There is nothing like the World Power Showcase as a stage where powerful high school baseball players can check their pure power.
In this showcase, which will be held in the U.S. after going through the domestic preliminaries, domestic players showed a pretty good performance. In particular, Jo Won-bin (St. Louis), the first Korean under-19 player to win the championship, went to the United States after graduating from high school.
Even before Cho Won-bin, many promising players challenged the dream stage. Kang Baek-ho (KT) and Kim Dae-han (Doosan), who were also active in the youth team, also participated in the preliminaries, but failed to win. Going beyond the walls of Gocheok Sky Dome to that extent was surprisingly difficult.
Those who stood out on the main stage of this power showcase are gradually improving their skills. Oh Young-soo (NC) and Byun Woo-hyuk (KIA) are the main characters. Although they were recognized for their power potential, those who had not stood out in the first team stage for a long time began to establish themselves little by little.
After Oh Young-soo won runner-up on the stage of the final round of the Power Showcase, there was talk of actually signing a contract in the US. In particular, San Francisco was the most active. However, I decided that it was better to build my skills in Korea than in the United States, so I waited for the nomination of a domestic club. And in the second round, when the hometown NC called his name, he couldn’t control his joy on the spot and shouted “Yaho!” As much as showmanship is abundant, it was expected that overflowing power would be shown in the pros as well.
However, immediately after joining the pros, he did not show as good a performance as he did in high school. Then, he refined his skills by enlisting as a managing director, and after his return last year, he gradually stood out by hitting 6 home runs in the first team stage. This year, he hit two homers while boasting an explosive sense of hitting immediately after the start of the season. Recently, as his defensive mistakes have been repeated, he has gradually stagnated in hitting, but he is sure to be a promising player with the talent to rebound someday. 메이저사이트
Byun Woo-hyeok, whom the Hanwha Eagles had high hopes for as a post-Kim Tae-gyun, is actually an up-and-coming player who won second place in the World Power Showcase finals. Although he is currently wearing a KIA uniform as a trade, Byun Woo-hyeok was also a person who could hit a double-digit home run at any time if his power potential exploded one day.
Byun Woo-hyeok, like Oh Young-soo, checked his skills after completing his military service in Sangmu. However, it was different from Oh Young-soo in that it was not his hometown team that burst his potential. He was traded right away after he was discharged last year and bit by bit established himself with 3 home runs. Currently, Byun Woo-hyeok is recording 2 homers like Oh Young-soo. On the 22nd, he recorded the first home run in his career, showing the most impact after his joining.
Oh Young-soo and Byeon Woo-hyuk, two power hitters, have many similarities in many ways. Although he was active as a third baseman in high school, he is basically capable of defending first base and has the potential to hit 20 or more home runs at any time. Watching how the two prospects will end the season will be another point of observation for this professional baseball game.
