Even after being supported by Panama, Kiwoom’s ‘cool congratulation’ after the first win

April 15, 2023 0 Comments

 Kiwoom Heroes pitchers waited behind a billboard for the interview with Ariel Furado (Kiwoom Heroes) to end.

We shared an icebox full of water.

At the end of the interview, Hurado was drenched in water sprinkled by his colleagues.

It was a refreshing ceremony to celebrate Hurado’s first victory in the KBO League.

Hurado started in the home game against the KIA Tigers, a professional baseball game held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Guro-gu, Seoul on the 15th, and allowed 6 hits and 1 run in 6 innings.

He threw a fast ball with a maximum speed of 150 km/h and an average speed of 148 km/h, a cutter and two-seam with a speed of 140 km/h, a changeup of 130 km/h, and a curve that lowered the velocity to 122 km/h, tying up the KIA line well.

Hurado is a pitcher Kiwoom invested 1 million dollars to recruit.

However, in the KBO League debut against the LG Twins on April 4, he gave up 3 runs on 6 hits in 6 innings, and in the second match against the NC Dinos on the 9th, he gave up 5 runs on 7 hits in 5⅓ innings (3 ERA), all of which suffered a loss. 안전놀이터

Kiwoom’s colleagues also eagerly hoped for Hurado’s first victory, and congratulated them with an ice water ceremony.

With Hurado’s solid pitching, Kiwoom defeated KIA 6-1 and continued its three-game winning streak.

Hurado said, “I am happy to help continue this winning streak. I discussed the pitching plan with (rookie catcher) Kim Dong-heon before the game, and I executed it, and the result was good.” Thank you. I will do my best in my role and contribute to the team’s victory.”

On that day, 17 employees of the Panama Embassy in Korea visited the Gocheok Dome and cheered for Hurado.

These employees watched Hurado’s debut game in the KBO League on April 4 at the LG Dome in Gocheok Dome.

At the time, Hurado, who couldn’t laugh at the individual and team defeats, won his first victory on the day and had a ‘hero interview’ in front of Panama embassy staff.
