A 38-year-old veteran with 21 years of experience participating in 708G said, “There is no right answer in baseball, so it’s fun.”

“There is no right answer in baseball. So it’s fun.”

Samsung Lions veteran pitcher Woo Gyu-min (38) is already in his 21st year of professional debut. Woo Kyu-min, who is constantly guarding the Samsung hill, has played in 708 professional games, recording 79 wins, 85 losses, 90 saves and 95 holds, and an average ERA of 3.94.

Even this season, although Woo Kyu-min has been shaken in the last two games, he has recorded 2 holds and is firmly guarding Samsung’s bullpen.

Woo Kyu-min made some changes to his pitching style ahead of this season. He said that while watching the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC), he saw the pitching form of Yoshinobu Yamamoto, pitcher of the Japanese national team, and had the thought, “I need to make a change.”안전놀이터

Woo Gyu-min, whom I recently met at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu, said, “I think we have to change every year. He saw Yamamoto throwing while watching the WBC and thought, ‘Should I throw it like that?’ I’ve been doing it since the trial game, and it’s okay. There are no unnecessary movements, and it is comfortable. Since there are no miscellaneous moves, he is forming a point where he can use his strength at once.”

He continued, “I always pitched to throw low. However, at some point, hitters who use the upper swing a lot are coming out. There are a lot of long hits coming out. So he’s thinking about throwing a high fastball.”

Although he is a 21-year veteran pitcher, he still studies and studies again.

Woo Kyu-min said, “There is no right answer in baseball. So funny. If there is a correct answer, isn’t there an end? There is no right answer, so I keep studying and researching.”

Except for Oh Seung-hwan and Woo Kyu-min, the Samsung mound still lacks pitchers to trust. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t have potential. Woo Kyu-min explains that he still lacks experience and lacks the temperament of a fighting chicken.

Woo Kyu-min said, “There are so many good pitchers. Not like other teams. However, it still lacks speed or experience. He has passion and is so kind. You don’t have to be good on the mound. Isn’t the fighting chicken temperament still lacking?”

At the same time, he said, “As a result, there is a part of me that loses confidence and shrinks at a decisive moment. Time will solve that part. I think you will feel a lot if you play a lot of games. It takes time,” he added.

I also added a word about Lee Ho-seong, who exudes the feeling of a large rookie. He said, “I feel like a pitcher who knows how to fight. (Won) I feel like Taein when he was a rookie. In a few years, I believe he will become a pitcher who develops like Tae-in.”
