Koh Young-pyo of the WBC (World Baseball Classic) 슬롯사이트 national team played a big role in the evaluation match against NC held at Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona on the 17th (Korean time).
Ko Young-pyo took the mound as the second pitcher in the top of the second inning, following Kim Gwang-hyun in the first inning. Before the game, the pitchers of the WBC national team decided to pitch 20 before and after regardless of the out count.
Ko Young-pyo allowed lead hitter Kim Joo-won to hit left, but Seo Ho-cheol was treated as a double kill and Oh Jang-han struck out. Pitch count remained as he handled three batters with 10 balls.
Afterwards, he caught An Joong-yeol and Han Seok-hyeon with 6 balls and caught 5 out counts with 16 balls. Koh Young-pyo had the best balance and control among the pitchers on the mound that day.
After meeting with the players after the game, Ko Young-pyo headed to first base instead of dugout.
In the audience, Young-Pyo Ko’s elementary school alumni along with his wife and children were there to support him. He talked for about 10 minutes with a friend who came to Phoenix, a two-and-a-half-hour drive away.
The late Young-pyo, who greeted his friend’s wife and children in a friendly way, delivered his signed ball as a gift and had a good time, albeit for a while. Elementary school alumni also finished with greetings of support for Go Young-pyo’s propaganda.
After parting ways with his friend, Koh Young-pyo said that he also thought of his son, who was born last November. Ko Young-pyo got married in 2021 and had a son in November 2022.
Koh Young-pyo said, “I faced a hitter for the first time this year, and it was better than I thought. I think my command was good and I am satisfied.”
Regarding the official ball, he said, “The horizontally moving curve and slider feel slippery. I throw the changeup more comfortably. The two-seam also has more movement than I thought.”
