As soon as pitcher Kim Seo-hyun, a rookie high school graduate of Hanwha, made his debut yesterday (19th), he threw a fiery fastball at 158 ​​km/h. Last week, pitcher Moon Dong-joo surpassed the 160 km mark, the ‘restriction of dreams’.
Fans are thrilled to see young pitchers putting balls into catcher’s mitts faster than the blink of an eye.

Kim Seo-hyun of Hanwha, who has been on the mound for the first time since his professional debut.

We start warming up by throwing 154km fastballs from the start.

He got two outs on a ground ball and struck out a swing, then threw a 158km fastball into the zone against the last batter.

His official record was 157.9 km, but the Hanwha team measured 160.1 km.

– “I was nervous until I went up, and I think I had the idea to enjoy the tension a little bit after I went up the mound.”

The restraint of Hanwha Moon Dong-ju, who was born 5 months earlier and was one year older, was more frightening.

With a whopping 160.1 km, he broke the Korean pitcher’s highest speed record in 11 years.

How fast is this ball?

Moon Dong-joo’s fastball left the hand 0.35 seconds, and Kim Seo-hyun’s ball hit the catcher’s mitt in 0.36 seconds.

That’s faster than the time it takes a human to blink – 0.4 seconds.

– “I am confident in my fastball. When I am in good shape, I think it is right to throw a fastball with confidence.”

Batters against fastballs are also in trouble.

Except for about 0.15 seconds when the swing comes out, you have to decide how to hit whether to endure or hit in 0.2 seconds.

– “The speedy ball parade started by 19-year-old Moon Dong-ju and Kim Seo-hyun, and a speed revolution is taking place in Korean baseball, where restrictions have been stagnant. I am Kim Han-joon of MBN News.”
