The Doosan Bears discovered Jeong Cheol-won (24) from Ansan Technical High School in May of the 2022 season and enjoyed it. And 2023, one year later. I look forward to another Ansan technical high school graduate.
Doosan changed the entry ahead of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ kt Wiz match held at Suwon kt Wiz Park on the 19th. Pitcher Kim Kang-ryul (35) headed to the Futures League, and left-handed pitcher Kim Ho-jun (25) will replace him.카지노사이트
Coach Lee explained the background of the call-up before the game, saying, “Kim Ho-joon has good pitch, but his control was a problem. In the Futures League, his control has improved a lot, and his pitch is the best among the midfielders.”
Kim Ho-joon, from the independent team Paju Challengers, signed a contract as a training player after the 2017 season and wore a Doosan uniform. He played mainly as a reliever in the Futures League, posting a career average of 4.47 with 15 holds and 8 saves in 130 games, 167 innings. He has a fast ball that reaches 146 km/h with his highest velocity, and has many advantages, such as using a slider and a forkball.
In the middle of the last 2020 season, he enlisted as a social service agent and was released last year to solve military problems. In the Futures League this year, he is recording an ERA of 4.50 with 1 win, 2 holds and 2 saves in 13 games and 14 innings.
Before the game, Kim Ho-jun said through the club, “I was shocked when I was contacted yesterday (18th). This is my first 1st team registration after 7 years of wearing a Doosan uniform. I feel good and excited. I want to show you as much as I can prepare well in the 2nd team “He made a strong determination.
In May of last year, Doosan made use of Jeong Cheol-won, who graduated from Ansan Technical High School, to accumulate many wins. Jeong Cheol-won played 58 games and recorded an average ERA of 3.10 in 72⅔innings with 23 holds and 3 saves. He was reborn as a bullpen hit product, and at the KBO Awards Ceremony after the season, he received 74 votes out of 107 and became the Rookie of the Year.
Inspired by that energy, another Ansan Technical High School pitcher, Kim Ho-jun, also opened the curtain in earnest. On the 19th, he pitched in relief against kt Wiz in the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Suwon kt Wiz Park.
He got on the mound as the team’s third pitcher in the bottom of the eighth inning with the team trailing 1–6. After one out, he hit Park Min-seok and gave Kang Baek-ho a walk, leading to a crisis with 1 out and 1st and 2nd base, but he struck out the follow-up batter Kim Min-hyeok and turned Moon Sang-cheol into a floating ball in right field, ending his first team appearance in his debut.
The speed of the four-seam fastball (14 pitches) reached a maximum of 146 km, and the slider (8 pitches) against a left-handed batter led the bat with a sharp trajectory.
Will Kim Ho-joon, a rising star who made his debut, show good pitching like his junior at Ansan Technical High School, Jeong Cheol-won?
