The match on this day drew attention with the ‘Yoo Gangnam Derby’. This is the first meeting with Yoo Kang-nam after wearing a Lotte uniform as a free agent.
However, Kangnam Yoo did not participate. The starting catcher was Lee Jung-hoon, and the second catcher was Ji Ji-wan.
Kelly was his first appearance in the demonstration game and his first collaboration with Park Dong-won in an official KBO game. Kelly smiled broadly, saying, “I’m happy to show what I prepared for during the spring camp. It was good to be able to play a good game. I was able to win thanks to the good performances of the fielders in offense and defense. Although it is an exhibition game, winning is always good!”
“Today, I decided to throw 4 innings and went up, but I am satisfied with 4 innings. I believe that it will continue to improve as it is still in the preparation process,” he said. I worked hard. I think this part became a good practice for the regular league as well.”
He also emphasized, “It’s my first official match with Park Dong-won, but I’m making a good chemistry and relationship between pitcher and catcher through practice games. There is no problem with breathing.”
