Dodgers, Last Training Before Opening Day

Dodgers, Last Training Before Opening Day... Betz Sweats Until the Last Minute

Ohtani, who will serve as designated hitter, will only train indoors.

Mookie Betts (31, Los Angeles Dodgers), who moved to shortstop just before the opening, stayed on the field until the end, a day before the opening game of the 2024 Major League Baseball (MLB).

On the 19th, the Dodgers held their ‘last training before opening day’ at Gocheok Sky Dome in Guro-gu, Seoul.

The Dodgers and San Diego Padres will play their opening two-game series at Gocheok Dome on the 20th and 21st.

After warming up with warm-up games against the Korean Professional Baseball Kiwoom Heroes on the 17th and the Korean National Baseball Team on the 18th, the Dodgers conducted 'self-training' on the 19th.

‘Superstar’ Shohei Ohtani, who played as the designated hitter, did not come to the ground but warmed up through indoor training.

Only Betts and a few infielders, including Freddie Freeman, Max Muncy, and Gavin Lux, came out to practice defense.

Tyler Glasnow and Yoshinobu Yamamoto, who were selected as starters in Game 1, prepared to pitch by playing catch in the outfield.

Among the Dodgers players, Betts was the first to arrive on the field and the last to receive the ball.

There is a reason why Betts, who was named the best player in the American League (AL) in 2018 and won the Gold Glove award given to the player with the best defense for each position six times in the National League and AL combined, is working hard on defense training.

Just before coming to Korea, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts announced, “The starting shortstop for the Dodgers this year is Betts.”

Originally, the Dodgers planned to form the 2024 keystone combination of second baseman Betts and shortstop Lux.

However, as Lux revealed a throwing problem, Coach Roberts made a decision.

Betts played 8,121 ⅓ innings as a right fielder in his MLB career, and only 98 innings as a shortstop.

He held second base for 713 innings.

Betts, who is not familiar with the shortstop position, devoted his time to defensive training, starting with his first Gocheok Dome training on the 16th, evaluation games on the 17th and 18th, and self-training on the 19th.

In the opening two-game series against the San Diego Padres to be played at Gocheok Dome on the 20th and 21st, Betts will compete with Kim Ha-seong (San Diego) for the starting shortstop.

Ha-seong Kim, who won the NL Gold Glove last year after competing with Betts, was impressed by Betts' passionate training.

Ha-seong Kim said in an interview with reporters on the 18th, "Betts is a player so great that he can't be compared to me.

His defense is also really excellent," and "Seeing a player like that train passionately is a good stimulus to other players as well.

Korean midi and fans come out."

“I appreciate you calling Betts ‘competitive,’ but Betts is a player on a different level,” he said.
