Koo Chang-mo, who finished the live pitching, said, “This was my first live pitching since my injury, so it’s been a while since I stepped on the mound.

The velocity is gradually increasing, and the pitching position is looking forward to the future.” “I have confidence that I will improve as I play,” he said.

I am disappointed in those who trusted and waited for me. “I will play healthy and confidently so as not to give up,” he said.
