KIA Tigers Adonis Medina (27) expressed his aspirations to come to Korea to challenge a new baseball.
In an interview with the spring camp held at the Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona, USA on the 8th (Korean time), Medina said, “I can’t communicate well with his colleagues at the moment, so it’s all about exchanging a few words. However, we are preparing hard while cheering and encouraging each other.”
Medina, who came to the KBO League for the first time this season, is a right-handed pitcher with a fastball exceeding 150 km/h, sinker, cutter, changeup, and slider. In the major leagues, he recorded an average ERA of 5.35 with 1 win, 1 loss and 1 save in 19 career games (35⅓ innings) over the past three seasons.
“Overall it was fine. He said this was a lot better than the first pitching,” Medina said of his second pitching in the bullpen. “The sinker is 바카라사이트used to catch the hitter. Among breaking pitches, he is confident in his changeup. He uses a lot of left and right,” he explained about his type of pitch.
“I don’t know much about Korean baseball, but I’ve heard of it a few times,” said Medina, explaining her reason for coming to Korea, saying, “I’m used to the American baseball style, but I wanted to experience what Korea is like.” “I like small balls too. It is also fun to practice checks,” he added.
When asked about how to express herself in one word, Medina answered ‘Hola (Hola, hello in Spanish)!’ and said, “I want to remain a good colleague with the player and I will always try to communicate with the fans. I think it will be enough if you remember it as ‘Ola’,” she laughed.
