“It was a risky change…” I found the answer after the ordeal, KBO’s ‘top chaser’

Risk-taking changes worked. The stormy growth of Noh Si-hwan (23, Hanwha), who set the personal record of 18 home runs before the end of the first half, is turning the KBO league upside down.

Noh Si-hwan exploded a two-run home run in Daejeon Lotte on the 5th. In the 5th inning, with the score tied 1-1, Lotte starting pitcher Na Kyun-an did not miss a missed pitch that came high in the middle of the 2nd pitch. He hit a 146km fastball with a lightning-like swing, and the ball flew over the deepest center wall at Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park in an instant with a low trajectory. It flew like a bullet so that the exit velocity was measured at 173 km/h. The flying distance is 125m.바카라사이트

A home run made with a full swing with the upper body tilted back with powerful body rotation reminiscent of Park Byeong-ho (KT). At the moment of impact, I didn’t expect it to be a home run, but the ball went farther than expected. I myself was quite surprised. After the game, Noh Si-hwan said, “I didn’t know I would pass. When I hit a home run, I feel good, but the trajectory was low, and I hardly remember passing the center in Daejeon. Daejeon center is very far. I thought it was about getting caught in the center or going over the height of the center fielder, but it went over the fence. I was also surprised,” he said.

The distance from the home to the fence is 122m, and the height of Hanwha Life Eagles Park is 4m. It is difficult to hit a home run as a center. Noh Si-hwan hit a mid-month home run in Daejeon on June 13, 2020 against Doosan (distance against Yu Hee-gwan, 130 m), against LG on April 24, 2021 (distance against Dae-Hyun Kim, distance 125 m), against SSG on April 23 last year (Ivan Nova 125m opponent distance), and 4th.

Noh Si-hwan, whose home run was the 18th of the season on this day, closely followed Choi Jeong (SSG, 19), who ranked first in this category, in second place by one car. Noh Si-hwan, who participated in all 74 games this year and recorded a batting average of 3.15 li (93 hits in 295 at-bats), 18 homers, 54 RBIs, an on-base percentage of .394, a slugging percentage of .556, and an OPS of .950, not only homers, but also RBIs, slugging percentage, and OPS are second only to the best. rise above He is the ultimate pursuer.

Roh Si-hwan, who had 18 home runs in 458 at-bats in 107 games in 2021, the most in a season, hit 18 homers in 335 at-bats in 74 games this year. Arithmetically, a 35 home run pace. Following Kim Tae-gyun (31) in 2008, expectations are rising for the first home run king belonging to Hanwha in 15 years. Noh Si-hwan said, “Of course I want to be the home run king. It’s a dream,” he said, “but it always didn’t work out when I was conscious of that. If you do what you have been doing up to now without being conscious of it, I think a good title will follow.”

Noh Si-hwan, who has been attracting attention as a geopo prospect since joining Hanwha as the 2nd overall pick in the 2nd round of the 2nd round in 2019, suddenly fell into a ‘home run slump’ last year. His batting average rose to 2.8 and 1 li, but his home run ended on August 6 last year with Suwon KT’s 6th gun of the previous season. In the last 46 games of the season, 203 consecutive at-bats were hit without a home run. He was originally a hitter with many pushed homers, but last year he only pulled one homer.

One senior player said, “If Sihwan can’t hit, we won’t score. I’m young, but I know that too. He couldn’t hit a home run because he couldn’t swing his swing and focused on getting an RBI or getting on base.” As I put more emphasis on accuracy than big things, my hitting point gradually went back, and once I got used to it, it was difficult to get it back during the season. The barren environment of the team, which had no choice but to be intensively checked, seemed to hinder Noh Si-hwan’s growth.

He went through trials, but found answers in them. Noh Si-hwan said, “Because the hitting point is behind, even if the breaking ball had to be hit in front, it didn’t go over. He looked at the ball all the way, so the timing was too late.” He changed his preparation stance with his bat on his shoulder. He takes the bat off his shoulder and goes into power position with it still. He changed his form to swing as quickly as possible, putting his hitting point in the front.

He started with two home runs in March and April, but kept it steadfast. He caught fire with 7 home runs in May, and his momentum continued with 6 home runs in June. He hit 3 home runs in 3 games in July, and the home runs have not stopped in the summer. Of his 18 home runs, he hit 12 of them with the left wall (6) and the left center wall (6). In 2021, out of 18 home runs, there were a lot of home runs that were pushed by left (4) and left center (3) with 7, but this year, the number of home runs that were pulled has noticeably increased. The effect of pulling the heating point appears as it is.

Noh Si-hwan said, “It is important to change the heating point. I took risks and made extreme changes in order to hit a home run, but I am satisfied that it is going well so far. I am preparing every day with the thought of not being late for the hitting point,” he said. The weather has gotten really hot these days, but I will manage my stamina well so that I can continue the good flow until the end of the season so that I can participate in all games.”
