Angry with himself, Hanwha’s 1st nomination geopo “Challenging the 1st team RBI king after returning from the army”

“I haven’t shown you anything yet… I am angry too.”

Hanwha infielder Jeong Min-gyu (20) is a geopo prospect who joined Hanwha in the first nomination in 2021. A native of Busan High School, he was called up by Hanwha at a time when the bottom 3 teams were given the 1st national pick. Even though the infield rebuilding was almost complete, Hanwha couldn’t overlook the talent of Jung Min-kyu, who has the qualifications as a long hitter.

He played a total of 15 games, 6 games in 2021 and 9 last year, recording a batting average of 10.2 and 8 Lee (5 hits in 39 at bats). However, he showed steady growth in the 2nd Division Futures League. Last year, he played 81 games, batting 2.5 7 Lee (73 hits in 284 at-bats) with 8 homers and 51 RBI. 1st in RBI in Northern League.

Choi Won-ho, coach of the Hanwha Futures, said, “I can see my skills improving year after year. Certainly, the player nominated for the first round has a reason for that,” he said. “Even with a fast ball, the timing is not late. I tried all positions in the defense and infield, but second base and first base are the best. Pivot action at second base is good. 스포츠토토 If you do well, you can become a giant second baseman like Ahn Chi-hong (Lotte), and if there is no space at second base, you can use it as a first baseman. He was born in 2003, so he is young, and he has great potential for growth in the future.”

In December of last year, he passed the Sangmu Baseball Team. He is scheduled to enlist on May 8th, and is currently training in Seosan as part of the Futures team. His military training is scheduled to take place after the season, and he will start the season at Hanwha and continue the season with Sangmu from May 8th. From the 8th, he will also participate in the Future’s Spring Camp held in Kochi, Japan.

It is a situation where it is difficult to fully concentrate on preparing for the season because it is not possible to play full-time in the first team. However, Jung Min-gyu said, “It’s a little special situation, but baseball is my job. It doesn’t matter if he goes to the army during the season. I want to prepare more properly than last year,” he said. “Actually, I wanted to play for one more year and go to the army, but I think it’s good to be able to play baseball in Sangmu and finish military service quickly.”
