‘I want you to hit me!’ Choi Ji-man, “I can do better if given more opportunities”

Choi Ji-man (Pittsburgh Pirates) ‘protested’ against manager Derek Selton with a home run catch.

Choi Ji-man came out as the designated hitter No. 5 before the Houston Astros on the 11th (Korean time) and hit a solo shot in his first at-bat. It was the first home run of the season.

In particular, it was meaningful because it was a home run from left-handed pitcher Valdez. When a left-handed pitcher came to the mound, Choi Ji-man could hardly step into the plate. 카지노사이트

After the game, Choi Ji-man said, “The reason I’m weak against left-handed pitchers is because I haven’t been given a chance to face left-handed pitchers.”

It is the first time since 2020 that Choi Ji-man hit a home run against a left-handed pitcher.

At that time, Choi Ji-man stepped into the right at-bat to face a left-handed pitcher and hit a home run.

Coach Selton said, “Since Cruz is out due to an injury, left-handed batters will often be at bat against left-handed pitchers,” adding, “I will give Choi Ji-man a chance.”

Choi Ji-man lost the first baseman spot to Carlos Santana this season and is giving up the designated hitter spot to Andrew McCutchen.

He has to hit well when given the chance to regain his place.

Attention is focusing on whether Choi Ji-man, who tasted his first home run of the season, will regain his old sense of hitting.
