Dinosaurs’ outside hitter ‘Power is good’

“The farthest hitter I’ve ever seen in person was Woods…”

NC Dinos manager Kang Myung-ho made the press laugh by showing off a ‘chunky’ grocery store drip (?) against the Changwon KIA Tigers in an exhibition game on Tuesday. Describing the power of new foreign hitter Matt Davidson (33), Kang said, “If you add a little lie, I think it will fly to ‘Home XX’ over there.”

Changwon NC Park is a beautiful stadium located in the city center of Changwon, but you can see Home XX, a large supermarket, over the left field fence. The logo of Home XX is clearly visible from the first and third base dugouts. It looks like it’s right there, but it’s actually beyond the outfield fence, across one of the main streets, and behind it. It was about 300 meters away from the NC Park outfield.

The reason Kang tells this story is to illustrate how much power and long ball Davidson has. “He’s a player who will definitely show good things if he adapts. She can hit whoever she wants,” he said.

In real life, Davidson hit 19 home runs in the 2023 season for the Hiroshima Toyokafe of Nippon Professional Baseball. He has 54 career major league home runs and 226 career minor league home runs. In 2019 and 2022, he hit 33 and 32 home runs in Triple-A, respectively. He has a career batting average of .220 in the majors and .258 in the minors, so while his accuracy may be lacking, his power is there.

“The farthest I’ve ever seen a hitter hit in person was Woods (Tyrone),” said Kang. Davidson’s power and destructiveness are comparable to Woods’. Woods, who represented the KBO as a foreigner in the league’s early years, played for the Doosan Bears in 2002.

In spring training in Tucson, Woods didn’t play in any of the exhibition games. It was his own request. He only played in the team’s own blue-and-white games to improve his condition. As it turned out, he modified his batting form to adapt to the KBO this season, and he didn’t go to any outside practice games because he 카지노 needed to get it right.

If manager Kang Myung-hwa exaggerated, he wasn’t wrong. After going 0-for-3 in the opening game on Sept. 9, Davidson went 2-for-3 with a double and three RBIs in the 10th game. In the bottom of the third inning with the bases loaded and the score 1-2, Davidson lined a 137-kilometer fastball from Yoon Young-chul over the right-field fence for a double. The pitch hit the right-field wall and bounced away.

“It was a good feeling overall,” Davidson said. Yesterday, I didn’t have good timing at the plate. I worked on that today and I’m glad it paid off. I don’t really prepare for anything in particular. I just tried to hit pitches in the strike zone and make productive at-bats.”

In conclusion, Davidson said, “I’m still trying to adjust to the new stadium and environment. The supporters are amazing. It seems to create a fun atmosphere. I’m going to try to continue to have a good overall performance on offense and defense during the exhibition games and continue to adjust to the new stadium and environment and try to help the team win.”
