The Samsung-Doosan game of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ took place at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the afternoon of the 23rd.
Doosan head coach Lee Seung-yeop watched the players train on the field and at the batting cage before the game started. After finishing his at-bat at the batting cage, Rojas greeted Lee as he headed to the dugout.
Lee chatted with Rojas for a while, asking him about his condition. Rojas talked to Lee about his batting form and discussed his swing with one leg up.
Lee then knelt down to demonstrate his hitting and gave him advice on his back and knee position. He showed Rojas several times to make sure he understood.
When asked what he talked about with Rojas, Lee smiled and said, “We didn’t talk about anything technical, we just joked around.”
Lee’s one-point lesson paid off. Trailing 4-1 in the bottom of the third inning, Rojas hit a 145-kilometer fastball from Samsung starter Won Tae-in for a two-run double with runners on first and second. Kim Jae-hwan followed with an RBI single, and Song Seung-hwan and Lee Yoo-chan followed with RBI singles to make it 6-4 and set up the big inning.스포츠토토
