On this day, Noh Si-hwan’s bat spewed fire. He went 2-for-1 with 1 hit (1 home run), 1 walk, 2 RBIs and 2 runs scored.
His hit record is one, but it is encouraging in that he hit a home run in two games. He came out in his first at-bat. In the first inning when the score was 0-0, he fired a two-runner with first base unharmed.
Hanwha, who took the lead with Roh Si-hwan’s home run, slammed the mound of the Dutch national team and won two consecutive victories.
Noh Si-hwan is the central batsman of the eagle corps. In the last 2019 rookie draft, he was nominated as the 3rd overall pick in the 2nd 1st round and was considered the best power hitter prospect at the time.
He played in 106 games and hit 12 home runs in the 2020 season. The 2021 season finally burst into potential. In 107 games he had a batting average of .271 with 18 home runs and 84 RBIs for an OPS of .852. Although he could not play full-time due to an injury, it was a year that showed Noh Si-hwan’s potential. However, he could not continue his upward trend. Last year, he made the most appearances with 115 games, but only had a batting average of 0.281, 6 home runs and 59 RBIs. His batting average rose, but his home runs plummeted. OPS also fell to 0.737.
This season, he is focusing on long hitting again and is training. During the winter, he trained with Lee Dae-ho and lost a lot of weight. I lost 6kg. He went back to his batting form and increased his bat weight.
Like this, Noh Si-hwan, who went to spring camp out of pride, fired a home run in the second practice game. He became the final four.
After the game, Noh Si-hwan looked back on the home run situation through the club’s YouTube, saying, “It was a full count, and it was the timing of the fastball coming in. I was also aiming for a fastball.
He set a goal to improve his slugging, but did not set an exact figure. However, he is greatly reflecting on the fact that he hit less than Jeong Eun-won. “My primary goal is not to get injured,” he said. “Last year’s 6 home runs is an absurd figure. If you go into detail, we are training with a direction for these parts, such as long-hit OPS.”
Lastly, Noh Si-hwan expressed his determination, saying, “I’ve been preparing well since the camp. (In terms of long hits) I’ll hit a home run to give you a sense of coolness. Please look forward to it.”
