Park Min-woo was Korea’s leading second baseman until recently. He entered the 2012 NC First Round at the ninth rank and won the Rookie of the Year title in 2014, then recorded a batting average of . Starting with the 2017 APBC (Asian Professional Baseball Championship), Park Min-woo also wore the Taegeuk mark in three consecutive tournaments, from the Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games in 2018 to the Premier 12 in 2019. 

Park Min-woo started to decline from 2021. In July of that year, Park Seok-min, Lee Myung-gi, and Kwon Hee-dong had a private meeting with outsiders at the expedition accommodation, violated the Corona 19 quarantine rules, were suspended for 72 KBO games and 25 games for the club, and returned with reflection in May 2022, but 104 He suffered a sluggish game batting average of 2.67, 4 homers and 38 RBIs. 

Park Min-woo left behind the regrets of the past two years and signed a large-scale free agent contract with the original team NC in November of last year. Joining as a founding member of NC and being recognized for his role as a franchise star, he hit a jackpot of up to 14 billion won for a contract period of 8 years (5+3 years). He was guaranteed up to 9 billion won (including 1 billion won in options) over 5 years, and the total options including contract execution afterwards are 5 billion won. 

On the 22nd (hereafter Korean time), Park Min-woo, who met at the Tucson Spring Camp in Arizona, USA, said, “The club took great care of me and treated me well, so I have to pay for it.” It wasn’t good. He has a strong desire to achieve good grades this year in order to boost his self-esteem. I want to produce results that I can accept.” 

Preparations for the new season are going smoothly. The overseas camp he visited after 3 years due to COVID-19 is another motivation for him. Park Min-woo said, “I am excited and excited to go to an overseas camp after a long time since Corona 19.” It is an environment where teamwork can be strengthened well.” 

Specifically, Park Min-woo said, “I seem to get close quickly because there are many places to eat with players who come to the camp for the first time on rest days.” “I became very close with Han Seok-hyun in particular. follow me well I feel like he wants to take care of me a little more.” 

As time went by, Park Min-woo became a senior member of the NC team. Now it has become a position where I have to lead my juniors on the ground. He said, “In the meantime, the part that is different from the camp is that I have to take care of my juniors. (Son) Ah-seop hyung, (Park) Kun-woo hyung, and (Park) Se-hyeok hyung are also at the Tucson camp for the first time.” When I see my juniors getting better, I feel proud for no reason,” he said with a smile. 

Of course, the expenditure is also higher than in the past camp. Park Min-woo, who said, “I didn’t buy anything for me when I came here,” said, “When I came to camp when I was young, I couldn’t spend a single dollar I exchanged. His older brothers always bought him food. I am giving as well as receiving. It is a good tradition inherited from good seniors before that,” showing off his affection for his juniors. 

In Tucson, Arizona, USA, not only NC, but also KT, KIA, and the Korean WBC baseball team have set up camps and are working hard. From the standpoint of Park Min-woo, who was once a regular customer of the national team, the past two years cannot help but feel more regretful seeing the national team training in the same area. 

Park Min-woo said, “The national team is a place that every player dreams of. And basically, you have to be good at baseball to go there. I don’t even think I want to go to the national team because I haven’t been able to do it recently.” “Last year, the soccer team received a lot of support and did well at the World Cup. I will wholeheartedly support the WBC team this time as well. I will play baseball well first and then look for another opportunity.” 

Park Min-woo’s keyword for this season is restoration of honor. The goal is to return to Park Min-woo before the slump and punishment many baseball fans remember and attend the Golden Glove ceremony in style. He said, “I want to go back to what many fans and officials know about me. I also have a strong desire to go to the Golden Globe Awards Ceremony again after achieving good results. I will do my best to win a third Golden Glove by playing well for a season.”
