‘Is there a magnet in your body?’ Three times, but the beast still smiled

“The Golden Lion must win the championship.”

“It feels good to win, though.”

Deoksugo won 7-3 in the quarterfinals of the 78th Golden Lion National High School Baseball Tournament and Weekend League Wangjoongwang at Mokdong Baseball Stadium on Friday against Gwangju Jeil-Go. Park Jun-soon, batting third and playing second base, went 1-for-2 with a double, a triple, a stolen base, and two runs scored. He helped Duksugo advance to the quarterfinals. Despite being hit by a pitch three times, Park was all smiles after the game.

He’s been hit too many times. As if he had a magnet, the balls thrown by opposing pitchers were attracted to him. After hitting a single to right in his first at-bat in the first inning, Park was hit by a ball thrown by Gwangju First Team’s Kim Tae-hyun in his second at-bat in the third inning. Then, in the third at-bat of the fifth inning, he was hit again by a pitch from the new pitcher, Kwon Hyun-woo. Park Jun-soon looked at the mound as if his emotions were rising.

Park pushed through the pain. In the sixth inning, he grounded out to second base, but in the eighth inning, he was hit again by a pitch from Kim Sung-joon. In total, Park Jun-soon was hit three times in the quarterfinals against Gwangju Jeil-Go. The pain didn’t subside after the game, but Park smiled and said, “It hurts, but I feel better because I won.”

Jun-soon Park is one of the biggest names in the draft. He has great defense and is known for his ability to make contact at the plate. His speed to get the ball out of his glove when he turns a double play is second to none. He”s also very athletic and can steal bases at any time. His original position is shortstop, but because he is playing on a team with a top high school shortstop named Bae Seung-soo, he is playing second base.

When asked about his ability to make contact, Park said, “I approach every at-bat with the idea that I’m going to hit the ball that’s in the strike zone. I’ve been 먹튀검증 drawing pictures during practice, which has made my hitting more precise,” he explained. As for the secret to getting the ball out quickly, “I’ve been doing it since I was a kid. At first, I was just playing around with it, but then it became second nature.”

His role model is Kim Ha-sung, especially his defense. When Kim was playing for the Kiwoom Heroes, Park Jun-soon went to the stadium to watch him play, and since Kim left for the San Diego Padres in Major League Baseball, Park has been following him through broadcasts and highlights. “I was more attracted to Kim Ha-seong because he played the same position. I was attracted to his wide defensive range and strong shoulders. I still watch his games. I want to be a player like Kim Ha-sung,” he laughed.

Junsoon Park has two goals this year. Personally, he wants to become the No. 1 draft pick. He also wants to bring at least two national trophies to Ducksugo. Ducksugo has already won the Shinsegae E-Mart Cup in April.

Park Jun-soon said, “We won the E-Mart ship, but we want more trophies. We want to win at least two tournaments. The players are trying to keep their excitement as low as possible. I believe that if the team wins, my value will increase dramatically. Then I will be the first of the Beasts to wear a professional jersey,” he said.
