Kim Seung-hyun (31), a right-handed fireballer who was called ‘Oh Seung-hwan of the college league’ during his time at Konkuk University, is making a new start at KIA.
Kim Seung-hyun 바카라 made his professional debut in 2016 after receiving Samsung’s 2nd 1st round nomination. Kim Seung-hyun, whose main weapon was a fast ball of 150 km, took the mound in 91 games in the first team and recorded 2 wins, 8 losses and 4 holds. His earned run average is 5.51.

On the afternoon of the 11th, Kim Seung-hyun, who was contacted by a reporter, said, “After going to Australia, KIA contacted me and gave me an opportunity to join. Thank you for giving me the opportunity.”
Kim Seung-hyun, whose strength is a fast ball, focused on improving his breaking ball while playing in Australia. He said, “He felt that he couldn’t just do it with a fastball, so he practiced a lot of breaking balls. Instead of adding a new pitch, he focused on making the existing pitch more sophisticated”. Seunghyun Kim says:
What kind of team is KIA seen from the outside? He said, “When I was at Samsung, I got the impression that KIA is Korea’s New York Yankees. It’s because the fans’ passion is strong and it’s a prestigious club with a tradition. I haven’t experienced it yet, but there are many things I look forward to.
He predicted that it would be a great help for adapting to the team because there are many players with whom he is close friends, such as Kang Yi-jun, Byeon Woo-hyuk, Kim Yu-shin, and Lee Jun-young.
Kim Seung-hyun said it was important to reduce the ups and downs in order to successfully settle in the KIA.
“When I play baseball, there are good times and bad times, but I want to show an image without ups and downs. The difference between good times and bad times is huge, so I was left with regret, but I want to hear that I am a steady player by reducing the ups and downs.” 바카라
