SSG Romero, ‘from NPB’, completed his first bullpen pitch “KBO official ball is smaller than Japan”

Eni Romero (32), a new foreign pitcher who joined SSG Landers with expectations as the first starter, completed his first successful pitching in the bullpen.

Romero made his first bullpen pitch on the 8th (Korean time) at SSG’s spring camp held at the Jackie Robinson Training Complex in Florida, USA. He threw a total of 30 pitches, including a fastball, two-seam (two-seam fastball), slider, curveball, and changeup.

After pitching, Romero said, “Today, I focused on learning how to pitch on the mound. In addition to the fastball, he threw a breaking ball and had a process of feeling the first KBO league official ball with his fingertips.”

Romero also shared his thoughts on the official ball. He said, “The KBO league official ball feels similar to the American minor league ball. It feels smaller than the Japanese official ball.”

SSG pitching coach Cho Woong-cheon said, “I haven’t pitched with all my strength yet, but I felt that the fastball and the breaking ball had good overall strength and movement.” I look forward to pitching in the future,” he said.

The following is a Q&A with Romero. 

-How do you feel about joining the camp? How have you been preparing for the off-season?
“I am grateful to be able to join the team camp. I will do my best every moment and use 100 percent of my ability whenever the opportunity is given to help the team win. Also, before joining the spring camp, I worked out with a personal trainer in Dominica to prepare. I’ve been doing well, and I want to finish the season healthy.” 카지노사이트

-How would you describe your playstyle? 
“I like to pitch aggressively. It’s my forte to deal aggressively with hitters so they feel pressure when they step into the plate.”

-What is your current physical condition and goals for the season?
“Spring camp has just started, but I’m already ready to play. My goal for this season is to finish the season in good health without a miss.”

-What was your experience with Choo Shin-soo?
“I played against the Tampa Bay Rays and the Washington Nationals. Most of the players have weaknesses and points that can be attacked, but Choo Shin-soo was a very tricky player who was not good at attacking.”

– Before joining, did you have any advice about Korean baseball?
“I heard that it is a very difficult league to adapt to as a pitcher. I heard that batters know the strike zone well and make good contact. I want to learn a lot. I have a good relationship with Ivan Nova, and since he was a player last year, he told me a lot about Korea.”

-What did the manager say when you first joined the team?
“They welcomed me and treated me like family. I think they make me want to be on the team as a player.”

-Last word to the fans
“It’s nice to meet the SSG fans, and I’ll do my best to show my 100% skills on the mound to the fans by preparing well for the spring camp.
