Jang Hyun-seok “The goal is 160 km… I will be the first”

There is a high school baseball pitcher who challenges 160 km/h, which is called the ‘restriction of dreams’. Let’s meet Jang Hyun-seok, who is aiming to advance to the major leagues with his fiery fastball.

This is reporter Jeon Young-min.

, who hadn’t played in an official game for a year due to a shoulder injury after attending Yongma High School, immediately drew attention with his amazing fastball last year in his sophomore year.

He threw 149 km per hour in March, and took a whopping 156 km in the Blue Dragon in July, emerging as a ‘special top prospect’.

third year, I will challenge 160km, which no one has ever reached in an official high school baseball game.

Previously, promising players famous for their fastballs, such as Kiwoom Jang Jae-young, Hanwha Moon Dong-ju and Kim Seo-hyun, and Pittsburgh pitcher Shim Jun-seok, have never been recorded in high school baseball. 안전놀이터

Big league scouts are noticing the rapid growth, so I set a higher goal.

Until last year, I said that my goal was to be the first pick in the KBO League rookie draft, but now I am dreaming of becoming a Major League player.
