For LG, Go Woo-seok, a high-end firefighter, is out due to an injury, and Jung Woo-young is not in normal condition. In the midst of this, young pitchers such as Park Myeong-geun and Yoo Young-chan calmed the opponent’s will to pursue with their thick guts.

“When I saw Park Myung-geun throwing in high school, I strongly felt that he had a good mentality. Having such a mentality makes a big difference. You can tell by looking at his facial expression in a crisis situation. There is a clear difference between being nervous and fighting and winning. It’s because everything is expressed on the face,” said director Yeom Kyung-yeop.
He continued, “The type of pitch Park Myeong-geun needs most is the changeup. I decided that if I equipped the changeup, I would have better conditions and could succeed in the first team. I invested a lot of time in equipping the changeup during camp. Now I throw it perfectly.” .
