Not only the face, but also the bat began to resemble… Doosan’s ‘Altubito’ Rojas


“I feel very relaxed mentally. It seems to work well to put the focus on the mental rather than the technical.”

Jose Rojas (Doosan Bears) has an extraordinary sense of hitting. It is the bat that Doosan and manager Lee Seung-yeop wanted.

Lohas played as the fifth hitter and left fielder in the game against the Kiwoom Heroes in Jamsil on the 7th, leading the team to a 10-0 victory with 2 hits in 4 at-bats, 1 walk and 3 RBIs. In particular, he pressed Kiwoom’s momentum early by hitting the final with a double in the third inning.

Lohas was synonymous with sluggishness until recently. His batting average dropped to the 10th level, and pessimism about whether or not to replace him constantly followed him. In the end, he moved to the Futures (group 2) team, but nothing special came out.

However, the recent rise has been remarkable. It is not a temporary level. Starting with the Ulsan Lotte Giants match on the 2nd, he recorded 14 hits, 4 RBIs and 8 walks in 5 games. In the meantime, he has temporarily helped the team with long hits, but it is the first time this season that he has poured out multiple hits and walks in a row.

Lojas, who met with Bonji after the game on the 7th, came into the dugout while being congratulated as ‘Altubito’ by Doosan officials in charge of interpreting. When asked what it meant, he laughed and said, “I’m close with the interpreter managers, and they call me that because I look like Jose Altuve (Houston Astros).”토토사이트주소

Not only his face resembles Altuve, but even the feeling of hitting is no less than Altuve. When asked about the secret of his sense of hitting, he explained, “I am very relaxed mentally. It seems to work well to put the focus on the mental rather than the technical.”

The person who helped me improve my mentality was Lee Young-soo, the futures hitting coach. Coach Lee came up to the first team with him and continues to support him. Rojas said, “Coach Lee talked a lot about the mental part.” “He tells me things like, ‘Let’s stay calm. However, it helped me a lot,” he said.

The secret to accuracy is, after all, pioneering. Coach Lee Seung-yeop also expressed regret whenever he explained LOHAS’ sluggishness, saying, “The bat keeps coming out of Yoo In-gu.” However, as can be seen from the recent walk trend, Rojas’ pioneering condition is at its peak. Rojas looked back and said, “He tried to hurt the ball too much.” Of course, he is not conceited that he has a good sense of hitting. Rojas laughed, “This is baseball. I don’t know what will happen tomorrow right now.” I don’t know tomorrow, but at least I was able to finish the first half with a smile.
