He started at Arizona Training Center, where he made Pedi a “20th-win” pitcher, and paid the full cost at his own expense

Eric Peddy, 30, who shook the KBO league with his sweeper this season, faced an inflection point in his baseball career. He threw a powerful sweeper to the plate, and displayed a different performance in an unfamiliar league. He achieved his dream of becoming a pitcher with 20 wins and an ERA of 2.00-209 strikeouts to win three gold medals. Peddy, who was named MVP based on overwhelming support, successfully made a comeback to the Major League. He signed a two-year, 15 million-dollar contract with the Chicago White Sox.

Peddy said he learned how to sweep at the “Push Performance” in Scottsdale, Arizona, the U.S. last winter. He was a starting pitcher in the Major League before coming to Korea, but his “Push Performance” made Peddy a more powerful pitcher.

Moon Dong-ju (20), the “future” and “present” of the Hanwha Eagles, erased his break from the end of the year and the beginning of the year. While training in the U.S., he will prepare for the 2024 and next season. He will go to the “push performance” that made Peddy a “20-win” pitcher. He will leave Korea on Monday for training until early January and return to Australia for off-season training.

Moon Dong-ju and Pedi have a special relationship. In August, I met with Pedi separately during the away game between NC and Changwon. Moon Dong-ju asked the scout team to make a place. I wanted to know the difference between the best pitcher. Looking back on his meeting with Pedi, Moon said, “I learned completely about baseball.”

This trip to the U.S. was also made by Pedi’s recommendation.

At the KBO award ceremony held late last month, the two took commemorative photos as MVP and rookie of the year. “It was meaningful to be with Moon Dong-ju in the single stage. I told him that I want you to win MVP someday,” Pedi said.

Moon Dong-ju has to pay for the “Push Performance” training. He also said he got a local interpreter to help with the training at his own expense

C. It is an investment to achieve better results ahead of the third year of the professional league.

During off-season inactivity, the club cannot support individual player training. Coaches from their teams are also prohibited, or team-led training is also prohibited. This is to ensure player rest.

“Driveline focuses on speed. It helps pitchers who need speed-up. Push performance focuses on building and managing body optimized for pitching. It helps to manage injury,” a team source said.

Moon threw a 160-km/h fastball in an away game in Gwangju in April. He became the first Korean player to break the 160-km/h mark, sending the entire Korean baseball into excitement. What he needs is more stable than speed.

Hanwha right-handed pitcher Kim Min-woo (28) has moved to the U.S. at his own expense and is training at the Seattle Drive-Line. The training schedule is six weeks.

Moon Dong-ju, who joined the club as a first-round pick in 2022, pitched a total of 118 ⅔ this season. He adjusted the number of innings pitched under the management of his team. He pitched in 23 games and won eight, posted an ERA of 3.72 and 95 strikeouts.

He was selected as a member of the national team for the Hangzhou Asian Games. He contributed to winning the title as a starting pitcher in the final. He also participated in the APBC (Asian pro baseball championship) held after the season. He achieved almost everything he had planned for this season.
