Hanwha Eagles outfielder Lim Jong-chan (23), who hit a thrilling walk-off hit in the home opener of the 2024 season in front of a packed crowd, calmly said, “I recorded a walk-off hit for the first time in my life,” and “I feel very good.” “It’s good and exciting,” he said.

Lim Jong-chan hit the first pitch thrown by KT pitcher Lee Sang-dong in the bottom of the 9th inning with 2 outs and runners on 1st and 2nd base in a 2-2 home game against KT Wiz in professional baseball held at Daejeon Hanwha Life Eagles Park on the 29th and hit a timely hit that split the left-center field.

Hanwha won 3-2 and continued their 5-game winning streak.

Lim Jong-chan looked back and said, “Senior Lee Sang-dong struck out the previous batters with a splitter, and it seemed like he was going to throw a splitter at me as well,” and “I aimed from the first pitch, and I was happy that I got a good hit.”

He added, “A batter is bound to fail more than he succeeds,” adding, “Standing at the plate with that mindset led to good results.”

Lim Jong-chan was a promising player who joined Hanwha in 2020, but did not see much success.

He mainly served as a backup, and enlisted on active duty in May 2022, when the regular season was in full swing.

He served in the military as a training camp assistant in Hwacheon-gun, Gangwon-do.

I took a break from baseball for a while, but I didn’t waste my time exercising.

He said, “I ran and did weight training consistently in the military,” and “I lost 10kg of weight compared to before I enlisted.”

Lim Jong-chan, who was discharged ahead of this season, trained harder than anyone else after returning to his team.

He practiced hitting and defense to the point where the skin on his palms peeled off and he developed large calluses.

Hanwha coach Choi Won-ho watched Lim Jong-chan’s training closely and gave him a chance.

And on this day, he created the best scene that ended the team’s victory.

Lim Jong-chan said, “I am not as talented as other players, but I can work harder than anyone else.” He added, “Effort may not directly lead to results, but I believe that it will have a positive impact as the training process accumulates.”

He added, “I gained confidence because the manager and coach taught me a lot,” and added, “I will become a player who can play the role given to me well in the future.” 성인웹툰
