Hanwha Eagles’ ‘super rookie’ Kim Seo-hyeon (19) had her first bullpen pitching at spring camp.
According to the Hanwha team on the 6th (Korean time), Kim Seo-hyun pitched in the bullpen for the first time during the spring camp in Bellbank Park, Mesa, Arizona, USA.
Kim Seo-hyun threw 21 pitches with a mix of fastballs, curveballs, sliders, and changeups, and the highest speed of his fastball was 151km per hour.
Kim Seo-hyun said, “I threw with 70 to 75 percent power,” and “I threw while paying attention to balance and control, and if I gave myself a score, it would be around 60 to 70 points.” 온라인바카라
The speed of 150km per hour for a fastball is the boundary line that determines whether a pitcher has a fastball. Kim Seo-hyun proved that she is a promising ‘young gun’ by easily passing 150 km even though it was not a power pitch.
Seohyun Kim, a graduate of Seoul High School, joined Hanwha with the first overall pick in the rookie draft last year.
At the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) U-18 Baseball World Cup held in September last year, he threw a ball at 101 miles per hour (about 163 km) on the electronic board and drew attention.
Kim Seo-hyun is sweating hard with the goal of making 50 saves as the team’s closer.
“I want to improve my balance during the rest of the camp,” he said, “I will pay attention not to get injured and do more strengthening exercises.”
Meanwhile, Felix Pena, who renewed his contract with Hanwha’s new foreign pitcher Birch Smith, started pitching for the first time in the bullpen.
Assuming an inning shift, Smith pitched 22 pitches, then threw an additional 21 pitches after the break. The highest speed was recorded at 149 km.
“It’s still early in camp, so there’s more to be done,” said Smith.
Pena threw 28 pitches and recorded a maximum velocity of 147 km. “He’s in good shape, he threw all his pitches just as I thought he would,” Pena said.
Hanwha pitching coach Jose Rosado, who watched Kim Seo-hyun and the two foreigners pitch, said, “I am grateful that everyone has prepared well for the offseason.” said.
