SSG, Live Pitching with Advance Experience of Automatic Ball Judgment

SSG, Live Pitching with Advance Experience of Automatic Ball Judgment and Pitch Clock

Professional baseball SSG Landers performed live pitching in an environment where they could experience the automatic ball judging system (ABS) and pitch clock in advance.

SSG said on the 14th, “On the 13th local time, the pitchers held their first live pitching at the Biro Beach Spring Camp in Florida, USA.”

They added, “We experienced the pitch clock in advance by installing timers behind the catcher and on the center fence in the outfield. 바카라사이트

“While checking the tracking data, I also felt the difference between the strike zone judged by humans and the zone judged by machines.”

Korean professional baseball will introduce ABS from the opening game of this season, and the pitch clock will be piloted in the first half of the year.

SSG In order for players to quickly adapt, an ‘environment suitable for the new regulations’ was established.

On this day, Seung-won Moon, Min-ho Park, Seung-geon Baek, Byeong-hyun Jo, Sang-jun Seo, Min-jun Choi, Doo-sol Han, and Geon-wook Lee took the mound.

Seung-won Moon threw 20 balls and recorded a maximum fastball speed of 143 km/h.

He said, “It was fun to pitch in a situation where there was a batter after a long time.

“I’m not very satisfied, but it wasn’t a bad pitch, and it’s going smoothly in the direction I aimed for,” he said.

“I focused on control rather than velocity and checked by throwing all possible pitches at a 70-80% level.”

The pitcher who pitched live that day Seo Sang-jun, who threw the fastest ball at 149 km/h, said, “I prepared a lot from last year to this camp, but I felt lacking in this pitching.

Lee Seung-woo Calls for the Abolition of the K-League Victory

Lee Seung-woo Calls for the Abolition of the K-League Victory Allowance Limit… “Nowhere else in the World”

Lee Seung-woo, the leading striker of professional soccer K-League 1 Suwon FC, publicly stated that the win allowance cap system should be abolished.

On the 14th, Seung-Woo Lee argued through the Korea Professional Footballers’ Association (Players’ Association) that restrictions on victory allowances should be removed at the league level and left to an ‘autonomous area.’ 온라인카지노

Seungwoo Lee said, “For players and support staff with low salaries and less seniority, the victory allowance is an important reward,” and added, “Rather than setting a cap, I think it would be better for each club and the players to discuss and decide freely.”

He then added, “There is no place in the world that sets winning allowances uniformly,” and added, “I hope this will be made public for the sake of the players’ rights.”

According to the Players’ Association, the upper limit of victory allowance for K League 1 is 1 million won and for K League 2 is 500,000 won.

The players’ association believes that these restrictions are particularly detrimental to low-income players.

The players’ association said that not only Lee Seung-woo but also many players wanted to improve the system, and voiced that it should be changed to a form in which each club pays autonomously according to the situation.

The Korea Professional Football League set an upper limit on victory allowances through the board of directors in December 2020 with the aim of reducing the club’s financial burden due to the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19).

Previously, most K-League clubs paid a win-conditional allowance of up to 5 million won to as little as 2 million won per game in addition to basic salary and appearance allowance.

There was also a practice of paying win-conditional bonuses for each important game that were not specified in the contract.

At the time, the board of directors established disciplinary regulations, such as imposing a fine of up to 1 billion won on K League 1 clubs and up to 500 million won on K League 2 clubs that violate the cap regulations.

In March of last year, Lee Seung-woo also argued through social media that the K League’s mandatory participation rule for players under the age of 22 (U-22) was unreasonable.

Lee Seung-woo, a member of Spain’s prestigious FC Barcelona youth team, said in Spanish, “I will never understand the ‘U-22 rule’ in Korea.

Why is there no ‘over 35 rule’? What country in the world has this rule? “He wrote.

Lee Seung-woo, who had always played only in Europe and entered the K-League by joining Suwon FC in 2022, was given the vice-captain position ahead of the 2024 season.

Ryu Hyun-jin, Who is at Risk of Injury, Should Sign a One-Year Contract

Former MLB General Manager: “Ryu Hyun-jin, Who is at Risk of Injury, Should Sign a One-Year Contract”

“You can try to trade from a weak team… Resources to strengthen rotation for a strong team as well.”

There has been advice that Ryu Hyun-jin (36), who is considering his destination for the 2024 season, should sign a short-term one-year contract with an American professional baseball (MLB) club.

Although Ryu Hyun-jin returned from an elbow injury in August of last year and proved his competitiveness, he cannot yet completely erase concerns about his durability. 카지노사이트

Ryu Hyun-jin pitched 52 innings in 11 games in the 2023 season, recording 3 wins, 3 losses, and an average ERA of 3.46.

Jim Borden, who served as general manager of the Cincinnati Reds and Washington Nationals, predicted the destinations of the top 10 free agents (FA) in a column for The Athletics on the 14th (Korean time).

Borden ranked Ryu Hyun-jin 8th among all unsigned free agents.

Borden said, “Hyun-Jin Ryu left a deep impression by giving up 3 or less runs in 9 of the 11 games he started after returning,” adding, “He went 5 innings in 6 games and went 6 innings once.”

He went on to explain, “The speed of the fastball was 87 to 89 miles per hour, and the hitting percentages of the changeup and cut fastball were 0.276 and 0.238, respectively.”

Borden said, “Ryu Hyun-jin looks healthy,” but predicted, “Due to the risk of injury, he will have to accept a one-year contract.”

At the same time, he analyzed, “It may be wise to sign with a team that has little chance of winning,” and “If he shows the same pitching as last year in the first half of the 2024 season, he may be traded to another team.”

Candidate destinations mentioned were the Pittsburgh Pirates, Washington Nationals, and Los Angeles Angels, where Bae Ji-hwan is located.

If Ryu Hyun-jin fully utilizes his value as a trade item, he can change into a strong team uniform in the second half of the season.

In addition, Borden said, “Even among teams with a high probability of winning, if multiple starting pitchers suffer from injuries, age, or skill issues, the rotation can be strengthened by recruiting Ryu Hyun-jin,” citing the New York Yankees, Milwaukee Brewers, and St. Louis Cardinals as examples.

Meanwhile, Blake Snell and Jordan Montgomery, who are considered higher-ranking free agents than Ryu Hyun-jin, are likely to head to the Yankees and Texas Rangers, respectively, Borden analyzed.

Klinsmann, The Price of not Finishing First in the Group

Asian Cup Only Two Days of Rest Until the Quarterfinals… Klinsmann “The Price of not Finishing First in the Group”
