The most recent video of Kang Jung-ho_King Kang, a 36-year-old YouTube channel, is the attitude and quality of a leader that he posted about eight days ago. He said, “A leader in my opinion should study endlessly and accurately judge and prescribe players based on that.” In fact, Son Ah-seop (35, NC Dinos), who showed poor performance in the 2022 season, contributed to two wins in batting average, and was recognized for his ability.
The second KBO Leaguer from Kang Jung-ho School has been named. He is Kim Jae-hwan (35, Doosan Bears). According to sources in the industry, he is currently training at Kang Jung-ho Academy in Los Angeles. He completed a rare full-time training session in Icheon in November, and moved to the U.S., even without being active. 사설 토토사이트
Manager Lee Seung-yeop himself coached Kim Jae-hwan as a sweatshirt, drawing keen attention. Not only that, but also Kang Jung-ho instructs him. That is how desperate he is for the 2024 season. Anyone can tell that his performance was so poor this season. He played 89 percent of 405 times at bat in 132 games, with a batting average of 0.220 10 homers, 46 RBIs and an OPS of 0.674.
In fact, the decline of Kim Jae-hwan has begun in 2022. His batting average fell to 0.248 in 128 games. Still, he saved face with 23 home runs, 72 RBIs and an OPS of 0.800. It was not a bad performance except for the batting average, as it was short of his name value. However, this season has been a serious one.
The cause and prescription of the poor batting performance that manager Lee Seung-yeop and Kang Jung-ho saw could be the same or different. It seems that Kim Jae-hwan has to decide after all, and should be stimulated first. I can see the request and wishes of Doosan fans in the comments on the post on Kang’s YouTube channel. One fan said, “(Kang Jung-ho) saves Kim Jae-hwan after Son Ah-seop.”
Then, how does Kang view the slump of Kim Jae-hwan? There is a video clip that gave a detailed analysis of Kim’s slump about two months ago. According to Kang, his batting posture during the 2022-2023 seasons, which was in good shape, is clearly different from that of the 2016-2017 seasons when he was in good shape.
Commenting on a good leader, Kang admitted that he cannot change all players. However, he said he has the confidence to persuade Kim what the problem is and which direction he is going. On Kim Jae-hwan, he said, “Unlike Son Ah-seop, he is a home run hitter, so it is right to focus on slugging.”
In a video clip of Kim Jae-hwan’s analysis two months ago, Kang said, “I used to use ground reaction force well back then, but now I am not using ground reaction force well. As the center was too far behind me, I lost my power and was less accurate.”
Taking Bryce Harper’s (Philadelphia Phillies) batting as an example, Kang said, “My face and the center of the bat are close, and I am staring at the heating point.” He said, “By making good use of ground reaction force, strong power comes out.” On the other hand, Kim Jae-hwan said, “Bat is far from the face,” adding, “Bat comes out from behind, shortening the trajectory of forward movement.” In other words, he cannot cope with the breaking ball because he cannot drag the heating point forward enough. In such a situation, I can hear my wrist to hit the breaking ball.” The conclusion is that this will result in a foul or an infield grounder.
Still, Kang did not doubt Kim’s revival. “His power is one of the top three in Korea. If I change my swing a little, I will hit two to 30 home runs. I lost my strength and speed a little, but I am not aware of that and try to change my swing style,” Kang said. “After watching the 2017 video, I need to change how I swing and how I should change my swing style.”
