Sajik Kim Soo-hyun heats up the All-Star Game with a hit off Prince Daejeon’s 159-kilometer fastball.
The KBO League All-Star Game was held in Busan for the first time in 16 years. Despite the inclement weather, the fun of watching baseball was multiplied by the various performances prepared by the players who participated in the All-Star Game.
One of the many highlights of the day was the matchup between Sharing All-Star Moon Dong-ju (Hanwha) and Dream All-Star Yoo Kang-nam (Lotte).
This season, Lotte’s Yoo Kang-nam and Hanwha’s Moon Dong-joo have a combined batting average of 0.667 with three hits, two doubles, and one walk. Yoo Kang-nam had a strong showing against Moon Dong-joo, a hard-throwing pitcher.
Moon Dong-ju took the mound as the eighth pitcher for the Nanum All-Stars. He threw a light 142km fastball against the first batter, Dream All-Star Kim Hyun-jun. In the second inning, he threw a 145-kilometer fastball for a grounder in front of the pitcher.
After the first inning, Jung Soo-bin’s fly ball was high in the infield, and third baseman Roh Si-hwan signaled for the catch. Third baseman Noh Si-hwan catches the ball in front of the third base dugout. Pitcher Moon Dong-joo prepares to catch the ball with his glove. At that moment, third baseman Noh Si-hwan’s throw flew in a direction where no one could catch it. The junior Moon made a gesture of disbelief toward the senior Noh.
Moon took the mound and threw five pitches, none of them over 150 kilometers. Once his shoulder loosened up, he started throwing hard fastballs. 메이저사이트주소
The first pitch he threw to Yoo Kang-nam, who came to bat after the second inning, touched 156 kilometers, and a roar went up. He then threw a 157-kilometer fastball that looked like it was light, but it hit the mitt of catcher Park Se-hyuk. 1B 1S Moon Dong-ju, the “Prince of Daejeon,” throws an outside fastball that is clocked at 159 mph on the scoreboard. Yoo Kang-nam, ‘Sajik Kim Soo-hyun’, hits a line drive into center field, out of the reach of the second baseman.
After hitting a fastball that reached nearly 160 kilometers thrown by Moon Dong-ju, the “Daejeon Prince,” Yoo Kang-nam, “Sajik Kim Soo-hyun,” smiled broadly as he was congratulated by first base coach Koo Ja-rook.
Baseball fans who filled Sajik Stadium to watch the All-Star Game even during the demonic rainy season enjoyed watching the exciting matchup between pitcher Moon Dong-ju and batter Yoo Kang-nam.
