“You can’t be conscious of the hitting king… I don’t look at records and do a lot of good things” Goo Ja-wook, who rose to the top with no thoughts 

I looked back at the fact that I had competed for the batting title several times before, but I could not stand at the top. In the end, I made up my mind to stand at the plate every time without thinking as much as I get nervous and have a bad influence if I am conscious. Samsung’s Koo Ja-wook (30), who has been producing hits since June and is recording a batting average of 40% in the second half, played an active role.

On the 17th, against Daegu LG, Koo Ja-wook played as the right fielder with the third hitter and made a splash with 4 hits and 3 RBIs in 4 at-bats. He led the team to a 4-2 victory with hits in every at-bat, from a heavy hit in the first at-bat in the 1st inning, a timely hit in the 3rd inning, a two-run four in the 5th inning, and a right-handed hit in the 7th inning.

Thanks to Ja-wook Koo’s performance, Samsung succeeded in the winning series, and Ja-wook Koo raised his batting average to 0.341 and triple-digit hits for 9 consecutive years. It was Koo Ja-wook who struggled the previous day with no hits in 4 at-bats, but rose to his feet again today and took first place in the batting average category. His batting average reached 0.364 in June, 0.377 in July, and 0.417 in August. With a batting average of 0.407 in the second half, it is no exaggeration to say that he is the most feared hitter in the current league.

The following is the Q&A of Koo Ja-wook and reporters.

-Today, 4 hits and more than 100 hits for 9 consecutive years. How do you feel?

It’s a 100 hit that I have to do, but I’m a bit ashamed to say that I achieved it like this. He’s in a good mood, but the truth is he doesn’t know how many hits he’s taken. It feels good to have achieved, but it feels even better that the team won. In fact, I thought my luck for a month was over as I went no hits yesterday. So I went to today’s game with the mindset of putting it down, and luck seems to have come again.

-I think it would be meaningful to hit the right time and hit the home run when it was important.

  • Yesterday and the day before yesterday were not feeling well, what was the cause?

I do not know. The day before yesterday, Plutko threw a very good ball. Yesterday seemed a little impatient. So I thought my happy month was over, but today I was lucky enough to get a hit from the first at-bat. It seems to have gained momentum through luck.

-When you hit a home run, you didn’t seem to exert any effort at all.

I never expected a home run. The runner was (Kim) Seong-yoon, and he was conscious of stealing and thought he could throw a fast ball, so he just tried to hit the center.

-How does it feel to be number 1 in batting average again?

I just think I’m the luckiest guy in the league. Actually, I don’t know what my batting average is right now. I don’t even look at the scoreboard record during the game. If he’s the top batting average at the end of the season, he’ll care, but he still has more than 40 games left. I think 40 games is a lot left. Above all, I had once competed for the batting title. The hitting king should not be conscious. It is a blow to collapse the moment you become conscious.메이저놀이터

-Still, I think I’m hoping for good luck in the usual way, like picking up trash.

I don’t look at the records, I try to do a lot of good things and good things. Garbage is not thrown away at all.

  • There are a lot of conversations with head coach Lee Byung-kyu in the second half. Did you have any advice today?

A lot of know-how is being passed on. I understand why my coach during my active career was so great. He keeps getting good advice.

  • He said he doesn’t look at the record, but how long will he not look at it?

I don’t want to see you anymore I really think it’s right to watch it if there are about 5 games left.
