Ace Yang Hyeon-jong, who is participating in the KIA Tigers spring camp, showed a strong will to jump to the championship.
On the 6th (local time), Yang Hyeon-jong made his first bullpen pitching in training on the 6th day of spring camp held in Tucson, Arizona, USA.
There were a total of 30 pitches, and I focused on raising my senses by checking all four major pitches, including fastball, slider, curveball and changeup.
Yang Hyeon-jong, who will join the WBC national team from the 14th, threw all his bullpen pitching with the WBC official ball that day.
In an interview conducted after his bullpen pitching, Yang Hyeon-jong showed a strong desire to jump to the championship this season.
Yang Hyeon-jong, who recalled last season’s fall baseball, saying it was “empty” because it ended in one game, conveyed the atmosphere of the team, saying, “It seems that there is a lot of miasma.”
He expressed his aspirations to advance to fall baseball once again this year, and expressed his desire to challenge for the championship, saying he wanted to play baseball for a long time even after the regular season.
He also revealed his expectations for the newly recruited foreign pitchers.
Yang Hyeon-jong, who showed expectations for the skills of both Anderson and Medina, praised Anderson, who worked together in the minor leagues when he entered the United States, saying that he was actively trying to adapt to the team. 스포츠토토
Meanwhile, KT Wiz coach Lee Kang-cheol, who also serves as the WBC national team coach, visited KIA’s training ground that day and watched Yang Hyeon-jong’s bullpen pitching.
Coach Lee, who had a short conversation with Hyeon-jong Yang after pitching, asked Hyeon-jong Yang to center himself as a veteran within the national team while checking his physical condition.
Yang Hyeon-jong, who started to adapt to the WBC official ball in earnest with bullpen pitching, said that he would do his best to adapt, saying that it could not be an excuse for some points that it was a little slippery compared to the KBO official ball.
In addition, he said, “It is an honor just to be selected for the national team,” regarding concerns about the disruption to the season preparation by participating in the WBC, and promised to achieve good results and enjoy the season.
