“I’m a lot more haggard than when I left the country.”
Chae Eun-seong (33), who is making a fresh start with the Hanwha Eagles, returned to Incheon International Airport on the 9th after passionately spending the spring camp.
Chae Eun-seong signed a 6-year free agent contract with Hanwha for a total of 9 billion won in the off-season and moved his team. This was his first spring camp with a team whose field training was changed. He said, “I did well as I prepared. I also adapted well (in the new team).”
“I was very satisfied with the end of the spring camp without injury,” he said. “I thought a lot about each step (before the battery training). The first was to finish the camp without injury and make a good condition. I think it was done well. 1 The first camp (Arizona camp, USA) always tried to practice a lot. The second camp (Okinawa camp, Japan) focused on competitions, so I focused on that, but the results were good, and my physical condition was good, so it seems to be going well.”
Hanwha has recruited Chae Eun-seong and is reorganizing the team’s central batting line. With Chae Eun-seong at the head, they are trying to bring stability to the cleanup trio by utilizing new foreign hitters Brian O’Grady (31) and Roh Si-hwan (23).
Chae Eun-seong also feels the weight and expectations for herself. “(Starting the season) you have to open the lid to know, but it’s camp time, which is still a practice period. Baseball is different from day to day, so I don’t attach much importance to the results. Still, the positive thing is that the players are in good shape. I think I have a lot of expectations because I don’t have it. I haven’t played the season yet, but I’m looking forward to it while camping.”메이저놀이터
The spring camp produced meaningful results. Chae Eun-seong promised to play a steady role in the demonstration game, which is the final tempering ahead of the season, and the regular season after that. “(During the demonstration game) I think I need to maintain good condition without injury rather than checking. Also, since I have to play a lot of games after the opening, I think I have to work hard to do well in the future,” he said.
The reporters asked Chae Eun-seong for a photo for the interview. Then he smiled, saying, “I’m a lot more haggard than when he left.” The spring camp that I spent so passionately. Attention is focusing on whether it will be able to inject new vitality into Hanwha’s lineup.
