‘Finish Promotion’ Chulwon Jung, Doosan “Aim for a strong impact, even if it’s only 15 minutes”


Doosan Bears right-hander Chung Chul-won, 24, has stopped collecting holds for the 2023 season for the time being. He has been converted to a closer due to team circumstances.

Doosan head coach Lee Seung-yeop chose to use Chung as a backstop instead of turning to existing closer Hong Gun-hee, who has recently shown signs of strain. Through 21 days, Jung has a record of 5-3, 4 saves, 11 holds, and a 3.83 ERA in 46 games. Lee entrusted the team’s fate in the second half of the season to Chung, who had put together a solid performance with strong stuff.

Chung is a fastball pitcher who throws over 150 kilometers per hour. He has one of the strongest pitches in the Doosan bullpen. He has been coveting the closer’s job since last year, and in his second year of full-time work, he finally got his chance.

“I’ve been preparing since the beginning of August. I don’t feel too excited. Both the middle and the end are equally important. I’m trying to play with the same mindset,” he said cautiously. “I’ve always had the idea and determination to finish at Doosan one day. The opportunity came sooner than I thought,” he added.메이저사이트

“The closer always comes in at the end of the game. If you play baseball for four hours, you only play for about 15 minutes, but the spotlight is always on you because you close the game. I promised myself to be a pitcher who can make a strong impact in the last 15 minutes.”

He also expressed his desire to become Doosan’s iconic closer. “I want to be a long-time closer for a team like Oh Seung-hwan of Samsung and Ko Woo-seok of LG. I don’t think any of my brothers have been closers for as long as they have. I want to go down that path,” he said emphatically.
