Kiwoom manager Hong Won-ki looked at Jang Jae-young, who was training for batting at the “2023 Spring Camp” held at Salt River Field at Talking Stick in Scottsdale, Arizona, on the 2nd.
Inside the batting gauge, Jang Jae-young swung the bat vigorously. A batting ball machine and a bullpen pitcher hit the ball vigorously to throw. Jang Jae-young trained hard by turning the bat vigorously next to the batting gauge.
On Jang Jae-young’s face, it was an interesting expression, not a hard or nervous expression.
Jang Jae-young started pitching and hitting at Geelong Korea in the Australian professional baseball league. The spring camp began a full-fledged test of “Divergent Current.” Jang Jae-young plans to train as a batter for two days and as a pitcher for one day at the Anizona.
Kiwoom general manager Ko Hyung-wook recommended Jang Jae-young to pitch and hit at the same time while sending him to Geelong Korea. The move is aimed at bringing another motivation to Jang Jae-young, who has failed to live up to the nickname “900 million won” over the past two years.

Head coach Hong Won-ki said, “In the demonstration game, Jang Jae-young can play as a pitcher and hitter.” Of course, he added the prerequisite, “After watching what is done in spring camp a little more.” However, there was no doubt about Jang Jae-young’s potential.
Attention is already being paid to how Jang Jae-young, who sweats hard at the Anizona Spring Camp, will look like Ohtani of South Korea in the exhibition game.
