When you have faults, do not fear to abandon them


It’s okay to fail. Fight like Park Se-woong!” Even in the third year, ‘ball ball ball’… The potential of 21-year-old Kim Jin-wook 

“It can be scary. It’s scary. You have to break through while thinking ‘it’s okay to fail’.”

In the first appearance of the season, it was ‘ball ball ball’ again. As soon as he got to the mound, he brought the bases loaded crisis upon himself. Gangwoo Cold saved it.

This is the story of Lotte Giants Kim Jin-wook (21). He was called the best monster pitcher in high school, a super rookie, and a candidate for the rookie award. However, he became synonymous with ‘ball quality’ before he knew it.

Chronic insecurity is a problem. It was in the second year of Gangneung High School that Kim Jin-wook received the ‘High School Choi Dong-won Award’. In 21 games, he had a remarkable record of 11 wins and 1 loss with an earned run average of 1.58. It was a time when he was overrated by Oh Won-seok (SSG Landers), who was one year older, or Lee Eui-ri (KIA Tigers), who was the same age as him.

Did the change to a dynamic pitching form to increase speed after joining the pros in the 3rd year of high school became poison? He was faced with a grim reality. Following the rookie award, Eui-ri Lee rose to the ranks of pitchers with 10 wins. Oh Won-seok continues to grow every year and is praised as ‘Post Kim Kwang-hyun’.

On the other hand, Kim Jin-wook has been highly anticipated for the past two years, but has not shown anything remarkable. There were brilliant moments like the NC Dinos match (7 innings, 1 run, 10K), which was the first game of last year, and the LG Twins match on May 1 (6 innings, no score), but it soon collapsed in the next game, revealing a loss of control.

In the first season of his debut, after moving to the bullpen, he found stability with 4 wins, 3 losses, and an ERA of 3.29 with 8 holds. He was one of the supporting characters in the counterattack in the second half. However, his sluggishness is getting longer after the second half of last year. He was replaced again this year with a record of 3 walks in ⅓ innings in the first appearance of the season.

Rain and cold weather could be the reason for the sluggishness. However, the problem is that this kind of jegu hunting continues.

Command towers often say to new pitchers, “Even if you get beaten, fight. Don’t be afraid of defeat and fight.” The same goes for Lotte manager Larry Sutton. met on the 5th

Coach Sutton said, “It’s the same for all young players, not just Kim Jin-wook. It’s scary when you face obstacles. But you have to know how to break through. You can learn more when you have the mindset, ‘It’s okay to fail.’ “That’s how you can succeed as a baseball player,” he emphasized.

Coach Sutton cited the example of Park Se-woong, who recorded 3 runs (2 earned) in 4⅔innings the previous day, but struggled every inning in bad weather and caught 8 strikeouts.

“A good fastball that was close to the body became a hit when the bat broke. It was ‘Did I throw it wrong?’ I shouldn’t think about it. Even if I throw perfectly, there are areas that I can’t control. I have to have an aggressive mentality that is satisfied with itself.”

Manager Sutton said,스포츠토토 “All pitchers go through growing pains. Sometimes I give encouragement to Jin-wook Kim, and sometimes I give him advice with love. In the case of American baseball, minor leaguers often grow after gaining 3-6 years of experience. Jin-wook Kim He is still a young player. He is in the process of growing,” he repeatedly emphasized.
