“I want to pitch (Kang) Minho-hyung, saying, ‘You’ve grown a lot,’ throughout the season, so you can think, ‘If Won Tae-in comes out, I really won today.’”
Won Tae-in started in the Shinhan Bank SOL KBO league demonstration game for the 2023 season held at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 23rd, and blocked 4 innings with 5 strikeouts, 4 pitches, and no runs perfect, leading the team to a 6-5 victory. On this day, Won Tae-in threw 45 pitches and made a perfect pitch against 12 batters without allowing a single on-base.
After playing as a member of the 2023 World Baseball Classic national team, it was more meaningful because it was a flawless pitch shown in the first appearance of the demonstration game after the call was lifted.
It’s ironic, but Won Tae-in, who has been practicing with the official ball for the WBC for the past few months, now has to go through the process of adapting to the official ball of the KBO again. 메이저사이트
Won Tae-in said, “I haven’t adapted to 100% yet. There was also a part where the changeup was plugged into the ground, and a misfire came out,” he said.
At the same time, Won Tae-in explained, “The Korean ball seems to have better control of sliders and curves, but the change-up throw has changed a lot, so the course I wanted and the falling movement are still not perfect.”
