has already experienced the captaincy two years ago.

who was her motivation for joining Kiwoom and who dropped out of the national team due to injury,
telling her to “work hard and come back.”
He said, “Luck is important in short-term games.
Baseball is a game of probability. It’s
a very difficult sport, but I think players and teams who increase the odds will win,”
said he would focus on increasing Korea’s chances of winning.
