Right-hander Ko Woo-seok (26), who agreed to a contract with the San Diego Padres, returned from a murderous schedule.
Ko Woo-suk, who visited San Diego to complete the contract, entered the country through Incheon International Airport on the 6th.헤라카지노주소
He looked very tired. “I did a lot of things without resting time when I arrived. It doesn’t feel real even being here. I want to go home and rest for now,” he said with a smile.
As the contract was signed belatedly, he had a hectic schedule. He left Seoul, went to Tokyo, Japan, and San Diego, then slept for one night and returned to Seoul again.
Immediately after arriving in San Diego, Ko Woo-seok went around the hospital and conducted a medical test.
At 1:53 p.m. on the 3rd in San Diego time, the medical staff sent a sign that passed the medical test, and the whole process was completed. It was seven minutes before the posting deadline.
Ko Woo-seok said, “I thought I would be happy, but I felt relieved.”
It was a hectic schedule, but there was something he didn’t forget. It was his routine.
According to Lee Ye-rang, CEO of Ricoh Sports Agency who accompanied Ko Woo-seok, Ko Woo-seok, who visited Petco Park for the first time on the second day after receiving a medical test on the first day, first visited the Padres clubhouse, saying, “I have to exercise.”
He hurriedly got a glove here, played catch with the bullpen catcher, and exercised. He also met teammates who were training at Petco Park including Yu Darvish.
“Luckily, I went out to exercise and met him. I took pictures with him,” Ko said, expressing his feelings about meeting Darvish.
He was not alone. He met with A.J. Preller in person, and also had a video call with pitching coach Ruben Niebla to coordinate future schedules related to preparations for the upcoming season.
San Diego has to pay particular attention to its preparation schedule for this season. The 2024 season starts earlier than others.
San Diego will start its season first with the Los Angeles Dodgers and Seoul Series, which will be held at Gocheok Sky Dome for two days from March 20.
There is a possibility that Ko will make his Major League debut in his home country. “It’s amazing,” he said. “I’m still in a position to compete. I’m a bit impatient to say that I’m a Major Leaguer. I’ll do my best to build up my body and play my first game in Seoul.”
