“Cruel reality, we have to accept this as well.”
Professional baseball KIA is trying to make a difference. On the 6th, all foreign one-two punches were replaced. It released existing Adonis 꽁머니 Medina and Sean Anderson and recruited Mario Sanchez and Thomas Panoni. It was a bold move to leap higher. From the team’s point of view, it is said to be an inevitable choice, but it will come in a different sense for the teammates who shared the same thoughts. In particular, the two players formed a relationship with KIA for the first time this year, but they quickly permeated the team like old friends. This is why the team’s eyes were filled with regret.
Veteran is no exception. The same goes for Yang Hyun-jong. It’s already been 17 years since I joined the professional league, but it’s hard to get used to breaking up. On the 6th, he won five games (4 losses) of the season with one run in five innings against Incheon SSG, but he couldn’t smile. Yang Hyun-jong said, “I received a notification (replacement of foreigners) today. “I greeted Anderson around lunch time, and I felt heavy,” he said. “Anderson and Medina really tried hard to be a team.” I was feeling great. “I got attached to it a lot, but when the players leave in a moment like this, I think a lot,” he said.
It is also a moment to recognize again how cold the professional world is. Numerous players join and pack. In particular, the activities of foreigners are directly related to farming throughout the year. The club can’t just wait. We need to show a definite impact. Yang Hyun-jong said, “This is baseball, too. “We have to accept it,” he said. “On the other hand, I feel that this reality is cruel.” He shook his head shyly, saying, “I think my sensitivity has become sensitive as I get older.”
There is not much time to grieve. Soon new foreigners join in. Earlier on the 5th, catcher Kim Tae-gun became a new teammate through a trade. Yang Hyun-jong said, “When a new player comes, I will do my best to smile and welcome him as always. “We need to help him get into the team,” he said. “Three people, including (Kim) Tae-gun, are coming, and I will try hard to become one. “It is important to win one game right away, but the final goal is to play baseball higher for a long time,” he stressed.
