Hanwha Eagles Ha Joo-seok, whose suspension was lifted, started his first real fight by participating in a Futures League game.
Ha Joo-seok started as the first hitter and shortstop in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO Futures League match against the Goyang Heroes held at Goyang Baseball Stadium on the 5th and recorded 2 hits and 1 walk in 4 at-bats.
Ha Joo-seok was caught in a drinking crackdown in Dong-gu, Daejeon, early in the morning in November last year, during the finishing camp, and his license was suspended with a blood alcohol level of 0.078%. The KBO Reward and Punishment Committee imposed a 70-game suspension on Ha Joo-seok in accordance with Article 151 of the KBO Rules [Damage of Dignity], and Ha Joo-seok’s punishment was lifted at the end of last month.안전놀이터
After being suspended from playing, Ha Joo-seok did not play in the remaining army game. It has been about 9 months since the last game of the regular season last year. Ha Joo-seok, who was kicked out of the first at-bat with a ground ball against Kiwoom Roh Un-hyeon, walked out in the second at-bat.
And Ha Joo-seok, who recorded a left-handed hit in the 5th inning, went on base with a ground ball against pitcher Hong Seong-min, who changed in the 7th inning, taking advantage of a fielder’s mistake. Afterwards, against Yang Ji-yul, he completed a multi-hit by hitting a left-handed double in the 9th inning.
Director Choi Won-ho is in the position that Ha Joo-seok has a long gap in practice, so we still have to keep an eye on Ha Joo-seok’s condition. Director Choi said, “Lee Do-yoon is doing well,” and indicated that he would not rush Ha Joo-seok’s call-up.
