Ahn Woo-jin is now a really young player looking at his mid-20s. Even so, he has already become the best pitcher in Korean baseball. he is definitely a genius But he was an insatiable genius.
On the 2nd, before the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League regular season match between Kiwoom Heroes and Hanwha Eagles, Ahn Woo-jin met in Gocheok. He recalled two years ago while having a conversation about the starting game for the home opener the day before.토토사이트
What Ahn Woo-jin thought of two years ago was the Samsung Lions match on April 4, 2021. At that time, he started and recorded 4 hits, 3 walks (1 walk, 2 walks), 4 strikeouts and 3 runs (1 earned) in 3 innings, and came down from the mound without completing 5 innings.
The reason Ahn Woo-jin remembered the match against Samsung two years ago was because it was similar to the pitch in the last home opener. He had a good fight against Hanwha on the 1st with 5 hits, 2 walks, 12 strikeouts and no runs in 6 innings. The results were not lacking, such as becoming the record holder for the most strikeouts in the opening game. However, he only had 6 innings while throwing 112 balls, especially the 1st and 2nd innings, which were somewhat difficult.
An Woo-jin said, “I remember when I started in the match against Samsung two years ago. It was the same as yesterday (the 1st). At that time, too much power went into it, so I threw all the fastballs and sliders hard, but there were many full count situations.” “I remember that I only threw 3 innings. Even so, he threw almost 70 pitches (the number of pitches by Ahn Woo-jin at the time was 75)”.
It was amazing. It was a game with 6 scoreless innings and 12 strikeouts. Still, he felt inadequate. What was even more surprising was An Woo-jin’s memory. He looked back exactly at his performance two years ago and compared it to his performance two years later. It is never a matter of course. That’s how much An Woo-jin could see how much he had been copying his games.
Ahn Woo-jin said, “I always try to take notes and look back on the games I threw. If you make notes about various situations, such as when you threw well, when you struggled, and when you lost a run, you can cope with the same situation later. “I can catch hitters more easily than before,” he said. There is also a brief note. I don’t write it down every day, but I still try to reproduce it.”
Ahn Woo-jin is one of the few true geniuses born in Korean baseball. He has stamina and a strong shoulder that can handle long innings while freely throwing fastballs in the mid-to-late 150km range. Even if you look at the innate part, Ahn Woo-jin was able to become the best.
However, Ahn Woo-jin was a genius who worked hard. Even though he became the best at a young age, he was not drunk with success. He constantly pushed himself and tried to find a point of improvement. He had an innate talent that others could not have, and his acquired efforts were of the highest level.
He can see the big parts just by looking at the small parts. It was a short time to see why Ahn Woo-jin became the best pitcher in Korean baseball at such a young age. He could also see that his hard work behind the scenes eventually led to splendor on the mound. he’s a hard working genius
