This is the nursery and confidence of LG Twins pitcher Jung Woo-young, who was selected for the WBC (World Baseball Classic) national team and wore the Taegeuk mark for the first time in his life.
Jung Woo-young won the title of “national team” for the first time in his life when he entered the WBC final entry list announced on the 4th. Jung Woo-young, who attended the LG New Year’s ceremony that day, did not hide his anticipation, saying, “Because it is a national team that I have dreamed of, it will be very new.”
Jung Woo-young’s ball, which is a sidearm but has a speed of 150 km/h, is evaluated to be competitive on the international stage. This competition is an opportunity to confirm and publicize its competitiveness. Jung Woo-young said, “I think it would be advantageous because he is a middle pitcher. He is a top-class player, so I am looking forward to competing with them.”
Jung Woo-young, who was asked about the player he wanted to play against, pondered and said, “I want to see the American players, but first of all, the fans do too, and the one I look forward to the most is the Korea-Japan match. I want to meet the Japanese players first.” Korea and the U.S., which will play the first round in Tokyo, Japan and Miami, U.S., respectively, must reach at least the semifinals to face off. 토토사이트
The ‘old enemy’ Japan, organized in the same Group B, will meet in the second match of the qualifiers on March 10th. Jung Woo-young, who said, “I hope Shohei Ohtani will come out as a hitter,” said, “I think the Korea-Japan match will receive a lot of spotlight at this WBC, but I am personally confident,” and showed enthusiasm for the Korea-Japan match, which could be burdensome.
Jung Woo-young said, “There are many right-handed hitters in Japan.” “At the last Tokyo Olympics, (the late) Woo-seok hit a double hit by Tetsuto Yamada hitting the fence. I think it’s what I thought,” he said, bringing a laugh.
There is also a big match between Korea and Japan, and I hope this WBC will help the baseball box office. Jung Woo-young, who is close to the national soccer team member Jung Woo-young, who is of the same name, said, “I was not only envious of Jung Woo-young, but the whole nation loves soccer, so I thought that baseball would be enthusiastic like that.” I thought that I would like the people to like baseball more after producing results.”
