Regarding the recent rise in Socrates’ batting, KIA coach Kim Jong-guk said, “I’m confidently turning any ball that comes. It seems that the results of May last year (batting average 0.415) are coming out in June this year. He said, “I think I gained a lot of confidence because I hit well.”
Coach Kim continued, “(Socrates) is not easily fooled by breaking balls and is adapting well to left-handed pitchers. I hope that he will continue to play without getting hurt until the end of the season. is,” he said.
In July last year, Socrates, who was hit by a blow, suffered a fractured nose after being hit in the face by a ball while at bat. Socrates, who boasted a batting average of 0.332 and a high sense of hitting, could not play for a month, and KIA felt the void keenly.
Coach Kim, who recalled the vacancy of Socrates last year, said, “The team was good overall, but the performance was not good for a month due to the absence of Socrates, the center hitter. Even if a player returns, there may be trauma. It took a long time for the players to recover.” You have to take good care of yourself so you don’t get injured.”
