Dong-Eui University pitching coach Jeong Dae-Hyeon (45), who was so fiercely called a ‘regular customer of the national team’ during his active career, said, “It’s nothing to blame for the WBC team’s sidearm Ko Young-pyo (32, KT). He praised the pitcher without it.”
After graduating from Hwasun High School and Dongguk University, Koh Young-pyo, who started his professional life at KT in 2014, won 11 wins (6 losses) in 2021, achieving his first double-digit victory in his debut, and last year with 13 wins (8 losses), the most wins in a single individual season. made a new record.
Standing tall as the best sidearm starting pitcher in the league by stepping on the 10-win mark for two consecutive years, he enjoyed the honor of being included in the 5th WBC national team list following the Tokyo Olympics.
Coach Dae-Hyun Jeong never played with Ko Young-Pyo during his active career, but he saw Ko Young-Pyo’s true face while serving as the bullpen coach for the Tokyo Olympics.
Coach Jung Dae-hyun, who recently spoke with the reporter, said, “Ko Young-pyo is a player who is beyond reproach. 스포츠토토 I saw him when he was a coach at the Tokyo Olympics, and he is a player that I rate very highly. Not only his personal performance, but also his attitude toward baseball and the preparation process before pitching are very good. Conversation When we shared it, I got the impression that he had the best mindset. Ko Young-pyo was a player who would do his part even if he was left alone,” he praised him sparingly.
Also, “I think Ko Young-pyo is a really good player in every way. His skills are also his skills, but when I saw his training attitude, I thought that this is why he is good at baseball. I was very impressed.” It will be a good opportunity.”
I also did not leave out the story about Lee Kang-cheol-ho’s other sidearm, Jung Woo-young (24). Jung Woo-young won 35 holds last year and took first place in this category. Expectations are high as a key member of the national team’s bullpen along with the king of salvation, Ko Woo-seok (25).
Coach Dae-hyun Jeong said, “Jung Woo-young is a great pitcher who throws a really powerful ball. He was selected for the first time in the national team, and even if he thinks he is confident, there may come a moment when he feels the pressure. You don’t have to worry because the coaches (Jung Hyun-wook and Bae Young-soo) are there.”
