The WBC core bullpen has been warmed up… “Feeling Excitement”

For the first time, key relievers Ko Woo-seok and Jung Woo-young of the World Baseball Classic national team performed ‘live pitching’ against batters. He said he felt a good excitement and finished preparing to join the national team tomorrow (the 15th).

This is Reporter Yoo Byung-min from Arizona, USA.


When Woo-Seok Ko and Woo-Young Jung, the core bullpens of the WBC team and LG’s Pil Seung-joo, begin their first live pitching, the LG coaching staff and players gather behind the catcher to ‘see in person’.

[Oh Ji-hwan: Wow~ It’s Go Woo-seok!]

Oh Ji-hwan and Park Hae-min, who were selected together for the national team, entered the batting table to quickly adapt to the ball, and a confrontation between the representative players took place.

Go Woo-seok threw 25 balls, and his top speed was already 150 km/h.

[Nice ball! and… ]

[Ko Woo-seok/ LG Pitcher: Thank you for being active at bat and actively giving feedback.]

Jung Woo-young mainly checked his main weapon two-seam, but he regretted that he lost a bet with Oh Ji-hwan.

[Jung Woo-young/LG Pitcher: I made a bet with (Oh) Ji-hwan… I made a coffee bet. (You won?) But I gave up a walk (lose), so I think it was fun… .]

Go Woo-seok and Jung Woo-young, who have the 1st and 2nd place in ball speed in the national team with an average fastball speed of 150 km/h last year, play a key role in the bullpen, and are overcoming the burden with a happy heart.

[Ko Woo-seok/LG Pitcher: It seems like a pleasant excitement. I’m thinking that if I step on the mound, I’ll have strength and determination that I didn’t have before.]

Woo-seok Ko and Woo-young Jung, who have warmed up with their powerful first pitch, finish training at their team LG and join the national team tomorrow. 바카라

Five pitchers, including catcher Yang Eui-ji and Park Se-woong, who had been training outside the United States, gathered at Incheon International Airport today and left for the national team’s Arizona camp.
