One of the top rookies in professional baseball.
Hanwha pitcher Kim Seo-hyun is predicting an active season this season by throwing a 150km fastball in an exhibition game.

Kim Seo-hyun, who joined Hanwha with the first overall pick in last year’s rookie draft, threw a fastball that exceeded 150 km/h from the first appearance of his demonstration game.
He also clenched his fists after striking out his first pro against KIA Kim Ho-ryeong.
Although his pitching was a bit shaky, he showed off a bold pitch and received the attention of coach Subero.
“I understand that the ballpark’s electronic board has recorded up to 157 km/h. I can say that my physical condition is still the best.”
The fastball is her main weapon as she threw a ball at 160 km/h in high school, but Kim Seo-hyun was strongly stimulated by watching the WBC.
He was particularly mesmerized by the last ball thrown by Ohtani.
“I think it was a tournament that I really wanted to attend to the point of envy. (Ohtani’s ball) bends a lot, so I really wanted to learn that slider, and it made me want to bring it.”
Kim Seo-hyun said that she would use it as an opportunity to become more mature about the SNS gossip controversy that arose during field training and the subsequent punishment.
[Kim Seo-hyun/Hanhwa] “I lost a lot of weight and
was busy noticing. Since I’m still new to society, I think (I think) that I need to learn more and go on a path to become more mature.”
It didn’t work out, but Seohyun Kim is already waiting for her professional debut as well as the WBC in three years.스포츠토토
“I have been working hard for three years to build up my body, so I have a lot of thoughts about seizing that opportunity. I don’t like running away, so I think it’s good to look forward to it (even in international competitions).”
