Surgery decision → Dramatic cancellation, I asked Noh Kyung-eun about his retirement plan [Interview]

“If I don’t complete 140 km, I might retire. Then I’m going to become a knuckleballer.

” . He was in such good shape during the off-season that when he decided to have surgery, all plans seemed to be shaken. 안전놀이터 Originally, Noh Kyung-eun underwent gallbladder removal surgery on January 31st, and joining the spring camp was expected to be difficult. However, on January 31, when he was supposed to undergo surgery, he was re-examined at the hospital, and he was told that he “does not need surgery right away.” And he immediately packed his bags to head to Florida spring camp.

Noh Kyung-eun, whom I met at Vero Beach Camp, said, “I had another test on the day I went for surgery, and he said, ‘Why do you want to do it when you don’t have to do it right away?’ They said there was no need to do that right away,” recalling the situation at the time when he was able to join the camp dramatically. Noh Kyung-eun laughed, saying, “I didn’t have to do the surgery right away, but I think I was a bit scared. It’s not like I can’t exercise because I’m in pain or in pain right now, so I can do it after 3-4 years or after I retire.”

Noh Kyung-eun, who flew straight to the United States, raised his physical condition at a pace that was never outdone by his juniors. In his first bullpen pitching, he has already thrown over 142km velocity. Noh Kyung-eun said, “Last year, it was about 145km. In future live pitching, the pitchers will change again, so I try not to raise it too quickly. We have to do it slowly,” he said.

Roh Kyung-eun, whose life as a player was extended by joining SSG in the crisis of retirement, recorded 12 wins, 5 losses, 1 save and 7 holds last season. He served as a substitute starter early in the season and out of the bullpen in the second half. He had the bad luck of getting a finger fracture on the bat at the beginning of the season when his pace was so good, but he also thinks it was ‘destiny’. Noh Kyung-eun said, “I think it’s the will of heaven if such a situation occurs. If I didn’t get hurt, I think it would have been a bigger accident. I think it’s positive.” I don’t think there will be work itself. I also tell my juniors, ‘I’m never going to be selected, so I’m not thinking about it'”, revealing pride in the team’s juniors.

Noh Kyung-eun’s goal for this season is to ‘win again’. Noh Kyung-eun said, “I want to go to the Korean Series again unconditionally. I think this is the best chance given our strength and situation. It’s a great opportunity to build a dynasty, but this year is more important than last year. I think it will be comfortable in a few years, so the players are nervous without losing their strength.”

Born in 1984, Noh Kyung-eun will turn 39 this year. It is unreasonable for Korean age. If so, does he have a personal retirement plan? While revealing her plan, “I think I will retire if my body doesn’t follow and I can’t run 140km,” Roh revealed her greed subtly, saying, “Even though I was thinking about retirement, I wonder if I could do it for another 2-3 years by turning to knuckleballer.” .
