I said “I have no regrets about winning”… 1 win to Bae Young-soo, 2 wins to Kim Won-hyung, he became a legend after putting it down

 Jang Won-joon (38, Doosan), who was in danger of retirement after failing to win a single game over the past 4 years, has already won 3 wins this year alone. I put my heart down and become a legend. 

Jang Won-joon started the 6th game of the season against NC in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Changwon NC Park on the 13th and won 3 wins (undefeated) in the season and his 132nd personal career with a good pitch of 73 pitches with 6 innings, 3 hits, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts and no runs. took care 

Jang Won-joon, whom we met after the game, said, “I definitely feel more comfortable psychologically than in my first appearance. He said, “The more I throw, the better the results come out, so I’m getting more confident.” The aggressive pitch went well,” he said, leaving a pleasant impression of victory.

Jang Won-jun, who was on the verge of retirement after the 2022 season, was given an opportunity for another year through a meeting with manager Lee Seung-yeop in October of last year. This became his goddamn move. This is because he, who had not won a single win over the past four years, succeeded in making a comeback with 3 wins and an average ERA of 2.76 in 3 games this season. 

As the game progresses, the pitching content is upgraded. He became the winning pitcher in 1844 days after the match against LG in Jamsil on May 23, 2018, against Samsung on May 5, 2018, and achieved 130 wins, the 11th and 4th left-hander in history. He won 1 run in 5⅓ innings against Hanwha in Jamsil on June 6 and achieved the quality start in 1865 days after the LG match on May 5, 2018 the previous day.

Jang Won-joon said, “I thought it would be regrettable if I quit without being able to do anything while sick. Even if it didn’t work for him, he saw that my ball wasn’t working in the first team and decided that it was right to quit. He endured with only that thought,” he said. “If I do this, I think I can do it for another year.

The secret to his comeback was the newly installed two-seam fastball in the Futures League. Jang Won-joon explained, “The turning point was that Coach Kwon Myung-chul encouraged me to practice two-seam.”

On this day, Jang Won-joon won the starting match at the age of 37 years, 10 months and 13 days, and stepped on the 130-win mark as the second-oldest starter in history. The first place was Hanwha Song Jin-woo, 38 years, 2 months, 25 days old (May 11, 2004, Daejeon Samsung Game). In addition, he chased after Lotte pitching coach Bae Young-soo, who had 5th in starting wins (131 wins), with a difference of 1 win, and was ranked 10th in career wins (4th for lefties). Only 2 wins away from 9th SSG coach Kim Won-hyung (134 wins). It is the appearance of recovering the dignity of the Fantastic 4 after overcoming the retirement crisis. 스포츠토토

I put my heart down and become a legend. Jang Won-jun said, “I have no regrets about winning. He said, “Thanks to the help of the beasts, he is quickly gaining multipliers.” I just think that the batter I am dealing with is the last and increase the outcount step by step,” he said honestly. 

He said, “My role this year is to arrange the stamina of good pitchers such as Choi Won-jun, Choi Seung-yong, and Kim Dong-ju. All I have to do is go in as a substitute starter so they can rest and stay in good shape.” “I am satisfied with just throwing right now. There is no other greed,” he emphasized.

Through an interview, Jang Won-joon also left advice for his junior, Cha Woo-chan (Lotte), who is aiming for a comeback like himself. Jang Won-joon said, “(Cha) Woo-chan is also a pitcher who consistently threw well, but this happened because of an injury. He seems to be preparing well now, so I hope he pitches well in the first team in the future.”
