Seohyun Kim. Born in Cheonan, Chungcheongnam-do in May 2004, he is the physical owner of 188cm and 91kg.
He was nominated by the Hanwha Eagles with the first overall pick in the 2023 KBO Rookie Draft, and received high expectations with a down payment of 500 million won.
Shim Jun-seok (pitcher, Pittsburgh Pirates), known as Kim Seo-hyun’s rival, declared that he would advance to the United States and did not participate in the draft.
He graduated from Seoul High School because he moved to Seoul from the age of two. In conclusion, he came back as the son of Chungnam again.
-‘A player who is left-handed but pitches with his right hand!’
Seohyun Kim is originally left-handed. This is quite an unusual choice considering that usually left-handed pitchers have several advantages that make right-handed pitchers pitch left-handed.
According to the player, when he started playing baseball after following his older brother, he did not have a left-handed glove, so he became a right-handed pitcher.
Considering that he can hit 120km/h with his left hand and accurately throw from the outfield fence at Seoul High School to home, he might have shown great performance with left-handed throwing.
Seohyun Kim, an unrivaled four-dimensional player, is a three-quarter type pitcher and is characterized by her free use of release points and pitching form.
However, it is difficult to say that he is a perfect three quarterer, because he throws three quarters at the beginning of the game and changes his pitching form to sidearm after the 4th and 5th innings.
The reaction around Kim Seo-hyun is generally said to be a ‘four-dimensional player’.
To briefly introduce an anecdote that Seoul High School coach Yoo Jung-min revealed in an interview, coach Yoo, who saw Kim Seo-hyun, who was throwing with difficulty standing at one end of the pitcher’s plate, asked, “Why do you throw like that?” “He is said to have said
Also, one day, when I asked him to throw the ball from a lower point than the sidearm, he said, “If you throw a lot, the height of your arm goes down.
I wonder if this kind of unique idea has led to various release points and pitching forms.
So, it can be said that Seohyun Kim’s pitching form changes according to ‘situation’ rather than ‘type of pitch’.
He throws fastballs with a maximum speed of 156km per hour on various pitches such as two-seam fastball, curveball, changeup, and slider.
Looking at Seohyun Kim’s performance last year, he appeared in 18 games and threw 55 and 1/3 innings, going 3-3 with an earned run average of 1.31.
While striking out 72, he only gave up 20 walks, so the game operation is also evaluated as stable.
-”My role model is Choi Dong-won!”
The gold-rimmed glasses he wears are also unique.
Originally, it’s not that my eyes are bad, but I have said that I wear glasses because of pollen allergy.
I picked the late Choi Dong-won온라인카지노, as my role model, and it reminds me of that.
Many pitchers are interested in the starting position, but Seohyun Kim seems to be more interested in finishing.
He appeared on KBS N SPORTS <Baseball Intervention> and while playing the balance game, he chose to save among 10 wins as a starting pitcher and 30 saves as a closer, and he also expressed his aspirations, saying, “I will become a Hanwha closer.” no see.
Hanwha coach Carlos Subero also said, “I’m thinking of using Kim Seo-hyun as a bullpen,” so he doesn’t seem to play as a starter.
A monster newcomer whose skills are beyond reproach, there has been controversy lately.
This is because Kim Seo-hyun, who has not yet made his professional debut, left a message on his private SNS account attacking his coaches and fans with slang words.
Due to this, he was excluded from training and was disciplined by the club, and he apologized to the fans and team seniors, saying, “There is no excuse and I am really sorry.”
“..(Omitted) Hanwha fans cheered me on a lot. I always feel grateful… I will do my best in my position to repay those expectations
Some baseball fans respond that “it went well before things got bigger”, but it seems that it is still not enough to erase the cold eyes of many baseball fans.
Baseball fans want their teams and players to do well.
But fans don’t necessarily love a player in proportion to their performance.
In particular, they are Hanwha Eagles fans who are recognized by fans of other teams.
If Hanwha, which has been in last place for three consecutive years, and fans loved the team and players for their performance and skills, there might not be Hanwha now.
This is a part that many baseball fans hope that Kim Seo-hyun will become more mature through this incident.
I want to prove my heart for the team and the heart for the fans, not my skills.
