In the 14th game of the season against KT held at Daegu Lions Park on the 14th, Won Tae-in led the team to a 10-4 victory with a 3-run pitch in 6 innings, earning his 7th win of the season.

During the post-game interview, the story of the 2024 KBO rookie draft held this afternoon came up briefly.

I asked about his friendship with Jeon Mir, a five-year junior from Gyeongbuk High School, who led the Blue Dragons to the high school baseball championship this season. A player who attracted a lot of attention as a dual-sword player with excellent athletic ability and is active in both batting and batting.토토사이트

“(Personally) I’m not acquainted with him, but he said he was a student when my father (former coach Won Min-gu of Hyeopseong Kyungbok Middle School) was there. So, I heard a lot that he wanted to come to Samsung at that time, and it would have been nice if he had come, but it’s a bit disappointing that the first round of nominations was abolished.”

Jeon Mir received a lot of support and encouragement from Samsung fans during his high school days. However, he was so good at baseball that he was drafted by the Lotte Giants with the 3rd pick in the first round.

After being nominated, Jeon Mir said on his personal SNS, “Dear Daegu fans, I feel like I have received so much undeserved attention and love over the past year. I am sorry that I cannot repay all this love, but I will try to grow as much as possible in my position and be able to deal with whoever my opponent is. I think that doing my best to deal with them will repay the fans’ interest. Even though I continue playing baseball elsewhere, I don’t think I will ever forget the love I received this year. Thank you so much. Jeon Mir of the Leaf Giants Corps “Please give us a lot of support,” he expressed his gratitude.
Although they could not catch the local ‘Dual Do-ryu’, Samsung selected Jangchung High School’s tall right-hander Yuk Seon-yeop, a large pitcher with tremendous potential, with the 4th pick in the first round.

An orthodox pitcher with an imposing physique of 1m90 and 90kg. Samsung highly evaluated him as “a pitcher who has all the conditions to grow into a starting pitcher, including a fast ball, ability to use breaking balls, and stamina.” He went on to say, “With his excellent physical condition and work ability, we expect him to play a part in the starting lineup in the future.”

Won Tae-in also showed a lot of interest in Yook Seon-yeop.

“I went to work after seeing the first round pick. I was curious about who we would pick. Wouldn’t he be a good thrower? He was really tall. He was really tall. I was jealous. I wish I was 1m90 too… (laughter)”
