Kiwoom players sweated while pitching the bullpen at the “2023 Spring Camp” held at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick in Arizona on the 14th (토토사이트).
A special guest came to the spring camp that day. Park Chan-ho, a former major leaguer, came to cheer for his “best friend” coach Hong Won-ki.
Park Chan-ho watched Kiwoom pitchers’ live pitching in personally. He grabbed the players one by one and gave them advice on technical and psychological aspects.
Among them, I invested a lot of time in Jang Jae-young. After seeing Jang Jae-young, who was pitching in the bullpen, Park Chan-ho greeted him with a hug and talked a lot.
Park Chan-ho, who was closely watching Jang Jae-young’s bullpen pitching, also showed a video of Jang Jae-young’s pitching. On this day, Jang Jae-young threw more than 100 balls with 50% power.
Park Chan-ho, who was watching Jang Jae-young’s pitch for a long time, said, “The catcher’s goal is not to shout nice! It didn’t exactly go into the meat that the catcher asked for, and don’t play baseball!” he said in a strong tone.
He continued, “It’s not just that I’m happy to go in there with a meatball bang. That’s a home run in a game. You haven’t thrown two mittens in a row, have you? It’s XX,” he said.
For Jang Jae-young, a 150-kilometer fireballer, it was a straightforward remark that hit the bone like a fastball. According to Jang Jae-young, Park Chan-ho talked about his central movement from lower body to upper body and his basic posture and mindset as a pitcher. He also showed passion to demonstrate on the bullpen mound.
