Once upon a time, the word ‘La Vin three run’ was popular. One of the nicknames of the LG Twins star, ‘Red Toma’ Lee Byeong-gyu (current Samsung head coach), is ‘Labin’. When he entered the plate, the fans chanted “La Vin three run” in unison. Then, Lee Byeong-gyu exploded a 3-run home run and drove the fans into a crucible of enthusiasm.
However, the son of ‘Labin’ exploded ‘Three Run’ and led the team to victory in the cold game. The main character is Lee Seung-min (18), a promising outfielder in his third year at Whimoon High School.
Lee Seung-min started as the 4th hitter center fielder in the 1st round of the ‘2023 Shinsegae E-Mart Cup National High School Baseball Tournament’ held at Gyeongju Baseball Park Field 1 on the 25th, 2 hits 3 He played an active part in the RBI and took the lead in the team’s 8-1, 7th cold game victory.
Bukil High School is a national powerhouse that became the first champion in the newly established Shinsegae E-Mart last year. However, Whimungo took control of the victory in the early game as a candidate for the championship.
After one death in the bottom of the first inning, Baek Gye-ryeol went out with a hit ball, and advanced to third base with a stolen base and third batter An Woo-jin’s infield grounder. Then, when fourth hitter Seung-Min Lee was at bat, starting pitcher Joo-Won Choi of Bukil High School scored the first run.
Whimungo made a ‘big inning’ by scoring 5 points at once at the end of the 3rd inning. Leading 8th hitter Kim Yong-hyun’s left-handed hit안전놀이터, 9th hitter Lee Jeong-joon’s walk, and 1st hitter Jeong An-seok’s sacrifice bunt resulted in a 3-0 lead with Baek Gye-ryeol’s double with 2 RBIs on 2nd and 3rd base. Then, in the 1st and 2nd bases created by a walk by third batter An Woo-jin, Lee Seung-min hit a 3-run homer that went over the right middle fence. It was the moment when the son of ‘La Vin’ reproduced ‘La Vin Three Run’. The score quickly widened to 6-0, and the game was on the decline.
Even at the end of the 4th inning, Whimungo ran away to 8-0, adding 2 points with an infield grounder and a wild throw from the opposing pitcher from 1 out 2nd and 3rd base.
Bukil High School had a chance to safely load the bases in the top of the 7th inning, but it was regrettable that fourth hitter Yang Jae-ho’s batted ball was hit by a straight hit by the shortstop. Hyo-Won Jo, the 5th hitter, pursued one point with a sacrifice fly to center fielder, but fell into the tournament’s cold game rules (seven or more in the 7th and 8th innings) and experienced the pain of being eliminated from last year’s championship team in the first round this year.
In particular, the game on this day attracted attention because of ace Kim Hwi-gun, who transferred from Bukil High School to Whimoon High School ahead of this season. Kim Hwi-gun, equipped with a fastball of 150 km per hour, is a power pitcher who is considered one of the “Big 3” prospects in high school baseball this season. Coincidentally, the part where the match was made from the first round in the matchup lottery also became a hot topic. However, Whimungo easily won a cold game without Kim Hwi-gun’s mound and confirmed his appearance as a candidate for the championship.
Whimoon High School coach Oh Tae-geun said, “I didn’t intentionally not let Kim Hwi-gun go to the mound,” he said. Kim Hwi-gun is scheduled to appear in the Busan Classics.”
Lee Seung-min led the batting line with 2 hits, 1 walk, 3 RBIs and 1 run in 3 at bats, 2 at bats, recording not only a home run, but also a walk in the first inning and an infield hit to the second baseman in the 5th inning. Like my father, I am 188 cm tall.
Regarding Lee Seung-min, coach Oh Tae-geun said, “He was a player who originally had power. I wanted to improve his contact skills a little, but I improved a lot after Whimoon High School senior commentator Park Yong-taek came to give advice and guidance last winter.” had no hesitation in
