Carlos Subero (51), a former Hanwha legend who is three years older than Hanwha coach Dae-seong Koo (54), paid attention to the flawless perfect pitch.
On the 21st (Korean time), Major League Baseball’s official Instagram posted a pitching video of Koo Dae-sung, who is playing for Geelong Korea, an Australian professional baseball team.
Koo Dae-seong, who took the lead in the first generation of Geelong Korea, made his comeback in an away match against the Adelaide Giants held at Adelaide Stadium in Australia on the 19th.
Koo Dae-seong said, “I can wear the Geelong Korea uniform again because coach Lee Byeong-gyu and the club gave me permission. I debuted on the professional stage in 1993, so I can fill 30 years with this appearance.”
He continued, “I continued to build my body so that I could throw about 130 km. I want to help the junior players who will run together, and I will throw as many innings as possible to help the team.”
Koo Dae-seong took the mound as the fourth pitcher after starting pitchers Kim Jin-wook, Yang Kyung-mo and Lee Tae-gyu in the 8th inning, who were trailing 0-7. The three previous pitchers gave up 11 walks, but Koo Dae-seong blocked one inning cleanly. It was accompanied by two strikeouts. His highest speed was 117 km. Although he fell short of his target, his skillful pitching stood out. 카지노
MLB’s official Instagram explained, along with a video of Koo Dae-sung’s pitching, “The 53-year-old Dae-sung Koo is still perfectly dominating hitters.” Mets fans who watched Goo Dae-sung throwing in a New York Mets uniform in the past responded, “We have to bring him back.”
Choi Ji-man (32), who is playing for the Pittsburgh Pirates, also left a comment expressing his respect for the great senior’s achievements.
Meanwhile, Koo Dae-seong joined Binggrae (predecessor of Hanwha) in 1993 as the first designated player. He transferred to Japanese professional baseball Orix in 2001 and played for four years, and also played for the New York Mets in the major leagues. He returned to Hanwha in 2006 and was with Korean fans again until 2010.
With his active retirement in the KBO League, he entered the Australian League and played for the Sydney Blue Sox for two years from 2014. Koo Dae-seong, who made a big impact in Korean baseball history, was selected as one of the 40 Legends of the 40th anniversary of the KBO.
