Moon Dong-ju, the 'future of Hanwha's mound' who faced Ryu Hyun-jin, pitched in the Hanwha team's own Blue and White game with 3 scoreless innings... Preparing for the opening game by appearing in two exhibition games in the future.

Even in chilly weather, the maximum speed is 144 km/h... Show off your good condition. https://www.casinositeking.com

Ryu Hyun-jin (36), who wore the Hanwha Eagles uniform in the KBO League for the first time in 12 years, was in vain.

He rarely had a ball that went out of the strike zone, and he took the steps to prepare for the opening game of the KBO League smoothly, reaching a maximum speed of 144 km/h (Measured by Eagles TV YouTube, 143 km/h by club).

Ryu Hyun-jin started the club's own practice game held at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 7th and left the mound after throwing 46 pitches in 3 innings, allowing 1 hit, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts, and 1 run.

He threw 23 fastballs, 10 curves, 9 changeups, and 4 cutters each, awakening his sense of real-life skills.

He also showed off his stability as a master of ball control, commanding the MLB mound with 30 strikes and 16 balls out of 46 pitches.

Although it was a Blue and White match, it has been 4,172 days since Ryu Hyun-jin stood on the mound in Daejeon since the Nexen (now Kiwoom) Heroes match on October 4, 2012, before advancing to MLB.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who dominated the MLB mound for 11 years until last season, announced his return to the KBO League by signing an eight-year contract with Hanwha worth a total of 17 billion won last month.

He joined the team camp in Okinawa, Japan on the 23rd of last month and successfully pitched two bullpen pitches and one live pitch (pitching with the batter standing up like in a real game).

Ryu Hyun-jin, who was playing in his first actual game since returning to Hanwha, recorded a top speed of 144 km/h on the speed gun.

Even though several players wore neck warmers due to the chilly weather that day, Ryu Hyun-jin's speed was 5 km per hour faster than the maximum speed of 139 km per hour during a live pitch on the 2nd, just five days ago.

Starting from the first inning, Ryu Hyun-jin cleanly set up three batters with 15 pitches and two strikeouts.

He threw a high fastball to the first hitter, Jeong Eun-won, at a ball count of 2 balls and 2 strikes, and struck out the pitcher.

In this game where the Automatic Ball Decision System (ABS) was applied, the 'robot referee' judged Ryu Hyun-jin's high ball as a strike.

Then, second batter Moon Hyun-bin hit a ground ball to third base. https://justpaste.it/blxcp

The second ball thrown to Moon Hyun-bin went up to 144 km/h.

And third batter Kim Tae-yeon threw an outside backdoor cutter after a five-pitch match, resulting in a looking strikeout.

In the second inning, fourth batter Chae Eun-seong hit a double to left field.

Ryu Hyun-jin hit the ball well toward his body, but Chae Eun-seong sent the ball deep into left field with an effortless and light swing.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who cleared the follow-up hitter Lee Jin-young with an infield grounder, sent second base runner Chae Eun-seong to third base with a wild pitch, perhaps because Ha Joo-seok's control was slightly shaken during Ha Joo-seok's at-bat, and also allowed Ha Joo-seok to walk.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who gave up 7th batter Lee Jae-won a sacrifice fly to center field and allowed 1 run, grounded 8th batter Lee Myeong-ki on the first pitch and ended the second inning.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who was on the mound in the third inning, struck out Park Sang-eon with a fly ball and Kim Kang-min with a missed swing.

And the mission was completed by setting up Eun-Won Jeong with a fly ball to left field.

Last year, Moon Dong-joo, who became the first Hanwha player to win the KBO League Rookie of the Year award in 17 years since Ryu Hyun-jin in 2006 and emerged as the future of Hanwha's mound, competed against his idol, Ryu Hyun-jin, and threw courageously.

As measured by the club, he pitched 53 pitches, 2 hits, and 1 strikeout over 3 innings using various pitches such as fastballs (35 pitches), curves (12 pitches), sliders (3 pitches), cutters (2 pitches), and changeups (1 pitch), with a maximum speed of 148 km/h. It was sealed without conceding a goal. https://chart-studio.plotly.com/dashboard/casinositeking:4

Ryu Hyun-jin, who smoothly awakened his practical sense in the Blue and White game, is scheduled to appear in two KBO exhibition games, against the KIA Tigers on the 12th and against the Lotte Giants on the 17th.

The KBO regular season opening game scheduled to be played is against the Jamsil LG Twins on the 23rd.
