Masan High School won its first victory in the first round of the E-Mart Cup held in Gyeongju on March 23, defeating Cheongdam High School, the main player in last year’s golden lion storm.
Above all, the performance of the four sophomores shone. Kim Yun-ha, Park Seong-bin, Ok Jin-yul, and Shin Min-woo.
Masan High School defeated Gyeongnam High School in the second round of the preliminaries for prestigious high school baseball matches held at Gijang Baseball Stadium in Busan on March 10th. Defeating the strongest team in Busan means that Masan High School has potential.
Kim Yun-ha (sophomore) is the ace of Masan High School this season. She is over 190cm tall, and she has recorded a speed of up to 143km/h. During her last competitive high school competition, she played a major role in beating Gyeongnam High School, the most prestigious team in Busan, and Kim Yoon-ha.
She won a complete match next year against sophomore ace Park Si-won (sophomore), who is considered the biggest player in the Busan area. At that time, he took the mound as a starter and recorded 7K and 1 run in 5 innings. However, the game on the first day of E-Mart Bae was somewhat sluggish. Kim Yun-ha, who took the mound as a starter, gave up three runs and four hits in 2.2 innings and passed the mound to Park Seong-bin.
The same goes for catcher Shin Min-woo (sophomore). At that time, Shin Min-woo hit two doubles against Park Si-won. His first double hit was a home run hit that hit the fence. The stolen base was a bonus. Even in the E-Mart Cup Cheongdam Classic, Shin Min-woo’s blow was brilliant. On this day, Shin Min-woo, who appeared as the designated hitter No. 6 and wore a mask, recorded 2 hits, 1 walk and 1 RBI in 3 at-bats. He is also a promising sophomore catcher who is considered a candidate for the pro nomination for next season.
Park Seong-bin (sophomore) is a sidearm worth paying attention to next season. He has good speed and good control. On this day, Park Seong-bin threw 101 pitches and became the leading player in the victory with 5.1 innings, 6 walks, 6 strikeouts and no runs.
Ok Jin-yul (2nd grade) has just started pitching and his pitching form is still very rough. However, he is also a right-handed orthodox player who is tall and throws a good ball close to 140 km/h. Ok Jin-yul contributed to the team’s victory by striking out two in the ninth inning with a 5-3 lead in the E-Mart Cup Cheongdam Classic.
Cheongdam High School is a team that made it to the final last year by defeating numerous strong players such as Daejeon High School in the Golden Lion.
Although they lost to Gyeongnam High School,토토사이트 led by Kim Beom-seok and Shin Young-woo, and ended up in the runner-up, their ‘Miracle of the Underdog’ left a deep impression on many high school baseball officials. However, in the first competition of 2023, due to the performance of the 4th graders of Masan High School, they unfortunately knelt down in the first round.
