Doosan Bears Kim Yu-seong (21) made his debut.
Kim Yoo-seong climbed the mound in the 8th inning, trailing 1-4 against SSG Landers held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 28th크크크벳. On this day, he recorded 1 inning, 2 walks, 1 strikeout and no runs. Although he was briefly shaken by his fielder’s error, Kim Yu-seong finished his debut with a scoreless pitch.
This is Kim Yoo-seong, who stood on the mound wearing a Doosan uniform. Kim Yu-seong, a native of Gimhae High School, was first nominated for the NC Dinos in 2021, but the nomination was withdrawn as school violence became known late in middle school. He eventually went to Korea University and joined Doosan in the 2023 second round with the 19th rank in the early draft.
It wasn’t easy until his debut. He joined the first-team squad only after reaching an agreement with the victim. Kim Yu-seong said, “The victim forgave me. Like everyone else while playing baseball, I think I am coming to the stage of my dreams, so I will do my best to help the team.”
On the 27th, Kim Yoo-seong was named in the first team entry. The next day, he went straight to his debut match and did his duty silently. The lead hitter, Choi Jeong, was treated as a shortstop ground ball, signaling a good start. It was Choi Jeong, who recorded a home run in the previous at-bat, but Kim Yu-seong was hit by a 149km fastball. Subsequent hitter Guillermo Heredia also turned second base with a ground ball.
Yuseong Kim posted two out counts. The third batter, Oh Tae-gon, also induced a ground ball to first base. However, first baseman Yang Seok-hwan made a catch mistake. The inning could have ended, but there was no defensive help. From this time on, Kim Yoo-seong was shaken little by little. In the face-to-face confrontation with the follow-up hitter Han Yu-seom, he gave up a walk after a full-count battle.
Catcher Jang Seung-hyeon climbed the mound once and read Kim Yu-seong, but to no avail. The pitch was not caught. He also dedicated a walk to Kim Seong-hyun. However, Kim Yu-seong finished his first appearance for the first team by striking out Park Seong-han.
