“Do you give strength to your big toe?”
Kiwoom Jang Jae-young is giving up his perfectionism little by little while trying to double as a pitcher. As he played intermittently as a hitter in Geelong Professional Baseball in Australia, he came to understand the hearts of batters facing pitchers with similar speed, pitch and characteristics.
In other words, Jang Jae-young’s dual wield style is a catalyst that made him realize the common truth that it is okay to play baseball with a little more put down than the dual wield itself. For the past two years, he has been struggling with his control, but he knows that it is important to look at the position of the catcher’s mitt and throw it without worrying too much about pinpoint control.
Jang Jae-young’s worries are similar to those of Kiwoom Ace Woo-jin An when he was younger. Ahn Woo-jin also had a fast ball in the early days of her debut, but her control and command were not good, so she had a lot of worries. So, she had many things that An Woo-jin wanted to say to Jang Jae-young, and it was revealed that Jang Jae-young had also consulted An Woo-jin for her worries.
On the 3rd (Korean time), Ahn Woo-jin, who met at Salt River at Talking Stick in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA, where Kiwoom’s spring camp was set up, said, “When Jae-young throws the ball, where does he look and how does he throw it? There were times when I asked in detail how I felt when I was there. When he threw the ball, he was even asked if he was powering his big toe. 스포츠토토 I never thought about it, but they asked me what to do with the big toe and what to do with the little toe. The passion for learning is really good.”
After Ahn Woo-jin established himself as an ace, he took good care of Jae-young Jang, playing catch with Jae-young Jang when he was in the first team. He said, “I always tried to play catch with him. He told me how he felt from playing catch. Even when I was playing catch, I thought about pitching and corner work, and it really helped. Concentration on the catch ball is the most important.”
