There are good times and bad times, but there are almost no ‘up and downs’ in the ability to perform operations.

Seo Geon-chang, who struggled with the feeling of hitting at the beginning of the season, performed brilliantly in the first Jamsil rivalry match this season, proving that he is a suitable player for the ever-changing ‘baseball coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop’.

In the home game against the professional baseball Doosan Bears held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 14th, in the bottom of the 4th inning with a lead of 3-1, Seo Geon-chang attempted a fake bunt and slash that turned into a strong ball after taking a bunt stance at 1st and 2nd base.

Seo Geon-chang, who picked the ball well for the first pitch in the bunt stance, struck with a strong attack stance when the ball entered the strike zone on the second pitch.

After hitting the ground once, the ball bounced up and passed Doosan first baseman Yang Seok-hwan, who was defending forward.

Doosan second baseman Lee Yu-chan, who was running to cover first base, blocked the ball, but could not catch Seo Geon-chang.

Second base runner Min-seong Kim took advantage of Yu-chan Lee’s fumble and went around third base to reach home.

Seo Kun-chang succeeded in a fake bunt and slash, adding 1 point and continuing the opportunity, and LG ran away to 7-1 with Kim Hyun-soo’s 3 RBIs and doubles. It was the moment when LG was sure of victory. In fact, LG won 13-4.

Seo Geon-chang, who we met after the game, said, “This strategy has been prepared since spring camp. Our team carries out various strategies. We must be ready for any signs from the dugout.” ” he recalled.

Seo Geon-chang held the bat in an unusual position in the 4th inning and laughed, saying, “That’s a trade secret. I can’t tell you.”

He added, “I didn’t expect senior Kim Min-seong (who is somewhat slow) to come home from second base, but that’s the baseball we’re playing this year. I wouldn’t be surprised if anyone runs.”

In fact, LG is running diligently enough to steal 37 times in 12 games this year. In the match against Doosan, he did not attempt to steal, but when a hit came out, the movement to go one more base was often caught.

From 2013 to 2016, coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop and Seo Geon-chang played together as both a manager and a player for Kiwoom Heroes.

2014, when Seo Kun-chang became the first player in the KBO League to reach 200 hits (201) and became the MVP of the regular season, has been the ‘heyday’ of coach Yeom and Seo Gun-chang so far. That year, Kiwoom advanced to the Korean Series.

Seo Kun-chang was traded to LG in 2021, and director Yeom Gyeong-yeop took office as the LG command tower in October of last year.

After moving to LG, Seo Geon-chang, who fell into sluggishness, gave up the free agent (FA) qualification obtained after the end of the 2021 and 2022 seasons one after another.

A reunion with Director Yeom can be a driving force for Seo Geon-chang to take off again.

Seo Kun-chang said, “The baseball the coach pursues is similar to what it was in the days of Heroes. I am trying to prepare more than 100% to carry out 100% of what the coach orders.”

Seo Geon-chang, who posted a batting average of 0.362 during the demonstration game, slowed down a bit after the start of the regular season. However, against Doosan that day, he played an active role with 2 hits and 1 RBI in 4 at bats, and his batting average for the season rose from 0.186 to 0.213.

Seo Kun-chang said, “The season is long. I can’t say that the feeling of hitting has come up yet. I will look at the season for a long time and do my best in batting training.” “he said.

Although he has not lived for a long time at LG, Seo Kun-chang knows the ‘meaning of the Jamsil Rivalry’ well.

Seo Kun-chang said, “I don’t have to say it, but when I look ahead to the Doosan game, I feel a different atmosphere. I feel the pressure.”
