“I want to win just one more time”… KT captain Park Kyung-soo dreams of magic
“I wish I could win just one more time.”
Founded in 2013, KT Wiz celebrated its 10th anniversary this year. In the 2015 season, he came to the stage of the first team in the KBO League and stayed at the bottom for the first three seasons. Finished the 2018 season in 9th place. In 2019, after the appointment of manager Lee Kang-cheol, the ranking was raised to 6th place. In 2020, he finished second in the pennant race and advanced to the postseason for the first time.
And won the pennant race in 2021 and won the first combined championship by winning 4 consecutive wins over the Doosan Bears in the Korean Series메이저사이트. Last season, they finished the season in 4th place.
Captain Park Kyung-soo, who has been active at KT since the 2015 season, opened his mouth about the changed status at the time and now in an interview with reporters after the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO Media Day held at the Grand Hyatt Seoul Grand Ballroom in Hannam-dong, Yongsan-gu, Seoul on the 30th.
Park Kyung-soo said, “It’s so good. At that time, we didn’t even get attention. It was a time when we were evaluated as the lowest.” “But now we are always evaluated as a team that can play fall baseball. It feels good in itself. I see it as a strong team,” he said.
Park Kyung-soo said, “This year is the 10th anniversary of the founding. Now, Corona 19 has come to an end. Now, if I win, I want to enjoy the thrill of winning at KT Wiz Park in Suwon, our home stadium.” “I don’t know how long I can play baseball. But I wish I could do it just one more time,” he said. “The players want it too. I want to get that feeling one more time. I don’t think I have to tell the players. I think I just have to do well,” he said.
In the second game of the 2021 Korean Series, Park Kyung-soo made a double play by making a big rain in the first and second bases unscathed in the first inning. KT won 6-1 and Park Kyung-soo won the Daily MVP. However, he suffered an injury while playing defense in Game 3. Due to a partial tear in the calf muscle, he could not play after the 3rd game.
Park Kyung-soo could not play in the 4th game, but KT won the first championship by defeating Doosan 8-4. While the KT team was enjoying the joy on the mound, Park Kyung-soo put on crutches and celebrated the victory with me.
Park Kyung-soo said, “I wanted to celebrate with everyone on the mound when we won. That’s why it’s a pity. But I think it’s very fortunate that there are many people who said they were moved by walking on crutches and going to the ground.” I want to shed tears from above again, and I want to pop the champagne again.”
