His stolen bases increased significantly after the uniform change. The manager also applauded the transfer’s hustle, saying it was something he hadn’t expected. Samsung manager Park Jin-man spoke about Ryu Ji-hyuk (29), whose stolen base numbers have increased dramatically since wearing a Samsung uniform.
Speaking about Ryu, who had four stolen bases in 66 games for KIA and 21 stolen bases in 55 games for Samsung this season before the 28th game against Jamsil LG, Park said, “Actually, I was surprised. When I saw Ryu as an opposing team player, I didn’t think he was that good at stealing bases. When he came to our team, I realized that he is an experienced player, so his sense and vision of the game are really good.”
Park went on to say that Samsung’s younger players should learn from Ryu’s aggressive base running.
“I think Ryu Ji-hyuk is showing the younger players that they should do the same,” Park said, “We have players with good running ability. They should watch Ryu Ji-hyuk and try to play aggressive baserunning to get one more base. We have a lot of guys who can get on base and swing the bat rather than hit for the fences. I hope our younger players will learn a lot and imitate him.”

This is in line with upcoming changes. The KBO plans to implement the pitch-clock 온라인카지노, runner-stealing restrictions, and expanded base sizes that Major League Baseball implemented this year within two years. The Major Leagues have seen a significant increase in stolen bases this season due to the new rules, and the KBO is likely to see a return to the stolen base era.
Meanwhile, Samsung’s lineup on the day was Ryu Ji-hyuk (second base), Kim Hyun-joon (center field), Koo Ja-uk (left field), Pirela (right field), Oh Jae-il (designated hitter), Lee Jae-hyun (shortstop), Lee Sung-kyu (first base), Kim Young-woong (third base), and Lee Byung-heon (catcher). The starting pitcher is Choi Chae-heung.
