In the first half of professional baseball, which is flowing towards the end, Hanwha and KIA, which are on the rise, are shaking the middle-ranking game.
The keyword that penetrates both teams is the great performance of the main catchers, who are the masters of the home.
Reporter Kim Han-joon reports.

Hanwha Choi Jae-hoon hits the left pole by hitting the falling curve.

It was a home run that brought victory early in the game.

Choi Jae-hoon’s trademark is a pioneering ball that boasts the highest level in the league, but recently, the water has risen to the sense of hitting.

In July alone, he led the team with a batting average of 0.550 and two final hits.

– “I thought a lot about harassing the pitcher a lot. I focused on every pitch I threw, and I think my batting improved because I started from within the pitch.”

The role of the master of the house is also 100% fulfilled.

The game management that leads the pitcher is basic, and the runners who try to steal the base are sniping close to 40% of the base, significantly reducing the burden on the pitcher.

It was catcher Kim Tae-gun who revitalized KIA, which was in a slump.

KIA has been on a 5-game winning streak since the day they traded Kim Tae-gun from Samsung.

Kim Tae-gun gives pitchers a sense of stability with his perfect catch, while also giving weight to the KIA’s catcher batting order, which had the lowest offensive power.

Housewives, who are a guarantee of victory, say that baseball is not a pitcher game, but a catcher game.
