“If you don’t have an expression, you look nervous and downcast.

Yoon Young-cheol (19), a rookie left-handed pitcher for the KIA Tigers, is a player who has received a lot of attention from fans even before being nominated. He has already been called the best ace in high school since he was a student at Chungam High School, and has definitely taken the eye of fans by appearing in the popular entertainment program ‘Strongest Baseball’.

Last year, Yoon Young-cheol pitched in 15 games and recorded 13 wins, 2 losses, an average ERA of 1.66, and an on-base percentage per inning 카지노사이트(WHIP) of 0.83, making him one of the best high school aces. He was the ace who led Chungam High School’s multi-gwanwang during his sophomore year of high school. He is the only rookie among the players participating in the ongoing KIA spring camp.

Yoon Young-cheol played as the team’s third pitcher in a practice match against the Samsung Lions held at Akama Stadium in Onna Village, Okinawa Prefecture, Japan on the 1st. Yoon Young-cheol handled 22 innings neatly from the 5th to the 6th inning. His highest speed was low at 135 km, but his control ability, which came accurately to the left and right up and down courses, was excellent. On this day, Yun Young-chul threw 15 fastballs, 4 sliders, 2 changeups, and 1 curveball.

Since it was a practice game, there was no need to attach much importance to it, but Yoon Young-cheol became the winning pitcher. There was some disappointment with the World Baseball Classic (WBC) national team and practice match held in Arizona, USA, with 4 hits and 2 runs in 2 innings, but it was not that day.

Yoon Young-chul, whom we met after the game, said, “I was more comfortable than the first practice game with the national team. There was nothing awkward about him. He also threw the sign given by (Han) Seungtaek. I think I threw his body side intensively,” he said.

He had the honor of participating in spring training as a rookie. It is important for him to gradually increase his pace, but if he over paces, he may get injured. Yoon Young-cheol is also a part to be wary of.

Yoon Young-cheol said, “Rather than overdoing it now, it is more important to be steady and not get hurt. We have to focus on making 100%,” he said with strength.

“I think camp training is going well. I had a lot of difficulties at first, but the fans took good care of me, so I’m comfortable and having fun. I think my body is getting better because I am steadily doing weight training,” he smiled.

Next to Yun Young-cheol are many legendary coaches and older brothers. Pitching coach Jeong Myung-won, Yang Hyeon-jong, the ‘great pitcher’, and Lee Eui-ri, the ‘rookie king’, are a great source of strength for Yoon Young-chul.

He said, “He always said that the first pitch should be given priority. He said there was nothing wrong with being a pro. He told me to do it confidently,” he said.

Yoon Young-chul’s strong point is his thick guts. Even when his crisis comes, he calmly takes his helmet. In particular, when I see Yoon Young-cheol preparing to pitch with a smile on the mound, I think of a veteran player who has spent more than 10 years in the professional game.

Yoon Young-chul said, “On the mound, I try to throw comfortably while smiling. If you don’t have an expression, you look nervous and downcast.”
