This is a professional bunt.”
Lotte, which is holding a spring camp in Guam, an American territory, shared memories with local baseball dreamers through talent donation. In particular, coach Kim Pyeong-ho drew attention by teaching local high school baseball players basic온라인카지노 bunt skills with a lecture reminiscent of a ‘one hit instructor’.
On the 17th, 15 students from the baseball team of Simon Sanchez High School visited Dededo Sports Complex, Lotte’s campsite. When the full-scale batting training, which also served as live training, began, the students who entered the stadium in threes, threes and five stood on the wire net outside the auxiliary stadium and watched the players practice. Head coach Park Heung-sik of Lotte said, “The students of the local high school baseball club tried to hold a class as a talent donation, but it was canceled because the schedule did not match. He gestured for me to come closer, saying, “I don’t know if you are far away, but you will learn if you come closer.”
It is not easy to watch the training of professional players up close and breathe together. Not only the student players, but also the coaches watched the training of Lotte players with an interesting expression. It happened during live training, so when a fast ball flew in or a sharp ball reached the outfield, they saluted with applause. After watching the 20-minute live training, the student players moved to Stadium C, where bunt training was in full swing.
Young players such as Han Dong-hee and Kim Min-soo were practicing bunt training, but coach Kim Pyeong-ho sent the players to Stadium B, where they were conducting batting training, saying, “Give way to the students.” Coach Kim, a master of strategy and running, has a clear philosophy on the basic bunt technique. In other words, the so-called ‘Ilta Instructor”s luxury lecture went to Guam’s local student athletes.
Coach Kim demonstrated several times, saying, “Bunting is to hit with the left foot and the right hand (for right-handed hitters).” He told me in detail that I had to grip the bat tightly with my right hand so that it wouldn’t be pushed by a strong ball, that I didn’t hit it forward from my stance, and that I didn’t have to try to roll the ball to the 1st and 3rd base foul lines.
The student players, who were listening with serious expressions, started practicing with the help of Coach Kim. The appearance of not being able to hit the ball properly or having a strong hitting ball that was not worth bunting gradually disappeared. They trained enthusiastically, with players shouting “one more time” appearing.
Coach Kim said, “It’s a small part, but it’s an essential skill in baseball.” If you go forward, 140 km/h feels like 145 km, but if you move your front foot backwards, it has the effect of appearing as 135 km.”
A key official from the club said, “Guam’s student athletes train or play at the baseball field mainly on Fridays and Saturdays. There are many cases where training continues even on weekends, and due to variables such as rest days, we met late. If I come to Guam for training next year, I will create a culture where I can interact with more local student athletes.”
