The first All-Star in 21 years said, “Age doesn’t matter, does it?”

SSG, a professional baseball team, is looking to win its second consecutive title with one of the best bullpens in the league.

Reporter Hong Seok-jun met with Noh Kyung-eun, who is one of the strongest bullpens even at her advanced age.토토사이트

Noh Kyung-eun comes in with the bases loaded, strikes out the side, and roars.

Noh, who was released by Lotte after the 2021 season and resurrected by SSG after a difficult career, has been a mainstay in the team’s bullpen for two consecutive years.

“I think that such a (release) situation is a turning point in life, so if you don’t get frustrated when you have such a situation and you are sure of your mind, you can continue to challenge yourself steadily….”

He leads the league in holds, but at a salary of 170 million won, he’s one of the best examples of so-called “bang for the buck.

“My goal is to be in the top 3 (in the hold category) unconditionally, and I have to perform well so that I can raise my salary again, right?”

In the past, Noh sarcastically said, “I’m going to go play a racing game,” in response to some fans who left malicious comments, earning her the nickname “No-Kart”.

She was disappointed to learn in March of this year that the game had been shut down.

“Oh, it’s gone? It’s a game that I have a lot of memories of… I don’t really like games, and the only game I ever liked was ‘Kartrider,’ so it’s kind of heartbreaking.”

So much time has passed that Noh is now a 39-year-old veteran of the game.

For Noh, age is just a number, as she’s in the midst of a second peak, having been named to her first All-Star team since her debut in 2003.

“As long as my fastball continues to be in the low-to-mid 140s, I think I’ll continue to play. I think I’ll just keep challenging myself regardless of my age.”
