“Players who don’t have much experience are surprised.”

Moon Dong-ju made his first start in the second half in an away game against Kiwoom Heroes in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 26th. Moon Dong-ju, who took the mound exactly two weeks after the match against LG in Jamsil on the 12th, recorded 6 hits (home runs), 2 walks, 1 strikeout and 2 runs in 5 innings. His fastball speed ranged from 147 to 157 km/h.

Coach Choi Won-ho said, “Gocheok is the only one among 10 stadiums that does not have a double pitching board because of international competitions. So players who haven’t used it often slip when they go up. I told him to throw it lightly even if it was.”

Director Choi continued, “And yesterday, there was only one tripartite. I threw 4 out of 5 innings with runners. Then, even with the same number of pitches, the fatigue weight is much different. It’s not just the number of pitches that are replaced, but those things too. We have to see each other,” he added.
