SSG Landers coach Kim Won-hyung, a former KBO 134-win legend, generously applauded Moon Dong-ju (Hanwha) for breaking the 160km mark.
Moon Dong-ju set a new record for the highest restraint by a domestic player by shooting a maximum of 160 km in the Gwangju KIA game on the 12th.
Manager Kim Won-hyeong, who met with reporters ahead of the Daegu Samsung match on the 13th, said, “Moon Dong-ju showed that even a domestic player can throw 160km. “Moon Dong-ju has all the speed, the ability to use a breaking ball, and control,” he predicted, “if he continues to show the same appearance in the future, he will become a pitcher who will lead Korean baseball.” 메이저놀이터
Director Kim Won-hyeong thought that speed should be innate. He said, “Improvement of speed does not come from hard work. I also made various attempts in my desire to throw 150km, but it didn’t work out as I wanted. There has to be a part that has to be born,” he said.
Director Kim Won-hyung also added, “It is not only possible to have good physical condition, but to have all parts, such as technical and training,” he added.
Taking Uhm Jung-wook (former SK pitcher), who was called a “bullet-ridden man” in the past, as an example, he said, “Eom Jung-wook couldn’t throw up to 150 km during spring camp in his first year, but his speed increased little by little.”
Director Kim Won-hyung said, “Rookie Song Young-jin also threw about 145 km in high school, but now he throws up to 147-148 km. He’s only been around for a while, and the improvement in his velocity seems to be proportional to his weight. He said it was because he came pro and ate well and trained hard.”
Among the SSG pitchers, who is the candidate to record 160km? Coach Won-hyung Kim cited Jo Yo-han, who is serving in Sangmu, as an example and predicted, “If he feels comfortable after being discharged, he will be able to throw a fast ball.”
Meanwhile, SSG’s starting lineup consisted of designated hitter Choo Shin-soo, center fielder Choi Ji-hoon, third baseman Choi Jeong-second baseman Choi Joo-hwan, left fielder Heredia, right fielder Hanyu-seom, shortstop Park Seong-han, first baseman Jeon Eui-san, and catcher Lee Jae-won. /firstname.lastname@example.org
