“I think everyone dreams big. I hope it goes well like Ryu Hyun-jin.”
The best pitcher in the KBO League last year was An Woo-jin of the Kiwoom Heroes. For the first time as a full-time starter, he had a career-high season with a 2.11 earned run average with 224 strikeouts in 30 games, 15-8, 196 innings.
An Woo-jin, who ranked first in earned run average, strikeouts, and innings, also enjoyed the honor of winning the Golden Glove for the first time in his life at the KBO Golden Glove Awards. It was truly an unforgettable year.
An Woo-jin is not complacent. They are warming up to show ‘Monster Mode’ this year as well. Ahn Woo-jin, who has been working hard on personal training recently, emphasized the importance, saying, “(Last year) I definitely saw the effect of exercising. Former LG Twins senior Kim Kwang-soo, who runs the 54K Sports Training Center, teaches me a lot of tips as a senior.” .
He continued, “It is also a rehabilitation center, but there is a gauge for throwing the ball and hitting it with a bat. I like that part because I have to throw the ball.” I also told
Ahn Woo-jin’s team, Kiwoom, will hold a spring camp on the 29th in Scottsdale, Phoenix, Arizona, USA. The ‘selection build-up’ that started last year at spring camp was the root of experiencing a fantastic season.
Ahn Woo-jin is well aware of the importance of this spring camp. “The most important thing is not to over-pace. I will improve my condition little by little by making my body better without getting hurt in the spring camp. I can play baseball based on what I experienced last year. I will put myself in 100% condition. I want to go to the opening game.”
2023 is the year of the cat. Ahn Woo-jin is attracting attention as the year-of-the-rabbit star that will shine this year. He stands out among the aces born in 1999. Ahn Woo-jin evolves beyond the limit. What kind of wishes does he wish for in the year of the rabbit?
◆ Question to Rabbit players
Q. This year is my year!
“Team championship is the first rabbit I want to catch. The other thing is to have a season without injury. Excluding last year’s performance, there has been no season where I have had a good performance. I felt that good grades would follow. Instead of dwelling on grades, I think good grades will follow if I do without injuries like last year.” 바카라
Q. Kyoto Three Caves (狡兎三窟), the clever rabbit digs three burrows. My three keywords this season.
“Last season, I learned how to deal with hitters and how to count. I want to pick two keywords. The last keyword is to exercise hard like last year. Last season, I definitely saw the effect of exercising during the off-season. You have to work hard to avoid getting injured.”
Q. 12 years from the next year of the rabbit, what do I want to be like?
“It’s still too far in the future, and I don’t think I have 12 years left, so I haven’t imagined it in detail. However, I hope that I will develop in all aspects and become a mature person. I think everyone dreams big. I hope it goes well like senior Ryu Hyun-jin. (Major League) is every baseball player’s dream.”
