I promise to bring you a lot of fun this year with my Kiwoon Heroes and I promise to play hard for a championship! Thank you to my agent for guiding me and helping me get into this new chapter, and thank you for always taking care of me. Today is National Girls and Women of Sport Day at home, and I want to take my hat off to you for the admiration and respect you have earned from me and the many players you are helping. Baseball and sports of all kinds need strong women, and I’m grateful to you. LET’S DO THIS!” She expressed her.
