Did you see yourself when you were in the raw stone? Park Chan-ho gave Jang Jae-young a ‘pitching lesson’ with all his heart and soul.
On the 14th (Korean time), Arizona Kiwoom Heroes spring camp. ‘Korean Express’ Park Chan-ho visited the camp to coach Kiwoom pitchers at the request of his friend coach Hong Won-ki. Park Chan-ho first watched the pitching of An Woo-jin, who became the best pitcher in the KBO League. A pitcher who has already risen to the top level. Park Chan-ho, who watched the pitching, greeted Ahn Woo-jin and praised him for his flexible pitching form. He also patted An Woo-jin on the back, saying, “Don’t be unfair,” as if he was conscious of Choo Shin-soo’s recently controversial remarks.
Park Chan-ho’s interest immediately moved to Jang Jae-young. Jaeyoung Jang. Although he is a fastball pitcher who can throw up to 157 km, he is an unfinished standby with a pitch that has not yet been refined. Park Chan-ho watched Jang Jae-young’s pitching form closely from behind.
Park Chan-ho pointed out the part where Jang Jae-young’s head was shaking back and forth. The reason was that he couldn’t control it because his head was not centered.
Park Chan-ho finally brought up the story of ‘Nolan Ryan’, who remains the best fastball pitcher in the American major leagues. Nolan Ryan (76) joined the New York Mets in 1966 and is a legend among legends who set 53 major league records at the time of retirement, including 324 wins, 292 losses, 3.19 ERA, 0.204 strikeouts and 5714 strikeouts over 27 seasons until the age of 46.
Park’s childhood idol was Nolan Ryan. He imitated his idol’s high kick and dreamed of advancing to the major leagues. However, Park Chan-ho was fast in Gongju High School, but his control was unrefined. The news that Park Chan-ho, who had not received much attention because of his peers such as Lim Seon-dong, Jo Seong-min, and Jung Min-cheol, joined the Los Angeles Dodgers in January 1994 while attending Hanyang University, was even more shocking.
Park Chan-ho was included in the opening roster of the major leagues for the first time in 1994, and seemed to be on a winning streak, but soon had to go down to the minor leagues. After nearly two years in the minor leagues, he succinctly changed his high-kick pitching form and improved his control, finally achieving success as a major leaguer. 카지노
Park Chan-ho also received special lessons from Nolan Ryan, his idol during his major league career. He has an anecdote where he invited Ryan to his house, had dinner with him, and even took night classes.
That’s how the fastball pitcher’s know-how is handed down. Park Chan-ho became Jang Jae-young’s teacher this time. Park Chan-ho directly reproduced the surprised Ryan’s pitching form in front of Jang Jae-young. He emphasized that when he winds up, he should keep his chin all the way in line with the center line without lifting his chin. Along with the explanation that it is because the center does not shake left and right and the control is caught.
After the bullpen pitching, Jang Jae-young showed Park Chan-ho a video taken with his mobile phone and continued to explain. The passion of Park Chan-ho, who transformed into a tweezers instructor, was hot.
