It took a long time” Fireballer’s ‘first win’ with 900 million arms… How did Woojin hyung see it

“It took a long time.”

Kiwoom ‘900 million’ Jang Jae-young (21) finally won his first win in his debut. It’s not just a win. He started out and fought well and confidently embraced the starting victory. Ahn Woo-jin (24), who is in a special relationship, also watched with a smile.

Jang Jae-young started the second game of the 2023 KBO League regular season NC and the weekday three-game series held at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 5th and showed a good pitch with 5.1 innings, 2 hits, 4 walks, 7 strikeouts and no runs.

He threw a fastball with a maximum speed of 154 km/h. He reached an average speed of 150 km/h. 70 out of 92 pitches are fastballs. He means that he was confident. Sliders (15 pitches) and curves (7 pitches) also served as a spice. He went in without hesitation and caught the NC lineup.

In the third year of his debut, he finally won his first win. It was his 40th career match. He debuted at the Gocheok KIA game in April 2021. This day was the 821st day after his debut. As a starter, it is a’1 win’ won in 9 games.

After the game, Jang Jae-young said, “It took a long time. At least now, he feels relieved as he seems to have contributed a little to the team. His starting opponent was Peddy. He is a very good pitcher. He pitched with the idea of ​​playing as evenly as possible and handing it over to the bullpen,” he said.

He continued, “In the beginning, the breaking ball didn’t go in the way I thought. He threw mostly fastballs. Senior Lee Ji-young also said, “Today’s fastball is good.” I trusted my fastball and pitched aggressively. He threw a fastball even though he knew the hitter was aiming for it. I threw it hard with the thought of inducing a beom hit. I think I gained confidence in myself,” he explained.

He signed up after receiving a contract fee of 900 million won. His first season was disappointing. I was caught on a walk. However, after the 2nd year, the 3rd year, this season, the appearance is clearly different. Walks decreased, and strikeouts increased. As a starter, he also began to digest long innings.

Eating differently made it work. “Ahead of this season, I prepared with the thought that ‘there is no place to fall anymore’. There was nothing to be afraid of, nothing to be afraid of. I threw it with a comfortable mind. You have to help the team. I just thought of that,” he pointed out.

I felt sorry for the team and felt sorry for the bullpen pitchers. “Not only senior Yanghyun who came behind me, but all the bullpen hyungs blocked it well. When I threw 3 or 4 innings, the hyungs suffered a lot. I was very sorry. I’m glad I came down after 5 innings. I said thank you to my brothers,” he laughed.

Also, Jang Jae-young said, “I have been throwing where I want in the last few games. He gained confidence. A good flow continued until today’s game. I was able to get my first win. I will continue to be a player who helps the team.”

After the first win, I thought a lot about the hyungs. “(Ahn) Woojin hyung came to mind first. My brother always said, ‘Don’t be too impatient. The first win is important for him, but he seems to be improving from game to game. He explained, “I am doing well with that alone.”

“Senior Lee Ji-young also kept telling me good things while playing. He led well. (Lee) Jeong-Hoo hyung also said, “Throw comfortably because the batters will give you points.” Also, ‘The ball is good today. Don’t try to use more power, don’t try to score points, just throw your ball.” Thanks to that, he was able to pass the 5th inning well,” he added.

After the game, I faced Ahn Woo-jin for a while. Jang Jae-young’s first win was as happy as his own. “(Jang) Jae-young prepared steadily, and recently showed a good appearance. Today we finally got a win. I feel good,” he said with a bright smile.

“I remember when I first won. I also liked it very much. Maybe Jaeyoung won’t be able to sleep well today,” he smiled again. Then, he went out to the ground and showered Jang Jae-young generously with water.

On September 20, 2018, Woojin Ahn had his first win in his debut against Gocheok Samsung. He gave up no runs in 5 innings with 5 hits, 2 walks and 7 strikeouts. This is the starting point of ‘Ace’ Woo-jin Ahn. Jang Jae-young can follow the same path.메이저사이트

Jang Jae-young said, “I definitely want to start 1-2 with Woojin hyung. I also think that Woojin can throw as much as his older brother. He thinks he has that ball. I will prepare harder,” he stressed.

“I can’t be satisfied with it right now. You have to become a better player. In the future, I want to play a leading role in winning Kiwoom together with Woojin hyung. Woojin will be the second pitcher in Kiwoom to throw 160km per hour after his older brother,” he said with a smile.
