“He’s not supposed to be like this, he’s supposed to be better,” said the team’s senior. It can’t get any worse than this, and the story of Ha Jae-hoon’s career has been slowed by injury.
SSG Landers’ Ha Jae-hoon is on the path to becoming a ‘baseball genius’. From a young age, it was hard to choose between pitching and hitting. When he returned to South Korea after a stint in the Major Leagues, he was encouraged by his club to switch to pitching, and in his first year, in 2019, he won the saves title.
Injuries forced him to give up pitching again, and it was only last year that he made the switch back to batting in earnest. Last year, his first season, was a transition year. It was a transitional year for Ha, who said, “My feelings didn’t come up as fast as I thought they would.” As soon as the team clinched the Korean Series title, he jumped on a plane to Australia, skipped all of his breaks to play for Geelong Korea and focus on getting his batting touch back, and his departure for spring training came quickly. He was so eager to get back into the swing of things that he put off spending time with his family.
At this year’s camp, along with Choo Shin-soo, he was the first to start working out at dawn. He was so diligent and diligent that even the club officials couldn’t help but be impressed. He worked hard every day with the coaching staff to improve his defence, which was considered a weakness.
However, just as the camp was about to end, he suffered an injury. In a practice game at the end of the second spring camp in Okinawa, Japan, he fractured his shoulder while sliding into the outfield. It was unbelievable. All the sweat of the winter was for naught. A broken shoulder means you can’t use your upper body properly until it’s healed, so all your hard work was effectively wasted. Everyone felt sorry for him, and he was unable to make the opening roster, 메이저사이트 and time passed.
After recovering from his shoulder injury, Ha got his feet wet in the Futures League and received his long-awaited call-up to the first team on 25 May. It went well from the start. In his first at-bat back, he came in as a pinch-hitter and got a hit, and he hasn’t looked back. Ha, who was batting 3-for-44 with the first team until the 11th, was hampered by injury again.
