Kim Gwang-hyeon (35), the national team’s ‘Teojutdaegam’, was also selected for the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) team. It’s possible if you have the skills. As the best in the pitching team, he leads his juniors. He said he felt proud. On the contrary, there was also sadness. Why?
Kwang-Hyun Kim is sweating at SSG’s 2023 Spring Camp at the Jackie Robinson Training Complex in Vero Beach, Florida, USA. He moved to Okinawa last January to start building his body early, and continues to do so in the United States.
He’s on his way. Kim Kwang-hyun, whom we met on the 12th (Korean time), said, “Not bad. He is going through the process smoothly. He has a day off tomorrow, and the next day he pitches live. And he moves to the national team convocation (US local time on the 14th). March 9th is his first WBC fight. There is still time. He wants to be in good shape so that he can do power pitching,” he explained.
“The tournament is held almost a month earlier than the start of the season. I thought that I would be chased because it was a little different바카라사이트 from my usual routine. He made a good body with his juniors in Okinawa. The weather was so nice. The weather is really nice here too. There is no hindrance. If you make it to the WBC finals, the season will begin soon after it ends. I have to focus more, and I have to make my body better.”
He is the best in the pitching team. Since he entered the Beijing Olympics at the age of 20 in 2008, he has been consistently wearing the Taegeuk mark. He is also a member of the 2009 runner-up in the WBC. In the past and now, Kim Gwang-hyun is considered the best pitcher. He is the reason he got on the national team. And now, as his eldest brother, he leads the juniors.
Kim Gwang-hyun said, “I wear the Taegeuk mark. The national team is always proud. All the players will know. He is honored just to be a national representative. It seems that he can omit the words to work hard. he should be good It will definitely be a good experience for the players. There are also players who come to the national team for the first time. I believe he will do well,” he said.
He continued, “It is said that joining the national team and playing games is a great experience in itself. Korea’s best players gather. He learns just by watching how he trains and plays. I did too. Through this WBC, I will become a player who develops one step further. I am me too, but isn’t there another player who is sincere and good at Yang Hyeon-jong? He will lead you well,” he laughed.
In addition, Kim Kwang-hyun said, “In fact, when the list came out, ‘How should I do this?’ I wanted to There are many young players. He even thought, ‘Should I volunteer to be a kkondae?’ I’ll join in and see the atmosphere. When I was young, senior Lee Seung-yeop, senior Kim Dong-ju, senior Jin Gap-yong, and senior Park Jin-man greeted me warmly. I will also help my juniors to exercise comfortably.”
Although Kim Gwang-hyun went into the interview with a bright expression, he also showed a bit of sadness. It is because of the gaze of ‘Kim Kwang-hyun again’. “To be honest, I also felt sad. I also competed with my juniors and stood here. I want to think ‘I still have a competitive edge’. I’m proud of myself, but fans keep saying, ‘Korean baseball is in place.’”
“When I hear those words, I feel sad. Still, there are many fans who support us. I pride myself on the fact that I am still competitive. Through this competition, I will show a good image so that the word ‘I’m still alive’ comes out,” he raised his voice.
