Samsung outfielder Kang Jun-seo also showed off his presence by performing impressively in the ‘strongest baseball’.
With a career batting average of 306.05 (57 hits in 156 bats), 2 homers, 30 RBIs, 47 points, 18 stolen bases, and an OPS of 0.977, Kang Joon-seo threatened the strongest Monsters members with accurate hits and quick feet as Dong-Eui University’s leadoff.
Receiving Samsung’s 2nd 5th round nomination, he expanded his defense range to the infield as well as the outfield after joining his pro team. Kang Jun-seo, who is participating in the Futures Camp in Okinawa, Japan, plans to join the first team ahead of the practice match against Chunichi Dragons on the 11th.
Samsung is the only one out of 10 clubs to set up a spring camp in the same area as the first team and the future team. Akama Ballpark, used by the first team, and Ishikawa Stadium, the future steam camp, are only 30 minutes away by car.
Head coach Park Jin-man announced that he would go back and forth between the first team and the futures camp ahead of the spring camp to monitor the players’ condition. Among the new players participating in the futures camp, if there is a person who stands out, he plans to join the first team camp.
Infielder Kim Jae-sang, a former youth representative, was the first among new players to be called up to the first team, and Kang Jun-seo also got a chance to get noticed by the first team coaching staff.
Meanwhile, Samsung will pitch Won Tae-in as the starting pitcher in the practice match against Chunichi held at Akama Ball Park that day.
