Park Se-woong threw 32 pitches, including a fastball, curveball, slider, and forkball, in two innings. The maximum speed was 147 km.
He received 3 hits while dealing with 9 batters, but showed crisis management skills and did not allow runs, and was replaced by Jung Woo-young (LG Twins) from the 3rd inning.
Starting with Park Se-woong, Jung Woo-young, Lee Yong-chan, Lee Eui-ri, Kim Yun-sik, and Won Tae-in all played a scoreless game, and the other line exploded, winning 9-0.
Park Se-woong, who met with the reporters after the game, said, “The fastball was overall good. I didn’t score, but the slider felt a little missing overall. It was a pity in the count fight.”
Regarding the feeling of the WBC official ball, Park Se-woong explained, “I feel like the forkball falls out a little. However, I feel that the curve or slider is more pressing than I thought.”
On this day, Park Se-woong used a rosin bag used in the Major League (MLB) instead of the rosin bag used in the KBO league. It is to prepare for the WBC.
Park Se-woong said, “Before I used it, I thought it would feel like a Korean one, but when I used it with sweat on it, it felt more sticky.”
Park Se-woong, who first wore the Taegeuk mark at the Asian Professional Baseball Championship (APBC) in 2017, where only players under the age of 24 participate, went to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics in 2021, and this time he put the Taegeuk mark again.

When asked about his memories of Tokyo Dome, Park Se-woong said, “It wasn’t a very good baseball field. It felt too old.”
