At the request of Doosan Bears new manager Lee Seung-yeop, Hisanori Takahashi, pitching instructor, joined the spring camp in Sydney, Australia.
Instructor Takahashi appeared at Blacktown International Sports Park in Sydney, Australia on the 8th. Coach Lee greeted Instructor Takahashi after morning training, and then moved to the room that was being used as the team’s cafeteria and resting room and talked.
Coach Lee asked Instructor Takahashi, who ate a pot of rice during his days with the Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) Yomiuri Giants (2006-2010), to guide Doosan pitchers during the Australian spring camp.
Instructor Takahashi joined Yomiuri in 2000 and started his professional career, leaving a distinct mark with 79 wins, 73 losses, 15 saves, 5 holds, and an ERA of 3.70 in 261 games in 12 seasons in NPB.
In 2010, after challenging the US major league, he showed an impressive appearance with 14 wins, 12 losses, 10 saves, 13 holds, and an average ERA of 3.99 in 168 games in 4 seasons through the New York Mets and LA Angels.
Director Lee expects that Takahashi Instructor will be of great help to the growth of Doosan’s young pitchers based on his rich experience. Instructor Takahashi plans to meet Doosan pitchers in earnest from the 9th and pass on his know-how.
As a pitcher of 177먹튀검증 cm during his active career, Takahashi achieved steady results in high-level Japan and the United States with precise control and sharp pitches despite his modest height. Doosan believes that young prospects in the team can learn a lot from instructor Takahashi.
Instructor Takahashi’s stay at the Doosan Sydney camp is not long, about two weeks, but the timing is perfect. Starting from the third week of camp, Doosan goes through the process of raising the sense of actual combat through Cheongbaekjeon and practice games.
Instructor Takahashi is expected to provide technical and psychological advice while watching the pitchers pitching in the bullpen and live pitching. In particular, it is expected to be of great help to left-handed young guns such as Choi Seung-yong, Lee Byung-hun, Lee Won-jae, and Kim Ho-jun.
