“It’s okay to play the whole game”… ‘First National Team’ LG Hold’s King’s Dauntless Aspirations

Jung Woo-young of the LG Twins was named to the 30-man preliminary roster for the WBC (World Baseball Classic) announced on the 4th. WBC final entry submissions are due February 7th. If Jung Woo-young makes the final list, he will be playing in an international competition for the first time in a national team uniform.

Jung Woo-young heard the news that he was included in the WBC reserve list after the LG New Year’s Celebration held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 4th. Jung Woo-young, who met with reporters afterward, said, “I didn’t think I would be selected, of course. But since I was the title holder last year, I thought, ‘This year will pass’ and prepared.” Last season, Jung Woo-young recorded 35 holds and became the hold king.

Jung Woo-young had a dream of becoming a national representative since his rookie days. And now that he’s on the national team’s reserve roster, that dream is on its way to becoming a reality. Jung Woo-young said, “I expressed a lot in the past and showed a lot of greed for the national team. There was also something immersed in it.” I was thinking of Ji-ra, so I was preparing in advance.”메이저사이트

Jung Woo-young picked the United States as the country he most wanted to face in the WBC. The top players said, “I’m looking forward to it. Opponents haven’t played against us. There will be an advantage as a middle pitcher.” “I want to see the American players.”

However, in order to meet the United States, they must advance to the quarterfinals. The opponent you must meet before that is Japan. Jung Woo-young said, “As for the fans, the thing I’m most looking forward to is the Japan game. I want to meet Japanese players. It would be nice if Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels) came out as a batter. I think I will receive more spotlight. Personally, I am confident.”

This WBC has a pitch limit. You can throw up to 49 practice games per game, 65 in the first round, 80 in the quarterfinals, and 95 after the semifinals. As there is a limit on the number of pitches, there is a possibility that many pitchers will be put in. Jung Woo-young said, “It’s rather good. You have to get good grades. But there is a chance that you can play many games in the process.” seemed

He then expressed his aspirations, saying, “It will be okay to participate in all games. I will dedicate myself to serving the country.”
