KBSA Director Cha Myung-joo believes that the introduction of aluminum bats is urgent for the fundamental development of Korean baseball.

“U.S. and Japanese players use aluminum bats that have limitations on repulsion when they are amateurish. Korean players have been using wooden bats for nearly 20 years, but there is a problem that the gap in level has widened. If young players use a wooden bat whose central point of gravity is at the tip, they will have to strain their wrist joints that have not grown that much. Only at the age of 25 can they fully use the strength of their wrist joints. They can use aluminum bats to make swings that can fully convey their power,” said Cha Myung-joo, a board member.

In addition, director Cha Myung-joo’s view is that if the aluminum bat is reintroduced, the quality of the batting can improve the skills of pitchers and fielders.

Above all, it is analyzed that it could be a great help to nurture future power resources. While Park Byung-ho (KT WIZ) and Choi Jeong (SSG Landers), who used wooden bats in their school days, exchanged home run titles for a long time, Noh Si-hwan (Hanwha Eagles) was thirsty for a promising Korean baseball slugger in the 2023 season. However, given the composition of the Korean national team’s batting lineup at recent international competitions, it is also true that the team still lacks resources for big guns. The reason why the so-called “tick-tick” left-handed type was spotlighted is also related to the introduction of wooden bats. Attention is focusing on whether a meaningful conclusion can be drawn through a public hearing on the conversion of non-wood bats.
