Samsung Lions foreign pitcher David Buchanan is making a calm impression by engraving the Korean flag in his glove. 사설토토 Buchanan uses a new glove in the second half. The Taegeukgi engraved on the glove stood out. It is extremely unusual for a foreign player to engrave the Korean flag on a glove.
Why did he, a U.S. national, pay respect to the country of his league by engraving the national flag, not the American flag, in his glove.
Buchanan replied, I was grateful to be able to play baseball in front of fans who always support me in Korea, so I engraved the Taegeukgi while thinking about how I could repay you.
I’m personally proud of playing in Korea. It’s time to order a new glove, so I put in Taegukgi, he added. Buchanan’s sincerity, who loves Korea, was properly reflected.
Buchanan is a member recognized by all Lions family members, not strangers. He wants to be a mentor who can have a good influence on young players.
So far, young players have asked me a lot about my mindset and mental aspects when I came to the mound, and I hope you ask me about diet management, training routines, and how to throw the ball. Make the most of me. I want to be a player who can have a good influence in the pitching part.
Buchanan, who is known for his good fan service, said, I’m really grateful to be able to communicate with my fans. I always want to do something for you. I can’t reveal it yet, but I’m planning to hold a surprise event, he said.
Buchanan, who first stepped on Korean soil in 2020, pitched in 83 games over three years with 42 wins, 20 losses and a 3.20 ERA. In his first year of debut, he set a tie for the most wins by foreign pitchers in the club’s history with 15 wins and 7 losses. The following year, he tied for first place in the multi-win category with Eric Yokishi of Kiwoom with 16 wins and 5 losses.
Last year, he was out of power for about a month due to injury, but he continued his double-digit winning streak for three consecutive years with 11 wins and 8 losses. He is showing his ace instinct with 8 wins, 6 losses and a 2.99 ERA in 19 games this season.
Buchanan will try to win nine games of the season against LG on the 4th. Since the match against NC on the 8th of last month, he has been winning three consecutive games and has been strong with a 2.57 ERA against LG, so you can expect a victory.
