No. 47’ Kim Yoon-sik “I have to do as much as Sang-hoon Lee”
This is sports news on Thursday night.
A pitcher who is receiving a lot of attention from the WBC team this time is LG’s Kim Yun-shik.
As the team’s next-generation ace, he showed confidence that he would grow to the next level with LG Legend and Lee Sang-hoon’s uniform number 47.

LG pitched in the bullpen for the first time with the tournament’s official ball among pitchers participating in the WBC.
Uniform number 47, Kim Yun-sik’s pitching stands out.
Despite the regret of the team’s elimination from the playoffs last year, Kim Yun-sik, who stood out with an average ERA of 2 points in the second half, was a big gain for LG.
Kim Yun-sik, who is considered the next-generation ace by others, even wore LG legend Lee Sang-hoon’s uniform number 47 ahead of this season.
“(Senior Sang-Hoon Lee) asked if I could put a토토사이트 number on it, but he was happy to wear it and throw it with courage. . I think I did.”
There are not many successful cases of wearing number 47 after Lee Sang-hoon, but Kim Yun-sik considers even that to be a stimulus.
“I think I have this kind of motivation to do better. I think I have to do better so that I can surpass that with the thought of going with coach Lee Sang-hoon, not just my uniform number.”
Expectations for Kim Yun-shik are no exception in the national team.
Director Lee Kang-cheol conveys his opinion separately and trusts him.
“(Director Lee Kang-chul) said he wanted me to build up my body quickly, and he complimented me that my change-up improved a lot.”
As with any other national team pitcher, I’ve gotten quite used to it now as I’ve worn out the official ball.
“When I first touched (the official ball), I think I got used to it by constantly touching the ball while running or whenever I had a little free time. Since there was no grip, it was a little uncomfortable at first, but now I think I’ve gotten used to it.”
Last season, Kim Yun-sik, who emerged as LG’s new hope and became a member of the national team.
He is looking higher with a new number.
