Park Se-woong started on the mound in the game against Samsung held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 17th and contributed to the team’s 7-4 victory with 5 hits, 1 home run, 1 walk, 4 strikeouts, and 2 runs in 6 innings.

Se-Woong Park personally continued his 3-game winning streak. After allowing 2 runs in 6.2 innings against NC on the 9th, he also achieved quality starts in 2 consecutive games.

The regular season is coming to an end, but Park Se-woong’s condition is actually getting better. He has heightened expectations for his role as an Asian Games wild card.

Park Se-woong, who signed the first multi-year contract with Lotte for 5 years and 9 billion won after last season, went ‘all in’ this season. Park Se-woong, who applied for the Sangmu position and was accepted, boldly gave up on joining the Sangmu service and risked everything this year when the Asian Games were held.

Park Se-woong has a great attachment to the Taegeuk symbol. He was selected to the national team at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics and played with the Taegeuk symbol for the first time, and returned with greater maturity. After experiencing international competitions, his attitude towards baseball changed, and he actually became more mentally mature and continued to play in the domestic league. And he achieved his third personal double-digit win total, posting 10 wins (11 losses) on the season.

And since then, he has challenged himself at every international competition. He was also selected for the World Baseball Classic (WBC) national team held before the start of the season and boasted the best condition among the pitching staff. Park Se-woong, who said, “I will throw any position,” was one of the only consolations in the national team, which was eliminated early in the first round due to poor pitchers in each game. At that time, Park Se-woong confirmed his prowess on the international stage by posting outstanding results with 6 scoreless innings in 2 games. He supported his teammates, saying, “All the pitchers did their best to prepare,” and once again used what he learned at the WBC as his own experience.

After the opening of the 2023 season, due to the aftermath of the WBC, he stagnated with 1 loss and an ERA of 5.12 in 4 games in the month of April, but began to revive with 3 wins and no losses in 5 games and an ERA of 1.88 in the month of May. And Park Se-woong, who continued his reputation as a ‘glasses ace’, was selected as the final entry for the Asian Games in June. Although they slowed down for a while in July with 3 losses in 3 games, they are showing their form again as the competition approaches. He has 2 wins and an ERA of 3.18 in 3 games in September without a loss.

Unlike the Tokyo Olympics and WBC, Park Se-woong plays a big role in the Asian Games. The Asian Games set an age limit for national team entry, and Park Se-woong, born in 1995, who was selected as a wild card, is the oldest.

In addition, Park Se-woong’s shoulders are burdened by the lack of experienced starting resources in the national team. In addition, with Lee Jung-hoo missing due to injury, his batting power has weakened, and the role of the pitcher has become more important. Although there is such pressure, Park Se-woong is determined to do his best.
