I proved why I came in just one game. Now Kiwoom Heroes infielder Lee Won-seok (37) has shown his true value from his first game.
Lee Won-seok메이저놀이터 started as first baseman in the 5th in a home game against KT Wiz held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 27th, wearing a Kiwoom uniform at the end of the 2nd inning and hit a left-handed hit on the first pitch from the first at-bat.
In the previous inning, Lee Won-seok, who defended first base and caught a ball that went out of the 1-2 section with 2 outs loaded, and prevented a run, received a big compliment from the fans.
Koh Hyung-wook, general manager of Kiwoom, gave away bullpen pitcher Kim Tae-hoon to the Samsung Lions on the morning of the 27th as the reason for recruiting 37-year-old veteran Lee Won-seok, saying, “Because he is an experienced player, he can center the team. He can take responsibility for first base on behalf of (first baseman) Park Joo-hong and Jeon Byeong-woo, who are in sluggish batting.”
Director Kiwoom Hong Won-ki also said, “Lee Won-seok is a good baseball player. He will be used as first base as well as designated hitter and third baseman.”
As soon as he transferred, he started and proved the reason for the trade in front of the home fans even before the game was over.
Lee Won-seok also pledged, “I will do my best to help the team, whether it be batting or defending, in order to live up to the expectations of the club.” Wearing the uniform of the Hero Corps and getting the first hit, Lee Won-seok’s steps became lighter.
