‘1R nomination → 6 home runs in the first year’ Geopo prospect, first home run explosion in practice game “I got better in fighting and mentality”

 Kiwoom Heroes giant prospect Park Chan-hyeok (20) hit his first home run in a practice game.

Park Chan-hyeok started as left fielder 5 times in a practice game against the Taigang Hawks held at Taigang Baseball Stadium in Taiwan on the 3rd, and played an active role with 3 hits, 1 home run, 3 RBIs and 1 run in 5 at-bats. Kiwoom won 6-5 thanks to Park Chan-hyuk’s performance.

Park Chan-hyuk, who joined Kiwoom in the 2nd 1st round (6th pick) of the 2022 rookie draft, finished his debut season with a batting average of .201 (34 hits in 161 at-bats), 6 homers, 17 RBIs, and an OPS of .628 in 52 games. He raised expectations by hitting 5 home runs in April alone, but it was regrettable that he only hit 1 home run as injuries and sluggishness overlapped afterwards.

Park Chan-hyeok, who is preparing for the second year season at the Kaohsiung Camp in Taiwan, is showing off his long hitting power in practice games and showing off his growth. In his game that day, he hit his first home run in his practice game and scored a point.안전놀이터

In an interview after the game, Park Chan-hyeok said, “I tried to hit line drives from practice, so the number of hits increased, so it seems that good hits came out even during the game. During the camp, coach Kim Tae-wan took care of the smallest things. So he seems to have developed in many areas, such as number fights and mentality at the plate.”

Last season, Park struggled with contact and struck out a lot. His strikeout rate per plate appearance reached 38.3%. Park Chan-hyeok, who acknowledged what he lacked last season, said, “Last year, I had a lot of strikeouts and misses compared to bats, but I felt that much, too.” I want to show a good image in Korea without getting hurt for the rest of the period.”
