Doosan Bears manager Lee Seung-yeop expressed his opinion on Yang Eui-ji (36)’s ‘non-intentional hitting method’. 

Yang Eui-ji started as catcher 3 in the match against Kiwoom Heroes of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 17th and played an active role with 2 hits, 1 RBI and 1 point in 5 at-bats. Doosan won 9-6 and ran a five-game winning streak. 토토사이트

Yang Eui-ji, who returned to his home team after receiving the best treatment as a free agent after signing a contract with Doosan for a total of 15.2 billion won for 4+2 years this season, has a batting average of 2.8 2 in 34 games (33 hits in 117 at-bats), 4 homers, 20 RBIs, OPS .819. continues to perform. He even hit a home run in three consecutive games before KIA on the 13th and before Kiwoom on the 16th. 

Yang Eui-ji, with an indifferent expression, even with a swing that seemed to have not exerted any effort, passed the ball outside and coined the term ‘non-intentional hitting method’. It is a swing that seems difficult to hit many home runs, but Yang Eui-ji recorded 232 home runs in his career with this batting form. 

Coach Lee Seung-yeop, who recorded 467 home runs in the KBO league during his active career and is ranked first in the most home runs, said in an interview on the 17th about Yang Eui-ji’s careless hitting method, “I will be hitting hard. He can’t hit a home run unless he hits hard. Even if one out of 100 can be skipped, I don’t think a hitter with more than 200 homers in his career can just skip it. Even though I think I hit lightly, I hit really hard. If you just hit it and get over it, you won’t even have to practice,” he said with a laugh. 

Director Lee Seung-yeop, who said, “I don’t think Yang Eui-ji has changed much,” said, “It seems to be the difference between whether the end of the bat spins quickly or remains until the end. Now the bat head remains well. With home runs and long hits, he must have found some peace psychologically. No matter how big a hitter you are, if you don’t get the results you want, you will inevitably shrink. As a senior member of the team, he would have had a sense of responsibility, but at the beginning of the season, he was chased psychologically, but now he seems to have stabilized.”
