Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop registered outfielder Kim In-tae as a first-team entry ahead of the game against KT in Jamsil on the 4th. Manager Lee, who called Kim In-tae 119 days after the Gwangju KIA match on April 7, when he suffered a shoulder dislocation injury, said, “I was told that I could play in the first team. To be honest, personally, I wanted to build a better body, but it was okay when I saw the movements while practicing today. There was no reason not to upload it because the team’s batting line was currently stagnant.”
Kim In-tae, who was picked as Lee Seung-ho’s starting outfielder from last year’s finish camp, suffered a dislocated shoulder while running base against the KIA game in Gwangju on April 7, and faced the bad news that he was out of full force after the opening six games. Initially, he was given 4 weeks to recover, but the rehabilitation was prolonged, and after 4 months of hard work, he returned to the first team stage.
Kim In-tae, whom we met in Jamsil on the 4th, said with a smile, “It took a long time, right?” It was frustrating. It was the first time he had such a long rehabilitation since joining the pros. Of course, I also rode an ambulance for the first time. His shoulder range of motion was not good, so it took a longer time to return than expected. He could have avoided surgery instead.”
It wasn’t until July that Kim In-tae was able to grab a bat and start training. Later, on the first day of August, he played against Goyang in the Futures League and hit a double to announce the return of a scene stealer.
Kim In-tae said, “The first time I practiced, it was a bit burdensome, but it was okay because there was no pain than I thought. He said, “I was able to overcome the frustration thanks to the players who rehabilitated with me in the second group. There was a lot of will among the injured players. I am also grateful to those players.”
The Doosan outfield without Kim In-tae was operated with Kim Jae-hwan, Jeong Su-bin, and Jose Rojas, but in fact, only one full-time starter was Jeong Su-bin. Kim Jae-hwan went back and forth between left fielder and designated hitter due to stamina arrangement, and Rojas suffered a back injury recently and was managed by the training part. In addition, Kim Dae-han, Hong Seong-ho, Kim Tae-geun, and Song Seung-hwan took turns in charge of a spot in the outfield, but none of them took the surname of Lee.
Kim In-tae, who watched the competition in the Doosan outfield in the first half, said, “Perhaps all the players wanted to be the starting outfielder.” If you go to the game, you have to do better, and even if you can’t go out, you have to help the team from the bench.”
Kim In-tae recently became a hot topic when he sent a text message to coach Lee from the 2nd division. What kind of text message did coach Lee send that gave him the advice, “Prepare step by step and come up to the first team”?
Kim In-tae said, “The coach said congratulations for achieving a new record (11 consecutive wins), but after he sent that text message, it was uncomfortable because he kept losing. I thought I lost because I contacted you. Coincidentally, from then on, I went into a 5-game losing streak,” he said with a laugh. I felt like I just sent a text message saying that I just wanted to congratulate you in my heart.”
In addition, there was also a regret of not being able to win 11 consecutive wins, the most ever with the team. Kim In-tae said, “Looking at the winning streak, I thought that Doosan hadn’t done well so far, but on the other hand, it was regrettable that I couldn’t feel the winning streak with his teammates. As a player, you should be together on the pitch, but I couldn’t feel it and I hated it because I only watched it on TV. In the meantime, the team won consecutively and the rankings went up, so I felt at least comfortable. It was good that the other players were doing well,” he said.
Doosan, who played 90 games, has 54 games left until the end of the season. Currently, they are tied for 4th place with 46 wins, 1 draw and 43 losses. This is why the return of Kim In-tae, who has a winning position, is more welcome than ever.
Kim In-tae said, “The bottom of the leaderboard is too closely attached to the top,” and “I will go in a way that can help the team somehow for the rest of the season, and I have to go that way. I will help the team in any way I can. I hope my efforts will be of some help to the team.”
He did not forget to greet the Doosan fans who had been waiting for him for four months. Kim In-tae said, “It’s been a long time since I came back, but it’s really good because the place to return is the home stadium. I was lucky,” he said. “I don’t have much left in the second half, but I will do my best to show you a good image as much as I can.”
Kim In-tae was also Doosan’s new stealer. On this day, he appeared as a pinch hitter with 2 out 1st and 2nd base in the 8th inning, trailing 2-4, and showed off his strong side in scoring by hitting 1 RBI in time for the chase.
