With the start of the game, KIA encountered the unexpected bad news of the departure of the starting pitcher. After two shots in the bottom of the first inning, a two-seam fastball thrown by Kim Geon-guk brushed KT Park Byeong-ho’s helmet and received an automatic headshot order. It was fortunate that Park Byung-ho was not seriously injured, but the KIA bench was greatly embarrassed by the sudden bad news.
Kim Jae-yeol, who hastily relieved himself from the bullpen, climbed onto the mound. Kim Jae-yeol wore a Lotte uniform in the 2nd 7th round of the 2014 rookie draft, but was released after 3 years without debuting in the first team. Afterwards, while serving in the defense industry, he built up his body at the baseball club training ground of a nearby university, and never let go of baseball by playing in baseball, a member of society. At this time, KIA, who was interested in the power of the ball that Kim Jae-yeol appeared on the YouTube channel, reached out and wore a professional uniform again in 2020. It’s the Tigers uniform, not the Giants.
Kim Jae-yeol, whose life is a drama, is always desperate. Kim Jae-yeol has already reached his 4th year of debut in the first team. He had a powerful fastball that reached 150km and a big curveball, but his control was often lacking. Kim Jae-yeol, who started this season in the 2nd team and received starting classes, was called up to the 1st team in June and pitched in 3 games until today.오래된 토토사이트
