Kim In-sik “Aluminum bat? What’s the use? The content needs to be changed”

What’s the use of replacing the bat?”

The 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) Korean baseball team left an unfortunate report card of being eliminated in the first round for three consecutive times. 

Many baseball players are looking for a solution, and the most publicized and talked about is the reintroduction of aluminum bats in high school baseball.

Currently, high school players use wooden bats. 

Because wooden bats have a difference in repulsive force compared to aluminum, some point out that the cause of hitters’ slow hitting power and poor pitching is because of wooden bats.

On the afternoon of the 21st, former national coach Kim In-sik expressed the opposite position in a phone call with this reporter, saying, “The aluminum bat and the solution have nothing to do with it. Is there any guarantee that good results will come out by changing the bat?”

Kang Baek-ho (KT), Lee Jae-won (LG), Noh Si-hwan (Hanwha), and Han Dong-hee (Lotte), the young long hitters representing each club, are players who have achieved sufficient growth with wooden bats rather than aluminum bats.

Rather, former coach Kim thinks that the wooden bat is a problem and that the leaders are covering up their lack of leadership.

Former coach Kim said, “The real problem is our country’s training method.”

He also pointed out, “Japanese players have smaller physical conditions than Korean players. Even so, they throw fastballs and show excellent control.

“For example, in the case of a pitcher, you need to focus on ball practice through lower body-centered exercises and a lot of pitching practice. However, in Korean baseball, even if a player seems to be lacking, they just ignore it. This is what caused the current crisis,” he said. I regretted it.

Replacing an aluminum bat might also make sense. However, the crisis of Korean baseball should not be swayed by a single bat.

In the end, the fundamental problem is solved only when the training method, that is, the contents of the training given by the coach to the players, is changed.

Lastly, former coach Kim said,메이저사이트 “The most important thing is how to move forward. We must keep in mind that only when the right way by the leaders comes out, the players can change, and this can lead to the development of Korean baseball.”
