The 2010’s were the era of Kang Min-ho and Yang Eui-ji.
From 2011 to 2022, Kang Min-ho won the Golden Glove 5 times and Yang Eui-ji 7 times, dividing the world. No other catcher was allowed to enter.
A 38-year-old veteran catcher with 20 years of experience. Despite their age, they are once again creating the best season.
He is leading the스포츠토토 Samsung batting line with 10 hits in 25 at-bats (0.400), 1 home run and 9 RBIs in the last 6 games.
Kang Min-ho reliably protects the central batting line, which was almost weakened by Lee Won-seok’s transfer to Kiwoom. 30 hits in 93 at-bats (0.323) in 25 games, 4 home runs and 19 RBIs. OPS reaches 90%.
In the match against Hanhwa in Daejeon, where he returned after a week after overcoming thigh pain, he fired a wedge cap in the top of the 9th inning, leading 5-1. 14th Grand Slam of his career. Lee Bum-ho’s career-high 17 home runs came close by three runs. He laughed, saying, “I thought to empty my mind and swing 3 times in the last at-bat, but it turned out to be a rather good result.”
His performance is enough to challenge the 7th Golden Glove in his life. Is there a secret to amazing ‘rejuvenation’?
Kang Min-ho laughed happily, saying, “I think I’ll be back in my place soon.” I go to bat with the idea of connecting or solving problems,” hinting that his dedication to the team is leading to results.
Regarding the 7th Golden Glove challenge, Kang Min-ho waved his hand and said, “I’m not greedy, I’ll do my best. Dong-won is doing so well.” Park Dong-won ran for first place in the home run, firing his 8th gun of the season with a two-run gun in the 8th inning against Kiwoom in Jamsil.
A home run has a big impact, but Kang Min-ho is not a hitter who is far behind in a home run.
The batting average is also extremely high. Commentator Yoon Hee-sang revealed the contents of the conversation with Kang Min-ho during the broadcast and said, “Hey Min-ho, let’s go to the hitting king.” Park Dong-won’s batting average for the season was .261.
Eui-ji Yang, the “best catcher” who moved to Doosan, is still quiet with a batting average of 2.78 and 1 home run and 11 RBIs in 27 games.
