Won Tae-in is taking the mound with a secret weapon

Samsung Lions pitcher Won Tae-in is taking the mound with a secret weapon.

Won Tae-in will start the game against the LG Twins on Sunday at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul.

Won had a meaningful experience before the start. He was selected by Ryu Jung-il’s national team, Team Korea, to participate in the MLB World Tour Seoul Series, where he played two exhibition games against the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres. He broadened his horizons about baseball and had an unforgettable experience.

Won spoke to reporters at Jamsil Stadium on the 26th and talked about striking out Manny Machado (San Diego) with his signature changeup and learning a curveball from Tyler Glasno (LA Dodgers).

Won had a brief meeting with Glasno at a youth baseball clinic at the Gocheok SkyDome on April 16. At the end of the clinic, 안전놀이터 Won talked baseball with Glasnow and said, “I knew that Glasnow’s main pitch was the curveball. I asked him how to throw it, and he was very detailed, so I threw it today in practice (against San Diego). I didn’t get a hit, but it’s good to know that I tried,” he said. “I don’t know if he’ll see the article, but I just want to say thank you to Glasno,” he added.

On the 26th, Won mentioned Glasno again to express his gratitude.

“I didn’t know who was playing for the Dodgers, but when I saw the physical from a distance, it looked like Glasno. When I got closer, I saw his jersey, so I knew it was him,” he said.

“I wanted to ask him so many questions, but he answered them all and explained everything I wanted to know in great detail,” Won said. We had a short conversation in English without an interpreter. If I didn’t understand something, Glasno made it a little easier for me, so I understood almost everything. I memorized everything without recording it. I still remember everything he said because you can never hear it again,” he laughs.

Won says he heard details about the curve grip and arm swing that he wanted to learn. “His (Klasno’s) curveball (which he throws close to 100 mph) is in the 130s. It’s hard for me to throw it like his curve. Just being able to throw it as a new pitch, even if it’s one-bound after two strikes, I think it’s effective because it makes hitters think about my changeup and then realize that I have other pitches,” Won said.

Won said he will try to throw the curveball he learned from Glasno against LG.

Won went 3-2 with a 4.33 ERA in 10 games against LG last year.

The experience of facing big league hitters seems to have made a difference for Won. Previously, Won thought only of Japanese baseball, saying, “My fastball doesn’t work in the U.S. because of my fastball’s limitations,” but now he has changed his mind about the U.S.

“Hitters don’t have to throw 100 mph to hit it, 카지노사이트 추천 and sometimes they can’t hit it even if they throw 90 mph. I heard that they have good changeups, but I thought they don’t have a slow changeup like mine. Of course, it’s hard to analyze it, but I know it works, so I changed my mind. I felt like I didn’t have to keep lowering myself,” he said.
