SSG Romero-Mccarty’s first live pitching, “Impressive direct ball, can be put into practice”
SSG Landers foreign pitchers Eni Romero and Kirk McCarty conducted their first live pitching at Spring Camp in Florida, USA on the morning of the 19th (local time).
Live pitching is a training in which pitchers pitch in a situation similar to a real game with a batter standing in the at-bat, and it is mainly conducted during spring camp to enhance the sense of practice.
Romero, who started live pitching first, threw a total of 29 pitches, including a fastball, slider, and two-seam, and his highest velocity was 147 km.메이저놀이터
McCarty then checked various pitches, including a 151km/h fastball, cutter, curveball, slider, and fork. He threw a total of 24 pitches.
Pitching coach Jo Ung-cheon, who watched the live pitching, said, “Both players are picking up the pace. Romero felt the power of his fastball from a high RBI, and he seems to be improving his condition as he goes through camp. McCarty built his body enough to throw the ball in real life, and both the fastball and the breaking ball were close to perfection.”
Romero, who finished his first live pitching, said, “I checked the overall pitch through live pitching. During today’s pitching, the movement of the two-seam was the most satisfactory, and I pitched with care about the low-course control to induce the ground ball. He expressed his determination, saying, “I will make perfect physical condition through the remaining matches and practice matches.”
McCarty said, “The most important thing in my first live pitching was to check my physical condition. My body felt good when pitching, and both the fastball and the breaking ball were pitched as I thought. All preparations for the upcoming practice game have been completed.”
