If Hanwha plays one more game, Ha Joo-seok will also be released from disciplinary action, but he will not return to the first division immediately. He will go through the process of adapting to the actual game in the Futures League of the second division. 스포츠토토탑
Hanwha played 69 games of the season until the match against KT in Daejeon on the 27th. Ha Joo-seok, who was caught driving under the influence of alcohol in November last year and was suspended for 70 games by the KBO, is now one game away from disciplinary action. He will also be able to play in the first division match from the match against KT on the 29th, when disciplinary action ends.
However, there is no immediate first-team call-up. Hanwha manager Choi Won-ho said in a meeting with reporters before the game on the 27th, “We haven’t played a single game yet.” You have to play the game first. “I think I should listen to how I’m feeling while playing the game,” he said.
The disciplinary action against KBO suspension applies to both official games in the first and second divisions. Ha Joo-seok, who has been focusing on personal training in Seosan’s residual army during the disciplinary period, did not play in the actual game. It was not a violation of regulations to play in practice games with a university team or an independent team, but I had to be conscious of public opinion.
During this period, Ha Joo-seok participated in volunteer activities along with personal training. Last month, he visited his alma mater Shinil High School and donated his talent as a one-point lesson, and Italian priest Kim Ha-jong visited Anna’s House,” a shelter for the underprivileged, including homeless people and teenagers, in Seongnam, Gyeonggi-do.”
Ha Joo-seok said, “I will continue to serve in my spare time, not just once. Whatever my circumstances may be, I will regularly visit Anna’s house to serve meals to neighbors in need and continue to wash the dishes. He promised, “I will think about and find out what will help the homeless and teenagers here.”
Ha Joo-seok’s official game is the last match against Changwon NC on October 8 last year, the final match of the season. Coach Choi said, “We haven’t played a game in eight months. He said, “I’ve only been training and batting live,” adding, “When I’m ready to join the first division, I’ll talk to the club and decide.” After the disciplinary action is over, there is no reason not to use it in the first division.
If he finds some sense of play in the Futures League, he seems to be called by the first team. Head coach Choi said, “Ha Joo-seok’s shortstop defense is a top class even in the KBO League as a whole,” adding, “If you expect a blow from Ha Joo-seok, you need more time to prepare.” I can’t keep up with the fast ball because I haven’t played for eight months. If you just look at the defense, you can move it forward a little bit. Still, since there is a gap (in the second division), it is necessary to play about five innings at first, take a day off, and increase it to nine innings. “If the Futures League game is not canceled due to rain and proceeds normally, I think it will be possible to call up (in the first half).” In the Futures League, he can play from the match against Ganghwa SSG on the 29th.
Amid Ha Joo-seok’s departure, Hanwha’s Oh Sun-jin, Park Jung-hyun and Lee Do-yoon shared the shortstop position this season. At the beginning of the season, Park Jung-hyun received a chance as the main player first, but it fell short of expectations, and veteran Oh Sun-jin has been active since May. However, he was hit in the jaw by a ball in the match against Kiwoom in Daejeon on the 1st and moved to the rehabilitation group. Lee Do-yoon is struggling as a main player while his return to the first division has been delayed while controlling the hamstring pain that has not been good. When Ha Joo-seok returns, it is expected that Hanwha will have a significant power increase in defense and team depth.
