After twists and turns, he renewed his contract with the FA last train. There was no call to the first team for a month after the opening. Hee-dong Kwon (33), NC, proved the value of his existence with his skills.
Kwon Hee-dong came up to the first team on the 4th. As his rain cancellation continued, he played his first game in the first team this season only before Suwon KT on the 9th. The results were unbelievably good. During the three-game series on the 9th and 11th, Kwon Hee-dong went 5 hits in 12 at-bats and picked out 4 walks. The team also scored 28 points in three days, including 16 points on the first day. Even considering the fact that the opponent was KT, who was not in normal power due to a series of injuries to key players, he showed off a hot attack power like never before. With Kwon Hee-dong and Jason Martin as the center hitters, it is evaluated that the weight of the batting line has become stronger.
Kwon Hee-dong said, ahead of the토토사이트 KT game on the 11th, “I returned and played two games, and I won them all. “I feel better because the team seems to be on the right track,” he said.
Kwon Hee-dong played 16 games in the Futures League before being called up to the first team. He was most burdened with not being able to go out for a while at night games. However, Kwon Hee-dong got off to a good start in the first game on the 9th, getting a walk after a 9-pitch game with opponent starter Wes Benjamin from the first at-bat. On this day, Kwon Hee-dong had one hit and three walks. Kwon Hee-dong is a hitter with good eyes enough to maintain an on-base percentage to 10% throughout his career.
Even in the second game of his return, Kwon Hee-dong contributed greatly to the team’s victory. In the top of the eighth inning, when he was trailing 4-7, he came out as the lead batter and also walked. Starting with Kwon Hee-dong’s on-base run, NC scored 3 runs in 1 inning and immediately tied the score, and won a come-from-behind victory with Martin’s final sacrifice fly in the 9th inning.
Kwon Hee-dong said, “I thought that if I could pick out the worst balls as much as possible and connect them, the chances of scoring would be higher.” Because I thought, I tried to give up my greed as much as possible and do what I could.”
Kwon Hee-dong applied for free agency after last season, but was not called anywhere. He caused controversy in the middle of the 2021 season for violating the Corona 19 quarantine rules, and returned last season, but only had a batting average of 0.223. He suffered the worst slump of the season facing free agency, and his blow was great. Only last February, he re-signed with NC for up to 125 million won per year. As his contract was delayed, he was unable to participate in finish camp and spring training and built his body alone. He tried to develop a sense of play in the Futures League, but it took time.
Kwon Hee-dong said, “If I had pushed myself too hard in line with the opening of the first team, it could have been overpaced, but the coaching staff and training part of the Futures handled it well.”
Kwon Hee-dong said, “The contract was late, but I prepared harder as it was late.”
