“Yesterday, I swung at the same ball. I was preparing for it because it was my favorite course. I missed a lot of my favorite ball in the front at-bat, so I tried to take it (swing) sure, but there was a good result.”

Yang Seok-hwan, who met with reporters after the game, said, “I created the best situation I wanted the most. I needed at least a hit to reverse the atmosphere (in the 7th inning), but I think the atmosphere turned around with a better result. I feel good.” .
On this day, Yang Seok-hwan made a home run with a 144.9 km/h fastball thrown into the high strike zone by LG Kim Jin-seong. If it was a little higher, it would have been a high-fastball that would have led to a miss, but it couldn’t, so it fit perfectly into Yang Seok-hwan’s favorite course and allowed a three-run home run.
Yang Seok-hwan explained, “I swung at the same ball yesterday. I was preparing because it was my favorite course. I missed a lot of my favorite ball in the front at-bat, so I tried to make sure (swing), but there was a good result.” The previous day, he also faced Kim Jin-seong in the 7th inning, and he also faced a 143km/h fastball, but withdrew due to a strikeout on a swing.
Yang Seok-hwan said, “Anyway, today’s game was a situation where the atmosphere was pushed by a home run. I thought it would be nice for us to hit a big one, but a good opportunity came to me. I tried to take my swing, but I think that was a bit lucky.” I saw. He said, “Looking at the forkball thrown by the opponent (Kim Jin-seong), the situation was two strikes, and I thought that I would not hit anything that came low, and I would have to pay a foul for something that came high. I thought I would do it. It seems that the number of goals has been met.”
Yang Seok-hwan, who hit the 4th gun of the season with this game, surpassed Min-ho Kang (Samsung Lions), Baek-ho Kang (KT Wiz), Dong-yeop Kim (Samsung), and Dong-won Park (LG) to rank first in home runs alone.

It’s still too early, so I’ll have to capture a lot of leaderboards when I’m at first place.” Let’s start. If we work hard in each game, how much performance will we get?”
On the other hand, on this day, Yang Seok-hwan took out a ceremony in which he drew a heart with his hand while hitting a home run. When he asked Yang Seok-hwan, he said, “First, it’s a ceremony for my family, and second, it’s for the fans.” “It’s good to do a team ceremony, but young players tend to be shy. Being outgoing will help you play baseball well, but (joining them) doesn’t work well,” he said. ” he laughed.
