‘3G continuous fighting’ LG super rookie does not know satisfaction “If you compare it with the TOP level…” 

 LG Twins super rookie Park Myeong-geun (19) is making a soft landing on the professional stage under the clear plan of director Yeom Kyung-yeop (55) of ‘Yeomgalyang’.

Park Myeong-geun, who graduated from Raongo, joined LG with the 27th overall in the 3rd round of the 2023 rookie draft. His height is 174 cm, which is not tall for a player, but he is a right-handed sidearm with a heavy fastball that can reach a maximum speed of 153 km/h and vertical movement.

Having been well-received since the American spring camp, 메이저놀이터he entered the opening roster and appeared before the opening match. His first 2 matches with the KT Wiz were rough. In his debut game, he took the mound with 1 out and bases loaded in the bottom of the 6th inning when LG trailed 1-4. However, he conceded 3 runs without getting a single out count. On the 2nd, KT also came down without finishing the inning as an error came out.

The uneven finish for two consecutive games naturally led to the third appearance against Gocheok Kiwoom on the 4th. This was Director Yeom’s policy, not wanting to leave the rookie with a long memory of failure.

Jeon Yeom, head coach of the game on the 5th, said, “Young players grow only when they experience success step by step. I tried to raise it to the next level, but there was trial and error due to the errors of the fielders.” He continued, “It was a match that (Park) Myeong-geun didn’t have to go out on that day (against Suwon KT on the 2nd) as well (Gocheok Kiwoom match on the 4th). I was sent out to experience it,” he explained.

As expected, Park Myeong-geun completely forgot the previous two failures in the third appearance. Park Myeong-geun, who took the mound in the bottom of the 8th inning with LG leading 7-1, made his first scoreless inning. The face of the rookie I met the next day (5th) was full of smiles.

Park Myung-geun explained the situation at the time, saying, “It was an unscheduled appearance. The coach said, ‘The score difference has widened a lot, and it would be nice to throw it once because I have been in tight situations in the meantime.'” “In the previous two games, I think I was nervous without knowing it, so I was greedy to throw well and I couldn’t throw my ball. But this time, I think I threw my ball, so I think it ended well,” he smiled.

The highlight of this game was the scene where Lee Byeong-gyu was struck out on three pitches. Park Myung-geun induced a series of misses with his changeup and fastball, his main weapon. Still, he was not satisfied.

Park Myung-keun said, “I played my first scoreless game, but I felt that there were still many things to improve. The ball did not completely belong to me, and compared to other top-class players, I still lacked absurdly, so I think I need to work a little harder.”

In the future, we will be able to continue to see the development of Rookie. Coach Yeom plans to adjust pitches according to the score difference. For example, he comes out with a 5-point lead, and if he succeeds 2 or 3 times, he comes out with a 3-point lead, and so on. If he makes a mistake on the 3-point lead, he starts again on the 5-point lead. Manager Yeom said, “If we repeat the first season like that, another winning group is formed and the depth naturally becomes stronger. Also, I think we can achieve the results we want only when we are stronger in the second half of the season. So, in the beginning, we failed and the team Even if we lose, we will boldly try to use younger players.”

Hearing this, Rookie once again took hold of his heart. Park Myung-geun expressed his determination, “The coach gives me so many opportunities, and when he gives me a chance, I want to do better and show my face for a long time in the first team.”
