“Who says Ohtani hit a home run?”… Rookie of the Year → First national team, I’m not afraid of the WBC

Jeong Cheol-won (24, Doosan), who appeared like a comet last year and won the Rookie of the Year award, achieved his dream of becoming a national representative. For the first time in his life, he wears the Taegeuk mark, but he has no fear. He just wants to head to the Tokyo Dome and throw his ball against world-class players.

Cheol-Won Jeong is preparing for the upcoming new season and WBC at the Doosan Spring Camp in Blacktown, Sydney, Australia. On the first day of the camp, on the 1st, he teamed up with national team catcher Yang Eui-ji for bullpen pitching, and unlike other players, he improved his pitching skills by using the WBC official ball.

Jeong Cheol-won, who we met at the scene, said, “I like Australia because the weather is warm. I think I can pick up the pace quickly before going to the WBC,” he said. “I am in very good condition. I am preparing well for the WBC with (Kwak) Bin.” 

The first battery breathing with Yang Eui-ji was also satisfactory. Jeong Cheol-won said, “I tried it for the first time with (Yang) Eui-ji, and it fits well. “The thoughts are similar,” he said. “He told me exactly what I felt while throwing. I was convinced that what I was thinking was not wrong. He paid his respects to the senior’s lead, saying, “I think I will be able to do better next pitch because he gave me a lot of good words.” 

What was the first WBC official ball you caught? He said, “It was the same baseball, so there was nothing difficult. he is confident He has a bit of a slippery feeling, but if he prepares well and raises his senses, I think there will be no problems.”  메이저놀이터
