Ryu Hyun-jin, who visited the All-Star Game for the first time in 12 years, said, “There used to be a lot of seniors.”

Regret and satisfaction mixed over first half results “I had a strong desire to show something”

Ryu Hyun-jin returns to All-Star Game after 12 years

Ryu Hyun-jin (37, Hanwha Eagles), who attended the KBO All-Star Game for the first time in 12 years, laughed in vain at the speed of time passing.

In 2012, his 7th year as a pro, he pitched 2 perfect innings as a starting pitcher in the Western League and received the Outstanding Pitcher Award, and advanced to the Major League Baseball (MLB) the following year.

And Ryu Hyun-jin, who returned to the KBO League this year, was selected as the starting pitcher for the Nanum All-Star Game, beating out his rival Yang Hyeon-jong (KIA Tigers).

Ryu Hyun-jin, whom we met at Incheon SSG Landers Field where the All-Star Game will be held on the 6th, said, “In the past, there were many seniors, but now I don’t see many seniors above me, so I feel like times have changed a lot,” and laughed in vain.

Ryu Hyun-jin said that he did not prepare a separate performance, but said, “I came here to have fun today. It will be difficult to pitch at full strength since I pitched two days ago, but I hope to block the game without giving up any runs.

It seemed like he had mixed feelings of regret and satisfaction about the first half of this season, when he had 5 wins, 5 losses, and an ERA of 3.62 in 16 games.

Ryu Hyun-jin had a poor start with an ERA of 5.21 in 7 games through April after the opening, but found stability in May with an ERA of 3.27 in 4 games, and has been showing off his power since June with an ERA of 1.97 in 5 games.

The cumulative season ERA soared to 8.36 on April 5th, but dropped to 3.62 after the game against KT Wiz on the 3rd of this month (2 runs in 7 innings).

Ryu Hyun-jin looked back, saying, “There were a lot of regrettable games (in the beginning),” and “I came back after 12 years and was so eager to show something that I tried to fight with all my might, so I think I gave up a lot of runs.

He expressed satisfaction, saying, “I think the moment I let my guard down, I felt more comfortable and my performance improved. In the end, I think I found my true self.”

Regarding the teamwork with Hanwha Eagles coach Kim Kyung-moon, who took office last month, he said, “I think there will be more demands (on the players) than when I was with the national team (at the 2008 Beijing Olympics). I think the players will have to adjust well and follow along.” 카지노사이트 추천
