Jang Jae-young (Kiwoom)’s attempt at the spring camp dual wield was eventually revealed as a strategic way to succeed as a pitcher. Jang Jae-young has a firm desire to succeed as a pitcher. And Kiwoom is doing its best to support Jang Jae-young’s success. 안전놀이터
Catcher Lee Ji-young, who receives the ball from Jae-young Jang, and Ace Woo-jin An, who had a lot of trouble with Jae-young Jang, are also interested in and anticipating Jae-young Jang. An Woo-jin and Lee Ji-young recently wished Jang Jae-young success at Kiwoom’s spring camp, Salt River at Talking Stick in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA.
Ahn Woo-jin said that Jang Jae-young once asked if he was giving strength to his big toe when pitching, and advised that he needed to get away from his overly sensitive personality. Lee Ji-young also said in an interview on the 3rd, “I think it will get better if you empty your mind.”
In particular, Ji-Young Lee is the catcher who has received the most balls from Jae-Young Jang. “I look forward to Jaeyoung. Didn’t he pitch well in Geelong Korea? In fact, he threw that well last year as well. Depending on what Jaeyoung does, our team could be different this year.”
Actually it is. Kiwoom was joined by Ahn Woo-jin, Eric Yokishi, and Ariel Hurado, who also uses fast balls. Several players are competing for the 4th and 5th starting positions. Han Hyun-hee (Lotte) and Jung Chan-heon (FA) have been eliminated, but it is best if Jang Jae-young can ultimately settle down. The weight can go up dramatically. For Kiwoom, who is aiming for the presidency, Jang Jae-young is one of the variables.
Lee Ji-young said of Jang Jae-young, “Woo Jin-i and Jae-young have different points at which the ball comes out. Jaeyoung is completely overthrown. He has a high RBI, so the angle of the curve or breaking ball is good.” Jang Jae-young’s breaking ball quality is still not highly regarded, but Lee Ji-young had a different idea.
Lee Ji-young said, “Woo-jin also changed as he continued to experience. Jaeyoung will get better as he gets older. If he clears his mind a bit, he’ll be fine. He was good in Geelong, but he was comfortable there, and it’s a little different here (KBO League) that there is press for grades. Still, as experience and know-how accumulate, the performance shown in Geelong will emerge.”
In fact, wouldn’t Jang Jeong-seok, the father of KIA general manager, want Jang Jae-young’s resurrection the most? Jang Jae-young said, “His father is in Gwangju, and I didn’t see him even when he was in Australia.” However, over his son’s double job as a pitcher, his father said, “If the club gives it to you, work hard while being grateful. He will definitely have something to gain.”
