Hyungjong Lee (34, Kiwoom) told me the heart of a warm senior.

 Professional baseball Kiwoom won 2-1 in the home game against LG in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 5th.

 The pitching staff, including starting pitcher Choi Won-tae, shone. It was right fielder Lee Hyeong-jong who added strength to the mound at the beginning of the game. In the first inning, with two outs and first base, he threw himself into a hit by Austin Dean, an outsider. He caught it cleanly, prevented a run crisis, and ended the inning.안전놀이터

 Lee Hyeong-jong said, “I wasn’t sure how much Austin’s power was. The moment the ball hit, I thought it would be a hit that fell too low and fell in front of me,” he said. At the moment, it seems to have been handled well,” he explained.

 He flexed his gloved wrist inward to secure the ball. Lee Hyeong-jong said, “At first, I was worried because I was broken, but it got better quickly. Fortunately, it’s okay,” he said, laughing shyly, saying, “I think I just played basic defense.”

 “I really wanted to win,” he said, raising his voice. There is a reason. I thought of my junior Lee Jung-hoo, who was sidelined due to an injury. Lee Jung-hoo is Kiwoom’s key hitter and main center fielder. But recently, during weight training, I developed back pain. On the 4th and 5th, all of them missed the LG match. Not a serious injury. In order to protect the player, he plans to play after fully recovering.

 Lee Hyeong-jong said with strength, “I wanted to help ease the burden on (Lee) Jeong-hoo’s heart by winning.” He said, “Because he is both the captain and the representative hitter, he must be sorry for his teammates. I wanted to give strength to Jung-hoo after the players did their best to win,” he said. “I know because I was sick too. It will be very uncomfortable,” he said. He said, “After the win, Jung-hoo really liked it and gave me a high-five. I’m glad,” he smiled, saying, “I hope you get well soon and come back.”
