“I can’t play baseball, but I should cut my hair short”… But I couldn’t recognize it because it wasn’t shaved

Doosan Choi Won-joon greeted SSG coach Kim Won-hyung on the ground before the SSG-Doosan match of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the afternoon of the 22nd.

From 2019 to 202, manager Kim Won-hyung worked as a pitching coach for the Doosan Bears’ first team and ate rice with Choi Won-joon. Recently, Choi Won-joon is experiencing sluggishness, so I feel sorry for him as an old teacher. So, before the game, we shared a lot of advice and discussions.

Doosan starter Choi Won-joon pitched 7 times this season and reported his first victory on May 16 against Kiwoom with 6 innings and 1 run.

Then he was on a 4-game losing streak again. In the match against SSG on the 21st, he recorded 7 hits, 2 walks and 2 runs in 5 1/3 innings, but the team lost 1-3 and became the losing pitcher without help from the team’s batting line.

Choi Won-joon, so on this day, I cut his hair short to renew my mindset. However, his teammates did not easily recognize him because of his half-shaved hair style.

When Choi Won-joon greeted coach Kim Won-hyung and the SSG players, no one noticed. However, after seeing Choi Won-joon’s hairstyle before the game, the Doosan coaches asked, “Did (Choi) Won-joon cut his hair? Did you pay for that hair cut?” blurted out the back

He was neither himself nor shaved, and his half-shaven hairstyle looked a little embarrassing.

Choi Won-joon, who cut his hair short, pitched a scoreless pitcher with 3 hits, 1 walk, and 4 strikeouts in 6 innings in the next starter match against NC on the 27th. Although he did not record a victory, he showed an ace-down pitching and succeeded in reversing the atmosphere from a losing pitcher in 4 consecutive games after his first win of the season.안전놀이터

Coach Lee Seung-yeop also praised Choi Won-joon’s good pitch, saying, “He threw a powerful ball even against left-handed batters. He showed what we expected.”

Meanwhile, Choi Won-joon will start as a starting pitcher in the match against Samsung in Daegu on the 4th. Expectations are high that Choi Won-joon’s good fight, which has changed the atmosphere by cutting his hair short, will continue today.
