SSG Landers submarine pitcher Park Jong-hoon (32) has been revived.
Park Jong-hoon started against Kiwoom Heroes held at Gocheok Sky Dome on the 6th and recorded 4 hits, 2 walks, 1 run and 6 strikeouts in 7 innings. He presented SSG with a 2-1 victory with Quality Start Plus pitching (pitching less than 3 earned runs in 7 starting innings).
He’s back to being at his best. Park Jong-hoon has been pitching from the lowest position among submarine-type players, but lately he hasn’t been able to throw the ball where he wants to. While he skipped a rotation, he tried to find his original self. He came to work earlier than others and practiced on the field, not in the bullpen. This is because he tried to maximize the effect by practicing in the same environment as the real battle. In this way, Park Jong-hoon was able to throw the ball from a place low enough to touch the ground.
SSG coach Kim Won-hyung said, “Park Jong-hoon tried to lower his stance a lot during the break. In the game, he would have caught his hand on the ground when throwing the ball. That means he threw the ball close to the ground. The feeling of kicking can also be different. Before that, my posture had improved a lot, but it has improved,” he said, pleased with Park Jong-hoon’s changed appearance.먹튀검증
It’s not just about lowering your stance. I also added a pause motion right before pitching. He changed his pitching form and had fun before Doosan on the 30th of last month, his first appearance. Park Jong-hoon pitched well with 6 hits, 1 walk, 1 run and 5 strikeouts in 6 innings. Director Kim smiled, saying, “The pitching form has changed. I made a motion to stop slightly before lifting my legs and shifting the center of gravity. It seems to be working well.”
Submarine type pitchers consume a lot of stamina. Therefore, as experience accumulates, the point at which the ball is thrown gradually increases. However, Park Jong-hoon worked hard to return to and maintain his good form.
Coach Kim said, “It’s physically difficult to throw from a low place. You have to bend more and bend. It puts a strain on your knees and back. As you get older, your stamina can’t stand it. He gave a thumbs up to Park Jong-hoon’s efforts, saying, “I’m doing a lot of physical exercise and even with a unique form, I’m twisting well.”
