149 km/h bang! Kim Hwi-gun flew from Jeju… Rather, Jang Hyun-seok is holding his breath.

The competition of the top round candidates is getting closer. The pitchers are so good that I wonder if they are over-pace because their pace is so fast.

Above all, the player who stands out in this Jeju League is Kim Hwi-gun (3rd year of Whimoon High School). Kim Hwi-gun threw a fastball with a speed of 149 km/h, the highest for professional clubs, in this Jeju League. In the speed gun of a certain club, a maximum of 146 km/h was recorded in some games, and 149 km/h on other days. In the Baemyeong Classic, a speed of 148 km/h was recorded. Above all, it is evaluated that the ball is more stable than before.

An official from a club scout said, “Wheegan’s command is good in this league. I feel much more stable than before. In fact, when I saw it only two months ago, I felt like I wasn’t ready, but at this point, it’s good.” Another high school official said, “The changing ball was also good. The condition looks good,” he said.

On the other hand, Hyunsuk Jang is rather adjusting his pace. In this Jeju League, Jang Hyun-seok’s highest speed based on professional teams was 152 km/h. However, in the Whimoon Classic match on the 21st, the speed decreased sharply 메이저놀이터

. Excessive face-up in still chilly weather can cause injury. Whimungo was thoroughly blocked by Masan Yongmago with no hits, but Jang Hyun-seok got the first hit in the 8th inning.

The recent rise of pitchers is staggering. Ahead of the season, each pitcher is scrambling to increase their speed. Another club official said, “I wonder if the pitchers are overdoing it. It’s nice to come up unscathed, but speed isn’t everything. This is the pre-season practice phase. It is important to go in and do well during the season. You don’t know when things will get better or worse, so you have to keep paying attention.”

Recently, Hanwha Eagles general manager Sohn Hyuk publicly said, “Anyone of Jang Hyun-seok and Hwang Jun-seo can come” in an interview, and it felt like the TOP2 was becoming more solid. In addition, Kim Hwi-gun, Son Hyun-ki (Jeonju High School senior), Yuk Seon-yeop (Jangchung High School senior), Jeon Mir (Gyeongbuk High School senior), etc. are joining the competition, and the 2024 rookie draft is making a point from before the season.
