball properly. Lee Jae-won’s exit velocity of 181.8 km was the KBO League’s highest record this season. 

At the end of the interview, Lee Jae-won said, “This season’s fastest speed,” and he said, “I want to set the fastest batting speed ever.” 

In the 5th inning, with 1 out, 2nd and 3rd base chance, Lee Jae-won got an automatic intentional 4th pitch and walked out. It was compensation for the double hit earlier. Following the home run in consecutive hits the previous day, the double hit that day showed the potential of the next-generation giant. 

After the game, Lee Jae-won said about the come-from-behind double, “I think it was helpful because coach Lee Ho-jun talked a lot rather than Norim-soo.” 메이저놀이터

He was overjoyed to walk out to the 4th pitch of the automatic high. Lee Jae-won said with a smile, “It felt so good. I wanted to hit it, but honestly…” Because it meant that the opposing team acknowledged it greatly.

The season was delayed due to two oblique injuries during spring camp and demonstration games. In early May, he belatedly joined the first team. Lee Jae-won said, “When I first started in the Samsung game, the coach told me, ‘Always be relaxed.’

In the previous two innings, the left fielder’s defense also succeeded in home care. He caught Alford’s hit from second out and threw home, tagging out second base runner Kang Baek-ho. Lee Jae-won said with a smile, “I felt good. It was very good, similar to hitting a home run. After throwing, I said please, but I think I was out because it was Baekho. I’ll have to call you after it’s over.” 

In May of last year, he hit multiple home runs in one game and recorded a batting average of 30.00 with 5 home runs for a month. However, he performed poorly in June with a batting average of 10%. Lee Jae-won showed determination not to repeat last year’s failure, saying, “Rather than being confident, I try not to attack at bat. Last year, there was a time when I felt good at hitting, but after that, I attacked a lot and it was not good. I will try not to do that.”
