LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop plays baseball by catching moments that require a real strategy, such as a one-point match, and putting them into practice. So, director Yeom Kyung-yeop has always made use of professional runners.
This year, Shin Min-jae becomes Yeom Kyung-yeop’s persona. Shin Min-jae has participated in all 7 exhibition games the team has played so far and has recorded 4 stolen bases. However, he only went to the plate three times. He steals more bases than hits. This is also a part that reveals the baseball view of director Yeom Kyung-yeop well. In the first team game, players are given a clear mission and create a situation where they can focus on that mission.
Director Yeom Kyung-yeop has a clear principle in appointing a large runner. “It’s not a runner’s job to get home on singles from second base,” he thinks. He said that scoring a single hit in scoring position is something a normal player should be able to do.
Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop thinks the real purpose of a great runner is to make one out and third base out of first base. To do that, he must be able to steal third base as well as second base.
Shin Min-jae has attempted to steal four times in the last three games, and all have been successful. In fact, until last year, he was quick on his feet but not a great stealer. He jumped 35 times and lived 22 times. His success rate is 63%. However, director Yeom Gyeong-yeop singled out Shin Min-jae as the first runner. His stolen base success rate can be increased through analysis, but the ability of quick feet is difficult to acquire.
Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said,먹튀검증 “If you say something when you are caught, a player never (skill) improves. It’s a difficult position to be a runner. It’s a position where you can be criticized when you fail, but if you point out even the coaching staff, you can’t start from then on. ‘It’s okay, but still.’ I will keep using it,” he said. “The team needs to analyze and help when to run. It’s something a player can’t do alone.” ▶ Shin Min-jae runner runner 5th runner in NC
