SSG Landers ‘Ace’ Kim Gwang-hyeon (35) expressed his determination ahead of the World Baseball Classic (WBC) tournament to be held in March.
On the 12th (Korean time), Kim Gwang-hyun met reporters in Vero Beach, Florida, USA, where the 2023 Spring Camp site is located, and said, “I am building my body so that I can pitch with all my strength at the WBC.”
On the 25th of last month, Kim Gwang-hyun came to the US camp as a starting point. Preparations for the WBC tournament have already begun in Okinawa, Japan in January. He is steadily building his body well. “I think I need to pay more attention,” he said. He emphasized that he must take care of his body thoroughly.”
The WBC will be held ahead of the new season of the KBO League in 2023. Kim Gwang-hyun’s determination to 메이저놀이터participate in this competition is extraordinary. He said, “Since I was young, I have always been proud of running with the Taegeuk mark. It is a truly honorable position,” he said. This is also what he wants to say to his juniors.
Kim Gwang-hyun said, “It is a great experience to go to the national team. The best players gather. He learns by watching how he practices and how he plays. I have a lot of national team experience, but there are still things to learn. I will become a player who develops one step further.”
Kim Gwang-hyun, considered the best left-hander in Korean baseball, is also cautious and humble ahead of the WBC tournament. He also has a lot of responsibility.

Kim Gwang-hyeon will be used as a bullpen, not a starter, in this WBC tournament. Manager Lee Kang-chul plans to use young pitchers as starting pitchers and turn experienced veteran pitchers into the bullpen to participate in the tournament.
Kim Gwang-hyun said, “I went out as a starter for most of my career, but I did it briefly in the United States and also experienced (bullpen) in big games in the KBO League.
