Coach Kang In-kwon said, “As the game goes on, all of our players seem to be improving their condition according to their own plans. Especially today, the starting paddy induces a big hit with various pitches, which is a good thing to expect this season. He showed me the contents of pitching.”
Peddie said, “It was the pitching I was most satisfied with after coming to the camp. The slub, which I still need to study more, is gradually being equipped with the pitch I want. I got along well with catcher Park Dae-on, and the pitching content was satisfactory, which is even better. Continue this good feeling. I will prepare well to continue.”
Catcher Park Dae-on said, “Peddy’s ball, which he worked well with as a starter, was quite powerful. The movement of the ball was really good, so it was difficult to catch. At this camp, I learned how to set my own zone from the coaches, and learned how to hit. It was the camp where I trained the most. I will show a lot of good hits and good looks so that the team can win and play helpfully.”
