“I really want to go all the way to the championship this time.”
Oh Se-jun (17, photo), a sophomore at Gwangju Dongsung High School, said this after winning a 5-2 come-from-behind victory over Cheongwon High School in the first round of the Golden Lion National High School Baseball Championship and Weekend League Wangjungwangjeon held at Shinwol Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 15th. Oh Se-joon, who played as the 8th batter and 3rd baseman in this game, helped the team win by hitting a tying hit in the top of the 6th inning when the team was trailing 1-2, and hitting a wedge with a 3-2 lead.
Oh Se-jun said, “I really wanted to pass the first round in a big competition called the Golden Lion. I stepped into the batter’s box with the thought that I had to get on base somehow, but I’m glad I got good results.”
Gwangju Dongsung High School is a team that has nothing to do with Golden Lion. It has won a total of 7 times in the 4 major national competitions including the Golden Lion, but the last time it won the Golden Lion was in 1977. Since then, there has been no experience of reaching the finals. On the other hand, in the remaining three tournaments, all of them have won records since 2000.
Oh Se-jun first started playing baseball with his older brother in 2017, when Gwangju Dongseong High School finally reached the semifinals of the Golden Lion. He was in the third grade of Namsan Elementary School in Suncheon. Oh Se-joon said, “My older brother quit baseball right away, but I think baseball suits me really well, so I’ve been playing ever since.”바카라사이트
Sejun Oh also tried to transform into a pitcher last year. However, as his performance did not meet his expectations, he returned to the field this year. Oh Se-jun appeared in a total of 10 games this year and recorded a batting average of 0.344 (11 hits in 32 at-bats).
Oh Se-jun said, “I am confident in my batting average, but I want to improve my long hitting power in the future. He said his goal is to become a player like Lee Jeong-hoo (25, Kiwoom) who has a high batting average and hits a lot of long hits.” Oh Se-joon, like Lee Jung-hoo, throws the ball with his right hand, but when he hits, he stands at bat with his left hand.
