Director Ryu Joong-il answers questions from reporters

Coach Ryu Joong-il of the Korean national baseball team in the Asian Professional Baseball Championship (APBC) is answering questions from reporters at an official press conference held at Tokyo Dome on the 15th.The national team will play the first round of the preliminary round against Australia at 12 noon on the 16th.

Coach Ryu Joong-il, who leads the Asian Professional Baseball Championship (APBC) 2023 national team, put his life on the line to score first in the first game.

Coach Ryu said he would not give Australia the lead in the first game of the preliminary round held at Tokyo Dome in Japan on the 16th, and said, “The key is how many innings (starter) Moon Dong-ju goes.”

At the same time, he said that in order to prevent the opponent from scoring, a '1+1 strategy' (two pitchers working together to throw long innings) could be used depending on Moon Dong-ju's pitching condition.

Coach Ryu said he hopes Moon Dong-joo can pitch at least 5 innings with 80 to 90 pitches, and added, “If things don’t go well in the beginning, I’m thinking of bringing in starting agents Oh Won-seok, Choi Seung-yong, and Shin Min-hyuk.”

Coach Ryu expressed his faith in Moon Dong-ju, even though he was concerned about the situation changing from the Hangzhou Asian Games.

Coach Ryu said, "During the Asian Games, I came in the middle of the season, so my body was fully formed, and now I have a gap of about a month at most," but added, "I look like I'm in good condition. I think I'll throw well."

Regarding Australian starting pitcher Brody Cooper-Varsalakis (22, Brisbane Bandits), he analyzed, "The ball is fast. There are not many types of pitches, and the fastball is a little high."

Cooper-Vasalakis recorded 1 win, 3 losses, 6 saves, and an ERA of 3.95 in 18 games, 27⅓ innings, and 6 saves in the National Collegiate Sports Association (NCAA) league in the 2023 season.

Yoon Dong-hee (Lotte Giants) was selected as the third hitter to connect the table setter and fourth hitter Noh Si-hwan.

Coach Ryu explained, “We decided on Dong-hee because he had experience because he was number 3 at the Hangzhou Asian Games.”

Regarding designated hitter Na Seung-yeop (Lotte), he praised him, saying, "I was playing a practice game and he felt good hitting. 카지노사이트랭크 The picture of him hitting the ball is very good."

The national team's batting order on this day was Kim Hye-seong (second baseman) - Choi Ji-hoon (center fielder) - Yoon Dong-hee (right fielder) - Noh Si-hwan (first baseman) - Moon Hyun-bin (left fielder) - Kim Do-young (third baseman) - Na Seung-yeop (designated hitter) - Kim Hyeong-jun (catcher) - Kim Joo-won ( Shortstop) is in that order.
