Even on the day he hit a home run on the first team stage after 4 years and 7 months, Byeong-wook Lim (28, Kiwoom Heroes) said, “My goal is diligence and sincerity.” I didn’t elaborate, but Lim Byeong-wook, who
was plagued by injuries every time he drew an upward curve, knows that he must be healthy to play the ground diligently and diligently.
At the end of the first inning with a 3-0 lead, 2 out 2nd base, opponent starter Yoon Young-cheol hit a 129km/h slider and drew a two-run arch over the right wall.
It was a home run 1,658 days after the Gocheok NC Dinos match on September 30, 2018.
Lim Byeong-wook, whom I met after the game, told me the ‘secret story of the birth of a home run’.
Lim Byeong-wook, a left-handed hitter, raised his left hand and asked the referee for ‘time’ before hitting a home run.
However, referee Ham Ji-woong did not accept this, and Yun Young-cheol continued his pitching posture.
Lim Byeong-wook, who lowered his left hand and focused on Yoon Young-chul’s ball, sent his batted ball out of the fence.
Lim Byung-wook said, “I asked for ‘time’ because the timing between the pitcher and I didn’t match, but it wasn’t accepted. But a home run came out.”
He didn’t even know the ‘previous home run record’.
Lim Byung-wook confessed, “I didn’t realize that I hadn’t hit a home run in so long until a club official informed me.”
Lim Byung-wook is an all-round outfielder for the Hotajun tribe, who was nominated by the Heroes for the first time in 2014.
He has quick feet, wide range, and the punch to expect double-digit homers every year.
However, due to his injury, he missed many opportunities to showcase his talent. 메이저사이트

In September of last year, before returning to Kiwoom after completing his military service, he also injured his left middle finger.
Im Byung-wook said, “Everyone has a hard time when injured. I have to work harder to get back up again.” , I forget the fear of injury itself. I am playing stably with a lot of help from the training part.”
‘Healthy Lim Byeong-wook’ has a lot to do on the pitch.
However, Lim Byung-wook emphasized, “There is no goal set in terms of numbers. My goal is always diligence and sincerity.”
If Byeong-wook Lim maintains only health to train sincerely, his Kiwoom outfield team will become more solid.
Lim Byung-wook said, “I want to see coach Hong Won-ki’s face every day with a healthy body.”
