I was excited, but on the other hand, I had a heavy responsibility. Pro baseball LG catcher Park Dong-won (33) is expected to have a busier winter.
Park Dong-won moved from Kiwoom to KIA through a trade at the beginning of last season. He qualified as a free agent after the season ended. He transferred to LG for a total of 6.5 billion won (down payment of 2 billion won and annual salary of 4.5 billion won) over 4 years.
He originally got advice from Yoo Kang-nam, who was the master of LG’s homeroom. Yoo Kang-nam made his debut at LG in 2011 and played as a one-team man. After the 2022 season, he moved to Lotte as a free agent (4 years total of 8 billion won). 먹튀검증 Park Dong-won said, “I went to the same exercise center as Gangnam during the off-season. I met him once by chance, and Gangnam told me a lot about the LG pitching staff.” He said, “Honestly, they said it was comfortable because the pitchers were so good. There are many good pitchers, so he told me that I would be able to do it comfortably,” he said. I have received a lot of balls from pitchers, so I should know that well.”
LG ranked first in team ERA for the previous two consecutive seasons. In 2021, 3.57 and 2022, 3.33, built a fortress. Park Dong-won said, “When we met LG as the opposing team, it was difficult to turn over if our team was losing. Pil Seung-jo was so good,” he said. Thanks to these parts, I think LG has become much stronger.”
He needs to lead the pitching staff well in the new season and make the mound more solid. Park Dong-won said, “When spring camp begins, I try to receive a lot of pitchers’ balls. KIA also played catch with the pitchers and tried to figure it out quickly,” he said. You can’t catch the ball though. I am a little nervous, but I have time to learn the strengths and weaknesses of pitchers, so I will prepare better.”
Both LG and Park Dong-won are thirsty for victory. LG’s last win was in 1994. Park Dong-won has never been to the top. He said, “I hope this year will be my first win and LG’s first win in 29 years. Personally, I want to win a lot in the games I play in. I will do my best to contribute to the victory.”
