Yang Seok-hwan said, “If you look at the juniors on the team, there are a lot of introverted kids. Personally, in order to play baseball well, I have to somehow bring out the E hidden inside,” he smiled.
Yang Seok-hwan is active in ceremonies. The theme of the ceremony for this season was also decided early on. It’s a heart ceremony. When Yang Seok-hwan hits a home run or hits, he makes a heart shape with both hands and shoots at Doosan fans. As more and more hearts pile up, the smiles of Doosan fans inevitably grow.
On April 22nd, Yang Seok-hwan’s heart burst properly in Jamsil KT WIZ match. At the end of the 6th inning with a 2-0 lead, Yang Seok-hwan hit a 127km/h curve on the 3rd pitch of opponent starting pitcher Shulser and hit a large 2-run home run with a distance of 120m. It was Archie who led the league alone in home runs with his 5th gun of the season.
Doosan succeeded in winning three games in a row with a 5-1 win thanks to starter Choi Seung-yong’s first win of the season, with five scoreless innings, and Yang Seok-hwan and Ahn Jae-seok’s home runs. After the game, coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “While the fielders played evenly, Yang Seok-hwan and Ahn Jae-seok’s home runs were decisive. Yang Chan-yeol (three-hit game) was delighted, saying, “Yesterday in the bottom lineup, today I played a perfect score as a top hitter.”
Yang Seok-hwan, who contributed a lot to the team’s victory with his fifth home run of the season, said, “I didn’t have a goal for the curve. A mismatch came in and turned the bat, which led to a good result. I had a miss on the first pitch curve earlier, but it seems to have been connected with the right timing. Although the home run ranking feels good, it doesn’t mean much right now. Wouldn’t it be 144 paces if he hit a home run in his first game? However, the feeling of hitting is not bad now, so I am satisfied with it.”
The heart ceremony was also talked about. Yang Seok-hwan said, “Since this year, when he hits or hits a home run, he is holding a heart ceremony. In the podium interview after the game, Doosan fans joined us. It was so thrilling. He is the heart he sends to his fans, so he asks that they continue to join us. Also, my wife came to the intuition today, and I was happy that she seemed to have shown a great performance. He will continue to show a good sense of hitting in the future,” he said with strength.
