Moon Bo-kyung conducted the second day of training for the national baseball team at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 24th.
He performed base learning, throwing, and PFP training with pitchers. He also played infield defense. Moon Bo-kyung’s main position is third base, but he started defensive training at first base on the day. There was Noh Si-hwan at third base. Under the leadership of coach Lee Jong-yeol, defensive training of second, third, and shortstop was conducted, and Moon Bo-kyung focused on catching their throws at first base.
The training lasted about three hours. 스포츠토토<
Moon Bo-kyung, who met after training, said, “There are still awkward players, so it can feel like a solemn atmosphere, but I’m doing well in a pleasant atmosphere.”
Moon Bo-kyung goes around with Noh Si-hwan, who is in the same position. ”We do batting training together, and we talk a lot about small things,” he said. ”The room is directly opposite, so I often talk during breaks,” he explained.
Although his body is in Gocheok, his mind cannot leave Jamsil. Since the league is still proceeding normally, I can’t help but wonder about the results of the game of his team LG.
Moon Bo-kyung said, “I can’t help but look at it. I can’t help but see (laughs). I’m really curious. ”I even saw him win 2-1 before he came out,” he said with a smile.
When Kim Min-sung, who played as a third baseman on behalf of Moon Bo-kyung, hit a home run, he made a surprise (?) remark, saying, “I think it’s better without me,” and added, “I’ll cheer hard even from afar because there are seniors who are stronger than me.” I’ll do my job here. ”I think it’s right to focus more on this because I’m going to represent the country,” he said.
Moon Bo-kyung, who played first base defense for the first time in a long time, said, “I have never played first base defense this year. Maybe that’s why I felt awkward when I was standing. Hyesung and Seonghan’s throws are too strong, so my hands hurt,” he said, shaking his hands.
Before joining the national team, Moon Bo-kyung received energy from reliable LG brothers. He also revealed the behind-the-scenes story, saying, “(Oh) Ji-hwan told me to go with confidence, so I hugged Hyun-soo, who went to the national team.”
Kim Hyun-soo has set a number of big records in international competitions. Starting with the 2008 Beijing Olympics, he has worn the national flag 10 times until 2023 WBC. At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, he won the gold medal in all nine games, and won the 2009 WBC runner-up and the 2015 Premier 12 title.
He also captained his last international tournament, 2023 WBC.
He left his footprint in Korean baseball with a career batting average of 0.35377 with four home runs and 48 RBIs in 62 games in 10 tournaments.
Moon Bo-kyung said, “He hugged me even though he asked me if I was doing this among men. He also told me to go and do well,” he said, giving warmth.
Finally, Moon Bo-kyung said, “I don’t think I’m doing anything, but I just want the team to win. ”I think it would be better if I won because I did well, but I think it would be better if I won,” he said emphatically.
