[IS Arizona] “You can’t lose even on rock, paper, scissors”

The next-generation left-handed ace, Chang-mo Koo (26, NC Dinos), pledged to take revenge.

On the 16th (Korean time), 온라인바카라 after completing the World Baseball Classic (WBC) baseball team training held at the Tucsonkino Sports Complex in Arizona, USA, Koo Chang-mo said, “It has not been decided yet, but I will do my best no matter what game I play.” I have to win unconditionally. (Korea-Japan match) I said that I shouldn’t lose even at rock-paper-scissors. I have bad memories in Japan, so if I go out, I want to take revenge.”

In the opening game against Japan at the 2017 Asian Professional Baseball Championship (APBC) held in November 2017, Koo Chang-mo took the mound as a midfielder and lost 2 runs in 1/3 innings. He stepped on the mound in the 6th inning with a 4-1 lead, sending out the first batter Kensuke Kondo (Softbank Hawks) for a left-handed hit, then hit a superior two-run home run to the follow-up Yamakawa Hotaka (Seibu Lions). He was demolished after batting out the third batter, and the team lost 7–8.

Korea and Japan belong together in Group B of the World Baseball Classic (WBC) to be held in March. Along with China, Australia and the Czech Republic, they aim for a ticket to the quarterfinals, which is given to the second place in the group. The match between Korea and Japan, scheduled for March 10, is an important match that will determine first place in the group. Koo Chang-mo emphasized once again, “I was hit by a home run by a player named Yamakawa, and that player entered this entry again. If he goes to Japan, he wants to take revenge.”

Koo Chang-mo will play battery with Yang Eui-ji (Doosan Bears) in this tournament. Eui-ji Yang ate rice with Gu Chang-mo in NC until last year, but transferred to Doosan this winter as a free agent (FA). Since he has played so many games together, synergy effects are expected. Koo Chang-mo said, “It’s a big help to me. It’s true that I can rely on it because I matched my breath during the season, and I think I’ll be able to throw it comfortably.”

He finished adapting to the official ball (Rollings) early. Most of the products of Rawlings, the official ball of the American Major League (MLB), are evaluated as “big and slippery” among players. Compared to the KBO league official ball, the seam (stitch) is low, so it is difficult to catch.

Koo Chang-mo showed confidence, “I’ve been holding it in my hand since I was in Korea (before leaving the US camp), so there’s no big problem now. The ball itself is slippery, so it’s the biggest, but I’ve gotten used to it, so there doesn’t seem to be a big difference.” . He plans to gradually integrate into the national team. He said, “(Wearing the Taegeuk mark) makes me feel proud. It’s a bit different,” he said
