The tall, skinny pitcher gathered gloves on his chest and stared at the catcher and the batter with an expressionless expression. Tension squeezed the air, holding all the spectators breathless, watching the pitcher and batter. He would also do that because after catching two-outs, he was beaten by a big double and gave him a walk, leading to the crisis of runners at first and second bases. The game was in the middle, so if a hit came out there was a high possibility that the game would decline.
But suddenly the pitcher threw a check ball at first base, and not only the batter, but the crowd was relieved. Even then, the pitcher didn’t go straight to the game. I changed my hat, wiped sweat from my hands on the top, and exchanged autographs with the catcher for a while, and this time I put a check on second base. The batter frowned and the crowd booed, but the pitcher was still expressionless and not shaken at all. Then he put on his hat again and brushed off the dirt from Spike, and suddenly asked the referee for’time’. As if the batter was annoying, he escaped from the plate and swung the bat a couple of times, and the booing of the crowd grew enough to appear on the broadcast.
Then finally the pitcher threw the ball. The batter swung hard, but the ball flew back into the net. It’s a foul. But before throwing the ball again, the pitcher repeated all the previous steps. One pitch felt like it took an hour, and the hitter, distracted by his concentration, retreated with a powerless infield fly.
These days, baseball fans may not believe there was such a pitcher, but Sung-jun, who was the main pitcher of Samsung from the late 1980s to the mid-1990s, actually pitched like the above situation. That’s the secret that the pitcher who has good control, but is not flashy in the pitch and has only a quickball in the mid-130km, won 97 wins and recorded a career ERA of 3.32.
However, due to the unique pitching method, the game time was long and boring when Sung-joon started. Some commentators have called it’El Niño pitcher’ at all. Still, Samsung fans liked it as’a computer pitcher who beats opponents cleverly’, but most of the rest hated it as’a strange pitcher that makes baseball uninteresting’. So, there was often a debate at drinking parties where Samsung fans and fans from other teams were mixed. As such arguments prolonged, the logic disappeared and the force was rampant. Sometimes the emotions reached just before the injury, but it was also the’fun of sports’.
But when those debates go out of sport, they create serious problems. Even more so when you enter the realm of politics. It is not a big problem for Samsung fans to idealize Sung Joon’s pitching method too much and other team fans to blame him too much, but it is dangerous to look at objective facts too subjectively depending on political tendencies.
It is a good case to discuss the corona 19 quarantine and vaccine. Both those who support the government and those who criticize the government make arguments by interpreting objective facts too subjectively.
One side distrusts the government’s first AstraZeneca vaccine and praises Pfizer-Modena’s mRNA vaccine. They criticize the AstraZeneca vaccine as’cheap crappy’ and shout’Get the mRNA vaccine right now!’ The other side showed a behavior of idealizing the AstraZeneca vaccine that the government obtained first, but when other countries started vaccinating mRNAs, they argued that’the people cannot be tested in vivo with an incomplete vaccine’ He even denied that it was the best way to end it.
Even those who are in responsible positions, such as politicians and bureaucrats, or who claim to be experts in their own way, join the ranks. They accuse each other of being’unscientific and emotional agitators’, but when it comes to scrutiny, they seem to be swearing at their reflection in the mirror.
Of course, blindly biting and biting in politics has been common in the past. However, the reason why the discourse over corona 19 quarantine and vaccine is dangerous is that a poisonous mushroom called’anti-vaccine theory’ grows in the place of such agitation and criticism.
Once the anti-vaccine theory takes root, it seldom disappears, and there is a high possibility that it will adversely affect not only Corona 19 but also other infectious diseases to come. Therefore, before distorting objective facts in accordance with your political orientation, I hope you take the results seriously.
