Kim Seohyun joins Hanwha Camp, “Temporary number 126, arrested in middle school…””
“Super Rookie” Kim Seo-hyun (18) appeared at Hanwha’s finishing camp.
Kim Seo-hyun and other new Hanwha players in 2023 joined the finishing camp held at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 1st. Hanwha’s final camp began on the 17th of last month, but those who are scheduled to join high school can join from November due to regulations.
Kim Seo-hyun, who received attention as the No. 1 overall draft pick for the 2023 KBO rookie, also wore a Hanwha training suit and trained with his seniors for the first time. It was the first day of training, so I warmed up with simple training and catch ball. He will play his first bullpen pitching on the 3rd or 4th after entering the long toss from the 2nd.
Kim Seo-hyun said, “It was my first time, so I didn’t know how to train. I thought I would have fun in a bright atmosphere, but when I was training, everyone focused, he said. “The top priority is to adapt to the team during the final camp.” “I need to improve my individual skills, but it’s important to mix well with the team,” he shouted team first.
Kim Seohyun, who made his body through personal training at Seoul High School before joining the team, said, “I wanted to join the final camp as soon as possible. I have been exercising at school because I have a desire to play in the first division next year. I prepared as I had to join the finishing camp. He said, “I did bullpen pitching and weight training so that it wouldn’t be too much.”
Kim Seo-hyun’s back number has yet to be confirmed. I received 126 as the temporary number for the finishing camp. Kim Seo-hyun laughed, saying, “When I was in my first year of middle school, my speed was 126km,” and added, “I threw 114km for the first time in middle school, but my speed has risen since I set my form free.” “In the winter (when I was a sophomore), I came up to 135 kilometers,” he recalled.
Kim Seohyun, who has been known for his fastballs in the 140km range since middle school, threw 150km fastballs since his second year of high school last year. This year, he showed off his infinite potential with a fireballer, raising his maximum speed to 156 kilometers.
He also had a brief meeting with coach Carlos Subero and the coaching staff. Coach Subero advised, “Have fun and compete in good faith,” and talked about simple things, including Kim Seo-hyun’s high school position. Kim Seo-hyun’s future position will be decided through the final camp.
Kim Seo-hyun, who took his first step as a Hanwha player, said, “There are only a few months left until next season. I want to help the team perform well next year, he said. “Personally, I want to be bigger than now.” “I think my upper body should be bigger than it was in high school,” he said, adding that he will increase his strength through weight training throughout the winter.
