LG Twins Song Chan-eui, who showed potential as the home run king in the demonstration game, is gradually upgrading his batting ability with a .400 hit in the Australian league. Will he be able to follow the success story of Hong Chang-ki, who accumulated good experience in the past Australian league and took off as an outfielder for LG?

Song Chan-eui, who is playing in the Australian League for Geelong Korea, hit a home run from the opening match held in mid-November, and hit home runs in three consecutive games. In the subsequent 16 games, he added only one home run, but instead, his contact ability improved and his high batting average was steadily maintained. He must have gained confidence in the sophistication of his hitting, which was lacking in last year’s KBO League.

Due to his performance in the demonstration game, he was included in the lineup for the opening game, but felt the wall in the first team. He showed his lack of experience against pitchers in the regular season, not in exhibition games. In 33 games last year, he had a batting average of 2.3 6 Lee (17 hits in 72 at-bats), 3 home runs, 10 RBIs, and an OPS of .699.

Geelong Korea recorded 11 wins and 29 losses at the time, and Hong Chang-ki stood out the most among the batters. Hong Chang-ki played an active role in 37 games with a batting average of 30 3 (41 hits in 123 at-bats), 3 home runs, 21 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.960. .
