Noh Si-hwan, who missed 12 home runs and 25 RBIs, asked for advice from senior Lee Dae-ho, and the conclusion was “Do not change in a hurry, just do what you do”

Noh Si-hwan, the fourth hitter at Gyeongnam High School, was the best infielder in high school baseball in 2018. In the 2nd round of the 2019 rookie draft held in September of that year, the Hanwha Eagles selected him in the first round. He was named third overall after KT Wiz Lee Dae-eun and Samsung Lions Lee Hak-joo.
The ‘future central hitter’ has grown into a real hitter, with 12 home runs and 43 RBIs in 2020. He posted 18 homers and 84 RBIs in 2021.
Last year, when the team was in last place for two consecutive years, Hanwha confirmed Noh Si-hwan’s rapid growth. In his third year as a professional, at the young age of 21, he led the team in home runs and RBI. In the pain of rebuilding, Noh Si-hwan stood out as evidence of hope. He was a definite achievement of the rebuilding.
In the 4th year of the pro, which was highly anticipated, he held the center as the 4th hitter until the beginning and middle of the season. Before the June 9 Doosan Bears, he had a batting average of 2.9 with 6 runs, 3 home runs and 31 RBIs in 56 games. He was good on the chance.
The good flow was interrupted by an injury. He was out of power in early June, and returned with the start of the second half in late July. He appeared in 59 games in the second half, batting 2.6 with 9 runs, 3 home runs and 28 RBI. The season ended with a batting average of .281 (122 hits in 434 at-bats), 6 homers, and 59 RBIs.
12 homers and 25 RBIs were down from last year. As the Hanwha batting line struggled with empty bats, the presence of Noh Si-hwan was more regrettable.
“I modified my batting form during the season. I was very worried because I didn’t hit home runs well. In the process of changing it quickly, I even lost what I had. I went to the worst situation where I couldn’t get a hit. . As a result, the timing was delayed.”
However, he is not mature enough for his age. He knows what role he has to play and what he has to do.
Sluggishness and failure are also valuable experiences for greater growth. “Looking back, I think the sluggishness was good,” he said.
All. I thought I would never make a similar mistake again.” Through trial and error, I gained a valuable realization. It is an ultra-positive mind 메이저놀이터

. Hanwha, which is weak, is especially lacking in long hits.This year, 28-year-old rookie Kim In-hwan hit 16, recording the most homers in the team. Next year, Chae Eun-seong, who was recruited as a free agent (FA), will join the team. “
When Chae Eun-seong was with the LG Twins, I thought he was a good hitter. He seems to have a lot to learn from watching from the side. Since you were on a top-tier team, I want to ask you a lot of good things.”
Next season, Noh Si-hwan will keep what he has. He intends to hit with a long hit in mind.
