“The best weapon is humility,” says national batsman who fell in love with Kwak-Bin’s ‘discourse method’

Doosan Bears manager Lee Seung-yeop praised the team’s native ace Kwak Bin’s humble speech. They say that the attitude of respecting the opponent is the biggest weapon for the player.

Doosan will play Game 14 꽁머니지급 of the season against Hanwha Eagles in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 12th. He is aiming to secure a winning series for three consecutive weekends with a winning streak of 11-4 on the previous day.

Doosan’s trust is Kwak Bin, who will start as a starting pitcher. Kwak Bin became the league’s top starting pitcher with 9 wins, 4 losses and a 2.46 ERA in 15 games this season. If he becomes a winning pitcher on this day, he will step on the double-digit multiplier mark in his first season of professional debut.

Coincidentally, Kwak Bin’s ninth win of the season was Hanwha and the venue was Daejeon. Kwak Bin started against Hanwha on the 1st and led Doosan to victory with two hits, one home run, one walk, one walk, and 10 strikeouts and one run in seven innings.

There is one more interesting point to watch. The opponent who will face Kwak Bin as a starter is Hanwha’s top prospect Moon Dong-joo, the same as on the 1st.

Moon Dong-joo is also playing his first full-time season successfully with six wins, seven losses and a 3.39 ERA in 19 games this year, his second year as a professional. In the case of the match against Doosan on the 1st, he did his part with five hits, one home run, four strikeouts and two runs in five innings, but Kwak Bin and his joy and sorrow were mixed as they wore the yoke of defeat.

Kwak Bin praised Moon Dong-joo, who competed in good faith, in an interview with Su Hoon player after the game on the 1st, saying, “I thought Moon Dong-joo was a better pitcher than me, so I threw it with the mindset of a spouse to learn and it was so fun.”

Coach Lee Seung-yeop smiled with satisfaction after hearing Kwak Bin’s remarks about Moon Dong-ju to reporters before the game on Wednesday. “The best weapon is humility,” he said. “I don’t know if (Kwak-bin) has such a mind only in his mind, but I think I would have said the same thing.”

“Kwak Bin became a winning pitcher (in the match against Hanwha on the 1st), so it’s good to respect each other.” “I think he’ll think he’s the best inside,” he said with a smile and added, “I think Kwak Bin’s appearance is a normal mindset as a professional player.” “The results are really good,” he stressed.

Lee Seung-yeop also expressed his satisfaction with the current team’s pitching staff. Doosan is a big support for building wins in a fierce ranking battle as the first to third starters, which lead to Raul Alcantara, Brandon Waddell and Kwak Bin, are smoothly turned.

Coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “Alcantara, Brandon, and Kwak Bin are very helpful in operating the starting rotation as one, two, and three are stable,” adding, “Alcantara has not been a winning pitcher in the last three games, but he is still doing his part by throwing a lot of innings.”
