Sixth-year NC Dinos outfielder Kim Bum-joon (24) has been hitting well this year. He’s gained a lot of confidence.

In his sixth year as a professional, he has realized something. He has created his own routine and talked a lot with his seniors to make more use of his strengths.

During the off-season, I got in good shape. I’m more confident at the plate because I’m hitting well. I hit aggressively. He doesn’t hesitate when it comes to his swing and battling the opposing pitcher.

“I worked hard during the offseason (focusing on flexibility) and I think my body is in good shape,” Kim reflected.

In 20 games in the Futures League this year, Kim is batting 3-for-21 (66 at-bats) with five home runs, 16 RBIs, a .636 slugging percentage and a .408 on-base percentage. 안전놀이터 His batting average is second only to Ahn Jung-yeol (.360, 15 games) among players who have played at least 15 games.

Personally, I’m feeling the best I’ve felt this year. He’s also hitting the long ball. The most home runs in a season in the second team was nine. This year, he’s on pace to hit 10 or more.

In his last 10 games, he’s batting .440.

He’s feeling better at the plate. “I thought I was lacking in timing while playing last year, so I had a lot of conversations with my hitting coach (Cho Young-hoon),” he said. “We discussed how to hit at a good time against the pitcher, and I analyzed myself, and by bringing the timing of my late at-bats forward, I was able to hit stronger balls and have a higher percentage of long balls than before.”

“As things improved, so did my confidence, and I think that all of these things came together, which is why my hitting has improved recently,” Kim said.

In his sixth year, he has a well-developed routine. “Nowadays, when I get to work in the morning, I warm up in the indoor practice area before the workout, and then I go through a batting routine using a tee before I start training. I think I’m more focused on the game because I’m relaxing and preparing with my personal routine before the game,” said Kim.

The first team has a wall of seniors, including Son Asub, Park Gun-woo, 온라인카지노사이트 and Kwon Hee-dong. He has yet to step onto the first team stage, but this year, he’s getting his chance. He is one of the top candidates to make the first team.

“I don’t think I have any hesitation at the plate. I always try to swing confidently in every at-bat. I try to win the game against the pitcher any way I can, so I get a lot of long hits. There are also some lucky hits. I will always be confident and dignified at the plate,” he said.
