’40 hitter – ERA 0.69′ KT foreign player jackpot, at the center is a similar Korean ’30-year-old Jamin’

At the beginning of this season, if you were to pick a team that had a huge success in farming foreign players, you could definitely think of the KT Wiz.

Wes Benjamin (30), a foreign one-two puncher, is leading the mound with an average ERA of 3.38, with 2 wins and no losses in 3 games, and Bo Schulser (29), a freshman, with an ERA of 0.69, 1 win and 1 loss in 2 games. Foreign hitter Anthony Alford (29) is even more amazing, bombing the league with a batting average of 0.449 in 12 games, 2 home runs, 8 RBIs, 10 runs scored, 2 stolen bases, an on-base percentage of 0.481 and a slugging percentage of 0.694.

It is not easy for all foreign players who are usually recruited to do well. It is because it is not easy to adapt to the unfamiliar Korean culture and baseball environment. It is surprising that Benjamin and Alford, who came in last year as substitutes for William Cuevas (33) and Henry Ramos (31), respectively, adapted quickly to Schulser, even if they have adapted.

A KT official hinted that Benjamin is at the center of it. At the time of recruitment, Benjamin was a proven player in terms of personality enough to be actively recommended by his colleague Hyeon-jong Yang (35, KIA Tigers) during his time with the Texas Rangers in the major leagues. I learned Korean on my own before anyone asked for it, and started writing Hangeul this year. With such extraordinary adaptability, Alford and Schulser gradually melted into Korea.

A KT official said, “Even though Cuevas was replaced last year, he stayed in Suwon and helped Benjamin adapt, and he seems to be trying to continue that part. I go around looking for good places to eat,” he said. “Benjamin’s adaptation is not enough.

It’s not just foreign players getting along well. Benjamin acts as a stepping stone between domestic and foreign players with a mindset that is more Korean than Korean, recognized by all KT clubs. In training on the 17th, he left teammate Kang Baek-ho (24) as a taping mark on the right wall of KT Wiz Park. On the 16th, against the Hanwha Eagles in Suwon, it was a commemoration of Kang Baek-ho’s lake monument, which hit Chae Eun-seong’s batted ball against the wall and caught it.

Benjamin said, “(Kang) Baek-ho is active in the outfield again this season, and on that day (16th), the hobi seemed to announce that he had returned to the outfield after a long time. I only watched it in the US, but I wanted to leave those fun memories in the KBO,” he said.

Everyone at KT was familiar with Benjamin’s affectionate pranks. Park Young-hyeon (20), whom we met after the SSG match on the 18th, said, “Jamin? He is really kind and tells the players what to do and is very good at it.” They give each other touches and fight like friends,” proving their affinity.

KT coach Lee Kang-cheol (57) also introduced an anecdote, saying, “I’m completely adapted to Korean culture, but when I go up the mound,온라인바카라 I’m waiting for each one. So sooner or later, I’ll tell you to relax.” he burst out laughing.

Not only his personality but also his skills are at the highest level in the league, so it is a blessing for KT. Kang Baek-ho finished the opening game on the 1st and said, “I think Benjamin is definitely the KBO league’s No. 1.” Didn’t hesitate.
