“It’s natural that I couldn’t go to WBC” Kim Seo-hyun’s social media scandal… Native ace ‘severe self-criticism’
There is no regret. No wonder I didn’t go to the WBC.”
The atmosphere at Hanwha Spring Camp cannot be good. Rookie Kim Seo-hyun’s social media scandal and suspension of training for three days. And on the 11th (Korean time), he made a surprise comeback and apologized. The older brothers, leaders, and even the front desk are about to bow their heads to the youngest’s accident.
In particular, local ace Kim Min-woo even confessed that he had something he wanted to say to Moon Dong-ju and Kim Seo-hyun, but he kept a reasonable distance in consideration of the burden on the parties involved. On the one hand, this spring camp is a time of desperate reflection for Kim Min-woo.
Kim Min-woo recently said, “I have no regrets over the fact that not a single Hanwha player will be selected for the WBC team at Bellbank Park in Mesa, Arizona, USA, at Hanwha’s spring camp. It’s only natural that I can’t go. Park스포츠토토 Se-woong (Lotte) and Won Tae-in (Samsung) were steady, but I was in a bad shape last year.”
Kim Min-woo recorded an average ERA of 4.36 with 6 wins and 11 losses in 29 games in the 2022 season. He was the main character in the starting game for the second consecutive year after the appointment of manager Carlos Subero, but he lacked the real sense of intimidation. I am well aware that this score is in the middle.
Kim Min-woo said, “I experienced the national team for the first time in Tokyo (2020 Olympics), and it was an inexplicable feeling. I want to go to more international competitions. I don’t know many players from other teams, but when I played against many people, it was definitely different. People who are good at baseball watched and learned how to play. It is a pity that there is no such opportunity.”
I have high hopes for the opening match selection for the third year in a row. Kim Min-woo said, “I haven’t been notified yet. The selection for the opening game is too big. I want to do it when the opportunity arises. In 2021, there was a lot of tension and pressure. 2022 was a little better. If I can decide, I don’t want to concede. It would be the same for Jang Min-jae hyung and Dong-ju.”
Kim Min-woo recorded 14 wins, 10 losses and an average ERA of 4.00 in 29 games in 2021. In the opening game against KT on April 4, it was a no-decision with 4 hits (1 home run), 3 strikeouts, 1 walk and 2 runs in 5 innings. On April 2, 2022, the opening game against Doosan was a losing pitcher with 8 hits (1 home run), 2 strikeouts, 2 walks and 6 runs (5 earned) in 5 innings. If possible, I would like to be the winning pitcher in the opening game against Kiwoom on April 1 this year.
He tries to achieve goals that are sufficiently achievable. changed his lifestyle. Kim Min-woo said, “I have a personality that is under a lot of stress, and I have a lot of thoughts. In order to reduce that, he tries not to think about the upcoming events as much as possible.”
In that sense, he doesn’t dwell on multipliers that he can’t achieve by himself. Kim Min-woo said, “It’s a good title, but innings are important. It is important to digest more innings than last year. Even if I don’t win, I want to throw 170 innings.” The most innings in a season is 163 in 2022.
Concentrate on doing your part consistently. Kim Min-woo said, “Recently, I was the only full-time selection at Hanwha. That’s why our team’s promising pitchers can get a little more chance than other teams. I think foreign pitchers and I will create synergy if we keep our positions and young pitchers learn something from watching. Whether the team does well or not, the most important role for me is to run a full season in my position.”
