Lotte Rookie Na Seung-yeop

Lotte’s rookie infielder Na Seung-yeop (19) pulled a rather lucky hit in his first at-bat for his professional debut.

Na Seung-yeop was first registered for the first-team entry before the SSG resignation on the 12th, and at the same time, he was named in the starting lineup as a 7th batter and first baseman.

Na Seung-yeop, who entered the first at-bat at the end of the second at the end of the 2nd inning, where the team lagged 0-3, entered the 3rd inning as 1st base runner Dickson Machado failed to steal the 2nd base. Left-handed hitter Na Seung-yeop beat SK underhand Park Jong-hoon’s curve. The missed hit rolled in front of third baseman Choi Jeong. Choi Jung stepped on the ball, but the batting ball was so slow that he did not get back to first base. It was the first hit of Na Seung-yeop’s professional debut.

He joined the second round of the rookie draft last year, and he is a promising player with a down payment of 500 million won. He played 6 games (0.308 batting average) in the demonstration game and also played as an outfielder. In the Futures League, he played 17 games and hit a batting average of 0.224, 1 home run, and 12 RBIs.

Lotte’s new coach Larry Sutton said, “Lotte’s future third baseman.”
