“I will do my best to live up to expectations. I will definitely come back with good grades.”
Yang Eui-ji (36, Doosan), ‘half of the power’, unusually talked about ‘grades’. Yang Eui-ji, who returned to Doosan after 4 years (up to 15.2 billion won in 4+2 years), is not alone in the burden. However, “All the burden is my share. You can lessen the burden only by producing results.” It’s not just about Doosan’s performance.
Yang Eui-ji returned to Korea on the 12th from Australia, where Doosan held spring camp. He is in order to join the World Baseball Classic (WBC) team to be held in Tucson, Arizona, USA from the 14th (Korean time). After joining the national team, it is a tight schedule where you have to train for a day and then compete. The flight time is only 24 hours and you have to adjust to the jet lag, so it is literally a killer schedule. Still, “You have to work hard. If I can’t do it this time, it will be difficult for me to hold my head up.”
This year’s WBC is a stage where Yang Eui-ji, as an individual, must restore her honor. In 2017, he joined the adult national team for the first time at the WBC, and wore the Taegeuk mark at the Hangzhou Asian Games and Tokyo Olympics, but failed to achieve satisfactory results. It was partly because he joined the national team with small and large injuries, but he suffered a lot because his performance was not as good as he thought. The fact that Yang Eui-ji failed to advance to the second round twice in a row since the WBC in 2013 is also hurting his pride. Since he has the philosophy of “It’s entirely my fault that the pitcher can’t throw,” the decline in the national team’s performance comes as his own fault.
Yang Eui-ji, who looked back, saying, “It was difficult to quickly raise the pace,” said, “This year, my condition is better than I thought, so I will join the national team in a satisfactory state.” He did not neglect training even during his inactive period, and even played live betting at the Doosan Spring Camp held at the Blacktown International Baseball Center in Australia. He is determined that he will not hesitate to go on a full-time business trip if he develops his practical skills during the month until the opening of the WBC.
Yang Eui-ji said, “Shouldn’t (Lee) Ji-young, who is looking at Bulguk, lighten the burden on his brother. (Park) Byeong-ho (over 37) has an older brother, so he can’t even play as a designated hitter,” he thought of the team first. He said, “I have memories of working with the pitchers of the national team except for (Jeong) Woo-young, so I will help him enter the tournament in the best possible condition.”
After the WBC, we must contribute to the reconstruction of Doosan. He said, “Since I came back after receiving a lot of money, I have to raise the team ranking, which was ninth last year. The atmosphere of the team has changed, and all the juniors are working really hard, so if there are no injuries, I expect to go higher than last year.”
Restoring the honor of the national team and Doosan is the restoration of Eui-ji Yang’s value. He said, “I will come to the WBC with a sense of mission to produce results as expected by the people. I will do my best so that the baseball team can also give the WBC the joy that the soccer team presented at the Qatar World Cup. I ask for a lot of support,” he said. 온라인바카라
