Infielder → Outfielder, why did coach Choi Won-ho change the position of a 19-year-old rookie in one day?

 Choi Won-ho, the new Hanwha coach, decided to send rookie Moon Hyun-bin to work both inside and outside the field. Changed plans in one day.  

Prior to the game against LG at Jamsil Stadium on the 19th, coach Choi Won-ho said, “I think we should talk about Moon Hyun-bin first.”

On this day, Hanwha will start the lineup with Jeong Eun-won (2nd baseman) Noh Si-hwan (3rd baseman) Chae Eun-seong (designated hitter) Kim In-hwan (1st baseman) Lee Jin-young (right fielder) Park Jung-hyun (shortstop) Kwon Kwang-min (left fielder) Park Sang-eon (catcher) Moon Hyun-bin (center fielder). . 

Coach Choi said in Daejeon the day before on the 18th, “Moon Hyun-bin will be limited to an infielder. I will think about it and make a decision,” he said. 

However, on this day, against LG, Moon Hyun-bin was selected as a center fielder. Director Choi said, “The reason why I initially thought of making Moon Hyun-bin an infielder was that I felt the burden of defending the outfield while watching an interview with Moon Hyun-bin in the past. As a second baseman, Hyun Bin has better defensive range and footwork, and Eun-won has better pivot. Jung Eun-won has better batting ability now.”

“I had an emergency meeting with the coaching staff after the game yesterday. They said it was better to give the first team a chance. As an infielder, there is no chance to play, so we decided to send him to the outfield. Currently, Moon Hyun-bin’s hitting is competitive in the outfield. 100% It’s not an outfield conversion, it’s about 30% outfield. If Jung Eun-won goes to the army, second base will be empty.” 먹튀검증

Kwang-Min Kwon, who hit a 3-run home run the previous day as a big defensive player, will start as the left fielder that day. Oh Seon-jin is a great defensive player and can be replaced. Coach Choi explained the lineup, “Chae Eun-seong played the pool until the last 3 games, and catcher Choi Jae-hoon also played the pool for 2 games until the last 3 games, so Park Sang-eon will be the catcher.” 

The starting pitcher on this day is Moon Dong-ju. He is 2-3 with a 4.20 earned run average in 6 games this season. On the 13th, against Incheon SSG, he recorded the worst pitching in his debut with 7 hits, 3 walks, 2 walks and 7 runs in 2⅓ innings. 

Director Choi said, “I told them to throw comfortably. I tell the pitchers to throw with all their might without thinking about the result, and to win right away. When I was in the 2nd team, I told young pitchers to throw only in the middle without manning the ball or corner work. did,” he said.
