In this AFC Champions League, the “Front Manager” Chen Jinfeng named Liu Jihong, the fourth best player of the Chinese team. After the Taiwan competition, he seamlessly joined the training camp the day before yesterday. Yesterday (14th), he flew to Japan with the team to prepare for tomorrow’s game. Looking at the Chinese team’s batting lineup, Liu Jihong’s long hitting ability is indeed the most threatening. This tournament is his first international tournament as a baseball player. He said that he wanted to see the gap between himself and foreign players.
“It’s almost the same now, I haven’t let go too much.” Liu Jihong said about his condition. He should still feel good. After the Taiwan competition, he reported to the Chinese team. He moved a little bit on the first day. He didn’t move on the plane yesterday.
Liu Jihong was named by President Feng as the most capable hitter in the Chinese team, so he was assigned to the fourth bat. He said, “Everyone can hit.” But President Feng said that he was most comfortable with the role of the fourth bat. After all, he almost always plays this role from the regular season to the Taiwan competition. He said: “That’s it.” He doesn’t know his condition yet and won’t know until tomorrow’s game, but he felt quite comfortable during practice today. , the air conditioning and the venue are really comfortable. As for the artificial turf of the Tokyo Dome, he said that it is different from Tianmu, and the bounce will slow down.
In the first international competition after becoming a baseball player, Liu Jihong said, “I want to see the difference in strength between myself and foreign players. We are about the same age and see if their strength is different from ours.” He also thinks that he will join professional baseball in early 2019. By the time I play in the Taiwan Competition this year, I will be considered my most mature this year. I will have the opportunity to challenge foreign pitchers, and I hope I will not be suppressed.
