Why Heo Do-hwan, not Park Dong-won, wore the starting catcher’s mask “for a second look”

LG sends out the Choi Won-tae-Heo Do-hwan battery once again.

LG will play the SSG Landers of the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League on April 18 at SSG Landers 카지노사이트 Field in Incheon.

LG managed just one run in 6⅔ innings against Baek Jung-hyun the previous day (17). Austin’s solo home run in the seventh inning was the only run they scored against Baek. She had six hits, but none of them turned into runs. LG‘s Casey Kelly, on the other hand, was silenced by the batting order after giving up four runs (two earned) on 10 hits and one walk in six innings.

With the loss, LG moves to Incheon with a losing record.

Before the game, the starting lineup was revealed. Hong Chang-ki (right fielder), Shin Min-jae (second baseman), Kim Hyun-soo (designated hitter), Austin Dean (first baseman), Moon Bo-kyung (third baseman), Lee Jae-won (left fielder), Jung Ju-hyun (shortstop), Heo Do-hwan (catcher), and Park Hae-min (center fielder). The starting pitcher is Choi Won-tae.

The catcher’s mask will be worn by Heo Do-hwan, not Park Dong-won.

Manager Yeom Kyung-yup said, “Park Dong-won is resting. “It looks like (Heo) Do-hwan and (Park) Dong-won have the same sitting posture, but they are completely different. Do-hwan’s posture is much lower. ”I decided to send out Heo Do-hwan first because (Choi) Won-tae’s pitches have a higher chance of being good if they are low. We’re going to take another look at him.”

This is not the first time the Choi Won-tae-Heo Do-hwan battery has worked. They formed a battery against Doosan on March 30. It was Choi’s first start in an LG uniform, and Heo Do-hwan started at catcher and batted seventh and combined for six scoreless innings. Choi Won-tae was the winning pitcher.

The shortstop also stands out. Jeong Ju-hyun will start. Oh Ji-hwan is not feeling well in his thigh. He’s been out of the starting lineup for four games in a row. They’re going to take care of it.

Coach Yeom said, “I’m going to manage Oh Ji-hwan until this week. I don’t use him as much as possible. There is a gap in the defense. (Kim) Min-sung-yi has a narrow range from side to side. Jeong Ju-hyun has a wide range from side to side.”
