Han Hyun-hee (30), a 4 billion won submarine pitcher who returned to her hometown, showed off her prospects for the first year of transfer by showing power in her Lotte debut match.
Han Hyun-hee started the demonstration game against the Doosan Bears in the 2023 KBO League held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 14th and led the team to an 8-4 victory with 4 innings, 2 hits, 4 walks, 5 strikeouts and no runs. After the game, Lotte coach Larry Sutton said, “Hyeon-hee Han threw 4 powerful innings and brought the game. He applauded, saying, “It was an outstanding performance.
Han Hyun-hee, who we met after the game, said, “I was a little nervous when I first went up. He got better as he threw the ball,” he said. “Today’s game focused on control. My body is not yet at the point where I can raise the speed limit. He continued to throw the ball and was able to throw as he wanted, and the tension was relieved.”
Han Hyun-hee was stable enough to strike 32 out of 45 pitches (13 balls). Under the fastball with a maximum speed of 144 km, he used various breaking balls such as curve balls, sliders, and forkballs, but the slider’s pitch was particularly powerful.
However, Han Hyun-hee said, “Today’s slider was a little bad. So he talked with the coach, and as a result, it got better from the 3rd inning,” he said. I threw as the coaches ordered, so it went well.”
Regarding the battery breathing with Lee Jung-hoon, the same transfer student, “In fact, no matter who sits as the catcher, I just have to throw well. So it doesn’t matter much, but today, I thought that it would be nice if (Yu) Gangnam could play with my brother,” he said. You just have to do your best according to the coaches’ guidance,” he said.
Han Hyun-hee, who came out of Gyeongnam High School and joined the 2012 Nexen (currently Kiwoom) in the 2nd place in the 1st round, moved the team for the first time last January by playing free agency with Lotte for a total of 4 billion won in 3+1 years. It was the moment when Heroes One Club Man returned to his hometown after 11 years. 토토사이트
Life in Lotte and Busan is smooth. The steady training at the camp led to a good first field appearance on the day. Han Hyun-hee said, “I have a really good body. I measured InBody today, and the result was good. I am working as hard as I can to not be lazy,” he said. “Compared to the previous camp, the momentum this time was completely different. According to the coach’s standard, he may have ordered it moderately, but I decided to live or die.”
His newlywed life is also having a positive impact on baseball. Han Hyun-hee, who rang the wedding march on January 7th, “It’s really fun to play at home with my wife. Responsibility also arises. Her wife changes the juice every morning, so she eats it and goes to work,” she said with a happy smile.
Han Hyun-hee said in an interview on the return to spring camp on the 7th, “I also told his older brothers, and he said that he never wants to lose when he meets Kiwoom. I wonder if she will grit her teeth and throw it,” he declared war on her parents, drawing attention to her.
When asked what kind of reaction there was afterward at home, he said, “The Kiwoom players I know are not interested in other people’s work. I was a colleague in the past, but now I’m a stranger so I’m not interested,” he said, laughing, saying, “Of course, close hyungs will think, ‘Hyunhee can be like that’.”
