‘160km’ Moon Dong-ju has all the pitches and pitches… The 134-win coach also acknowledged “Pitcher to lead Korean baseball”
SSG Landers coach Kim Won-hyung스포츠토토, who won 134 individual wins during his active career, also recognized the talent of Hanwha Eagles hopeful Mun Dong-ju (20).
Ahead of the 3rd game of the season against KT Wiz held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 20th, coach Kim looked at the young pitchers who showed a strong presence in each team this year and said, “Moon Dong-ju said, “What others do not have is to play with the biggest weapon.” .
Fastball pitchers are attracting a lot of attention in this year’s KBO League. Lee Eui-ri, a left-hander in his third year with the KIA Tigers, exceeded 150 km/h, and SSG 1st-nominated rookie Lee Ro-wun made a relief mound during a home game against the KIA Tigers on the 2nd, which was his debut match, and threw a fastball of 150 km/h from the first pitch, surprising him.
In addition, Hanwha ‘monster rookie’ Kim Seo-hyun, who was called up to the first team on the 19th, made his debut against the Doosan Bears and pitched in the top of the 7th inning, throwing a fastball at 158 km/h based on the pitch tracking system (PTS) of KBO’s official record statistics company, Sports 2I. . All attention was focused on his intense debut.
Among them, Moon Dong-ju, a second-year pro, is considered the best. On the 12th, against the KIA Tigers in Gwangju, right-handed right-hander Moon Dong-ju threw a fastball at 160 km/h for the first time as a domestic pitcher in the KBO League.
Moon Dong-ju is not only fast in arrest. He recorded 1 win, 1 loss and an average ERA of 1.08 in 3 games before being expunged from the first team on the 19th for a break. Just looking at his record proves that he is not just a fast pitcher.
SSG coach Kim said, “Each person has different criteria for judgment. He may prioritize speed, or he may prioritize control. But both of them have to go well together,” he said. I think he will become a pitcher who can lead Korea in the future.”
Coach Kim expects and pays attention to Moon Dong-joo as a baseball player who is worried about the future of Korean baseball, even though he is a Hanwha pitcher, not SSG.
