At the time, Ryu Hyun-jin threw a variety of pitches, including fastballs (29), cut fastballs (10), curves (11), and changeups (12).

First, coach Lee praised Ryu Hyun-jin’s continued command.

Manager Lee said, “I checked that I had perfect control over the four pitches,” and added,

“It is much more difficult for batters to hit pitchers with better pitch control than with speed,

so I think I will have to analyze it properly (next time).

I am very cautious” He said.

Coach Lee compared, “I had good control in the past,

but I probably had more strength back then because I was younger than I am now,

and now my control itself is definitely better.”

At the same time, he recalled the time when he had a meal with Ryu Hyun-jin at Hanwha from 2006 to 2009.

Manager Lee, who has an active batting average of 0.271, said with a smile,

“I was able to hit .277 because we were on my team and didn’t face them a few times.”

Regarding velocity, which was considered Ryu Hyun-jin’s weakness he said, “I think his pitch and speed are much better than in the United States.

“The maximum speed was 148 km/h, so it is no exaggeration to say that my physical condition is almost 100%,” he said.

“Before going to the United States, the team’s batting was not good, but now (Hanwha’s) batting is also improving.”

He cautioned, “If you throw comfortably (on the mound), you will have a pretty good pitch.”
