“I want to be perfect as a first baseman.”
KT Wiz outfielder Moon Sang-cheol (32, kt Wiz) started to temper for the 2023 season. He is working hard for the upcoming season at his Futures League camp site in Iksan, Jeollabuk-do. “(Kim Ki-tae Futures League) coach is very considerate, so I share the schedule with the team, and I am training personally for what I lack. It seems that the training intensity has increased compared to last week.”
Moon Sang-cheol is registered as an outfielder on the KBO League homepage. Similarly, the Futures League spring camp roster announced by the club is also marked as an outfielder. However, Moon Sang-cheol plans to return to his main position, first baseman. There are national team first baseman Park Byeong-ho (37) and Kang Baek-ho (24) on the same team, but they chose to break through head-on.
Moon Sang-cheol said, “I practiced outfield at the 1st team spring camp in 2021-2022. Our team’s first baseman (depth) is higher, but the outfield is also good. I thought I wouldn’t be competitive (as an outfielder). This year, I wanted to become more perfect as a first baseman, so I told the manager and coaches, ‘I want to focus on first base,'” he explained.
“Our team’s first baseman is really good. There are two national team players. It’s mentally difficult, but I can’t change my position right now. I don’t know when or how the opportunity will come, but I’m in the position of a challenger. To seize the opportunity, I have no regrets until the end. If you want to try it, you have to be ready. I will prepare hard.”
Moon Sang-cheol played in the fewest games since his debut last year. As he tried to take a chance, an injury appeared and crippled him. It is also a regrettable moment that he picked up while looking back on his last season. 온라인바카라
In fact, Moon Sang-cheol played his best performance in the match against Kiwoom Heroes held at Suwon kt Wiz Park on July 28 last year. Against starter Ahn Woo-jin (24, Kiwoom Heroes), who was tied for 4th place in most wins (10 wins) and ranked 2nd in ERA (1.92), he hit 2 long hits including a home run and led the team to an 8-2 victory with a 3-hit game. . He picked up momentum by targeting the best pitchers in the league, but it didn’t last long. He was removed from the starting roster the next day. The reason is because of the side pain I felt the day before.
Moon Sang-cheol said, “There are days when I can see the ball well. Woo-jin Ahn is one of the best starting pitchers in Korea, so I stood at bat with the thought that even if I couldn’t hit it, it was worth it. Being comfortable led to good results. However, I continued to play in the first team. I’m not a player who stands out, but the game went well that day and I played almost all of the 1st to 9th innings. I’m really sorry.” I looked back.
Finally, Sang-cheol Moon revealed his strong determination for the 2023 season. “I’ve been going to first-team camp for a while, but this is the first time at the Futures League camp. I didn’t feel good at first, but it’s nice to be able to talk about batting with the coach (Kim Ki-tae, Futures League). Just because I’m here doesn’t mean the season is over. Prepare well here. If you do, I think you will be able to think that it didn’t go well because you had this time.”
