SSG ‘next ace’ Oh Won-seok (22) is learning with ‘current ace’ Kim Gwang-hyun (35). He is one of the best prospects in Korean baseball as a whole. He also has a lot of desire to do well.
Oh Won-seok, who joined in 2020, quickly rose to become a first-team selection resource in 2021, the second year. In the 2022 season, he went 6-8 with a 4.50 earned run average in 31 games and 144 innings. He played regular innings for the first time since his debut, and his strikeout-walk ratio improved significantly with 112 strikeouts and 58 walks. It was 95 strikeouts-73 walks in 2021. His first three-digit strikeout in his debut is a bonus. 온라인바카라
He is, of course, also one of the starting candidates for the 2023 season. he’s moving fast Oh Won-seok, whom we met at SSG’s campsite, the Jackie Robinson Training Complex in Vero Beach, Florida, said, “The weather is nice and it’s the best place to exercise. He came second. It’s far away, but the ballpark is so good,” he said.
He definitely has a challenge as well. Choi Ji-hoon’s stealing rate in the 2022 season is 0.241. Among 22 pitchers who filled the required innings, he was ranked 5th from behind. That means he allowed runners on second or third base quite a bit. Oh Won-seok found the answer in the slide step.
Choi Ji-hoon said, “I am still unsatisfied with bullpen pitching. The ball kept dropping. He’s often like that in the beginning. There is something to improve. The upside down doesn’t really care. He needs to sharpen his breaking ball. He should make his slide step better. He’s trying to be short. He tries to throw hard, so it gets bigger again. He keeps trying,” he explained.
“You have to do well in check or have a fast slide step. If the slide step is fast, everything is fine. I am not good at both. Isn’t it different between having a runner on first base and being on second base? It needs improvement,” he stressed.

It’s not something that will happen soon because it’s a kind of pitching form change. You have to train hard and make it better. I’m really just training. “There is nothing we can do other than training. Even on days off, I just stay in my room. After exercising, I go to bed, wake up and eat, and train at night. I want to finish well without any injuries. We will do our best to achieve what we set out to do,” he said.
Coincidentally, my roommate is Kim Gwang-hyun. He is an ace representing the KBO League who has experienced and returned to the major league stage. Just being there helps. Coincidentally, Kim Gwang-hyun is also concentrating only on training. “I share a room with senior Kim Kwang-hyun, but there is nothing to do besides training. He listens to a lot of advice too. He does turn on SNS live once in a while,” he laughed.
If you learn well from your seniors and get good grades, becoming a national representative is not a dream. Right now, there is the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games this year. “I was envious of (Choi) Ji-hoon hyung. I have been to the youth team. Taegeuk mark is always good. pride arises I really want to go out when the opportunity arises. I think a lot about wanting to prepare well and be selected.”
He was born in 2001 and is now 22 years old. This is the age at which you can go to the Asian Games national team. Show off your skills first. I know what to fix, and I am learning well. When Oh Won-seok gets stronger, SSG gets stronger too.
