The venue of the national prestigious high school baseball game is Busan. Teams related to Gyeongnam and Busan are practically home grounds. Many school officials gather to watch the game. Interest is bound to be higher.
According to the baseball world on the 5th, Gyeongnam High School, Busan High School, and Masan High School still boast good power in this tournament. Busan High School is considered a favorite for the championship, and there are many evaluations that Gyeongnam High School and Masan High School are also teams that do not easily lose.
Gyeongnam High School has consistently participated in the 1st National High School Baseball Championship. Even without mentioning Choi Dong-won and Lee Dae-ho, they produced numerous professionally nominated players. Gyeongnam High School was the winner of the Golden Lion last year. With the graduation of Kim Beom-seok (LG) and Shin Young-woo (NC), the power has loosened somewhat, but Gyeongnam High School is still Gyeongnam High School. In particular, there are many good players in the sophomore year.메이저놀이터
The center of the team is 3rd year sidearm Na Yunho. There is also catcher Lee Hee-seong (junior). Right-hander Kim Woo-hyeok (junior), who returned after a one-year suspension, is also a pitcher aiming for a professional career. Outfielder Cho Se-ik (junior), who is recovering from an anterior cruciate ligament injury, is also an outfielder to note. Among the sophomores, there is Park Siwon. He is one of the pitchers aiming for a top pick next season. His pitch is good enough that he is already recording mid-140km. In addition, Kang Do-hyeon and Joo Yang-joon, who are in the second grade, are also famous in the Busan area as players with good talent since their little baseball days. The two were pitchers who threw fastballs in middle school, but now only hitters.
Since Busan High School was the winning team of last year’s Bonghwangdaegi, there are many famous players. Representatively, there is ace Won Sang-hyun (3rd grade). The current evaluation stabs the sky. He reigns as the best pitcher in the Busan area to the extent that he is aiming for the ‘Big 5’ at this point beyond the first round nomination. He was the main player in last year’s phoenix victory, pitching salty water with 2 runs in 21 innings. His main weapon is a four-seam fastball that reaches 149 km and a curveball.
Sidearm Ye Geon-woo (junior) is also a talent that can aim for a pro. His good control and fast speed of 140 km are his strengths. The same goes for Seong Young-tak (3rd grade). As a right-handed orthodox pitcher, he is a pitcher who leads Busan High School with good ball control in the starting lineup. Young-Tak Sung, Gun-Woo Ye, and Sang-Hyun Won are the best pride of Busan High School. In addition, center fielder Yeon Jun-won (junior) and catcher Park Seong-jun (junior), who are good at batting, are also notable resources. However, it is regrettable that Park Chan-yeop, a sophomore shortstop with good defense, left due to injury.
Masan High School has very few third-year students. However, there are many good players in the second year. So, many experts predict Masan High’s great leap forward next season. The four second graders are special resources. The pitchers are Kim Yun-ha, Ok Jin-yul, and Park Seong-bin. Kim Yun-ha and Ok Jin-yul are orthodox right-handers boasting a tall height of 190 cm. Ok Jin-yul is a transfer student from Gyeongju High School, and Kim Yun-ha is currently serving as the ace of Masan High School. Park Sung-bin is a sidearm. In addition, catcher Shin Min-woo (2nd year) is a catcher who is aiming for a pro nomination next season. There are many evaluations that he is better than his senior Shin Yong-seok (NC). He is evaluated as a top-tier resource for the 2024 catcher draft. Masan High School coach Koh Yoon-seong promised to promote, saying, “I will show Min-woo Shin at the Gyeongnam Classics this time. I will stick with him properly.”
The National Prestigious High School Baseball Championship will be held for five days, starting with the opening game between last year’s champions Deoksu High School and Gyeongbuk High School on the 8th and ending on the 12th at Hyundai Motor Dream Ball Park in Gijang-gun, Busan.
