SSG Landers ‘All-around Man’ Oh Tae-gon also lived up to the expectations of the coaching staff.
SSG drew 5-5 in an exhibition match against KT Wiz held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 25th. Victory was blown away when we couldn’t keep the lead in the 8th inning, but it was a good day for Oh Tae-gon’s performance.
SSG gave up two runs in the bottom of the first inning. Jeong Choi’s sacrifice fly in the 3rd inning and Joo-Hwan Choi’s solo shot tied the game 2-2 in the 4th inning. In the 5th inning, after an infield hit by Hanyu Island, the opponent’s error led to a 3-2 comeback.
At the end of the 5th inning, the score was tied 3-3, but in the top of the 7th inning, the opponent’s bullpen was out of control and they took the lead again. In the top of the 8th, Oh Tae-gon hit a solo home run.
Oh Tae-gon was substituted in for right fielder Choo Shin-soo when he went on defense in the bottom of the 6th inning. When center fielder Choi Ji-hoon was replaced with Choi Sang-min, Oh Tae-gon went to center field.
Oh Tae-gon is capable of playing first base and can also play left field, right field and even center field. SSG is in a situation where the existence of Oh Tae-gon, who is a ‘all-around beauty’, is a good thing.
Ha Jae-hoon, who competed in the outfield during the camp, left due to injury, and Kim Gyu-nam went to Ganghwa Island. It was possible because of Oh Tae-gon that the decision to send Kim Kyu-nam, who was expecting batting talent, to Ganghwa-do was made.
It is possible to defend infield and outfield, and there is even a shot at the plate. He is a player who quietly does what he has to do even though he doesn’t have many chances.
Although his batting average in exhibition games is still 2.5, he has 3 home runs. He is showing impact even in situations where it is difficult to get a sense of hitting. He is not the type to compete with long hits, but he also has the ability to solve chances.메이저놀이터
