In the first half of this season, Hanwha is aiming for a mid-level jump beyond escaping from the bottom by racing to ‘8 consecutive wins’ in 18 먹튀검증 years. There are several reasons why Hanwha was able to rebound. First, there was a stable starting lineup leading to Felix Pena, Ricardo Sanchez, and Moon Dong-ju. In the bullpen, “Pilseungjo” consisting of Kim Bum-soo, Kang Jae-min, and Park Sang-won, along with Lee Tae-yang and Joo Hyun-sang, contributed strength. Noh Si-hwan and Chae Eun-seong took the center stage, and Lee Jin-young, Choi Jae-hoon, and Moon Hyun-bin added an altoran-like performance. On the other hand, there are also eyes that pay attention to the ‘synergy’ created by the 1st and 2nd groups.
The Hanwha 2nd team is currently running for ‘8 consecutive wins’ in the Futures League. Hanwha, which belongs to the Northern League, is also ranked first by 4.5 games from SSG, which is second. Performance in the Futures League is not necessarily proportional to first-team performance. However, in the case of Hanwha, where the existing players were sluggish from the beginning of the opening season, they overcame the crisis by actively using resources that had performed well in the 2nd team for the 1st team. Lee Do-yoon, who was called up to the first team during the season and became the starting shortstop, is a prime example. He was registered as a first-team entry for the first time on May 20 and recorded a decent batting average of 0.246 in 40 games, and showed the most important stable defensive ability as a shortstop without regret.
Infielder Kim Gun is a similar case. Gun Kim is wielding a batting average of 0.381 OPS and 0.945 in 28 Futures League games this season. Hanwha coach Choi Won-ho hired Kim Gun immediately before Kiwoom on the day he registered for the first team on May 30, and he played an active role that day, scoring two hits in four at-bats and scoring a ‘multi-hit’. Coach Choi said, “If a player is called up after receiving a good report from the 2nd team, he will immediately play in the game on the same day. It’s not always successful, but it’s a good stimulus for both the first and second team squads.
Hanwha Futures coach Kim Seong-gap said, “Among the players in the 2nd team, there was a motivation to say, ‘If I do well, I can go up to the 1st team and play the game’.” The atmosphere is so good that I don’t think I’ll lose a Futures League game these days.” After the return of the 1st team players who went through adjustments in the 2nd team, their performance is also excellent. Players who once suffered from sluggishness, such as Joo Hyun-sang and “Strong No. 2” Kim In-hwan, who are showing great success, are showing their original skills in the 1st team after going through the 2nd team.
Manager Kim said, “After each game, we rank the players who showed the best performance by position, such as pitcher, fielder, and catcher.” A call comes in. Even at the beginning of the opening season, there were not many player movements, but coach (Choi) Won-ho and the Futures team are sharing sympathy and creating synergy.”
