“Thanks to Ryu Ji-hyeok, the atmosphere in the beast part has improved.”
Ryu Ji-hyeok (29) faced a big change this year. The team moved to the Samsung Lions. Ryu Ji-hyeok, a graduate of Chungam High School, started his professional career with Doosan Bears in 2012, was traded to the KIA Tigers, and then traded again to Samsung this season. He changed affiliation twice without transferring to free agency.먹튀검증
The perception of his trade has changed a lot. In the past, there was a perception that he was abandoned by his original team, but not now. It has changed to the perception that there are many teams that need the player. The same goes for Ryu Ji-hyeok. Samsung, which wanted to reinforce the infield, was in dire need of recruiting Ryu Ji-hyeok, and took the ‘infield utility’ Ryu Ji-hyuk into their arms while risking the blood loss of former national team catcher Kim Tae-gun.
Wearing Samsung’s blue uniform, Ryu Ji-hyeok became a completely different player. After the transfer, he posted 2 homers, 19 RBIs and 13 stolen bases in 36 games, and led the Samsung batting line with a batting average of 0.283 (36 hits in 127 at-bats) and an on-base percentage of 0.336. In particular, he leads Samsung’s attack by making a precious one-shot during active base play and clutch situations.
This is Ryu Ji-hyeok, who continues to play an active role not only on the ground but also in the dugout. He takes care of Samsung’s young players and leads the team atmosphere. He is actively helping captain Ja-wook Koo. It also serves as a bridge between veteran players over their mid-30s and young players.
Ryu Ji-hyeok, who is also active in the command tower, is only admirable. Director Park Jin-man smiled, saying, “It seems that the trade has become a turning point for Ryu Ji-hyeok” at a meeting with reporters while the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League kt Wiz match scheduled to be held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 30th was canceled.
Manager Park Jin-man was pleased with Ryu Ji-hyeok’s performance, saying, “Actually, I have never been traded. I only moved to free agency. I wonder if there will be a mental change when the team is transferred through a trade. Those things seem to have had a positive effect.”
“Ryu Ji-hyeok is playing a good middle role in the squad. Thanks to that, the field atmosphere is getting better. It’s actually difficult for senior players to talk to younger players. It’s like that when there’s a big age difference. Ryu Ji-hyuk is just in the middle. I play a middle role with Koo Ja-wook,” he praised Ryu Ji-hyeok, who is demonstrating leadership in Dugout.
Samsung’s performance since July 5, when Ryu Ji-hyeok was traded, is also good. He recorded 20 wins, 1 draw and 15 losses in 36 matches. Looking at this period alone, Samsung was ranked 4th. It was possible because Ryu Ji-hyeok was active.
