Baek Jeong-hyun (36) of Samsung, who suffered unexpected ups and downs last year, was not good from the start of this season. 

He won two games (one loss) in exhibition games, but as you can see from his ERA of 6.55, he wasn’t good at pitching. On the 6th, his first appearance of the season, against Daegu Hanwha, he shook his head with 5 hits, 3 walks, 2 strikeouts and 5 runs in 2 innings. 

When Baek Jung-hyun showed a sluggish performance in the demonstration game, coach Park Jin-man, who pointed out, “If you throw like this, you can’t call it a 4th starter,” said about Baek Jung-hyun’s first appearance of the season, “I must have felt something. He will watch the next game,” he said. He had a message that he would change the starting rotation if he showed a sluggish appearance in the second appearance. 

Baek Jung-hyun made several attempts to escape from sluggishness. When he was good, he remembered what he looked like and watched the pitching videos of top pitchers to see how he could throw well. He also made drastic changes to get out of his swamp of sluggishness. 

He suffered his second loss of the season against SSG on the 12th, but predicted the possibility of a rebound with 4 hits (1 home run), 2 walks, 3 strikeouts and 1 run in 5 innings. He announced the return of Baekshow by showing perfect pitching until the 8th inning with one out. 

Baek Jeong-hyun, who met with reporters after the game on the 18th, said, “I continued to study to find the cause after showing a sluggish appearance in the demonstration game and the first appearance of the season. He also felt that control was important. Should I say that he lost the purpose of the ball because he was conscious of speed and tried to throw it with power? He practiced a lot to catch the target, and this part was done well in the game, so good results came out.” 

The selection of fastballs such as Kiwoom Ahn Woo-jin and Hanhwa Moon Dong-ju became the trend in the league. Baek Jeong-hyun, who competes with skill rather than strength, has a style that is opposite to them. How did he feel while watching An Woo-jin and Moon Dong-ju? 

He said,토스카지노 “He threw a fast ball and the result wasn’t good, but he threw well for each course. He looked carefully at that part. He is not only fast on the ball, but also sharp on his breaking ball and can throw it on the course he wants, so it might lead to good results.” Baek Jung-hyun said. 

Baek’s realization is also something that some pitchers who are only focused on improving his velocity should keep in mind.
