“I think I’ll have to go out with a character like this in the future (laughs).”

The KIA Tigers are on their spring camp schedule in Tucson, Arizona, USA. I arrived at the site at the end of last month and I am already digesting the final schedule. In the training that continues day after day, the number of words of the players gradually decreases, and their skin is tanned, showing signs of hardship.

In this atmosphere, Hwang Dae-in (27) acts as an endorphin. KIA coach Kim Jong-guk said, “Hwang Dae-in is leading the team atmosphere,” and “All players like (Hwang) Dae-in when he speaks and agree. He is the mood maker of our team.” He also laughed, saying, “Whether it’s spring or fall, short or long, all training is hard and tiring. When it’s hard, you really need a player like him (Hwang Dae-in). If Dae-in says one word at a time, the atmosphere improves.”

Hwang Dae-in played a role as a mood maker for KIA last season as well. During his training, his witty words and actions made his seniors and juniors laugh. During the game, he is more serious than ever, but he always brightened up the team atmosphere with a bright expression. In the 2022 KBO League All-Star Game, which he played for the first time in his life, he dressed up as a famous child character ‘Bungbungi’ and gave a laugh. Last season’s final result was a batting average of 2.56 in 129 games (122 hits in 476 at-bats), 14 home runs and 91 RBIs, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.716. In this spring camp, which took place after the first season of the full-time first team, leaving behind his achievements and regrets, Hwang Dae-in’s appearance is the same as usual. 토토사이트

Hwang Dae-in, who wore a KIA uniform in the 2nd round of the 2015 rookie draft, spent a long time going back and forth between the 1st and Futures (2nd) teams. It was only after returning to the team after completing his military service that he began to see the light, and last year he became a full-time starter. Director Kim said, “Hwang Dae-in was not an active personality from the beginning.” He added, “I’m weak on the inside, but it seems like I’m showing a brighter side to not show off on the outside.” Then he laughed, “Hwang Dae-in has to go out with that kind of character. I think the fans will like it even more. Even if you make mistakes, if you’re cute, they’ll look at you.” He is an indispensable player for our team.”
