What interests you about baseball? Is there a background to taking the pitching position?

My father was a college baseball player. 

I think that's why they wanted me to continue my father's dream. Of course, I like baseball too.

It helped me a lot. 

It was fun throwing a ball when I was young. That's how I naturally became a pitcher. 

Of course, I experienced other positions when I was a student. Even when I watched professional players games on TV, I couldn't see the batter.

Instead, I look closely at the pitchers pitching form. 

I followed what I saw and kept researching. 

 

When a pitcher battles alone with many batters, there will be a great deal of pressure. Do you have any special know-how to overcome this pressure?

There is bound to be a burden in any position. But I think it's more important to have fun than to feel burdened every time. 
Because I have to do it eventually. It's my job to embrace the burden and take it with me. 

What are some key things to consider as a baseball player?

I think taking care of your body is the most important thing. 
No matter how high your ability or physicality is, it's useless if you're sick. 
Even if you learn something, it's vital to take care of your body. Of course, no matter how prepared you are, you can't expect to get hurt. But you always have to take care of your body.
Actually, I had to hit it when my form shot up last year, but my body couldn't keep up because of the injury. 
I had a hard time mentally and I was really sad. 

Do you have any memorable baseball moments?

My father's dream when he was young was to become a youth representative. Unfortunately, he didn't achieve his dream.
When I was in my second year of high school, I was selected for the national youth team. 
I called my father right away and told him. I found out later that my father was driving. You said you stopped the car after the call and cheered outside. 
I still remember that moment. 

What was the product that helped with baseball?

It was helpful that the L20 leggings strengthened the muscles and had a taping effect.
I especially liked the C2 calf protector. 
There are times when a pitcher needs instant speed, and he taped it with pressure, so I was able to benefit. 
So I tend to wear it during the game rather than during training. 

What is your goal for the future?

Last year, I three it without knowing anything, so I think I didn't a good job.
The more I know about baseball, the most I don't know. But I can't help but study. 
This year, I'll study more and get used to it. 
I want to show the positive side of me again.
