Drew Anderson (30), the new foreign pitcher for the professional baseball SSG Landers, has already finished adjusting to life in Korea.

The key is ‘number of pitches’.

Anderson, whom we met at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 14th, said, “I visited a PC room and ate Korean food, including Korean beef,” and added, “I haven’t found any Korean food that didn’t suit my taste yet.” 안전놀이터

An SSG official said, “Anderson went to the PC room ‘alone’. It seems he has already adapted to life in Korea.”

Anderson is the ‘first replacement foreign player’ in the KBO League in 2024.

On the 27th of last month, SSG released Robert Dugger, who was suffering from a sluggish performance, and recruited Anderson.

Anderson made his debut in the KBO League on the 10th against the Gwangju KIA Tigers, and pitched well with a fast ball of up to 156 km/h, allowing 3 hits, no runs, and 6 strikeouts in 3 innings.

Anderson left with a career record of 1 win, 3 losses, and an ERA of 6.50 in the Major League Baseball (MLB) of the American Professional Baseball League, and posted a record of 7 wins, 5 losses, and an average ERA of 3.05 in the Hiroshima Toyo Carp of the Japanese Professional Baseball League over the two years of 2022-2023. 슬롯사이트

This year, he played as a ‘bullpen pitcher’ in the minor league Triple A under the Detroit Tigers in the United States and signed with SSG.

The two seasons spent in Japan were a great help to Anderson in adjusting to life in Korea.

Anderson’s wife is also a Japanese person who understands Korean sentiment well.

Anderson said, “I only watched Korean baseball a little bit, but there are similarities between Japanese baseball and Korean baseball. Even in the KIA game, I felt an atmosphere that was different from the United States and similar to Japan.”

He said, “Korean hitters are quite aggressive. They put out the bat aggressively even on the first pitch. I throw fastballs, curves, sliders, cutters, and changeups. When dealing with aggressive hitters, I can mix up a variety of pitches, so I feel much more comfortable.” He also expressed confidence.

I also have a friend who gave me advice before signing with SSG.

Anderson said, “I occasionally keep in touch with Sean Anderson (who played for the KIA Tigers),” and “I haven’t contacted him since I came to Korea, but I am close friends with Sam Gavilio (who played for SSG in 2021).”

He is now receiving help from former big leaguer Choo Shin-soo (SSG).

“I talk to Choo Shin-soo often,” Anderson said. “He wants to help everyone and has amazing knowledge.” 토토사이트 추천
