“I was confident that the batting line would rebound from May. The team atmosphere is good. I will try to win more in May.”

Roh Si-hwan (23, Hanwha Eagles토토사이트) recorded a batting average of 0.533, 2 home runs, 5 RBIs, and 2 final hits in the first week of May. He mainly started as the 3rd hitter and shared the role of the 4th hitter Chae Eun-seong and the solver. The entire Hanwha batting line rose together with the two players. Thanks to that, the team also made a reversal of 3 wins and 1 loss in the week, including the first 3 wins of the season. Choa Pharma and this magazine selected Noh Si-hwan as the MVP (Most Valuable Player) for the first week of May.

Noh Si-hwan was the top star of the exhibition game last March. He finished with a batting average of 0.471, 5 home runs and a slugging average of 0.971. It was the result of moving the hitting point forward to escape last year’s missing long hit (6 home runs). Park Yong-taek, KBS N Sports commentator, and Jeong Min-cheol, MBC Sports Plus commentator, picked him as the most promising player this season.

In fact, Noh Si-hwan played an active part in April and supported the team’s batting line. The contact was the same as the demonstration game, but the problem was the long hit. He hit just two home runs while posting a .316 batting average. At the time, in an interview with this magazine, he said, “As the season begins, the hitting point comes back without me knowing,” but “I think I can hit a home run if I do what I do without being aware of the long hit (I also get the hitting point back).”

After a month, the long-awaited cannon finally started to explode. He even hit two home runs in one game. Jamsil Baseball Stadium was the stage where it was the most difficult to cross the fence. Hanwha has begun to show the true color of the solver he has been waiting for.

Noh Si-hwan said in an interview with this magazine, “I’m so happy to receive a good award. First of all, the fact that the team’s performance last week was good is the most pleasant.” He said, “At the beginning of the season, I didn’t get a long hit, but I wasn’t very conscious. Last year, when I didn’t get a long hit, I was very stressed. At the end of the season, I changed my batting form and tried to hit a long hit, but it failed.” It doesn’t come out because I make up my mind.’ So, ‘Let’s do what we do without being conscious of it.

He said, “I only focused on doing my best in what I could do at the plate. I focused only on hitting with the same routine and the same thoughts at the plate, and left the results up to the sky. I tried not to stress about uncontrollable results. “he said.

Kim Nam-hyeong, the Hanwha batting coach, is also indispensable for recovering long hits. Noh Si-hwan said, “I modified the hitting point that came back little by little through video analysis with the coach. I’m trying to keep the corrected point well now,” he said. He continued, “The batting line was sluggish, and the people watching must have been frustrated. And the pros must show results unconditionally.” “The coach analyzed and helped each other by caring about each other. I want to prove what I have prepared.”

Hanwha’s run ended on a three-game winning streak with a loss against the Samsung Lions on the 9th. However, on the 10th, in the game against Samsung, Roh Si-hwan’s consecutive home runs (seasons 5 and 6) continued the good atmosphere, and on the 11th and 12th, Noh Si-hwan’s home runs in 3 consecutive games reappeared 3 consecutive victories. Even in the shock of the resignation of manager Carlos Subero, his cannon kept the center of Hanwha.

Noh Si-hwan said, “The captain (Jeong) Woo-ram also said at the team meeting, ‘It is absolutely not okay if the team atmosphere is low. Our hitters didn’t work well, but I was confident that they would rebound from May. The pace is good now. I’ll try to play more fun games and accumulate more wins in May. I’m not only a weekly but also a monthly MVP. I will try to challenge myself so that I can win.”
