“I think it will be a memorable home run in a different way (laughs).”
Kiwoom Heroes Lim Byung-wook looked back on the two-run gun he fired against the Gocheok KIA Tigers on the 15th.
Lim Byung-wook fired a superior two-runner against KIA Yoon Young-cheol at the end of the first inning, when the team was leading 3-0. In the 1B2S match against Yoon Young-cheol, he rolled up a 129 km slider that fell to the right and crossed the fence. 메이저사이트
The home run on this day was Lim Byeong-wook’s first home run in 1658 days. The last time Lim Byeong-wook recorded a home run in the first team stage was the NC game on September 30, 2018. Lim Byung-wook laughed, “Actually, I hit it randomly. I asked for time because the timing kept failing, but it was pitched. I hit it, but I didn’t expect it to go that far. I didn’t even know it had been such a long time since I hit it.”
After his career-high performance in the 2018 season, Lim Byeong-wook went downhill all the way. Due to injuries such as a ruptured cartilage plate in his knee and hamstring, he could not continue his active career. Even after completing his military service in Sangmu, he had to watch the team’s runner-up in the Korean Series without being able to join the first team due to a finger injury.
Lim Byung-wook said, “Actually, it is very difficult for any player when injured. You have to find your senses again and make constant efforts to return to your original form. To be honest, it is very difficult to stand up again.” The most unfortunate thing is that now I have erased the thought of an injury from my mind.
There is no choice but to have a different expectation for the season to fully welcome through a long injury tunnel. However, Lim Byeong-wook promised to play an active role, saying, “There is no goal for shame at all. I just think that I will continue to practice and work hard so that I can live up to the expectations of the team while looking at the coach’s face in good health.”
