Hanwha Eagles infielder Hyun-bin Moon, 19, has played the most games among rookies this season.
Selected with the 11th pick in the second round of last year’s rookie draft, Moon impressed in training camp and exhibition games last winter and was named to the opening roster.
He hasn’t missed a game since, and through nine days, he has appeared in 110 games, batting .255 (87-for-341) with 34 RBIs and 36 runs scored.
Much of the credit for Moon’s successful debut season goes to his mature mentality.
“When players his age make mistakes, they are busy making excuses and blaming others, but Moon humbly accepts his mistakes and tries to learn from them,” former manager Carlos Subero said, adding, 카지노사이트 “He is very mature, unlike the current generation.”
Even in a doubleheader that required a high level of concentration, Moon showed his true colors.
On September 9, Moon started the doubleheader against the Kiwoom Heroes at first base and went 2-for-5 in the first and second games.
In the first inning of game one, he hit a leadoff triple, and in the top of the second inning, he hit a timely double to drive in a run for a 1-0 lead.
Hanwha went on to win game one 11-2 and game two 3-1.
After the game, Moon Hyun-bin said, “I was exhausted after nine innings, but it was hard to concentrate for 18 innings.” “Once again, I realized that being a professional requires a lot of physical strength,” he added.
“In high school, I thought technique was important because I played one or two games a week and took a month off after a tournament, but in the pros, I realize that mental and physical strength are more important,” he said.
This means that he compensated for his lack of physical strength with his strong mental strength.
When asked if he had a mature personality, Moon mentioned ‘reading’.
“I used to get very excited when baseball didn’t go well and couldn’t control my emotions, but I think I’ve calmed down a lot by reading books,” he said, adding, “I try to read books on my smartphone.”
As for his goal for the rest of the season, he said, “I want to be in the first team until I play 144 games.” 슬롯
