On the 22nd (local time), Byeong-wook Lim recorded 3 hits and 1 home run in 7 innings of joint training with the Arizona Diamondbacks, an MLB team, at Salt River Field in Scottsdale, USA.
In particular, he started with a right-handed hit against former KBO leaguer Merrill Kelly, who is currently in charge of Arizona’s second starter, and hit a home run by hitting right-hander Peter Solomon’s inside ball, who came up as Arizona’s third pitcher.
He joined as the first nomination in the 2014 draft and emerged as a new star in the Kiwoom outfield with a batting average of 0.293, 124 hits and 13 homers in 134 appearances in the 2018 season.
However, after that, due to residual injuries, he was unable to participate in many games, leaving a regret. That’s why Kiwoom is also showing a happy expression at Lim Byeong-wook’s performance at this camp.
Lim Byung-wook said, “I had a lot of conversations with hitting coach Kang Byung-shik to prepare for the camp. I tested the things I was practicing in real life, and it didn’t feel bad.” I will do my best to train until the last day of camp.”
It is known that this joint training was concluded when Kiwoom Heroes proposed to the Arizona club.
During 7 innings, both teams alternated offense and defense according to the number of pitches, and practiced in a manner similar to a practice game, including live pitching batting, which is an actual pitching training.
