“Did I look tired?” The weight that SSG captain & 4th hitter Han Yu-seom was willing to carry again

“No matter how messed up my insides are, I can never show it off, and I shouldn’t show it again.”

Last year, SSG Landers achieved an unprecedented ‘Wire-to-Wire’ integrated championship in the history of the KBO League. From the regular season to the Korean series, the top has never been taken away. It was clear that SSG was supported by veterans such as Kim Kang-min and Choo Shin-soo, and leading stars such as Kim Gwang-hyeon and Choi Jeong, but SSG coach Kim Won-hyeong and other players also highly appreciate the credit of Hanyu Island (34), who served as captain and fourth hitter at the same time.

Hanyu Island took over as temporary captain in place of Lee Jae-won, who left due to a side injury in August 2021, and was appointed as the official captain in 2022 to lead the team. There are many things I felt after becoming the captain. “It was something I could never have done without help,” he said. When I won the championship in 2018, I think the captain (Lee) Jae-won helped my brother as much as possible, but when I put myself in his position, it was actually very different.” . Rather, he said, ‘I know you’re not one to think and decide, so I’ll respect your choice.’” 온라인카지노

Hanyu Island took on another important responsibility together. He started 100 games, the most in the team as the fourth hitter last year, and came out as a fixer whenever the team needed it. He achieved a batting average of 0.264, OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.850, 21 homers, and 100 RBIs in 135 games, the only team on the team to achieve triple-digit RBI. WPA (Win Probability Contribution/Sports to I), which can measure clutch ability, was 1.92, which was 2nd in the team and 6th overall. However, Hanyu Island said, “I didn’t like anything except for the production of RBIs.”

Claims have a lot to worry about. He has a hard time thinking only of himself, but he has to look at his colleagues and even the atmosphere in the team. Hanyu Island said, “The pressure was double. Maybe that’s why he looked so hard. He had a really strong desire to protect him. I, as the captain, can have a big impact on the team atmosphere, so even when my insides get irritated, I can never show it, and I shouldn’t show it again.” I am very satisfied with that,” he said.

Hanyu Island was also willing to accept the captaincy for the 2023 season. He said, “The coach asked me over the phone to take over as captain again this year. At first, I joked, ‘Can’t you meet me and talk to me’, but before I hung up, he laughed and said, ‘Okay, I’ll make myself better and answer in the way I think’. Then, after meeting, I said ‘I’ll do it’ first,” he said. There is a message I want to leave to the players before the opening ceremony. I want to say, ‘Let’s play comfortably without burden, and never give up, but have fun.’”
