‘Hold King’ LG Jung Woo-young was one of the targets to be wary of by Japanese coach Hideki Kuriyama, who watched the KBO playoffs last year. The fast sinker with a speed of over 150 km/h has a unique movement, so it is not easy to attack until you get used to it.
Jung Woo-young, the Korean hold king, who was wary of the Japanese coach, is about to make his world stage debut as he was included in the final roster for the WBC (World Baseball Classic) on the 4th. However, there is a high possibility that he will appear as a completely different pitcher from the data prepared by the power analysis team that coach Kuriyama watched on the field. He is preparing an improved form to check runners.
After Jung Woo-young’s inclusion in the national team was confirmed on the 4th, he said, “I feel good now. I think I should try (with a changed form).” He is saying that he will apply the WBC first after he has definitely adapted to the form that has changed from spring camp and practice games.
Jung Woo-young, who recorded an ERA of 2.64 in 35 holds last year, had a fatal weakness of allowing stealing bases. He allowed a whopping 29 of 30 stolen base attempts. He was a pitcher who could easily get into scoring position just by getting on base. 안전놀이터
He needed a change. As Jung Woo-young prepares for his new season, he decided to make small changes to his pitching form. He says he is preparing in a way that will help keep runners in check, although it will not change drastically.
Jung Woo-young said, “It seems that there is a misunderstanding, not a misunderstanding. It’s not that I’m changing a lot of things. I’m training to learn how to use strength in a short time from the original form. The coach also said that he was not changing the form, but adding another form. Even if you fail, you can just go back to your original form. I don’t think too deeply and think of it as a short-lived movement and I’m training.”
He also said, “On the outside, there doesn’t seem to be much difference. Still, if you measure it with a watch, it will show. I’m shooting a video while throwing it, but it seems to be much faster than before.”
Wouldn’t it be uneasy to try a new form in an international competition rather than the regular season? Jung Woo-young said, “I think I should throw this form at the camp and keep trying it in the practice game.” said.
