Trade → first championship → elbow surgery… 34-year-old Pil Seung-jo, who felt all the joys and sorrows at kt, “Now I want to play baseball happily”

“Kt is like family.”

What does the kt team mean to KT Wiz pitcher Park Si-young (34)?

After the 2020 season,안전놀이터 Park Si-young moved from the Lotte Giants to kt through a trade. As soon as Park Si-young arrived, he played a big role as a kt Pil Seung-jo and brought joy to kt fans.

Until then, I was far from Pil Seung-jo, but not kt. After his debut in the 2021 season, he played 48 games, the most, and recorded an average ERA of 2.40 with 3 wins, 3 losses and 12 holds, and he played an active role as the main player in the kt combined championship that year.

Park Si-young’s dream to unfold a rosy future at kt did not come true. Having to put the ball down due to a sudden elbow injury during the 2022 season. Park Si-young collapsed in excruciating pain after pitching against the KIA Tigers on May 12.

Park Si-young, who injured his elbow ligaments and bones, was on the operating table and has not been able to come back until now, let alone out for the season. Currently, Park Si-young is sweating heavily and preparing to return for the 2023 season.

Park Si-young, who we met at the KT Futures training ground in Iksan, Jeonbuk on the 2nd, said, “There is nothing bad about the condition. He manages the tight schedule well. He has pain from the rehabilitation process, but other than that, his condition is not bad.”

Many were surprised when he fell off the mound. He also said, “I got a lot of calls saying, ‘Are you okay? It was a pity that he got injured in a situation where he was doing well in the first half. Isn’t his rehabilitation boring? I also missed the baseball field,” he said.

After the surgery, he devoted a long time to rehabilitation. His rehab workouts are boring. Because he has to do the same exercise over and over again, day after day.

Park Si-young said, “I have to gather with the players and exercise, but I do the same thing every day here. When I run a game, various situations arise and it is fun, but rehabilitation is not fun. “I always have to do the same thing as a student,” he said.

“Even if I want to come back, I shouldn’t be in a hurry. Even if I ask the players who have had the surgery, they say that it is not something that can be done quickly. Being bored is natural. The most important thing is to overcome boring workouts and show steady performance. Even if it’s not fun, it should be. I have to do what I have to do,” he said forcefully.

He came to kt and felt all the joys and sorrows. He won the integration, and he did the surgery. On the other hand, he played baseball closely and felt once again what his teammate’s affection was.

Park Si-young said, “kt is a really tight team. There is a sense of weight, and there is no need to be intimidated if you are here. It’s like family. The hyungs create a good atmosphere. It can be awkward at first, but I think kt is a team that adapts quickly. That’s why I think my grades are good and my skills are growing quickly.”

He said, “I think I’ve done everything since I came to kt. I played baseball with my teammates, won championships, and had surgery while getting injured. I think I’ve felt all the joys and sorrows, but now I just want to play baseball happily.”

Finally, Park Si-young said, “It would be nice if I became a full body and a helpful player, but it may not be. That’s why you have to make a good body and go,” he said. First of all, I want to rehabilitate well and feel the original feeling in the place where I was originally,” he smiled.
