Oh Tae-gon departed for the United States through Incheon International Airport on the 25th. He plans to leave the country about 5 days before the main camp and build up his body early. 메이저놀이터
His individual performance was not good, with a batting average of 0.232, 4 home runs and 23 RBIs in 130 games his last season. He came out as a backup, not a regular.
However, he tasted joy by playing a role essential to the team, such as holding the first base position the moment SSG confirmed the Korean Series championship and catching the last out count.
After the season, Oh Tae-gon obtained FA qualification, and spent a warm winter while staying at SSG for a total of 1.8 billion won for 4 years.
And after his free agent contract, the right spring camp came.
Oh Tae-gon said, “I really wanted to stay on the team, but I’m grateful that the club set me up on good terms. Also, as much as you cared about me, I’ll take the lead even when I go to camp. “He promised.
Is there any burden? Oh Tae-gon said, “I always have the idea that I have to do well. But I can’t overdo it. People say, ‘If you change, people die’, don’t you? I’m trying to do what I’m used to.”
In this camp, we plan to focus on the batting side.
Oh Tae-gon said, “Director Kim Won-hyung acknowledged it on the defense side. This time, I plan to focus on the batting side.” .So I said, ‘I’m fighting every year’. In fact, I lost the competition, “he smiled.
Ahead of this season, SSG signed Guillermo Heredia. He is an outfielder with major league and World Series experience. Oh Tae-gon took himself as the commander of the Heredia military discipline.
He plans to compete with Jeon Eui-san and Choi Joo-hwan at first base.
He said, “The mercenary will be given a handicap first. I hope Heredia does well. I have to compete whether it’s first base or outfield. The team needs to compete to create a synergy effect. That’s why I try to make Heredia nervous.”
Oh Tae-gon said, “In the past, I always wanted to be a starting player, but now I don’t. Now, it’s good if I can only play games. As for the defense, I’m satisfied with that if I can help the team. I’ll try my best to play my role this year as well.”
