Jang Hyun-seok ‘5 innings, 10K’… Final inspection ‘No abnormalities’


Pitcher Jang Hyun-seok, the only high school student selected for the Asian Games baseball team, went through his final actual review ahead of his convocation. He raised expectations with his consistently powerful pitching. 

This is reporter Bae Jeong-hoon.


Jang Hyun-seok, who joined the LA Dodgers in the Major League last month, wore Dodgers practice uniform and warmed up before the game.

He took the mound as the starting pitcher for Masan Yong Mago in a practice game against Gimhae High School and took the final practice check under the watchful eyes of the national team’s coaching staff. Even though he had not played in an official game since the President’s Cup tournament early last month, his powerful performance was still there.

He gave up one run due to a defensive error, but pitched well with 10 strikeouts in 5 innings, no earned runs, and a top speed of 150 km/h.토토사이트

Jang Hyun-seok, who completed the final inspection neatly, once again strengthened his determination to win a gold medal with his professional seniors.

NC Koo Chang-mo, who had even raised the possibility of being eliminated from the entry due to injury, competed in practice for the first time in three months today (19th) against KT 2nd team.

He recorded a fastball speed of up to 145 km/h, struck out two, and allowed no runs in two innings, but it is unclear whether he would have met manager Ryu Joong-il’s expectations.
