Hanwha Eagles Jeong Eun-won’s 2022 year was particularly bad. He came back after going through a terrible slump, and there were pleasant things like ‘Mr. All-Star’, but it was never a satisfactory year. However, Jung Eun-won, a player, finds a way even in the process. He prepared for the new season with a big realization as a stepping stone, and Jung Eun-won is confident this season to the extent that he has prepared in that way.
◆ Mindset, that one difference
Jeong Eun-won, who won the Golden Glove in 2021, wanted to become a player without flaws, but the road to becoming a perfect player was not so easy. Jeong Eun-won, who had a hard time at bat last year, made many regrettable scenes in his defense. He recovered his form through the season, but the disappointment was as great as the expectations for Jeong Eun-won. He did it himself too.
Jung Eun-won said, “It was a year with a lot of regrets. He felt a lot as a whole,” he looked back on last season. It was hard on both his body and mind. When asked if the last year after his pro debut was the hardest, Jung Eun-won replies, “I think it was.” He looked back, saying, “If I had been ignorant, I had high expectations for myself last year, but it was a little difficult because I was so unhappy.”
Jeong Eun-won said, “At the time, I didn’t know because I was only in a hurry and stuck to it, thinking ‘why not’, but looking back after one season, I thought that my mentality was broken, there were complex factors.” did.
The answer Jung Eun-won found through that process was ‘mindset’. Jeong Eun-won said, “I felt that a lot of things can change with one mindset.”
That realization brought reflection and motivation at the same time. He said, “Actually, I have to move quickly like a younger player in defense and running, and I should have done it with greed, but I regretted and reflected on not being able to do so. So this year, I thought to play baseball more boldly and boldly. There is,” he stressed.
So, the most focused part is the ‘basic skills’. Jeong Eun-won said, “Rather than trying to make a big change, I am training while reflecting on the things I thought were important when I was the best at defense. In the offensive part, there are parts where I failed last year, so I am paying attention to the basic and basic things when I did well. “he said.
◆ “I just tried to die”
Jung Eun-won, who worked out in Incheon, her hometown until December, came down to Daejeon in January and is training with her colleagues. It’s a bit different from the individual workouts he’s done so far. He did a lot of bare-body exercises centering on the core and lower body rather than lifting a lot of weight in running and agility-oriented exercises and weight training.
Jung Eun-won said, “In fact, they say that studying and exercising are not good, but that it is important to do it efficiently, but in the meantime, I’ve only been looking at efficiency and I’ve done it to this extent, but this time I just tried to ‘die’.” said.
As long as it’s ready, I’m satisfied. Jeong Eun-won said, “I feel like I’ve improved enough to be proud of myself. In fact, when I first started doing this exercise, I was about to throw up and collapse on the spot on the first day.
Also, “I didn’t try to lose or gain weight, and I didn’t pay much attention, but I lost a little bit of weight by adjusting the carbohydrates a little. I feel like my body is getting stronger and better, so if the season goes well, I’m thinking of continuing this routine from now on.” said.
◆ I and the team must change
The reason Jung Eun-won says, “This year’s mindset itself is different” is not just because of her poor performance last year. When asked why they set their mindset differently, Jeong Eun-won said, “Our team says it’s a rebuild, but didn’t we finish last for three years in a row? “He spoke out.
He said, “(Oh) Sunjin seniors and (Lee) Taeyang seniors went to other teams, and they told us a lot about how other teams looked at our team.” He added, “I felt the need to run a lot. I personally I think it will be a very important season not only in terms of performance, but also in terms of the team.” 메이저사이트
