Youngjin Song (18), a rookie pitcher for the professional baseball SSG Landers, made a ‘surprisingly’ good pitch in his first start in his career.
Song Young-jin started as a starting pitcher in the 2023 KBO League NC Dinos home game held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 14th and scored 7 strikeouts until the 5th inning and blocked it with no runs.
He pitched impressively, allowing three walks on four walks, but not allowing a single hit for the NC batters.
Song Young-jin, who threw a ball with a maximum speed of 151 km, also stood out with a sharp slider and forkball.

In the second inning, he struck out three batters in a row.
Song Young-jin, who had been marching perfect until 1 out in the 4th inning, let Park Se-hyeok walk and allowed the first runner.
However, SSG caught Park Se-hyuk, who attempted to steal second base, and finished the inning without a crisis.
In the 5th inning, Song Yeong-jin walked Park Seok-min and Kim Joo-won with a fit ball, leading to 2 out 1 and 2 base, but finished off his role by striking out Han Seok-hyun.

Song Young-jin, who made his debut as a bullpen pitcher in the game against the KIA Tigers on the 2nd, blocked 1⅔ innings with 1 hit, 2 walks and no runs.
In the second game against the Hanwha Eagles on the 8th, he struck out 3 in 3 innings and allowed only 2 walks without a hit.
Song Young-jin, who received passing marks after two appearances in the bullpen, is expected to perform well this season as he pitched better than expected in the game where he started as a starting pitcher in place of Kim Gwang-hyun, who suffered a shoulder injury.
